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:

Stone Brewing Co. Wedding Flowers, San Diego

Stone Brewery and Disney Princess Wedding!

Alicia and Dave

Meet Alicia and Dave, a beautiful fun-loving couple who came to me with a definite and unique vision for their wedding! They were very excited to have booked Stone Brewing World Bistro and Gardens as their San Diego venue, they are definitely craft beer enthusiasts, but also wanted to make sure to include Alicia's love of Disney and all things feminine!  I think they did it just right!
Alicia's bridal bouquet was full of blush and peach garden roses, lavender roses, blushing bride protea, silver brunia and white anemonies.  It's tied with a fun scripted linen and lace ribbon, and at the last minute we attached a very special cameo brooch -- a meaningful family heirloom!
The Groom's boutonniere is made up of hops blossoms and lavender with one tiny ivory rose bud, and embellished with the iconic black and gold Stone Brewing bottle cap, wrapped with twine. 

Here's gorgeous Alicia showing off the beautiful swirls and folds of her wedding gown!

The bridal party had rooms at the Kona Kai Resort on Shelter Island for getting ready, where the stairway and mezzanine are fun spots for photos, thank you True Photography!
I really love how Alicia pulled off her theme, with her bridesmaids in the sweet pastels of Disney princesses, but with a definite edge!  Check out the boots! And you can't see it, but all the bouquets had a tiny "mickey mouse ears" emblem tucked into the flowers.
And the guys had their thing too, with a particular bottle cap picked out for each of their bouts, I'm assuming a favorite brand, and evidently some awesome socks, too!

(...being Best Man to your twin brother must have its surreal moments!)

Thank you Dave and Alicia,
May your love and enthusiasm together go on forever and ever!!
