Elisa and Komron are a very special couple to me, I honestly felt like Elisa and I were friends from the moment we met. Our initial flower consultations involved a lot of chatting and about way more than flowers…I seriously love this girl! Elisa has impeccable taste and wanted a soft and feminine feel with light vintage touches. We created the look by using antique hydrangeas, ruffly ranunculus, garden roses and the most amazing black centered anemones. For a little bit of a shimmery vintage feel we used Mercury Glass vessels and antique silver urns. Kelley Lee Gin of Picture Perfect Events added glistening gold linens and sequin accents to make the event feel modern with a warm undertone. Besides all of the gorgeous decor that they had, they added a super special touch that I have never seen before…they brought in PUPPIES for their guests to canoodle with!! It made for fantastic pictures and I am SURE for a few entertaining stories! Thank you to Ashley Rose Photography for another impeccably captured event…seriously girl, you are talented. Congratulations to my sweet couple Elisa and Komron!
I had to repost some of my absolute favorite pictures. These were from a photo shoot that we did at The Historic Casino in San Clemente. It is one of my very favorite new venues. It is filled with so much old San Clemente charm but in a new and modern way. The gardens are complete with a minimalistic succulent landscape, white stucco walls and a stunning view of the ocean just a block away…you have to check it out!! Also, another one of my very favorite vendors is in this shoot…Found Vintage Rentals…all of the furniture is one of a kind, restored vintage pieces that she rents out for weddings, parties, showers etc…Check them both out!!
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.
