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!

Sophisticated Intimacy at Wente Vineyards

Wente Vineyards is one of the best wedding venues, from the caves, to the lawn, or inside the winery, there are endless opportunities for wedding design! For our brides bouquet, we arranged a formal romantic pairing of sahara roses, gardenias, lisi, brovardia, and fressia. The grooms boutonniere was a single white tea rose with hints of ruscus. At the beginning of the aisle inside the cave, we placed two large barrel arrangements of blush and cream florals with hints of greenery. For the pews, we placed floating candles inside of cylinder vases. Candle light is the key to romance! We placed bud vases with off white roses at each of the cocktail tables. At the reception, we arranged low lush centerpieces that sat in an elegant gold footed dish. These were arranged using the same bridal blooms as the other arrangements.

Black Tie Elegance at The University Club of San Francisco

The University o Club of San Francisco is an elegant historic clubhouse atop Nob Hill, a location known for holding the city's culture and classy events. Our bride’s wedding was a traditional formal black tie affair that embodied elegance. For the bride’s bouquet, we arranged roses, gardenias, and hydrangeas, with hints white phelo orchids cascading down. The groom’s boutonniere was a unique white phelo orchid paired with ruscus. For the flower girl, we arranged a small nosegay of white roses as well as an adorable princess crown. At the ceremony, you are greeted by large white floral arrangements at the head of the altar. Down the sides of the aisle, we laid soft white rose petals. For the pews, we placed trio’s of cylinder vases with floating candles which really set the romantic mood for the ceremony. Half of the centerpieces at the reception were rounded textured arrangements that sat in hourglass vase, arranged using hydrangea, roses, tea roses and no greenery. The other centerpieces were full and formal low lush arrangements in gold footed dishes that were made to match the taller arrangements, however we added in ranunculas to give it a slight contrast. At the sweetheart table, we placed a long and low arrangement with orchids spilling over the front of the table. Lastly, we topped the cake with fresh bridal blooms.
