Elegant Woodland Wedding

Classic elegance meets woodland forest at the Mountain Terrace in Woodside California.  Perfectly planned by Rock N' Events, the outdoor ceremony impressed with an abundance of flowers, while the indoor reception sparkled with candle light. The rounded floral altar and low ivory pedestals with roses, orchids, and hydrangea and the aisle scattered with rose petals made a stunning contrast against the towering redwood grove backdrop. The bride's bouquet was perfect elegance with cascading white orchids, while the grooms boutonnière, a single white orchid was simple and tasteful. The reception dazzled with tall slender halo vases filled with white orchids and illuminated by soft candle light. The sweetheart table was perfectly decorated with a floral arrangement spilling down the front of the table.

Fall in Love!

Fall is here! In Pleasanton, California this couple created a romantic fall wedding using bohemian chic as their inspiration. Our beautiful bride carried a loose hand-tied bouquet that matched her bridal party. The bouquets were filled with mocha roses, peach garden roses, blue thistle, blue viburnum berries, bronze cymbidium orchids, burgundy dahlias, and red anemones. To give the bouquets some additional texture there were olive branches and eucalyptus spilling out the sides. The groom wore a bronze cymbidium orchid boutonniere, while his groomsmen wore orange spray roses and blue berry boutonnieres.

Guests entered through the large winery doors at lovely Casa Real at Ruby Hill and walked though a beautiful entry room. There was a table in the center with a guestbook and pen for guests to leave some love for the couple and was romantically decorated using a tall glass vase with tall upright flowers such as tall plum, blue thistle, roses, dahlias, and seasonal fall greens. Surrounding the arrangement sat candles filling the table.

As the bride started her walk down the aisle, her soon to be husband stood at the altar. He stood in front of a fireplace decorated with two pedestals resting on top of the pedestals were two footed-dish arrangements that matched the loose fall colors the couple selected. In front of the pedestals were six large floating candles in cylinder vases.

The newlywed couple then moved to the wedding reception where tables were set with champagne linens from Napa Valley Linens. Each table had a low centerpiece arranged in a mercury footed-dish. The arrangement includes matching flowers to the bride’s bouquet plus a few pheasant feathers to create an asymmetrical look. At the front of the room, the married couple sat at a sweetheart table decorated with bridal vases and more candles.

Summer Lovin' at Ruby Hill

This bride's bouquet is in the running for one of our favorites! The mix of white hydrangea, white roses, green berries and green cymbidium orchids is just so unique and couldn't be more perfect for a summer wedding. We kept the bride and her bridesmaids in sync but used green hydrangea, green broccoli, sangria stock, white lisi and green berries for the girls to give them a nice pop against their lavender dresses. The look was such a nice contrast of color against the lavender with the green and sangria for a really fresh summer look!  To keep the groom in sync with his bride we created his boutonniere using a lime green mini cam orchid which really popped against his dark grey tux.

For the altar arrangements we used our terra cotta urns to add another fun summer element and really filled it with a full rounded arrangement in greens, whites and an accent of sangria. We love how fresh and fun it turned out! The greens really give it a lot of life - which is once again, perfect for a summer wedding.

Our bride chose some eggplant linens for the reception to tie in the girls' lavender dresses and to still have that pop of color for summer. We arranged the centerpieces in a low lush using a glass cylinder with green hydrangea, stock, berries and buttons - this kept the look simple, sweet and fun!
