To celebrate the ‘Lovers of Love’ on their day we like to call Valentine’s Day we are offering a Valentine’s Day Delivery Shop!  This isn’t your typical Dozen Roses or “Valentine’s Mix”  Flower Delivery, folks.  We will only have the Creme de la Creme, the best of the best, top notch blooms in the house.

The process is simple, we will be hand-selecting the flowers to create these one of a kind ever so stylish arrangements.  They will be in a simple and classic white ceramic vase filled with a tasteful blend of garden roses, dutch hydrangea, tulips, anemones, lilacs and peonies.  Colors will be a dramatic and romantic mix of the most feminine hues, unless of course you prefer something different.  There are four different price points to choose from:

 $85 | $150 | $200 | $250

{Cinco De Mayo Wedding}

ROSS0059

What a FUN wedding this one was with the incredibly talented wedding designer, Lindye Galloway!! The wedding was actually on Cinco De Mayo so there was a lot of Mexican Infused design throughout the wedding.  Lindye created a custom tile runner for the aisle that was decopaged with Papel Picado…amaze.  She also created the custom backdrop fit with Papel Picado Chandeliers and streaming ribbons.  We brought everything to life with TONS of coral peonies, peach garden roses and the sweetest little sweet peas, all within or on bright white vessels for a bright and modern feel.  The Bride’s Bouquet was the most simple and gorgeous mix of white peonies and astilbe, while the Bridesmaids has bouquets of coral peonies, roses, sweet peas and astilbe. Enjoy!

Ivory Wedding Inspiration

StylingStartsHere__chrisjenn_photos_SSH007_low

This lovely little shoot was taken out at Sand Canyon with Melissa Robles of Styling Starts Here and Chris + Jenn Photos.  ISn’t the background SO pretty?! For the design here, I was going for a beautiful and slightly modern take on the rustic flowers.  I wanted to create something classic and elegant, yet still suitable for an outdoor backdrop.  I used white hydrangeas, soft ivory astilbe, craspedia, amazing ivory/green garden roses,  with accents of millet and ferns.

Rancho Las Lomas New Year’s Eve Wedding

Where do I even begin?! WOW! This was definitely a wedding for the books, for so many reasons.  Monika and Steve were one of the couples that you look at and you can honestly and truly feel the love that is shared between them.  Monika has such a warm and loving spirit to her and you can feel that she has a desire to live life to it’s absolute fullest, love as much as she possibly can and most of all you can tell that she has a desire to never stop growing in herself or her relationships.  Throughout the process of the wedding planning, we never talked about these things, but you just knew they were there, it was a feeling of sincerity and that she had such a deep and loving heart.  When she would see you, she would Thank You and tell you how happy she was that you were there in this experience with her, and you could TELL she truly truly meant it because she followed it up with the warmest hug! Monika has truly inspired me as a person and I am grateful for that. Congratulations to Monika and Steve, you have a BEAUTIFUL life ahead of you!

The boutonnieres were made of wintery white ranunculus and Brunia Berries wrapped in a textured ivory ribbon with gray velvet accents.

How gorgeous is this custom ribbon that Monika had made?! Each Bridesmaid had a different line from 1 Corinthians that we hand tied around their bouquets of white anemones, garden roses, ranunculus and of course that beautiful and wintery dusty miller.

Monika’s Bouquet was made of a feminine and wintery mix of garden roses, ranunculus, white anemones, brunia berries, and dusty miller that we hand tied in a beautifully pleated ribbon wrap and her custom linen ribbon that read “I Z Wed 12.31.12”  The Z is for her Husbands last name Zeldin…so sweet!!

The Ceremony was only lit by Bistro lights and candlelit which made for the warmest kind of light.  It was gorgeous. Stunning.  In the center of the U-shaped Ceremony was the softly lit Chuppah that was very simple decorated with branches, hanging candles and simple blooms.  This just might be one of my favorites!

The centerpieces were a wonderfully eclectic mix of vintage metals, mercury glass, and vintage crystal vessels.  Some were filled with wintery white blooms with deep purple accents and some were filled with hand dipped gold dusted fruits…AMAZE! In between the arrangements there were pockets of driftwood with tufts of wintery white flowers and vintage gold votives nestled in.

Behind the Bride and the Groom, Lindsay from LVL Weddings and Events placed the Found Vintage mantle piece that we adorned with driftwood arrangements and candlelight.

This New Years Eve Wedding was just plain AMAZING! We are so grateful to have been a part of all of it and what a way to cap off a wonderful year for our business! May this set the tone for the year to come!  Congratulations to Steve and Monika and a HUGE Thank you to the most amazing planner Lindsay Longacre of LVL Events and Christine Bentley who got these images out SUPER fast and all of the other awesome vendors who made this event what it was.  Happy New Year Everyone!
