50 Shades Freed Inspiration Board

With the recent announcement that 50 Shades of Grey is turning into a movie, we decided to blog about how we felt after reading the trilogy! SPOILERS AHEAD: Don’t read ahead if you haven’t finished the trilogy!

“They have the tent set up again and beautifully decorated in pale pink, silver, and ivory with its sides open, facing the bay.”  After reading the third and final book in the Fifty Shades of Grey Trilogy, Fifty Shades Freed, I was bummed that Christian and Ana’s wedding wasn’t written as detailed as I wanted it to be. We all waited for it to happen and E. L. James gave us less than 3 pages to picture it in our heads! With the little details given, my mind soared with possibilities of what their wedding could have looked like.

We love peonies, so peonies were a definite must. This pale pink peony bouquet would be perfection with its simplicity in Ana’s hands. Bouquet by: Petal Productions. Photo by KT Merry Photography

In our bundle, we incorporated a lot of pale pinks. Using chiffon and lace we wanted to see their wedding seem effortless and timeless, something that flowed beautifully and looked simple– something easy, unlike the beginning stages of their relationship! We even incorporated some nautical signage to symbolize the boathouse proposal and Christian’s passion for sailing.

The Look Of Love Event, Orange County

Last November, we were so excited to be a part of California Wedding Day’s The Look of Love Event at the Chuck Jones Center. We had the pleasure of working with the most amazing team headed by LVL Weddings and Events!

It was so fun to create this hanging centerpiece installation using pretty coral peonies, vibrant tulips, and roses, and filled with lush greenery; we seriously love it. Ps. Can someone please order one so we can recreate it?!

We kept the tablescape pretty simple to really make the hanging centerpiece stand out using only single peony blooms in gold bud vases with candlesticks, decanters and votives.

Purple Wedding Bouquet

See the Full Bouquet Recipe Feature on Wedding Chicks!

For this bouquet, I wanted to incorporate a lot of texture but all in the purple tones.  I used the lilacs and the fuchsia peonies as the main focus because they are simply incredible.  I used the pale purple Antheriums as a leaf texture as opposed to a flower, the deep purple plum leaves to give it a little drama, and the different types of ferns to give the bouquet a whimsical and airy feel.  The purple Anemones are another personal favorite and can give a certain wildflower feeling that I love.  This mixture of blooms is also super sweet smelling in addition to it’s stunning combination of purple hues.
