Karin and Hart’s Wedding at Saddlerock Ranch Malibu

We love weddings at Saddlerock Ranch in Malibu.

We have created beautiful wedding flowers for all three daughters of this family.


All three sisters had distinctive ideas regarding their wedding decor.


Bridal Bouquet

Our bride carried a beautiful bouquet of  Vendela, Crème de la Crème and David Austin Patience Garden Roses with accents of Lemon Vision Spray Roses, lite blue hydrangea, dusty miller and Stephanotis.



Her beautiful bridesmaids carried bouquets of blue hydrangea, Vendela roses and Dusty Miller.



The adorable flower girls wore wreaths of seeded Eucalyptus and carried birch bark moss lined baskets.



For Karin and Hart’s ceremony, we decided to to site the ceremony facing the oak grove.



Herb filled French galvanized flower buckets and vintage iron garden lanterns were grouped down the aisle.

The wedding canopy was created using pale blue shades of Hydrangea, lime green hanging Amaranthus, Southern Magnolia, dusty miller, Crème de la Crème, Message and Vendela roses.



I love this family tradition, every couple has their name sewn into the bridal canopy.



A hand lettered sign and steamer trunk filled with jasmine and herbs led guests to the ceremony.



Framed wedding photos were displayed of the many generations of family members.



Three different styles of centerpieces were used, featuring green grapes and birch bark containers.



The long tables had our tall vintage candlesticks and striped table runners.



We surrounded the monogrammed cake with a magnolia garland.



We are so happy for this wonderful couple and glad they thought to take a evening photo under the canopy.

Brynn and Ryan’s Wedding at the Four Seasons at Beverly Hills


We recently created florals for Brynn and Ryan’s beautiful early springtime wedding at the Four Seasons Hotel at Beverly Hills.


The bride, looking down from the balcony, to where we were  finishing  her bridal canopy in the garden.


We designed this charming rose petal bar, where guests could fill a bag of petals to shower the bride and groom.



The petal bags were stamped with their names.



The bridal bouquet was a collection of  ‘Juliet’  David Austin Roses,white anemones with a black center, white ranunculus. Veronica and Hellebore tied with a white satin ribbon with a black pearl head accent.



The bridesmaids carried loose gardeny bouquets of white parrott tulips,  ‘Juliet’ David Austin Roses,white anemones with a black center, Veronica, hellebore and willow eucalyptus tied with a black satin ribbon with a white pearl head accent.



The couple were married under a canopy of off-white blooming almond branches.



After the ceremony, the bride and groom walked down the white hydrangea lined aisle under a shower of rose petals.



The black and white escort cards radiated out from the blossom branch, Vendela roses, hellebore,  spray rose , and hydrangea filled antiqued garden urn.




Table centerpieces were garden assortments of roses, ferns, nerine lily, freesias, ranunculus, antique hydrangea and wax flower arranged in a collection of mercury glass containers.




Footed Mercury glass vases and Ivory pillar candles in clear glass hurricanes surrounded the centerpieces.




I just love this photograph taken on the roof of the four seasons hotel.

If you click on it, you can see it larger. So beautiful, I think Heather Kincade Photography did an outstanding job.

Erika and Andrew at the Four Seasons WestLake



We recently created wedding flowers for this lovely couple.



The bride carried white Avalanche roses and Patience David Austin garden roses, Majolica spray roses with a collar of variegated tree ivy.



The bridesmaids carried Geraldine roses and White Majolica spray roses.



I love it when the reserved looking groomsmen reveal their wild side with these crazy socks. Very fun!



This is where the ring bearer and flower girl steal the show. They really seem to have this under control.



The outdoor garden photography is so beautiful. I love how Erika’s veil caught the wind.



How beautiful to be framed by an arbor of climbing roses.



The elegant white, cream and pale pink accent floral centerpieces were so beautiful in this ball room. Cascading Smilax garlands led the eye to the  three smaller floral arrangements with mercury glass chalices surrounding the center of the table.



Each Napkin was topped with a fragrant gardenia.



Floral garland decorated Mr. and Mrs. signs made for a romantic sweetheart table.

Susan and Joe’s Midsummer Night’s Dream Wedding

We were so thrilled and honored to be asked by Susan Bordelon, Wedding photographer extraordinaire, to do her own wedding flowers.

We have always loved working with Susan on weddings professionally.  She has a great personality, a keen eye and makes great photography seem so easy.  Her wedding was no exception.


We were interested to see what Susan’s vision would be for her own wedding, having photographed hundreds of weddings for her clients.


Susan knew exactly what she wanted to carry simple and fabulous. She  requested a bouquet of all Lily of the Valley. It has been years since I have done a bouquet like this. It really was special.  The fragrance of this flower is clean, sweet and delightful.  We made a magnolia leaf collar and tied the bouquet with silk cording.


The groom’s boutonniere was made of Blushing Bride Protea, Magnolia Foliage and peach Hypericum Berry wrapped in bleached hemp twine.



Her daughter, The maid of honor, carried pink peonies, pink spray roses and peach Hypericum Berries.



The magical ceremony took place under a beautiful large oak tree by a stream .  The simple garden arch was decorated with blooming honeysuckle, magnolia, tree of heaven and German statice.



After the ceremony, guests enjoyed a beautifully styled cocktail area using Susan’s personal collection of furniture.




After cocktails, guests were led up to the house where long wooden tables were decorated with collections of Susan’s blue vintage glass bottles.



The bottles were filled with coral peonies,David Austin Juliet  garden roses, Green Mist Queen’s Anne lace, Free Spirit roses, Dusty Miller, and variegated Hosta leaves.



The coffee-antiqued menu cards were folded into the napkins with a lavender and Stephanotis floral cluster tied with twine.



The cake was placed on top of the bride’s vintage suitcases, surrounded by hundreds of Stephanotis and Cafe au Lait Dahlias.

We had so much fun creating this environment for one of our favorite friends and wish Susan and Joe all the happiness in the world.

Melissa and Devin at the Montage Beverly Hills

We recently designed the decor for this Tuscan inspired wedding at the Montage Hotel in Beverly Hills.  We really enjoyed working with this wonderful couple and family.

The bride carried garden roses with a magnolia collar accented with cognac Swarovski crystal accents.

The groom’s double mini-calla lily boutonniere was tied with raffia.

The bridal party gathered on the lawn for formal photos. Melissa won the award for most bridesmaids this year.

The bridesmaids carried Duchess Roses made from Cherry Brandy Roses. This bouquet is constructed by assembling the petals of many roses into one composite large rose.

The ceremony took place on the second floor terrace overlooking the Beverly Hills City Hall Dome.  A pair of  Tuscan urns filled with flowers and fruit were placed on either side of a rustic garden arch leading the couple to a path of Cherry Brandy rose petals.

The ceremony started as the sun was setting.

A beautiful crystal chandelier was suspended above the bridal couple.

By the time the wedding vows were completed, a wonderful evening was unfolding.

Nectarines and gardenias spilled from Tuscan urns.

Escort cards were tied to antique keys attached to an rustic iron gate and later served as a back drop for the party favors.

The signs read He’s a Keyper and She’s a Keyper

Della Robbia fruit garlands swagging off the balcony created the perfect setting for this rich and vibrant Tuscan setting.

Tuscan painted  carved candlesticks supported the lush assortments of Butterscotch garden roses, antique hydrangea, chocolate artichokes, miniature purple calla lilies, burnt orange Mokara orchids and succulents.

The gorgeous long head table faced the bandstand with a friut and floral garland connecting the five tall centerpieces.  Raffia tied Purple miniature calla lilies and a sprig of rosemary were placed on the scalloped die-cut menus.

Purple Vanda orchids  and clusters of Champagne grapes accented this beautiful apricot colored stacked cake.

The floating glass entry table was later re-purposed as a candy and biscotti bar with  deep purple paper cones to bag your goodies.

We wish this wonderful couple the sentiments from their message to their guests,  ” La Dolce Vita”.

We would like to thank Yvette Roman for her wonderful photography.
