OOH - one of my favorite San Diego venues. This place is a serious dream especially if you like garden ceremonies and grand European buildings. From the bridal suite to the cocktail bar to the ballroom with the grand wooden hearth - it's seriously stunning and each detail is spectacular. Here I have my favorite photos for my fall wedding with Leif Brandt and Kelsey Rae Designs. If you're considering Vista Valley Country Club as your wedding venue - book it! And seriously give me a call because I'm obsessed with flowering this place up.
After being asked to participate in a bridal inspiration shoot styled by Blush and Adore and photographed by Acres of Hope Photography I knew the final product was going to be exactly what they are - STUNNING.

This is a shoot I keep coming back to. It's simple, classic, and elegant. The perfect inspiration for a spring wedding.

Such a lovely day working with some of my favorite vendors at this sweet outdoor wedding in La Jolla. The Darlington House is such an elegant and intimate venue. I love every chance I get to flower up their amazing grounds!
The photos by Fog and Dawn came back beautifully! Such sweet moments and details were captured and there are just so many great backdrops on the property at Darlington. Nicole George left no detail unturned and added so many personal touches to Katie and Jack's day!
The bridal bouquet was one of my favorites of 2016! The mix of peonies and garden rose from Ella Rose Farm is just classic and gorgeous!!
Last year, I was contacted by Arlyne Sanjines (now, Mrs. Bales) to provide the flowers for her outdoor wedding at Secluded Garden Estate. The meeting we had was awesome and we were definitely on the same page. I got to know her style really well since she happens to be a YouTube sensation and shares all her favorite style secrets and hints.
Arlyne walked down the aisle under the venue's greenhouse arbor. We decked the top of the arbor with draping lace and chiffon and hanging glass orbs. A massive floral installation at the vow site held a mix of willow branches, olive branches, king protea, blue delphinium, terra cotta roses, white stock, and lots of other textural details.
She wanted a really warm and eclectic mix of colors with rich marsala as the color anchor and a variety of blue hues and blush to accent. We brought in the beauty of the natural fauna of the venue and used lots of greenery in deep and sage tones. This brought so much texture to each area and it was a treat to the eye as you looked around the expansive grounds.
Garland of broad leaves and seeded eucalyptus decked the bar from Sundrop Vintage (who provided all the awesome furniture rentals) and the gorgeous seating chart hand lettered by Louise Letters.
Two different table styles for the guests. For half of the tables we used matching greenery garlands. For the other half we used a mix of metal and glass pedestals holding elongated floral arrangements of roses, dahlias, delphinium, gold orchids and banksia, and berries. Louise Letters provided custom hand dyed table numbers and these fun gold frames.

BLOOMS loves bold interesting color combos! When brides go bold with their wedding colors, we know we're going to love the outcome. Insert these awesome color schemes into epic scenery and you get some of our favorite weddings (not to mention the clients are pretty amazing too). Here's some of our favorite examples from our sweet clients:
Anne's wedding at Moniker Warehouse in downtown San Diego was full of burgundy and rich magenta. It was important to her husband to have a splash of purples to celebrate his alma mater. We balanced the deep toned garden roses, dark dahlias, and vibrant spray roses with soft peach roses, blushing bride protea, and lighter toned orchids. Fragrance was abundant with the lavender sprigs, gardenia greenery, and seeded eucalyptus.
When Anne contacted me she said she was getting married at Moniker Warehouse and loved the industrial feel. Her main concern, though, was making the large space feel warm and intimate. We accomplished that by incorporating garden style arrangements in two different formations. Half the tables had a single arrangement on an elevated mercury pedestal. The other half of the table had a trio gathering; three different delicate glass vases holding their own selection of flowers and greenery.
Jennie and Tim's wedding will be featured in the Spring/Summer issue of Exquisite Weddings Magazine. It was such a gorgeous ceremony in Old Town San Diego followed by a wild night at The Luce Loft in Downtown San Diego (all the amazing furniture rentals were provided by CC Vintage Rentals). Jennie started with a pretty soft color scheme of white, blush, and deep burgundy accents but as we approached the big day she decided to go all out. We used a balance of richness and softness with deep dahlias, blue tweedia, latte garden roses, blush and ivory spray roses, fuchsia parrot tulips, and so much more!! It seemed a little wild at first but as everything came together it got more and more stunning. The delicate textures kept the color combo from looking too heavy and the mid tones of ivory and latte brought together the full color spectrum.
Rachel was another bride that started with a classic and sweet color scheme and eventually went all out mixing soft yellows, blush, pink, and crimson! Who would have though it worked? But it did! Parrot tulips in neutral tones with soft blush sweet peas set the mid tones for crimson peonies, yellow yarrow, and fuchsia globe tulips. Aside from the texture and color combo - look at all the mint. Can you imagine the amazing fragrance? This New York wedding is also close to my heart because Rachel is one of my closest friends and favorite people on the planet.
