Rustic Romance at Murrieta's Well

Murrieta’s Well in Livermore, California is a beautiful rustic venue, which is a theme so many brides are wanting these days. First, we topped the wood welcome sign with a fresh garland with tucked in roses. For our bride’s bouquet, we arranged a textured style bouquet using whites, off whites and blush pinks with garden roses, Mother of Pearl roses, stock, and eucalyptus leaves. The bridesmaids bouquets were smaller, simpler versions of the bride’s. At the altar, we had two floral arrangements that sat in a glass cylinder. The centerpieces at the reception were small wood box arrangements using lots of greenery and large hydrangeas. At the sweetheart table, we placed two bouquets in between a taller structured arrangement. Lastly, we topped the cake with fresh bridal blooms.

Rustic Enchantment at Wente Vineyards

A romantic lavender affair at Wente Vineyards in Livermore, California. This beautiful couple chose to hold their wedding at Wente’s terrace lawn, which provides an open outdoor canvas, perfect to custom design your dream wedding! Our bride envisioned a tender and romantic wedding, with hints of rustic elegance. To start, we topped the rustic welcome sign with a 3 food garland with white and lavender blooms tucked in. For the bridal bouquet, we arranged a textured pairing of blush garden roses, true lavender and off white roses, with hints of English lavender. The bridesmaid bouquets were smaller version of bride’s, but with no lavender roses and added in lavender sprigs. The groom’s boutonierre was made using off white tea rose, succulent, and lavender sprig. The aisle of the ceremony was doused in delicate white rose petals. For the altar, we placed a 16 foot eucalyptus garland with white and lavender roses tucked in. We repurposed some of the centerpieces for the reception as barrel arrangements to brighten up the ceremony. These centerpieces were arranged in a rustic wood box, using creme roses and hydrangeas, adding in lavendar sprigs with lots of greenery. The sweetheart table was decorated using the same garland used for the altar, as well as some added in candles for a touch of romance. Lastly, we topped the wedding cake with dainty roses and succulents.

Rockin the blues Wente

On Saturday The Flower House took part in a beautiful wedding at Wente Vineyards. P1000610

The hills and the Wente golf course were the back drop to the wedding ceremony.  Two wine barrels framed the site with the arch as the focal point.  The altar spray brought together whites, blues and bright greens.  The two barrel arrangements flank either side of the aisle and add a bright pop of color.  The super green roses and blue bella donna are what stand out the most.  Green orchids are added to the middle of the altar spray for even more of that bright green.  Myrtle and green berries give height to the arrangements and yellow spray roses bring a new color as well.  The blue, yellow, and green colors match the background beatuifully and the classic white chairs make it a beautiful traditional site.

The reception was held in the Wente wine caves.  With the dramatic lighting and royal blue krinkle linens from Napa Valley Linens, the arrangements match perfectly.  The table arrangements are a smaller version of the barrel arrangements with yellow spray roses, super green roses, snow balls and blue bella donna as the stand out flowers.  White and yellow petals frame the arrangements and set apart the head table.  The rest of the table is kept simple with white plates and napkins.  This allows the arrangements to be the center of attention.  The lighting from the chandeliers adds even more drama with the decorative lights on the sides provided by Amos Productions.

The bride's bouquet is also gorgeous.  Love the bright green orchids in contrast to the white roses.  Super green roses and green berries also make an appearance.  White stephanotis with a beautiful rhinestone in the middle brings the whole bouquet together.  The style is controlled and tight wothout being overdone.  The berries give texture and the traditional aspect of roses is also brought in.  The orchids are allowed to steal the show with their bright green color. Overall, a gorgeous bouquet!
