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.

Woodsy meets Elegance

The Brazilian Room in beautiful Tilden Park is both elegant and unique. The outdoor ceremony site is surrounded by a lush green meadow and wooded areas of redwoods and oaks. This couple kept the outdoors theme throughout the ceremony with white flowers cascading in and out of the aisle, abundant ferns, and rustic elegant lanterns. The bride's style was old Hollywood elegance and her lovely textured bouquet was abundant with roses, scabiosa, tea roses, orchids, and silver dollar eucalyptus. Her bridesmaids sparkled in navy and gold dresses and carried rich vibrant bouquets of magenta, deep plum and blush pink. The reception held inside the Brazilian Room was rich, bold, and enchanting. Deep magenta floral arrangements popped against the dark navy linens, gold candelabras and charges added brightness and shimmer, and details of butterflies and hummingbirds added enchanting touches.
