Katie and Jeff

I am so happy to share some of the professional shots from Katie and Jeff's magical wedding in Big Sur last month! They are such a vibrant, creative, and fun-loving couple (can't you tell!?!) Designing these flowers was extra-special because Katie is one of my best friends from college, and I completely love her and her new hubby Jeff! Getting to apply my love of flowers to the wedding of such dear friends felt like a huge honor. All photos by Karin Apollonia Muller unless otherwise noted.

They got married at Rancho Rico, a gorgeous ranch at the top of a winding, dirt road, perched on bluffs overlooking the ocean. I have yet to see any place more beautiful than these bluffs. On the day of the wedding, the air was full of mist- you couldn't see the ocean, but the mist made the already dreamy place feel even more magical.

The flower palette was a romantic mix of garden rose, peonies, astilbe, maidenhair fern, camomile, honeysuckle, lisianthus, and succulents that Katie cut from her garden in LA. We went with a color palette of soft pinks, ivory, and apricot, with pops of yellow and bright pink, and all the bouquets were wrapped in vintage lace that Katie found on Etsy.

Audrey the flower girl was the sweetest little creature you could possibly dream up- she looked like a little forest nymph! I made her a flower crown of lavender, roses, scabiosa buds and succulents, and I love these photo of her sitting in front of the mirror, putting it on.

One of my favorite shots of the ceremony:

The chuppah was made from gathered branches by a few of Jeff's good friends, and decorated with a whimsical mix of hanging, green amaranth, craspedia, Italian ruscus foliage, peonies, sweet-smelling stock, scabiosa, and curly willow.

The groom and groomsmen lookin' groovy:

Katie looked absolutely stunning- is she not the most elegant, gorgeous bride you have ever seen!?!!!

Huge congratulations to Katie and Jeff!!! I love you both so much, and it was an absolute honor to do the flowers for your wedding.
