A Perfect Garden Wedding…

Here is another of our favorite weddings so far this year. Melinda M. and Dan K. had a gorgeous wedding on 6-7-08 at Ascension Chapel and The Gardens at Malmaison. We helped out with the flowers and LOVED how they reflected the personality and style of the bride and the whole event! Photos by Tim Pastor, Artisan Photography. Here’s a tip for all the men out there (Hint, Hint!): Dan sent his bride of vase full of wedding flowers for …

Summer Centerpieces

Here is a “collection” of some of the centerpieces and other flower decor that we’ve done this spring and summer. Bright reds and pinks made these roses and freesia pop against the white table linens. These hurricane candles with a lush flower wreaths were perfect for a summer garden-themed wedding. Small jars of Esperance roses and bells of Ireland were a great cimpliment to the pink washed walls at the Mad Art Gallery. Tall trumpet vases with large white calla …

Wedding at the Coronado

When everything comes together, a wedding can be just beautiful. Emily Reed’s wedding, on June 21, is a wonderful example. Brightly colored dresses and flowers, and the Coronado Ballroom all played their part in helping the bride’s vision become reality. All of these gorgeous shots were taken by Lace. Emily carried a clutch of mango mini calla lilies, to match her bridesmaids’ colors. The bridesmaids carried mango callas, cherry brandy roses, coral spray roses, and green hydrangea as a splash …

Splashes of Color

There are always ways to brighten up your wedding color scheme with flowers. Whether used in moderation or as a main focus, bright, citrus colors are a fun look for any season. Here are some examples: Stephanie (Young) Margolis, who got married on a beautiful day in April, chose lots of bright colors for herself and for her bridesmaids. Hot pink and orange gerbera daisies popped against the sage green dresses. The bride’s bouquet was a mix of the bridesmaids …

“Ernestine, my bride, I love you so much…”

These were the words spoken by my 90-year-old grandfather last Sunday at 2:30pm. My grandmother and my cousin Sarah were each holding one of his hands. He passed away at 3:05. I am so thankful that he was able to say these words to my ailing grandmother, his wife of over 66 years. He was smart and alert right to the end (he was sitting up in bed reading the Sunday paper that very morning!). As my children and I …
