Moody Jewel Tone Wedding at The Houdini Estate

Our bride's jewel toned bridal bouquet by Los Angeles florist Winston and Main
Jaclyn & Andrew were the absolute dream clients- AND the flowers…
Holy hell!

I’m still in awe and I designed ’em!
Nature is magic.

The lush jewel toned floral copper arch designed by Los Angeles florist Winston and Main.
Let’s talk about this arch. All the flowers. All the colors. All the texture.
AND just a little edge, right?

Important planning tip: Always, always, go for the statement, rather than trying to spread the flowers (and dollars) everywhere.

Originally J&A had opted for a few smaller pieces (aisle markers, smaller pieces around the reception, that sort of thing) BUT this arch was important to Jaclyn, and at our design meeting, we rearranged the proposal a bit to make it a priority.

WORTH IT.

It was such a joy to create this beautiful bouquet for Jaclyn, full of peonies, roses, ranunculus, dahlias, and that gorgeous moody guava greenery.

Immediately.

Thank you Jenny Smith & Co. for these gorgeous photos, I’m so excited to see the rest!
But for now…

I also really love when my couples fill their wedding days with meaningful aspects of their culture + personality.

Carey’s family has a special connection to Hawaii, and so they chose to do a lei exchange on the beach following their ceremony. We even had the tuberose shipped in from Hawaii because that smell just cannot be imitated.
 
The cutest couple share an intimate moment on the beach for a private lei exchange featuring orchids, ti leaf, & tuberose following their wedding ceremony. The bride wears an ornate yet modern take on a Sri Lankan floral headpiece featuring ranunculus, spray roses, and eucalyptus.
 
Huge congratulations Sammy & Carey!
What an honor & a joy it was to fill your wedding day with beautiful blooms!

Oh! And did I mention they had a brass band for their cocktail hour + a second line?
Truly a couple after my own heart.
