Monica and Anthony's Wedding on July 3, 2010!

I loved working with Monica as she chose her Vintage Hollywood theme for her wedding! I special ordered huge, champagne Cafe Au Lait dahlias from a favorite wholesaler and I was blown away at how pretty they were!  I absolutely love working with dahlias in the summer and fall months!

Monica added her grandmother's vintage brooch to her bouquet handle so it became her "Something Old" and also her "Something Blue". I also added some delicate swarovski crystals to her bouquet for a hint of bling. She was ecstatic!

The mother of the bride's bouquet was soft and delicate. I used Candy Bianca roses with white astilbe, and also some seeded eucalyptis.

I LOVED the church decor! We adorned the pews with huge champagne dahlias, long ivy, and ivory satin. The altar was decorated with tall cylinders filled with 6 foot tall curly willow. We added a soft pink ribbon at the rim of the vase and filled it with lots of soft pink and cream dahlias! This has become a really popular option in place of the traditional one-sided arrangement. Congratulations to you guys! It was a beautiful weekend for 2 beautiful brides!

Kim and Nash's Wedding on July 3, 2010

I had so much fun creating Kim and Nash's flowers for their wedding last weekend. We used very fresh, vibrant colors in varieties that are summer favorites!

 Kim's bouquet had large green cymbidium orchids, hot pink Explorer gerberas, Hot Princess roses, seeded eucalyptis, Esperance roses, and pink calla lilies. We wanted shades of pinks with fresh green for the overall theme. The bridesmaids carried only gerbera daisies in 4 shades of pink and the men wore pale pink Candy Bianca roses, with the tape covered in watermelon dress fabric. 

I loved the pink orchids that we used for the reception, we put them everywhere!
Pink orchids were on half of the guest tables, covering the dessert tables, on the card table as seen above, and also decorating the divider that separated the cocktail hour from the reception.
I loved the colors and look forward to seeing the cake done by The Sweet Life soon!
