Nick and Niki Married!

I just adore Nick and Niki and was so happy to create the florals for their wedding day.  They both have such unique styles and wanted their wedding to reflect their personalities.   The wedding was all about vintage touches and DIY accents.  Ivory and whites dominated the floral palette with accents of orange, yellows, sea foam blue, and silver.  They started with their I Do’s in Little Italy and finished up with their reception at the Prado Balboa Park.  It was a perfect day to get married!

Kudo’s from the bride and groom:

Dear Kimberly,

All we can say is WOW!  You are AMAZING!  We were soo impressed the day of the wedding how everything turned out with the flowers.  Everything was so cute and personable!

Really Kimberly, you had to deal with our absolute destination wedding craziness, so we really appreciate the hard work you put in.  We apologize if we didn’t make this evident sooner!  

I’m almost kind of depressed it’s all over, it’s not even funny how fast it goes by!  
At any rate, I will speak greatly of your services where I can. Thanks for being so patient and flexible with us.  So professional and talented.
Hope you are enjoying your Sunday with the family!
Say hi to Marley for us…he’s so cute!
THANK YOU so so much.
Much love!
Niki and Nick

Easter design ideas

Easter is one of my favorite holidays.  I love spring and everything that goes along with it.  Sunshine, warmer weather, spring flowers are a wonderful way to jump start wedding season.   However I am dedicating this post to Easter design ideas, a bride can easily tweek one of theses examples to make it fit her wedding.

Wheat grass is so fun to add to arrangements.  Place it in a cute festive container to hold colored eggs and add all those yummy treats or flowers to doll it up.

This is Martha Stuarts take on Easter.    She makes everything seem easy.  I love how her style is clean and simple.  The white background makes the colors pop.

Spring Flowers are so beautiful.  Lilac, lilly of the valley, sweet peas, tulips, daffodils, hyacinth, anemone, and iris are common flowers that you can pick up at your local flower shop.

Purple, orange, green, yellow, and pink are the perfect hues for Spring.

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.

Jill Grundstrom Wedding Bali Hai September 13, 2008


Submerged orchids

Green button mums and gerbera daisies

Jill Grundstrom wedding September 13, 2008 was a colorful San Diego affair with a Hawaiian feel. The ceremony took place at the downtown marina with the reception at the Balia Hai.  Flowers were of great importance to bride.  Color was Jill first request along with tropical flowers to make her fiance’s family feel at home.  Since the guest list was large requiring many tables at the reception, we decided to design 3 different centerpieces.  As the guests mingled, they viewed what I like to call, conversational centerpieces.

Reis Wedding at La Jolla Cove Suites

Reis Wedding at La Jolla Cove Suites was located on the rooftop of this beautiful hotel.  The views are amazing.  I enjoyed the simplicity of the flower choices.  Mini white cala lillies and tupils are always a bride’s favorite choice.
