Alison & Chris

I knew Alison and I would hit it off the minute she said she wanted wild-looking bouquets of seasonal flowers- very possibly my favorite thing to make. It was late June, and we put together Coral charm peonies, Juliet and peach peony garden roses,  lavender, foxglove, scabiosa, and sweet pea vines... all wrapped up with burlap and cotton ribbon in wild, rustic fashion. Big congrats to Alison and Chris, who are not only married, but are now expecting a baby girl! I can't help but get excited when I hear news like that. Many thanks to E.A. Weymuller for the beautiful photos of Alison and Chris; the flower-only shots were taken by yours truly before these beauties left the studio.

Rachael and Kenji at The Center for Wooden Boats

A few photos from Rachael and Kenji's beautiful wedding in mid-August. Exceptionally trusting, kind, and down to earth, we discussed their vision and the feeling they wanted to create, and they completely trusted me with all the details of their flowers, down the the color palette! The only thing they said was that Rachael's family was sure to bring lei's, and there was nothing they could do about that. Well, that was no problem by me- I LOVE LEIS! And these ones were as pretty as they come. Their ceremony was small and intimate, and took place at a private residence in Hunt's Point. For their evening reception at The Center for Wooden Boats, they wanted to create a relaxed atmosphere for their guests. They laid out beach blankets for folks to sit on as they ate, drank and celebrated the newlyweds, and strung 1,000 paper cranes amidst lights over the dock. Rachael's gorgeous dress was made by Chrissy Wai Ching, and all of these images come from Jennifer and Brian of Photo Elan. More photos of their wedding can be found on the Photo Elan blog here.
Congratulations Rachael and Kenji!
