Green Gables Wedding Flowers

Jackie and Kevin's Wedding at Green Gables Estate
Photos by Ashley Concolino

This gorgeous couple's wedding day was so full of the love of family and friends, you could feel the joy everywhere you turned! Lots of bridesmaids, groomsmen and little ones were there to take part in the celebration, and I'm so grateful for the amazing photography of Ashley Concolino to capture the beauty of it all!

(Since I was a little girl, if anyone asked me my favorite color, I would answer "magenta!" Even now it's the first color I choose for my watercolor palette, so working with these flowers made me very happy!) 

Jackie's bouquet is layered with luxurious blush and berry-colored dahlias, English garden roses, and the prettiest magenta ranunculas, and on wedding day when I saw those fabulous shoes, I knew I'd gotten it right!!

Kevin and the guys looked so good in their blue suits with the bright bottle-cap boutonnieres! From the flowers on the swing, the dainty baby's breath halos on the flowergirls, to the candle-lit centerpieces and wedding cake with sprinkles, this was a fun, colorful, and memorable wedding!

Wishing you joy, Jackie and Kevin!

Wedding Flowers, Ranch House at Del Sur

Favorite San Diego Wedding Flowers: Big Blush Peonies! 

Corey and Brad's Summer Wedding

Wedding Venue: The Ranch House at Del Sur 

Yes, everyone loves peonies, including this stylish bride and groom, who chose a palette of blush and beige for their wedding flowers, so we at Floral Occasions enjoyed the luxury of using our favorites! Special thanks to Gabriel Conover Photography for these great photos!  
Corey's bridal bouquet is filled with big blush peonies, English garden roses and spray roses, the popular Quicksand beige roses, with sweet buds of lisianthus and a bit of pretty greenery. The Groom's bout is made of English garden spray roses and buds, with just a simple wrap around the  stems. Natural and elegant!

Corey's bouquet is constructed in a layered effect so it looks amazing from every angle. Her bridesmaids carry sweet and simple posies.  A bride should always be surrounded by her best girls on such a special day!

The Ranch House at Del Sur is lush and green, even on this bright summer day. We placed sprays of fresh flowers in an easy arrangement around the arch, and hung jars of eucalyptus greenery and roses (which will be re-used as centerpieces)  from shepherd hooks along the petal-strewn aisle for a completely romantic effect!
And here are just a few photos of the beautiful ceremony...

Wishing this super sweet couple the best of everything, and thank you!

Green Gables Estates is one of our most beautiful San Diego Wedding venues, and I'm so excited to share these great photos of Tiffany and Chris's wedding flowers and decor. My thanks to Aaron Huniu Photography for capturing not only the gorgeous details of the day, but also the special connection between these two, and the sweet, loving spirit among family and friends that day!
Tiffany described her style and color palette as "all kinds of berries", warmed up appropriately for autumn, with lots of interesting shapes and textures.  I accomplished it using deep shades of burgundy dahlias, richly hued roses and ranunculus, and lots of pods, berries, and greens, adding just a touch of gold! And if you look closely, you'll notice a special charm wraps around the stems. I think everyone really enjoyed all the flowers at this wedding, and I have to say, I love this bouquet from every angle! 

A very large and very good-looking wedding party, don't you think?


The wedding procession included these adorable little ones, with the flowergirl carrying her own miniature bouquet. The aisle is lined with beautiful crystal cones filled with garden roses and the ivory-draped gazebo looks perfect with plenty of colorful flowers overhead to frame the ceremony.  

A very happy bride and groom, love this!

Inside the reception tent,  the sweetheart table looks so romantic with a backdrop of floral garlands and crystals and the beautiful gazebo spray adorning the length of the wooden farm table.  Guest tables, set with pretty china in various patterns, held two styles of flower arrangements.
So here's to a dream come true for the Bride and Groom, and many more to come!  Thank you, Chris and Tiffany for allowing me to contribute to your wedding day.

It was a pleasure to work with these wonderful wedding professionals:
