Calistoga Ranch Wedding Fall 2012

 I love weddings, the opportunity to work at many different venues.  Calistoga Ranch, in Calistoga California, part of the amazing Napa Wine country, is truly a magical place.  Each guest stays in their own "cabin" and there is such a sense of calm and serenity, it is truly a one of a kind experience to be there.
 Lindsay called me from Canada, her family had stumbled upon Calistoga Ranch a few years back and she wanted to come back here to be married.  We had some great conversations and planned the whole wedding decor over the phone and through emails.  Lindsay used Gabe of Perspective Eye Photography as her wedding photographer, he did an amazing job capturing their day.  I LOVE this shot with the hair spray, he made a hair product look so beautiful!

 Lindsay and Guillaume have their first look, what a fairy tale spot.
 Simple clusters of baby's breath line the aisle

 Such a sweet look of love, what a marriage ceremony is all about

 Lindsay's bridal bouquet was made up of antique roses, herbs, and lavender.  Lot's of texture.  Her brides bouquet really went with the surroundings.

 Candle light greeted the wedding guests at the entrance
 The wine cave, we used a garland of olive branches to trim the chandeliers, it's all in the details, the garland made the wedding reception festive.
 Each sconce was graced with a cluster of roses and olive branches. We created several different styles of centerpieces to go down the center of the two kings tables.  Some had grapes and kale, along with ranuculus, roses, and lavender, we had little vases with olive branches and their olives.  We included succulents and lots of candles to add to the romance of this wedding reception.

Flower Girl Wagon

 Do you have a flower girl that is very young?  Maybe not yet walking or little enough to be very unpredictable?  A wagon is a great way to get that little girl down the aisle.
Here is a flower girl wagon we decorated not to long ago.

Jocie's Wedding

  Jocie's wedding was dear to my heart. I met her when she was 8 months old.  She grew up with my older girls. So I was thrilled to be able to do her wedding flowers.

We hung mason jars down the aisle

Jocie's little nieces

So sweet to see Matt walk Jocie down the aisle

For years we went to Jocies house for picnics and dinners, we had lots of balloon tosses, races, tug of wars etc... right here  on  this lawn where Jocie got married.

Blake is a fire fighter so his station suprised them with a few sirens

In honor of Independence day, I thought it would be fun to post this styled shoot sent over by Carmen Salazar Photography.
 The shoot was designed by Stephanie of Honey Paperie and Rebbecca of Sweet Cakes by Rebbecca.  They asked me to send along some flowers.
 I love how the whole thing turned out.
For this bridal bouquet, I combined a unique blend of flowers, lady slipper orchids, with red anemones, peonies, roses and herbs.  Stephanie created the fabric flowers for the stem wrap.
Perfect for a summer wedding.

A fun way to display flowers, drawers and dessert. You could use this as a guest sign in, or even to display engagement photos.

What wedding guest wouldn't love to sit at this fabulous table. Sweet wedding centerpiece, and a wedding favor at each place setting.  I love the chair poms Stephanie made.  And check out the darling little flags in the fruit bowl.

 Rebbecca made these amazing white chocolate dipped apples, yummy
One of my favorite creations, a leash for your favorite dog, made of flowers!

Wedding flower bouquet
How cute, fabric bows placed into a flower ball.  Darling idea for your wedding centerpiece.

Amazing dessert bar, Linens by Mimi & company fabulous dessert by Sweet Cakes by Rebbecca and pennant by Honey Paperie.

How cute are these kids? I love to see children in a wedding, nothing cuter than a flower girl and ring bearer. Mr Wyatt is one of our favorites and happens to be Stephanie's son.
