Lauren and George At Casa Del Mar

We recently created flowers for this great couple at the beautiful Casa Del Mar Hotel. Planning this wedding with the bride and her mother was a pure pleasure.


Lauren requested a hot pink Duchess Rose. We used 3 dozen fragrant Yves Piaget, French Garden Roses. The petals are detached from the stems and individually reassembled with glue to construct a single fantastic rose.


As you can see, the Duchess rose bouquet makes a strong statement.


The bridesmaids carried Vendela roses with a Dusty Miller collar.


The groom ‘s boutonniere was Stephanotis backed with Dusty Miller.


The ring bearer carried a moss pillow trimmed in Dusty Miller and tied with silk cording.



There were customs observed from the Greek Orthodox  and Jewish traditions in this inter-faith marriage.   We created Greek Stefana floral halos for the bride and groom, presented by the mother of the groom.


The beautiful floral Chuppah was created with Phalaenopsis orchid sprays , Dendrobium orchid sprays, Hydrangea, lime green hanging Amaranthus, cream Roses.  After the ceremony, the cake was moved under the canopy to continue enjoying this fantastic floral setting.



This wedding was filled with wonderful details. Lace handkerchiefs for the ladies.


Don’t forget the gentlemen.


Our floating escort card table was a conversation piece.  Soaring mercury glass flute vases were filled with shafts of fresh lavender, roses and hydrangea all floating over lavender open roses.


While guests were enjoying the cocktail hour, we were busy re-setting the room for the reception.


We created a combination of long and round tables spaced around the glossy white dance floor


Each setting had a personalized menu place card folded in the napkin with an open lavender rose.

We so enjoyed meeting the families creating a special environment for this great day.
