I love this wedding for so many reasons.  A super sweet and beautiful bride, gorgeous color combination and a great Venue!  The bride is as cheerful as decor she has chosen for her wedding.  Raspberry, fuchsia, apple green and teal.  These colors were used with an organic flair.  Weaving together Manzanita branches, grapewood and succulents to obtain the rustic aesthetic.  We were excited to design Monica and Alex’s wedding combining the spring blooms  at the peak of its season, Peonies, tulips, anemones…love them all!  But the loveliest of all was the bouquet Monica carried.  She incorporated a locket with her Mother’s picture from her wedding.  So precious!
The ceremony celebration began in the quaint lawn at La Valencia Hotel.  Ceremony decor is not complete without the lush petal path in our book!  The cocktail continued in the Mediterranean courtyard, where the Escort card table set the tone for the decor.  Branches of grapewood set on tall glass vessels dripping with orchids, tulips and peonies in bright cheerful colors.  The reception in the Verandah room featured large manzanita trees adorned with graceful phalaenopsis orchids and hanging succulents set in our wooden boxes.  Platinum Pro provided the custom dance floor which made a lovely statement.  Special Thank you to PaperWhites Photography for the gorgeous images. Thank you Monica for entrusting in Karen Tran Florals to design your wedding.  This wedding was coordinated by Emily Smiley.  Congratulations to the beautiful couple!
