I couldn’t be more excited to share the first in this two part post on Justin and Chloe’s Wedding at Saddlerock Ranch, recently featured on Weddingbells! This was one of my favorite weddings for so many reasons, one being the opportunity to work again with David Pressman. I love the creative process with him, he is always pushing me just a little bit further to create the unforgettable. He also always seems to have the coolest most artistic couples that inspire me to my core. Chloe was the sweetest bride to work with. She was nothing but love and smiles and the time. Best energy ever. :)
The florals were a mix of coral amaryllis, garden roses, blush astilbe, peony, frittella, ranunculus, poppies, garden roses, dahlias…the best of the best!! I really just picked what was the most beautiful for the time of year. Chloe, and event designer, David Pressman, gave me lots of creative room!
For the chuppah I used a seasonal flower called boronia along with garden roses and peony.
Stay tuned for Part 2 with all of the gorgeous details from Chloe and Justin’s al fresco reception.

Andrea carried a wild bouquet of sterling roses, lambs ear, black calla lilies and orchids. After learning the bridesmaids dresses were going to all be different shades , I really wanted to see her go with all grey bouquets for her girls….I love the idea of the grey bouquet.
The birch chuppah is one of my favorite items in our inventory. I designed it a few years ago with my father-in-law at the helm, making all my birch bark chuppah dreams come true! I wanted the bark, not the heavy birch poles…..For Andrea and Jeff’s wedding we used it as an arch as opposed to a full chuppah structure and accented with the Juliet Crystal Chandelier.
For their sweetheart table we designed an array of greenery, vines, black baby calla lilies and more of the brides favorite, antique lavender roses, inside of a terrarium table, my most favorite of sweetheart table looks. It just screams for flowers! I also am a big fan of stuffing flowers into anything organic!
We used mossy birch bark with dusty miller, lavender, white lilies and sterling roses along with string of hearts leaves for a romantic, overgrown garden feel. The birch sleeves design is definitely a first love of mine.
