Jaclyn & Andrew were the absolute dream clients- AND the flowers…
I’m still in awe and I designed ’em!
Nature is magic.
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.
It was such a joy to create this beautiful bouquet for Jaclyn, full of peonies, roses, ranunculus, dahlias, and that gorgeous moody guava greenery.
Just put a (hundred) flowers in it. Right?
Absolute perfection. And that purple scabiosa?!
Andrew nailed the bright & moody jewel tones perfectly, right?
And those little bouts with their copper accents…
Congrats Jaclyn & Andrew! You two are the cutest!
And you’re not too shabby yourself Houdini Estate! (insert all the heart eyes)
And ALL the petals.
WHAT an entrance!
And her MOH doing double duty FTW.
THIS shot is always my fave!
That just-married bliss is magic.
And away they go!
Claire Pettibone FTW.
Show-off delphinium and all the jewel-toned details!
I loved the DIY cocktail stations. (make mine a Manhattan!)
CHEERS + huge hugs Jaclyn & Andrew!
It was an honor and an absolute pleasure to flower your wedding.

A year ago today I had the honor of designing Marta & Matt’s Art Deco meets Enchanted Forest wedding at Cicada Club in DTLA.
At our very first meeting we spoke extensively about the way Marta & Matt wanted their wedding to feel, and our design grew organically from there. They didn’t want another everythingartdeco wedding, but rather a celebration of their unique (and nerdy!) interests in an atmosphere of enchantment and fun. With manzanita trees, mossy vignettes, lanterns, fairy lights, and even a scavenger hunt, I think we nailed the magic. And the fun. And most importantly, we created an event that felt like authentically like them.
I loved creating this memorial tree, placed on the center of the escort card table, to honor those family members who couldn’t celebrate with Marta & Matt.
And speaking of the escort card table, we assigned every guest their own tiny lantern to guide them to their seat for dinner!
Matt wanted the head table to have it’s own number, and naturally he wanted that number to be zero. Done and done.
Fairy lights for days.
These two are such a funny, thoughtful, and creative pair, and were such a joy to work with.
Marta is a talented artist and painted these adorable cake toppers herself. I really admire
that she gave herself a creative task, but didn’t feel the need to take on ALL the details.
Being trusted by fellow artists is such a huge compliment and responsibility, and
I’m thrilled I could take on the details so they could enjoy their day with family and friends.
While we originally spoke about a photo scavenger hunt, we opted to go more old school,
and I created a series of clues hidden in vintage books throughout the venue for guests
Naturally the scavenger hunt ended at the dessert table, which was stacked high with boxes
of Brazilian treats.
The couples family and friends were warm and funny and their speeches were heartfelt
and full of love for Marta & Matt.
Congratulations Marta & Matt! And Happy Anniversary!
It was such a joy to be part of your wedding day!
