We are finally catching up from a whirlwind year, what a year 2013 was!
We are so thankful for our great clients who have been keeping us so busy.
We have wonderful events that we want to share with you. So, with any luck, we will be back posting entries more regularly.
We recently created florals for Marion and Andrew’s wedding at the landmark building,
The Riviera Country Club, built in 1922. It has a great Spanish Revival Hollywood feel about it.
It was a pleasure working with their families to create a beautiful wedding for their guests.
The bride carried Vendela and Virginia Roses with gardenias and stephanotis. This bouquet had such a beautiful fragrance.
It was great to do a tear-drop or as we like to say ” pear shaped, like diamond” bouquet. It’s refreshing to see this shape come into fashion again.
The bridesmaids were dressed in soft shades of pink caring rose nosegays tied with silk cording.
The four ring bearers were such fun to watch stealing the show.
The escort cards were penned in the most elegant and ornate golden calligraphy.
Heart warming silver framed photos of parents and grandparents were placed on the entry table.
This beautiful display really speaks to the feeling that you are marrying into a family.
It was so interesting to see all the different styles of wedding bouquets over the years. These are only a few from the table.
The fabric covered Chuppah was covered with garlands of rose nosegays and greenery with the family Talis pinned inside.
As guests left the ceremony, custom made sugar cookies with bride, groom and the couples monogram were displayed on the entry table as afvors.
Half of the centerpieces were tall vases of fully reflexed Vendela and Faith Roses, Lemonade hydrangea, Dendrobium orchids, caspia and dusty miller. The other half were lower versions of the same flowers.
At the base of the centerpieces, collections of mercury glass votives and small florals including roses, freesias, dusty miller and variegated ivy filled the table .
A fresh gardenia was placed on each napkin.
Vanilla Bake Shop made the simple, yet elegant cake using a gold French dot decoration and monogram.
Charlie King and her wonderful staff made the day run smoothly and were a pleasure to work with.
We wish this great couple a wonderful life together.
