Crooked Willow Farms Reception | Jodi + Drew Part II

We do custom weddings.  It's our thing.  We want our brides to feel special and valued on their big day and part of that is personalizing their flowers to their unique personalities and interests.  For some this means incorporating their grandmother's vintage brooch on their bouquet.  For others, it means using flowers that have special meaning to them.  For Jodi it meant designing flowers that not only coordinated with Crooked Willow's country luxe feel, but that also celebrated her and Drew's love story.  To do this, we took one of Jodi's favorite flowers - sunflowers - and created centerpieces that revolved around this flower and arranged them in hand-stained wooden boxes that had a each personalized "J + D" carved into them.  For some we designed sunflower pomanders on giant manzinita branches (these were over 5 ft. tall!).  And for a lower centerpiece, we designed a country-luxe arrangement of hydrangea, sunflowers, billy balls, wheat, and dusty miller.  I love how they both turned out.  

The other thing I love about this wedding was the perfectly coordinated details.  From start to finish, there was a strong sunflower, country luxe theme that manifested itself in each detail.  Escort Cards were attached to small metal horseshoes.  Each place setting had a rattan charger plate with a packet of sunflower seeds as favors.  All around Crooked Willow were hand-painted wooden signs directing guests where to go.  There was a western wheel chandelier that hung above the dance floor with a swanky lounge area for relaxing, complete with western furniture provided by Crooked Willow.  Jessica did fantastic job with all these details and was a joy to work with every step of the way.  Congratulations, Jodi & Drew!  You two are the sweetest!!!

I was in love with this cake made by Rachael at Intricate Icings.  She is seriously amazing.  
It was a stunning work of art!!!
