Kate & Michael: Greenhouse Wedding in Half Moon Bay

All I need to do is to show you some pictures of this stunning wedding we got to coordinate and design.  So grateful to work with our good friends Susi’s Flowers as well as E&B Photography!  Thanks to Kate for letting us Jessie play around with the design and giving me hours of chopping up wood, stripping tree trunks and learning how to dip dye large stumps!!  And I think we can all agree that…

Jaime & Corban: Carmel Valley Ranch

Okay, so it’s taken maybe two years to get posting on some pictures from this beautiful wedding at Carmel Valley Ranch.  Corban is a cheesemaker and golfer—so of course he played golf with his family and friends that weekend….and of course we had a cheese wheel that he made instead of a cake!! Love Love Loved getting to dream up the design of this beautiful and classy wedding with Jaime and her mom.  It was…

Rosemary & Jacob: Holman Ranch Wedding

What are the odds that you can have a beautiful outdoor wedding in January?  Well, in 2015 the odds were pretty darn good.  We are SO happy that the weather was perfect because Rosemary and Jake’s wedding was stunning!  Rosemary is a dear friend and it was so fun to be a part of making her California winter wedding come to life.

Alli & Tristan: Half Moon Bay

There is a substantial amount of joy that comes from working hard. I personally love taking on clients that are up for the challenge of a complicated venue (if they are pleasant to work with and able to endure the extra work/stress/expenses of a non-traditional wedding venue). I don’t think these pictures do justice to the amount of work it took to pull this one off–shuttles in traffic, no cell service, woodchips in everything, legs…

Alex & Jenn at Stones and Flowers

One thing we love is a good photographer!  Loved working with Ginny Silver at Retrospect Images this past weekend.  Not only did she manage the day and wedding party so well–but she sent me these beautiful images on Sunday!!  So instead of blogging about this wedding next year, here you go! We went with a rustic/chic/literary theme because Jenn loves books!  Table names were places that the couple loved with little descriptions in a dictionary…

Jessica and Steve: Carmel Valley Ranch

Steve and Jessica got married at Carmel Valley ranch. I loved my phone calls with Jessica to plan all the decor and flowers. We seriously had so much fun coming up with a romantic, soft, beautiful theme with a hint of sparkle!! Check out some of our favorite pics from Sarah Kathleen. My new favorite thing to do is to give flower girls a bunch of single stem flowers and let them hand the flowers…

Christmas is here with Save-On-Crafts!

I’ve actually had daydreams about partnering with Save-on-Crafts to do some inspiration shoots for a few years now.  Their inventory in amazing and I use their stuff for almost every wedding.  So when the opportunity arose to do a little inspiration shoot for Christmas, you can only imagine how excited I was.   It also gave me a great excuse to clean up my mantel and living room and get my house in the Christmas spirit.…
