Chun called me from Hawaii to plan her Sonoma wedding. We never actually met face to face until the day of the wedding but between phone calls and emails I was able to capture the vision she had for her wedding day. Chun and Marc were married at the beautiful Viansa winery in Sonoma, http://www.viansa.com/
Elegant simplicity, an aisle of baby's breath.
The reception was and eclectic mix of containers. Each table was done with it's own style.
I think the white and pops of green sword fern brought such a freshness to Whitney's bridal bouquet. White peonies, antique roses, white dahlias make for a spectacular brides bouquet.
For our first flower girl, Blooms by Martha Andrews, created a basket out of flowers. We added pops of black to coordinate with the over all look of the black and white wedding.
For the second flower girl, Blooms by Martha Andrews created a flower girl wand. Flower girls love feeling like a princess with their wands made of flowers.
The bridesmaids carried simple bridesmaids bouquets of anemones and berries surrounded by sword fern. These black and white anemones are a favorite right now but have limited availability.
Bridal party flowers all in a row, so fresh and pretty.

The groom wore a boutonniere made up of a black and white anemone and berries. The stems were then wrapped in gold ribbon.
Nothing is more romantic than candlelight. For Whitney and Kyle's wedding ceremony we created a solid candlelit aisle.

How cool is is this image? Jessica, from Stout Photography, just won an award for this fabulous photo. It's one of my all time favorite photographs.
The head table.
A large cluster of votive candles sat at the base of each centerpiece. All these items are available to Blooms brides. Mercury glass in silver and gold, mint julep cups, and much more.
Classic elegance, a white centerpiece sitting on a silver candelabra.
We created 2 styles of centerpieces the second was a lower flora sitting on a mercury glass stand.

I love hanging things for weddings, I think it brings the room together, lowers the ceiling to fill up the room. For Whitney's wedding we hung crystals with votive candles. Again, more romantic candle lite for the dancing.
I have been a floral designer for 27 years. I was raised by a wedding planner and have spent my life around weddings and entertaining.
I am a mom to 7 wonderful children and have been married to the love of my life for 25 years.
