christy's la caille event

Christy's colors where light blue, navy, and orange. all her designs where kept simple with only a few types of textured flowers: hydrangea, roses, delphiniums, freesia, and dahlias. she wanted only hydrangea and roses in her bouquet (love the color of these gorgeous sunset rose and how they open!)as well as some lemon leafs, we wrapped in navy with a little twine center overlay.

this was a destination wedding and before sat i had not yet met christy, her fiance, or her parents. it was a true pleasure. they gave me some gorgeous natural rock earring's from coldwater creek as a thank you gift. again the feeling that makes being an artist worth it ... when its appreciated. it doesn't have to be appreciated by a gift necessarily but just communicated and that's one way. thank you christy and cheryl so much for the experience to be your floral artist and for your confidence and appreciation!

its not very often that i sort of just show it all sitting together ... so here it is, all her bridal party. bouquet, 4 bridesmaids, 2 flower girl clutches, petals, and 8 boutonnieres.

the two flower girl clutches (or jr bridesmaids whatever you prefer to call them) were so darling i couldn't resist getting a quick pic of them. didn't have much time for pics with set up and getting out of there, didn't take any at the studio either so enjoy la caille terracotta floor as background!

we did 12 centerpieces in lower yet wide vases full of garden style arrangements. 6 square and the other 6 cylinder. they turned out simply beautiful.

on the way out i could not resist a quick pic of what could be disneyland but is not its la caille out my window as we drove off. its beautiful dont get me wrong ... the manicuring of the gardens just reminds me of the precise manicuring at disney of vegetation. notice the carriage in the background made of flowers and the animal topiary also in the background. weeping trees are my absolute favorite ... they are so whimsical, makes me want to go run and be a pretend fairy for a moment. this ones are gianormous!

Finally i know

For some time now some personal family medical issues have interupted my availability for the 08 year and i have waited months and months to have a definate date as to when i would be unavailable ... well that day came today and i know finally! SEE ABOVE FOR DETAILS.

i am posting bridal sitting bouquets for two of the most genuine amazing brides i have ever had ... .lindsey and chelsea. these two girls have just been so patient and understanding, they are also the two last bookings i am taking before my time off for my daughter. Girls ... your weddings will be nothing short of stellar and i am so excited to be working with you! thank you for all your love and support and also to the moms for your inspiring words and trust in me!

this was lindsey's sitting bouquet from last week (pictured below courtesy of digital izatt.) perhaps one of my favs for the year! her colors are saffron and charcoal. this broach makes this bouquet and i just love love love it! lindsey picked it out herself but when i envisioned the creation this is exactly what i wanted for her! feathers are misted gold and so was the lily grass with a modern simple yet striking set of callas.

this is chelsea's sitting bouquet from today! her colors are light pink, hot pink, lime green, and black. this bouquet is one bright beauty with two toned hydrangea, a few different shades of mini callas, cymbidium orchids, and hot lady roses! woohooo!
