Love Succulently-Sunstone Winery Wedding
To say that I am a fan of Jasmine Star is an understatement. To say I am a fan of her twin sister Bianca is another understatement. I was absolutely honored to help create the design and flowers for Bianca and Matt's wedding this past September. I have never worked on a wedding before that held so much meaning in all of the details. I truly believe that LOVE is in the details and was over the moon that Bianca felt the same way. Bianca and Matt's wedding theme was Love Succulently and I really couldn't describe it better than Bianca...
"Love Succulently was the theme created for our wedding. My full name means white flower, which represents love. Matt is reminiscent of a succulent; layered, intricate, understated, and enduring. The theme was a natural manifestation of who we are. To accent our day, we had eclectic vintage pieces throughout the ceremony and reception representing timeless love and enduring faith. Mixed with modern décor elements, the event played off the design elements of our ceremony and reception location. Our colors were vanilla, chocolate, merlot, and sage."
This has to be one of my favorite bridal bouquets of all time, Bianca's bouquet was a lush and delicious mix of merlot peonies, burgundy dahlias, ivory garden roses, gardenias, white lisianthis, gray and green brasilia berries, as well as echeveria succulents in shades of gray and green. The stems were banded with ivory satin ribbon and accented with an ornate gold chain link pattern trim.
The ring bearer's box was created with an assortment of succulents, accented with moss in a rustic brown wooden box with a brown and gold metallic trim.

In lieu of a basket, we created a flower girl purse filled with succulents, accented
with pearls and ivory satin ribbon.
I have to share Bianca and Matt's wedding invitation because I love it and I think it is so important to set the tone of your wedding. Their invitation was printed on custom designed wine labels and delivered in hand stained wooden boxes.
