Deena & Mas {part 2}

Here are some more details from Deena & Mas’ wedding… I had a great time creating everything for this wedding! The stationery, the signage, the ‘guestbook’ which was a cherry blossom branch for guest thumb prints to go on, the hair accessories Deena adorned, the program fans… so many details into this special day. What fun. Thanks again Adrienne!!

Ceremony backdrop, we wanted something simple and fun, and not take away from the ocean view:

A sprig of pink wax flower for each place setting:

We also created the dessert backdrop and dessert stands out of cups and plates! Cake & desserts by My Sweet & Saucy:

Angela & Eugene {Rancho del Cielo}

Eugela got married this past weekend… and it was such a beautiful day! Enjoy these photos from SherriJ Photography, and be sure to check out the rest of em on her blog here... the details Angela, Betty (and I’m sure Eugene) thought of were so lovely… look closely at the wood etchings .. they are dotted.. by hand! Insane. You can really see the love that filled the day in Sherri’s photos… makes me happy.

we hung burlap panels to dress up the fireplace area; lamp shades of all different shapes and sizes were hung by the fun bridal party for a cute ‘homey’ feel.

the vessels were collected by the bride and Betty from Type A Planning

I’ve got to thank my awesome assistant Marisa who helped out just before catching a plane to NY… and to team Yo. Yall are awesome… woot!

Deena & Mas {Long Beach Museum of Art}

Please check out Adrienne Gunde’s blog for the entire post on Deena & Mas’ wedding… and give her some blog love for the loveliness she captured for us.

Deena and Mas are the sweeeeeeeeetest couple, and they are so, SO cute together. I love them. 🙂 It warms my heart to see such happy photos from their wedding day. While I am not a personal fan of pinks galore, I do have to say we helped create a beautiful wedding with Deena’s vision. Not only did we do the flowers, but lots of details for the overall design… from the signage to the stationery, from the dessert table backdrop and dessert stands (out of plates and cups!)… it was a lot of fun to play with. Congrats to the Mr. & Mrs. Thank you for trusting me with your entire day. Here are some snippets, but be sure to check it all out here. Thank you Adrienne for your gorgeous photos as always!

each bridesmaid had her own floral type bouquet with dusty miller

and Ashley’s was a combination of all.

The centerpieces were all in vintage milk glass collected by the bride’s mom.

R & D [June 26, 2010] Hope Ranch, CA

photography by Ion Hartunian

The bridal bouquet consisted of peonies, Avalanche roses, freesia, gardenia, and English garden roses hand picked and cut fresh from Rose Lane Farms (RoseLaneFarms@SBCglobal.net) which is locally grown in North Hollywood. Lynne is wonderful to work with! All of the garden roses and garden peony roses were from her garden. They smelled as delightful as they looked. I was in Heaven and can’t wait to use some for my own wedding!

Isn’t she lovely?? And the cutest, sweetest flower girl with her pomander of sweet william.

Cheers to a wonderful adventure for the rest of your lives, R & D.

Stunning.

Stunning is the word I would use to best describe Ruthy on her wedding day. I would use stunning to describe Dan on his wedding day. And, stunning is the word I would use to describe Ruthy and Dan’s entire wedding day. The house they had in Hope Ranch was just breathtaking, with its ocean views from atop the cliffs… the motor court that the ceremony took place, with its serene fountain and carefully detailed paths… the hidden Japanese garden tucked along side, through a ‘secret’ entrance… JUST stunning.

Stunning.
