Last Wedding of 2008!

I am officially on vacation now! I have a few sweet months to recuperate from a very busy and exciting year. During this time I plan to a) enjoy the holidays! b) move into my NEW HOUSE! more to come on that! and c) take a two week trip to Thailand. Then it’s full-force back into wedding flower mode!

I couldn’t think of a better way to end the year than with Tran and Peter! Tran and Peter’s wedding was a happy, colorful affair. They wanted the flowers to be lush, modern and to pop in the photos. They also wanted to add natural, “eco” elements. This was accomplished with lots of cardboard, wood, branches, handmade rice and batik papers, and recycled glass vases. I loved the contrast of the bright, almost florescent colors against all the earthy elements. So striking!

Angel Swanson was the fabulous coordinator. I am always amazed with how much love and care Angel puts into her weddings. She is so hands-on with every project, and even went to Trans house to help her wrap dozens and dozens of candy apple favors days before the wedding. The Image is Found shot this wedding, and I cannot wait to see the magic they worked behind the lens!

Until I can show you the pro pics, here are some gorgeous teaser shots taken by my hubby Joe!

A trail of paper wrapped candles lined the "stream" fountain at the Diamond Bar Community Center.  When the sun began to set during the ceremony, it was a truly magical scene.

Wooden boxes filled with moss and manzanita branches framed the couple during the ceremony.  Recylcled glass vases, orchids, and candles hung from the branches.

I loved the way the candles reflected off the plexiglass columns.  Me and my plexiglass again!

Using cylinders and bubble bowls in new ways.  Look at those escort cards made of corrugated cardboard, created by the groom himself!  I told him he should definitely go into the wedding business.

The last 3 pictures are from the Crazy Booth series over at The Blog is Found. The Image is Found knows how to bring out the crazy in anybody, including grandmas and wedding coordinators (and their assistants)! hehe. Check it out here!

And there she is, the gorgeous bride herself!  Peter is protecting his woman from the beasts.  Her bouquet featured fuchsia peonies, ranunculus, bouvardia, roses, and lots and lots of orchids.

The bridal party- each bridesmaid carried a different bright bloom to stand out against their gorgeous steel grey dresses.  The gentlemen wore clusters of mokara orchids on their lapels.

Thank you Tran and Peter for being so wonderful, creative, and trusting! It took us a little while to really pin down the vision for your wedding, but once we did, it all came into place beautifully. Enjoy your first Christmas together as man and wife!
