Alexa’s bouquet featured “polo” roses, succulents, delphinium, lisianthus, dendrobium orchids, and seeded eucalyptus for a natural, loose feel.
The bridesmaids bouquets had accents of soft pink lisianthus in addition to the “polo” roses, dahlias, delphinium, and seeded eucalyptus.
For Alexa and Evan’s wedding, the theme was natural and rustic, yet refined. After all, it was an evening wedding at a private beach club. The ceremony was held outdoors, and the chuppah was decorated with burlap draping accented with bouquets of white roses, dahlias, and lisianthus, and succulents and seeded eucalyptus. Under the chuppah were two pedestals each holding a tall, natural arrangement with curly willow branches, antique green hydrangea, queen anne’s lace, and tall stems of white delphinium. We lined the aisle with white rose petals as well as lanterns with pillar candles.
The guestbook table held a small arrangement of dahlias, roses, hydrangea, and delphinium. The table and birdcage were also decorated with jasmine vines and some loose rose and dahlia blossoms.
I really like what Una did with the escort card table! The middle and edges were decorated with a blanket of delphinium flower blossoms with accents of larger blooms including succulents, roses, and dahlias. Very cool!
We had a lot of fun making the centerpieces. 6″ glass cylinders were wrapped with a burlap ribbon and filled with a variety of flowers for a natural, rustic look. The flowers included: antique green hydrangea, “cafe au lait” dahlia, white delphinium, “polo” roses, queen anne’s lace, seeded eucalyptus, festival bush, Italian pittosporum, and jasmine vine. Interestingly, all but the hydrangea and roses were local California grown flowers!
Niki and Evan were married in April on the sands of Santa Monica at the Loews Santa Monica Beach Hotel. Their colors were ivory with an accent of peach, orange, and green. Town and Country set up a walkway and platform right on the beach where we set up the chuppah and Niki’s family made the Sofreh spread of nuts, fruits, sweets, and pastries.

Niki carried an all white bouquet of roses, peonies, lily of the valley, freesia, dendrobium orchids, ranunculus, and dusty miller leaves.
We decorated the chuppah with sheer, billowing white fabric to create a relaxed yet formal beach vibe.
On the aisle chairs were mason jars filled with roses, tulips, ranunculus, peonies, dusty miller leaves, and viburnum.
The reception was held in the Venice Ballroom at the Loews Hotel. We created elegant centerpieces in clear glass cubes filled with “polo” roses, peach parrot tulips, peach ranunculus, white ranunculus, viburnum, freesia, and dusty miller leaves,

Stephanie and Dave were recently married on the beach front venue, The Malibu West Beach Club, on a sunny Saturday in May. They worked with Theresa Shlimanoff, of Hustle and Bustle Events. It was so good seeing Theresa again and I look forward to working with her again in the future!
Stephanie and Dave’s colors were pink, ivory, navy, and silver. With flowers, it was easy to bring in the pink and ivory using roses, peonies, ranunculus, hydrangea, and cymbidium orchids. For silver, we used touches of dusty miller (so beautiful!) and wrapped the centerpiece glass containers with a band of silver ribbon. The tables were covered with a lovely navy linen.
Stephanie’s bouquet was all white and ivory with “Polo” roses, cymbidium orchids, and lovely ivory peonies. Her bridesmaids carried bouquets of all pink flowers – peonies and roses
Boutonnieres for Dave and his groomsmen were a single “polo” rose with Dave’s subtly extra special with a couple of leaves of the silver leaf, dusty miller.
I love the arch we used for the ceremony. Stephanie wanted something simple and natural, made out of branches. Here we used three thin birch logs and secured them in white pots. Some simple, gauzy, organza draping blew gracefully in the breeze. And we finished off the look by attaching flowers to the top and sides: pink roses, white hydrangea, and dusty miller leaves.
were married at the dramatic, seaside Bacara Resort in Santa Barbara. Here are some professional and
pictures from their wedding. I love it whenever I hear from my brides a couple of months after their wedding and see their pictures. So fun and so great to know how they are loving married life!
