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.

Destination Wedding: Santa Barbara, Ca

Make your wedding unforgettable. The Santa Barbara Zoo offers a spectacular location for a wedding. Guests will enjoy nearly 30 acres of lush gardens, majestic ocean views, and a diverse collection of animals. Perfect for a late spring or summer outdoor wedding.

Bethany Marrie and Andy Wood are the sweetest newlyweds. They both have that dreamy love connection that makes us all want to be in love. Since this brides has a special romantic style, Pink and Black are her wedding colors.  It than comes to no surprise that she was drawn to the cultivated gardens of the Santa Barbara Zoo as the place for her Special Day.   Bethany choose a  monochromatic look using all shades of pink that goes well with this traditional and elegant bride.  With out doubt her wedding was stunning.

Pink hydrangea, roses, and gerbera dasiys were used in the ceremony topiary trees and centerpieces.  While the Bride held garden pink roses and hydrangeas.  Bridesmaids bouquets of hydrangea popped with lime green cymbidium orchids.  And just a little accent of sea shells  to create a nice beachy feel to the wedding.

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.
