Royal Wedding Bridal Shower - Yellow and Blue Wedding Inspiration

I was thrilled when the one and only Jenn, (THE Hostess of the Mostess)  asked me to do floral arrangements for a Royal Wedding inspired photo shoot for the TV Guide Channel.
As I blog this beautiful photo shoot designed by Jenn, I am watching the Royal Wedding. Kate is so stunning, and Wills is dashing and handsome, everything a real life prince and princess should be!!! I am in love with their love... How could I not have jumped into the Royal Wedding mania?? And now, I am pleased to share our photo shoot, with a Royal Wedding Bridal Shower theme...

 We used beautiful yellow blooms for the centerpieces... That lush burst of sunshine is created with china mums, ranunculus, daffodils, billy balls, carnations, roses, mums, tulips and calla lilies...
 We created yellow button mum and cushion mum pomanders for the tea cups - so whimsical!!
I love the contrast of the bright yellow and the deep sapphire blue... The gold chivari chairs are not only elegant but CLASSIC. 
 The delicious dessert table - love!!!

Congratulations William and Catherine!! 
Our modern day fairytale.I am sure he made his mama, our beloved Princess Diana, very proud today...
And I hope you enjoyed our modern Royal Wedding Shower!!

sTORIbook Weddings - Tori and Dean's Shabby Chic Wedding - Behind the Scenes!!

We actually had posted this blog back in December, but we were politely asked to remove it until the show aired... We taped 4 out of the 8 shows of Tori and Dean's sTORIbook Weddings. We were honored when after creating our first wedding (shabby chic) with Tori and Dean, they asked us to finish the season with them!! We are still waiting on professional images from the photographer to share with you, but in the meantime, here are some behind the scenes images we snapped. Due to the time frame of the show, there is not enough time to show all of the details we worked so hard on. This wedding had so MANY details, and we are only sharing some of them here with you.... Enjoy!!

We used lace wrapped candles everywhere. The main flower of the wedding was the white daisy, because that is Erienne's favorite flower. 
However, we also incorporated many pink peony blooms.

 Jeni's fabulous vanity was used near the photo taking area. We filled the drawers with white daisies and accented the top with eclectic vintage pieces and lush light blue hydrangea in white milk glass.

Another shabby chic element we used were strands of pearls tucked into floral arrangements.

 I really love the outdoor space at Calamigos Ranch, it is so magical and cozy. Tori created so many different lounge areas and vignettes that helped make the reception more intimate for the guests. In lieu of traditional round tables, there was lounge sitting and one long wooden table.
This dress form from {Found} was a special surprise for the bride because her mom is a tailor and actually made her wedding dress!! Initially, Tori wanted us to cover the form with daisies, however it turned out we all liked the chic alternative of a daisy belt and corsage.

 LOVED all of the different vignettes created with the vintage furniture. It really completed the shabby chic look.

 We had clusters of fresh flowers everywhere!! It really finished the vignettes and lounge areas. We created clusters with light blue and white hydrangea, peonies and daisies in various eclectic containers, mason jars and milk glass pieces from Tori's own personal collection.




This was the adorable photo taking area where guests could sit and pose for the photographer. Then the pictures were attached to a board as a keepsake for Erienne and Jeremy.
 Miss T trying out the photo shoot area before guests arrived...

These are some of the frames we saw Dean create on the show. Some of them were used as decor on the entrance table. LOVE!!!
 Erienne did not like the green carpet, so Tori and Dean had the whole inside done in white carpet. It was truly stunning and completely changed the room. They also added material to the walls. The different shabby chic fabrics and vintage furniture looked stunning in the room!
 Another vignette inside the reception room...

The candles on the fireplace really added to the ambiance of the evening...
 Tori is involved with every little detail of the wedding, including last minute furniture changes...
 One of their comfort food stations, love the french fry cones!!
 Melody of Sweet and Saucy Shop did an AMAZING job on the dessert table. Serious eye candy!! And I love how the cake coordinated with Erienne's two dresses. 
 And this is what it really looks like behind the scenes... the camera and production crew shooting the last details before the guests arrive. It was a fun and exciting experience!!

 That's me in the background putting the finishing touches on our table scape while Tori adjusts the microphones.

 Tori came up with this idea to create French market style bunches of daisies for the guests to take home as a favor. There was also a tag attached to each bunch letting the guests know, a donation was made on their behalf to a charity.

Also, you can check out Melody of Sweet & Saucy Shop's blog for more detail pictures of her amazing dessert display as well as more of Found Vintage Rental's items.

And you can view the full episode on Oxygen... look for the Shabby Chic Wedding for Erienne and Jeremy. You can find more information on sTORIbook Weddings here...
Stay tuned for the professional pictures post with gorgeous images of our beautiful bride and all of the ceremony details!! We are excited to share our other three weddings with y'all as well...xoxo

Summer Wedding with Tommy Bahamas Flair - Fullerton Wedding Florist

We loved Anna and Eduardo's summer wedding... The style was crisp, cool and clean. Or the style was as Eduardo would say, "Tommy Bahamas boinks Ralph Lauren". We incorporated flowers in shades of soft butter yellow, mango, tangerine, and celadon with pops of dark green foliage.
Anna envisioned a wedding day where all of their friends and family would come dressed casually, dance and celebrate their love.

Anna's bridal bouquet was created with butter yellow stock, mango calla lilies, green cymbidium orchids, ivory roses, and orange cymbidium orchids.

Probably my favorite pair of shoes ever!! Anna actually bought them in Vegas on her bachelorette weekend trip with the money she won gambling. Talk about lucky shoes ; )
Her son who was also the ring bearer, carried a wooden box with rolled ti leaves, accented with cymbidium orchids and a little bed of moss for the rings.
A modern approach to the ring bearer's "pillow".

And the flower girl carried a smaller, coordinating wooden box filled with fresh flowers.

The ceremony decor featured a custom built wooden frame, adorned with hanging rose pomanders, strings of white dendrobium orchids and crystal stands. We used sheer white flowy material to soften the frame.
 The aisle was lined with rectangle wooden boxes filled with white hydrangea accented with monstera leaves and rolled ti leaves for a tropical flair.
 Eduardo's boutonniere was created with a single mango calla lily, accented with tiny rolled ti leaves. I prefer to wrap the stem in ribbon because it gives the boutonniere a more finished look.
The centerpieces were created with orchids, dahlias, hydrangea, calla lilies and roses. We created a mix of high and low centerpieces to give the room more depth.

Muchas gracias Anna y Eduardo xoxo

And many, many thanks to the fabulous Joel with Studio EMP for the BEAUTIFUL images!!
