Here's a preview of a sweet, sweet wedding we worked on in June. Blousy peonies and dahlias in creamy blush and ivory with local grasses and thistle made for the perfect combination of lush, wild and whimsical. In other words that natural rustic style that we love to do, that suites the Headlands oh so well!
I can never get over those few magical weeks each year when peony and dahlia season overlap...and garden roses to boot. We had fun working on this wedding, and oogled a bit over the combination of seasonal, local loveliness.
Huge thanks to Jamal Farley for capturing the gorgeous images below. More coming soon...
Living near Golden Gate Park is something I hold so dear, and this time of year it's especially magical. Pristine blossoms of tulip magnolia, cherry and crab apple trees abound- often stopping me in my tracks. The Shakespeare Garden takes the cake when the perfectly manicured rows of crabapple trees are in full bloom, and this is the week to visit! I took a few photos yesterday afternoon to share...
So luscious...before it starts to rain again, you should pop over for a treat.
I wanted to share a few more images from our October wedding at the Mill Valley Outdoor Art Club. There were just so many sweet details about this wedding, it couldn't be contained to one post.
This bride wanted to combine all types of living succulents (that could be taken home by guests and later re-potted) with lush, romantic flowers. Such a dreamy combination, and environmentally friendly solution!
Upon booking this job last May we got to work potting up several pots of echevaria in our own backyard. Over the course of months we propagated many new blooms, all of which made it to the wedding in October. The roots on the plants were kept intact when designing these lovely centerpieces to make the adjustment back into soil as easy on the plant as possible.
We recently heard from the bride and many of these succulents are happily living on after their cameo appearance at the wedding- some in her apartment in San Francisco, and others with guests who live all over California, from Camarillo to Sacramento to Sea Ranch.
Here's a fun idea for your favors. This site allows you to make custom bags at an affordable price. I've never ordered anything from them, so I can't speak to the quality of the products, but what a great idea, huh?!
