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 d├ęcor 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. 

And her shoes, were BEAUTIFUL.... I really really want these shoes. 


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.

We were so blessed to work with such an amazing team of talented women. Angel and Anna of Events of Love and Splendor are amazing wedding coordinators and event designers!! Not only did they keep the day flowing seamlessly, but they are so detailed and organized. Another amazing duo, Jeni and Allison of Found Vintage Rentals. Found has the most amazing rentals as well as the most amazing prop stylists. Their rentals helped complete Bianca and Matt's wedding vision. 

I love how Bianca explained the meaning behind the "Love Succulently" theme as well as the reason for the meaning of Bob Marley's songs in their relationship on the programs that were provided for guests as they entered the pre-ceremony cocktail area.

 Bianca and Matt asked their family members for wedding photos to display on a large over sized farm house table provided  by Found. We used old wooden boxes, gold candlesticks and other eclectic pieces as accents as well as a variety of fresh succulents.

There are so many more details and beautiful images to share that I am breaking one breathtaking wedding into two posts... So stay tuned for the ceremony and reception post!!!. In the meantime, Bianca and Matt's wedding was also featured on Style Me Pretty... in two parts as well!!!
