Tayiba + Javier at The Solarium in Oakhurst

A lovely bride was Tayiba! 

She was looking for something "fresh, green and a little unusual" for her wedding flowers.  Her collection was comprised of delicate maidenhair fern, hypericum berries, green cymbidum orchids, super green roses, eucalyptus seeds, fiddlehead fern, kalanchoe, kermit poms, lily grass, dendrobium orchids, chocolate cosmos and all kinds of succulents for a beautiful, windy day in May.

Her girls wore all different styles of the 'little black dress'.  And the wind made Tayiba's veil take on a life of it's own!

I love this shot of the veil!

 Javier's boutonniere had a few strands of "explosion grass" to add a touch of whimsy.

For the buffet, a large glass cylinder vase was filled with small river rock and fiddlehead fern shoots at the bottom.  The topper was similar to the bridal bouquet with a few lily grass swirlies!

Centerpieces were like little wild terrariums.

 Classic groom's cake.

The flowers couldn't have matched the ribbon on the cake any better.

The firehouse across the street always provides a fun backdrop.

The ceremony and reception were held at The Solarium in Oakhurst.  One of my favorite venues (and not because I live in the neighborhood ;)

Kelley + Trevor at the Trolley Barn

Here is one of my favorite brides from last season!  Kelley is an amazingly creative chick and really added some super beautiful details to her day.  She was also a pleasure to work with and her mom is a hoot!  They were so much fun. 

Her bouquet was chock full of white stock, hydrangeas, white anemones, green hypericum berries, scented geranium, and mint.  It was totally gorgeous!  Anemones are always a bit tricky to work with but they behaved nicely for Kelley's day.

Kelley, an art teacher at The Children's School, made the adorable clay birds that held the signs at the drink and bar table.  She also hand wrote the signs and chose the miniature plants and containers for the decor. 

Guest favors were lottery tickets placed on a ticket holder designed and made by Kelley!
Attached was a shiny penny for extra luck. 

bloom created a fabulous floral display around a vintage birdcage on the buffet table but unfortunately there were no photos of it! 

Brides - make sure you discuss clearly with your photographer the types of photos and detail shots you would like from your day. 
Here's a thank you note from Kelley:
All I can say is that your work is amazing!  I was in complete awe when I looked around and saw all the wonderful flower details covering The Trolley Barn.  When planning our wedding, I felt that the flowers were a very important part of the event.  It was breathtaking to see our vision come to life.  Thank you so much for helping to make our wedding day one of the best days of my life.  Many Thanks, Kelley

P.S. I am all for photographers branding their images, but not when they do it smack across the center of the photo.
