Briana and Wesley Seaside Forum La Jolla

Briana and Wesley are adorable!  Young love is so sweet and inspiring especially when celebrated at the ever so amazing Seaside Forum.  One of my favorite venues in San Diego.  This wedding was a combination of vintage anthropology that meets the sea.  Wedding flower colors were white and ivory with a hint of blush.  Floral design on guest tables incorporated open-cut rununculas,  Phalaenopsis orchids, hydrangea, tulips and David Austin garden roses clustered in heirloom blue mason jars placed on top white river rock mats and burlap runners.  Natural organic accents included grape wood branches, sala and wicker orbs.

Thank you to the following vendors for making their wedding day so special.

Purple and Green Wedding Flowers

Purple and Green Weddings Flowers
This season purple and green wedding flowers have been the top color pick for bride after bride.  I guess I’m not too surprised with everyone going green theses days. It makes sense that Brides are looking for a clean, organic look and feel to their weddings.
I suggest to stay with deeper shades of purple or lime green to keep it looking fresh, modern and new verse the lighter palettes that will make your wedding look like Easter.  I especially have a new found love for green flowers.  Green is a color that one may not think there would be many face flowers to choose from, but the list is quite long.
Wheat grass (one of my favorite this time of year), hypernicum, roses, tulips, cymbidium orchids, hydrangea, lotus pods, coxcomb, hanging amaranths, gladiolas, anthirium, cala lilies, and succulents  are some examples.

Here are some other purple and green wedding images for inspiration.

White Bridal Bouquet’s

If you’re having a white wedding, feast your eyes on our white bridal bouquet ideas and bridal bouquet pictures. White flowers come in different shades; paper white, cream and ivory and have distinct elegance and formality. Your choice in white will depend on the shade of your bridal gown and if you want it to match or contrast with your gown or bridal accessories.

A classic white bouquet works well in all seasons and can make a casual wedding graceful and refined. A lovely flower choice for a white wedding bouquet; calla lily, lily of the valley, roses, anemones, white dahlias, gardenia, stephanotis and freesia.

White signifies purity, innocence, humility and a new beginning, it also depicts faith and is associated with light and is considered the colour of perfection. White flowers are most often used in bridal bouquets.

The Kellogg Wedding

Wendy Kellogg and Dave Machala were married in an intimate ceremony under a curly willow arche of cascading red and burnt orange flowers on November 15, 2009 at the top of Mount Soledad.  They exchange their vows with a backdrop of the beautiful La Jolla sunset glowing on the mountain side.

Wendy, daughter of Bill and Tricia Kellogg, came to me wanting a wedding that is reminiscent of the fall with all its warm, bright and crisp colors.  Her bouquet was a traditional white and cream colored beauty incorporating hydrangea, ranunculas, roses, and gardinias. The bridemaids  bouquets were full of color with orange being the main hue.  Orange is fresh and vibrant! It seems so youthful and so full of energy which fit Wendy’s personality.  Her flower picks were mini cala lilies, pink brandy roses, pin cushions, and dalhias.

After the ceremony the guests arrive at one of La Jolla’s most memorable dining restaurants, The Marine Room.  I would say that this wedding was all about the views!!

Wendy and Dave congratulations!  I wish you the best!
