Here are a few photos from the wedding I did in July at the Enchanted Forest in Fallbrook. If you want to see more you can check them out on the Exquisite Blooms website, under "Featured". All the pictures were taken by their photographer, Robin at Wedding Day Reflections 619.687.6206.
The idea was to keep the flowers soft and romantic but large and luscious. For Melissa's bouquet, I used white cymbidium orchids, white lisianthus, white and soft pink roses, a little seeded eucalyptus and white peonies. Her stems were wrapped in white satin ribbon accented with 3 vintage crystal pins, her moms rosary and a picture of her late father. For her mom, I made a similar bouquet but used bear grass as a fun accent and shape. I had a lot of fun working with Melissa and her mom Madeline on this wedding, I feel like I really made friends and I hope to work with them again soon.
On the bridesmaids bouquets I used large pink peonies, hot pink and cream roses, fuchsia calla lilies, pink lisianthus and peach carnations. They really popped off the soft pink satin dresses and everyone looked gorgeous.
This weekend I had a small but very cool and very beautiful beach themed wedding. It was held at the Hilton Mission Bay on the "Garden Bay" lawn. For the bride and groom I designed a centerpiece made from sand blasted manzanita branches adorned with balls of white flowers and finished off with starfish and raffia on the base.
For the belly bars I used glass vases filled with solid white carnations and adorned with the same accents as the centerpieces. I know that everyone hates carnations but as I have said before, "when used bunched tightly by themselves, they have an elegant beauty." Don't you think that the look kind of like a sea creature? Like coral or sea sponges...maybe? Perfect for a beach wedding!
