Rancho Las Lomas Winter Wedding

This winter wedding at Rancho Las Lomas was a dream to design... The flowers were in dramatic shades of burgundy, cranberry, champagne, plum and lush dark greenery for contrast. We added lots of candles to both the ceremony and reception for a warm and cozy ambiance. The icing on the cake was the sweet couple and the wonderful family that I am happy to call long time clients. It was an honor to work again on another family wedding years later. 
Many thanks to the talented Mary Rosenbaum for sharing these beautiful images with us!!

Amy carried a bouquet created with anemones, garden roses, hellebores, ranunculus, and imported spray roses with lush jasmine vine, maiden hair fern and bay leaf. The stems were wrapped in navy blue velvet trim. 

I am a huge fan of navy blue and love how colors really pop and contract against the dresses. 

Amy and her sweet sister Heather who I also had the pleasure of designing wedding flowers for a few years before.... The bridesmaids' bouquets were smaller versions of Amy's bouquet with stems wrapped in navy blue satin ribbon.

We created floral crowns and pomanders for the adorable flower girls who also accessorized with ivory faux fur trimmed capes. 

Amy wanted the ceremony decor to be simple and filled with candles as their ceremony began as the sun was setting. We lined the aisles with rustic wooden boxes and candles varying in height. We also added candles to the gazebo steps and on the ceremony table. The arch was framed with curly willow, greenery and flowers in shades of cranberry mauve and cream. 

Amy and her mom Kathy, one of the kindest and warmest people I have had the pleasure of knowing for almost 10 years. 

For Eric's boutonniere, I used a few hellebores blooms and wrapped the stems in velvet trim.

The long wooden guest tables were lined with a cream runner, and we placed one large overflowing compote centerpiece in the centerpiece, along with two smaller coordinating centerpieces and clusters of pillar candles surrounded by moss, vines and loose blooms.

We added a loose flowers and greenery around the base of the simple rustic cake, and more candles added to the ambiance.
