Hunger Games

Before this wedding weekend whisks me away from my computer, I want to make sure that I got one more recent shoot back up on the site.  This little lovely was brought to life with Lindye Galloway Events and Ashley Photographer.  We were going for a bit of organic Hunger Games Inspiration seeing as it was right when all of the buzz was going on about the books and the movie…the little shoot even got a little shout out from none other than Ryan Seacrest! Read on to see all of the lovely photos of the Blue Muscari Wedding Bouquet and the fancy organic centerpieces….and hop on over to Green Wedding Shoes for the full featured POST!

{The Grand Del Mar}

Matt + Navi were married at The Grand Del Mar in Del Mar, Ca.  Navi loved the Pink Peonies so we used them everywhere that we could! Her Bridal Bouquet as well as her Bridesmaids bouquets were enhanced with creamy white feather accents to create a unique and soft look.  The room for the reception was filled with golds.

Matt and I got married in May 2010 at the Grand Del Mar Resort in Del Mar, CA.  We decided to use our wedding planner’s recommended vendor for our flowers because we knew her endorsement of a vendor came highly regarded.  That is what led us to Aly over at The Vine’s Leaf.

“Going into our initial meeting, all I knew was that I wanted to somehow include pink peonies in the wedding.   She listened to my ideas and started off by showing me a portfolio of past events she had worked on to give me some ideas then had great suggestions based on the look I wanted.  More than anything I wanted my wedding to be elegant and classic with some vintage inspirations.   She was able to help me visualize this without being pushy, we had a great collaborative first session.  She worked with my budget without compromising the look I was going for and in the end, I received bouquets that included fresh and lush peonies and garden roses for the bridal party and my bouquet had full, pink peonies with ivory feather accents, absolutely gorgeous!   The centerpieces were held in an elegant gold colored candelabrum and consisted of various pink toned peonies and beautiful garden roses.  These centerpieces were dramatic, full and the focal point of the room.  Looking back on 

our big day, my husband and I loved all of the flowers, but our centerpieces – in particular – were in a class all their own. A number of people told us they were the most elegant arrangements they’d ever seen.

Throughout the process Aly was very professional, reliable and a real pleasure to work with.  On the day of the wedding she was in and out and had everything perfect and waiting for us.  I would highly recommend Aly to anyone.  She did a fantastic job and exceeded all of our expectations !!!”

{Rustic Succulent Wedding}

Vanessa + Nick had had their wedding and reception at Rancho Capistrano in San Juan.  Vanessa had a very natural and earthy feel to her wedding with tons of moss, succulent centerpieces and bright green hydrangea bouquets for her girls.  She kept everything very clean and classic looking with white tissue lanterns, white umbrellas and table linens and my most favorite detail…their all white cake with wheat grass border…so cute!

“I could go on for days with great things to say about Aly and The Vine’s Leaf. But to sum it up into one word: PHENOMENAL! I had heard so many great things around town about The Vine’s Leaf and the absolutely amazing artistry of Aly Morford. I had seen pictures of extravagant arches overflowing with flowers and the most beautiful wedding bouquets with satin wrapped stems. I had automatically assumed that Aly’s work would be out of my budget but I just HAD to get a quote. To my surprise, Aly was completely willing to work within my small budget and not sacrifice on quality products and craftsmanship. She worked with me along the way – showing me sample centerpieces, suggesting ways to make my budget stretch and assuring me that she would make my vision come to life. Aly created unique centerpieces filled with purple and green succulents for each table, fun bouquets of hydrangeas for the bridal party and the cutest bed of wheatgrass for our cake to sit on. Her work truly completed the look of our wedding. I couldn’t have asked for a better florist to work with!” Vanessa Lentine, Bride.

{Rustic Wedding Ideas}

Kristen + Morgan tied the knot at Dove Canyon in Rancho Santa Margarita.  Kristin had a very rustic and wild feel to her wedding infused with all of the warm elements of fall.  Her Bridesmaids were clad in olive green dresses with vintage cowboy boots and she had hers to match! We created an arch draped with orange and red fall leaves, burlap and berries.  The Bouquets were filled with twigs, twine and woodsy accents, finished off in a soft burlap wrap.  For centerpieces we used chocolate brown Manzanita Branches glowing from hanging votives and deep burgundy dahlias with sunset-tones roses…Beautiful! Take a Peek! Thank you to Jeffrey Neal Photography for the amazing images!
