T & S Wedding

Earlier this summer my dear friends T & S tied the knot. I was honored to do their wedding florals for them. T knew she wanted a modern wedding, but was open from the very beginning with what I wanted to bring to the table. They got married at the Earl Burns Miller Japanese Garden at CSULB, which was lush all throughout so my florals didn’t need to make a big appearance. Their reception was in the Sculpture Garden at the MOLAA in Long Beach and it was a feast for the eyes… the vivid colored walls, the fun quirky sculptures, the various levels and planes of space… I loved it! We decided to go with white, yellow, green and pops of teal. Please enjoy the photos from Kawabori Photography! Wedding coordinator: Zoie Events.

We decided to go with jelly belly favors, and I helped design the labels. The guest names were on the top of the boxes, and their table numbers were on the front… talk about personalized.

Check out that color. Beautiful shot. T’s bouquet is definitely one of my favorites ever. SO classic and beautiful.

There was a large stage that I dressed up with lots of pomanders… and kept it low to not obstruct the band or slideshow screen. Lots of flower balls.. what better way to incorporate florals in a sculpture garden?

So one of my favorite things right now are these particular Dianthus…. little furry balls of great green fun. Imagine the possibilities! They belong in a Dr. Seuss story … and a pair of craft wiggle eyes would be perfect! The theme for this past weekend’s Bridal shower was Girly Colorful Fun and I couldn’t help but to throw in these little guys!
