Megan & Grady: San Francisco City Hall

Megan & Grady are dear friends who met with me early on in their planning. We sat and brainstormed all the budget friendly ways we could do what they wanted (while still making everyone happy…sound familiar? It’s called wedding planning!). The idea was to do a small ceremony in the morning and then a big party that everyone could be invited to in the evening. Did they pull it off? You better believe it!! If…

Amanda & Pete: Floral Design Santa Cruz MAH

It’s hard to choose favorites, but this one was definitely fun!  Lots of green, pops of white and a beautiful hanging installation over the bride and groom!?!?!  At a non-traditional venue with lots of dancing till late in the night?  YES PLEASE! This was a beast—but SO MUCH fun to build.  I built most of it off-site and then suspended it (with the help and supervision of my contractor friend, because, let’s face it, I…

Eunice & Andrew: San Francisco University Club

Working with Andrew and Eunice was so much fun.  Both of them are professionals and understand project management and checking off tasks—so it was so fun for us all to work together in such an efficient way.  When you get this deep smile and laugh out of Eunice, it lights up the room!To say that Farmgirl Flowers totally…

Love Love Loved getting to dream up the design of this beautiful and classy wedding with Jaime and her mom.  It was…

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…
