{L’Auberge Wedding}

Kim and Garrett are such an inspirational couple to me.  Garrett is one of the many amazing soldiers that serves for our Country and Kim is one of the amazingly strong wives that supports him.  Every time that I met with Kim I was updated with her wedding planning of course as well as all of the things that she was doing to create a life for her and her husband to be while he was over seas…This woman worked her butt off at multiple jobs, in the gym late night, house hunting AND moving! AS WELL as planning a beautiful wedding and honeymoon completely on her own! They inspire me!  I think it takes an extra strong connection, faith and trust to be able to endure what they endure.  Garrett, Thank you for everything that you do for our Country and Kim, Thank you for keeping him strong and loved!

Now you can enjoy some of their beautiful wedding photos even more with that little slice of background information.  Kim was trying to create a vintage, beachy and chic feel.  We used tons of warm ivories, pale taupes, natural elements like driftwood, balsa wood flowers and manzanita branches.  They were married at the beautiful L’Auberge Resort in Del Mar, Ca…a truly breathtaking view! For the Bridesmaids, Kim gifted hand made clutch purses made by the super talented Ally Lossness of Moda Viajando Custom Bags, and we accented them with mini Bridesmaid’s Bouquets made of beachy orchids and balsa wood flowers.  I LOVE the idea of clutches either in lieu of bouquets or in addition to them…you can mismatch them or totally coordinate them and I think that they are such an awesome and useful bridesmaid gift.  Such a beautiful wedding, Congrats Kim and Garrett!

{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 !!!”
