J+M Wedding | Kohl Mansion| Burlingame

What a way to start the wedding season!  As you know - I've been on a little break because of my new addition to the family.  I was very excited to get my hands on some flowers again and this wedding was the perfect way to start my wedding season.  The weather was suppose to be rainy and stormy with thunder showers  (what are the chances of rain in June?!) but it ended up being pretty sunny and everything came together beautifully.

Sneak Peek: Centerpiece Trial

Here's a centerpiece I whipped together for one of bride's to take a look at.  She wanted colorful, vibrant and fun - and that is what I gave her!  Perfect for her upcoming summer wedding.  I can't wait to see a whole room filled with these!

Here we took out the green "snowballs" and replaced them with lemon leaf.

C + J Wedding | San Francisco Yacht Club | San Francisco

What can I say about this wedding?  I can say that I absolutely adore the bride.  Caroline and I became friends years ago when we started teaching at the same school.  We shared many late nights at school working (how the heck do you use this copy machine?!)  and soon after, many dinners, conversations and laughter through the years.  We spent 6 weeks together touring around Europe (we were great travel buds) and helped each other through so many things like break-ups, vacations, family stuff and so many other ups and downs that it would take a novel for me to tell you.  So you get the point, right?  Caroline is my girl.  She was also my go to gal when it came to flowers.  She was my assistant for many years and I was so sad to hear she was moving to Seattle but also so happy that she was starting an adventure of her own with her new life and new husband.

So of course when she got engaged - there was no question that I was doing her flowers!  I also attended the wedding - so I took photos when I could but I really wanted to enjoy the moment with her and celebrate.

Caroline wanted something simple - so we went with shades of white with green accents.  A classic combo.
