Nora & Dan: A Spring Flower Dream

A beautiful spring bouquet by Winston & Main featuring Claire De Lune Peonies, Poppies, and whimsical accent blooms in shades of lavender, orange, & yellow.
We loved flowering Nora & Dan’s intimate Spring wedding which was beautifully captured by Linda Abbot Photography.

This was actually one of our first weddings post-vaccine magic, and it was such a JOY to gather and celebrate again. (And to see people’s smiles without masks!) It truly felt sacred to create these beautiful pieces for Nora and Dan, and to witness their joy and the joy of their community surrounding them!

Also, this bouquet photo! Who is ready for breakfast? 🍳🍳💐

Romantic Tropical Wedding at Valentine DTLA

A sweet Los Angeles couple celebrate at their romantic wedding holding a tropical cascade bouquet full of dahlias, garden roses, protea, and blushing bride protea.

Bellamy & Nick’s wedding was our first ever at Valentine– one of the fabulous Marvimon venues, and while we’ve done many here since, this one was too good to keep to ourselves!

Despite the fact that it fell into the pandemic time vortex and actually happened many years ago. Oops!

Magnolia ceremony garlands decorate the aisle at Valentine, the perfect sun lit greenhouse wedding venue, in Downtown Los Angeles.
They kept the ceremony design simple and leaned into the lush tropical greenery that fills every single Marvimon venue and THRIVES. If only my houseplants could look this good!

We did add some fun magnolia garlands AND a few really amazing aisle markers in vintage copper vessels to the tropical ceremony design.

The stylish couple recess up the aisle after their ceremony- she carries a modern tropical cascade bouquet and he wears a tartan suit with a bold red boutonniere.
That just married moment is always, always a favorite photo, and Victoria Gold captured it perfectly.

The Bride and bridesmaids pose for a wedding portrait with their tropical bouquets held in front of their faces- the bridesmaids wear dresses in shades of green and they all stand against a teal wall.
This bouquetinfrontoftheface is usually my signature move, so of course I approve. I loved the couple’s choice to keep the wedding party bouquets entirely white and green tropical, and save ALL the shades of sunset, scarlet red, and drama for the bridal bouquet.

Our couple share a sweet a twirling first dance moment at Valentine in DTLA.
We’re always here for the twirling- especially since our couples are just so damn stylish. That dress. His suit. The perfect, bold boutonniere.

The wedding party hold modern tropical bouquets with white florals. In the other photos- the ceremony space at Valentine in DTLA is decorated with magnolia garland and large aisle pieces featuring monstera, dahlia, and anthurium in vintage copper vases.
Tropical wedding party bouquets, magnolia garlands, and large tropical aisle arrangements added color, texture, and style to the tropical space.

Bellamy’s large tropical cascade remains a favorite- it featured a large protea, local dahlias, garden roses, and tropical greenery.

Our groom's boutonniere features a red ranunculus, thistle, and orange wax to match his tartan suit.
Nick’s boutonniere featured a bold red ranunculus, orange wax, a blue thistle, and a little copper wire to tie in the copper details throughout the event.

And those wedding party bouquets aren’t bad either.

Tropical wedding reception centerpieces in vintage copper vessels of various shapes and sizes makes for a unique, textural, and bold reception design in shades of pink, coral, orange, red and white.
The reception details were so good- bold reds, tropicals, and lush local blooms all came together to perfectly compliment the amazing reception space at Valentine. The vintage copper vessels were provided by the groom’s mom, and every single one was unique. We LOVE a good vessel and truly think it elevates the entire centerpiece, so we were thrilled to design in this beautiful collection.

And this cake. I still love it so much after all these years. The fresh cake flowers, the fluff, the sugar, and the gorgeous green wall! Delicious!

This welcome arrangement and THAT vase perfectly set the tone for Bellamy & Nick’s unique, tropical, and romantic wedding.

We always love to see the creative floral flat lays, and loved how Victoria styled these fiery boutonnieres on a giant monstera leaf.

A tropical arrangement features King Protea, bold and colorful floral details in shades of red and orange, and a decadent cake with fresh florals.
The king protea, local garden roses, and ranunculus definitely stole the show, but really I just love how bold, warm, and unique this tropical design turned out.

Tracy & Zak’s Bold Wedding at the Ebell of Los Angeles

A wedding portrait of the couple at the historic Ebell of Los Angeles, featuring a modern cascade bouquet full of bold phalaenopsis orchids.

Tracy & Zak’s wedding at The Ebell of Los Angeles was bold, moody, bright and dripping with style (and flowers)! Aren’t they perfection?

The couple shares their first kiss under a bold and lush wedding arch full of peonies & garden roses, created by Los Angeles florist Winston & Main.

A moment of silence for this ceremony design please. Our signature floral palette- full of jewel tones, moody hues and pops of peony (that’s a color right?) was a perfect fit with their retro-modern style.

This is a classic wedding arch, reimagined to bring the drama, color, and luxury- exploding with pink peonies, red garden roses, phalaenopsis orchid, dripping amaranthus and more. More is always more, and we LOVE a large scale floral installation here at Winston and Main.

Jason Q Tran captured this perfect bridal bouquet portrait, and when it landed in my inbox, my jaw dropped. There *might* have been tears.

It is truly one of my favorite photos of any of my floral designs. Ever. It definitely puts the “fine art” in fine art florals and makes my heart so happy- the perfect Dutch Master’s painting!

Two photos, the first is a portrait of a bride holding a luxurious cascade bouquet in bold jewel toned flowers. The second is of the couple posing together, highlighting the groom's vibrant boutonniere.

These bold and moody jewel tones are a VIBE, and the more we create with them, the more they get requested.

Create the work that makes your heart happy friends- I guarantee there are others out there who will resonate with what you do, and then you’ll get to do more (and better) of what you love.

I am always so grateful for our wonderful clients and all the beauty their trust, vision and collaboration makes possible.

This large-scale floral installation on the stairs at The Ebell was such a showstopper, and made for some amazing and bold aisle flowers. Talk about a grand entrance- this installation was the first thing guests saw when they entered the wedding ceremony space, and also made for a dramatic walk down the aisle.

I always recommend a few larger WOW floral moments, over lots of tiny flowers everywhere. Make a statement, and include a staircase installation whenever possible- so many options, and SO many beautiful flowers. And then on the welcome table? Even more bold, lush, and dramatic jewel toned blooms.

Tracy’s colorful modern cascade bouquet is one of the most unique I’ve ever designed, and I LOVE how it turned out and how perfect it was for her. Vintage Hollywood glamour!

Two images of the couple's wedding ceremony, the first showing the groom waiting for his bride at the alter with a bright floral wedding arch behind him. The second is during the ceremony of the couple standing in front of the large floral arch and under beautiful and ornate chandeliers.

The Ebell of Los Angeles is full of unique historic details and dark wood, which makes it the perfect backdrop for bright, bold, and dramatic floral designs.

It’s always so fun to get photos back and check out all the different wedding day perspectives- Zak waiting for Tracy to walk down the aisle with a wall of gorgeous blooms behind him? Amazing. And that bolo? Best groom style ever!

I also love how this  ceremony shot through the historic chandeliers lets you see the scale of our ceremony arch, and shows off how we mirrored the beautiful arched windows behind it.

The couple smiling at each other as they walk back down the aisle after their wedding ceremony surrounded by large, colorful aisle arrangements.

This is always one of my favorite photos- that just married JOY is the best! And JOY surrounded by beautiful wedding flowers- even better.

The ceremony flowers repurposed to the sweetheart table is ALWAYS the move. Dinner + reception photos surrounded by the entire dark & dramatic garden FTW.

And check  out these elevated foam-free centerpieces- they’re dripping with jewel-toned orchids, dahlias, roses, delphinium, amaranthus, and smilax and elevated on a gold Harlow stand.

I promise you can ditch the foam and deliver more sustainable luxury- your clients, the earth, and your flowers will thank you!

Serving up cake, joy and sweetness.

A snapshot of this couple dancing in their retro-modern style wedding at the Ebell in los Angeles. As well as an image of the couple doing the horah at their wedding reception.

How much do you love that solo first dance shot?
The hanging floral installations on the chandeliers, dripping with smilax and orchids, the lush jewel-toned centerpieces, the photo booth sparkles, the stylish couple- pure magic. Seeing everything come together so beautifully on an event day is truly like magic and we are so thrilled to be a part of it every time!

And that Hora + Tracy’s wardrobe change? EPIC.
