Daniel + Rachel | Irvine, CA

My brother-in-law got married this August!  It was an beautiful day with a homespun, casual, family-style feel.  Guests enjoyed lawn games and BBQ brisket and sat under the shade on long rows of picnic tables adorned with wild flowers arranged in mason jars and gingham.  It was a wonderful day!

Congratulations, Daniel & Rachel!  I am so happy for the two of you.  Marriage is a blast and I pray that yours is filled with love, respect, and joy overflowing.  I love you both so much.

Vail Wedding Florist | The Donovan Pavilion | Heather + Josh

Ever since I was given a yellow canopy bed as a little girl, I have always loved yellow.  Lucky for me, I got to do many a yellow wedding this year.  But my absolute favorite pairing with yellow is grey.  Charcoal, Pewter, Grey...whatever shade, I love it all.  

This wedding excudes CLASS.  Classy attire, classy colors, and classic beauty for flowers.  Plus, my dear friend, David Gaston, of Gaston Photography got some of my favorite ring bearer and flower girl shots to date.  They are a precious pair! 

Heather---I loved working with you every step of the way for your wedding!  You are the definition of true beauty.  Congrats to you and Josh!

Yellow Flower Girl Pomander made of yellow spray roses, with a lace loop.  Ring Bearer is wearing a mini boutonnière that matches the groomsmen boutonnières.  

The Bridal Bouquet was made of peonies, white and green hydrangea, gardenia, and veronica.  

Groom & Groomsmen Boutonnières were made of dusty miller leaf, scabiosa pods, and lily grass loops.  Tied in yellow ribbon.  

Chair Arrangements were made of peonies, spray roses, and garden roses, with varying shades of yellow and grey ribbon trails that looked amazing blowing in the breeze.

The Bridesmaid Bouquets were wrapped in yellow ribbon to coordinate with dresses with a white lace overlay.  

Half of the Centerpieces were tall cylinder vases with curly willow and white and green hydrangea.  With dendrobium orchids attached to the branches.  

The other half were a lower version of the tall centerpiece, with twisted curly willow inside the vase and a charming arrangement of white and green hydrangea.  Each vase had a lace banding.

A Vintage Affair Rentals + Laura Murray Photography | E Session

Have I ever mentioned how much I love Laura Murray's photography?  Well, I do!  Her soft, vintagey outdoor engagement sessions make me swoon and are completely unique to her style.  I love any chance to work with her.

Well, now I have a new friend too!  Meet Jessica, from A Vintage Affair Rentals.  This is her adorable engagement shoot photographed by the talented Laura Murray Photography.  I had the chance to meet Jessica a few weeks ago and had such a good time getting to know her.  And her company rocks!  If you are in need of amazing vintage details for your wedding like a sweet antique dresser for your dessert bar, tinted mason jars, flag banners, escort card displays, etc, she is your girl.  She has an amazing online inventory and is always collecting new vintage items to add to her collection of rentals.  

We so enjoyed working with Jessica and Laura to create a bouquet for this swoon-worthy engagement shoot!  ENJOY!
