Real Weddings: Stephanie and Dave

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.
