This wedding was a June beauty and I have been anxiously waiting for all the images so I can show you a cohesive look at the day. Mindy Weiss and her team brought all the pieces of this Tuscan inspired event with grace and style.
Wish I had more shots of the personals to show you, because her bouquet was out of this world stunning...lots of big fat peonies. And the bridesmaids' carried smaller nosegays of peach garden roses.
The amazing tables set with La Tavola linens and our scrumptious flowers. She really wanted end-to-end luxurious arrangements spilling all over the table. I say...NO PROBLEM!!!!
Another fun touch...citrus draped chandeliers. There were 4 of these in the room. No small task to decorate but the results were even more beautiful than I had imagined.
And the cake table....oh la la. We provided all the pretty cake stands and pretty decor...plus we emailed a few images to the pastry chef for colors to match the cakes to. The results were so much better than plain white or ivory cakes..FUN!
Planned by none other than the fabulous Mindy Weiss
This event took place at the jaw droppingly beautiful Pelican Hill Resort in Newport Beach.
Town and Country provided the gorgeous tables

I have a little design help these days. Alice is very motivated and even more skilled than mommy with flower arranging. Here you can see her with her very 1st completely self made bouquet in a Moroccan tea glass. I loved the way she told me she needed me to cut the stems shorter when they were too long, and then instructed me to fill up the vase with water. She has been quietly paying attention. I love her and her sweet ways.
Here are some garden rose bouquets we did for Zoe's wedding in Malibu at a private estate. Images to come later from Docuvitae.

Hello All! We have been to Napa and back. Heard a lot of unusual radio on our travels ( Fats Domino, New skool and old skool Country, and some rockin' Napa station I will forever be on the hunt for!) and saw some dusty almond crops too. DRY farmland!
This wedding was a stunner to say the least..today I will share the studio shots of the centerpieces These are the larger focal arrangements, which were surrounded by smaller satellite groupings of flowers. Her Personals will come later and of course when Jose Villa has his images from the day we'll post those too.
Here's what you can find in these arrangements...
Heirloom Garden Roses
Coral Passion Vine
and fun fuzzy - and some not so fuzzy - succulents
What do you think? Like em? The only thing missing is the wine!
