Magical Romance at The Martinelli Event Center

Colorful weddings just fill us with joy! Although white and blush flowers are the standard for elegance, you can still make an unforgettable romantic affair while integrating some color into your design! This romantic wedding took place at Martinelli’s Event Center at Garre Winery located in Livermore, California. For the bride’s bouquet, we arranged a bohemian styled pairing of dark burgundy roses, garden roses, tea roses, scabiosa, dahlias, and small sunflowers, with lots of olive and eucalyptus greenery. The maid of honor’s bouquet was a smaller version of the bride’s bouquet, using the same florals. The flower girls had small princess crowns made with eucalyptus greenery and a touch of dark red scabiosa. The groom’s boutonniere was a burgundy red tea rose, with a small scabbiosa pod and a hint of ruscus. At the ceremony, we placed the reception centerpieces on barrels at the front of the altar to brighten up the ceremony. The reception centerpieces were low lush arrangements that sat in a clear glass cylinder vase. These were arranged using sunflowers, burgundy roses and dahlias, and lots of greenery. Lastly, we topped the cake with sunflowers and burgundy florals. A beautiful and cohesive wedding, we are so proud to have been a part of this magical affair!

Bohemian Beauty at The Purple Orchid

The Purple Orchid Resort & Spa in Livermore, California is an amazing venue because it has everything you need in one place - a picture-perfect setting with a bed and breakfast! Our bride’s bouquet was a boho style pairing of soft romantic latte roses, peach garden roses, pops of blue thistle, and burgundy dahlias. The bridesmaid bouquets were smaller, simpler versions of the bride's, using the same pairing of flowers. The groom’s boutonniere was a bronze mini cymbidium orchid with an accent of agonis. The centerpieces at the reception were textured arrangements that sat in a luxurious champagne cylinder. These were arranged using the same florals used in the bouquets. At the head table, we laid a 24 foot olive garland that ran down the entire table. We placed the bridal party bouquets into vases and repurposed them to decorate the head table. Lastly, we finished off the wedding by placing fresh bridal blooms onto the wedding cake.

Dreamy Elegance at The Palm Event Center

The Palm Event Center in Pleasanton, California is a gorgeous venue with endless amounts of of rustic decor. Our bride visualized a beautiful and classy wedding with a cohesive design. For her bouquet, we arranged pieces of hydrangea, garden roses, peonies, and ranunculas in a variety of whites, cremes, and soft blush pinks. The bridesmaids had the same bouquet as the bride, but a smaller version. The groom and groomsmen boutonnieres were made using a super blush tea rose and accents of ruscus and eucalyptus. At the first, middle, and last pew aisles, we placed a trio of cylinder vases with floating candles inside. Down the sides of the aisle were scattered white rose petals. At the beginning of the aisle and at the altar, we placed the large centerpieces from the reception on elegant hourglass vases. These arrangements were made using white and soft blush florals, not incorporating much greenery. The other centerpieces at the reception were low lush arrangements that matched the large ones, but with a bit more accents of greenery. Down the head table we repurposed all of the wedding party bouquets as decor. Lastly, we topped the wedding cake with fresh bridal florals.
