sara and michael - long beach

this wedding design pretty much screamed fun! with jesi haack on board, you always know you're gonna get something unique, funky and playful...that's why i love working with her - she always "goes there"...

i loved that the couple chose a color scheme of turquoise, yellow and coral - so vibrant and loud! to keep it from going too much into the "primary colors/grade school" realm, we decided to do the florals in monochromatic AND monobotanical arrangements...this made it still feel fresh and contemporary...overall it was a day full of life, love and whimsy!


the adorable invites were done by the girlies at posh paperie...



bridal bouquet of all white peonies - crisp and classic...



bridesmaids bouquets consisted of yellow daffodils, double tulips, fringe tulips and billy balls...



little boutonnieres of white ranunculas and yellow billy balls...



each bridesmaids' bouquet was finished in a different combination of trims and buttons...




for the ceremony aisle, we laid out a turquoise ruffled runner and lined both sides with cream colored rose petals...


little cocktail table arrangements of yellow billy balls and acacia...


we used mini white ceramic squares that we adorned with a teal ribbon wrap and a teal fabric rosette...



the centerpieces were made up of 3 varying height vases that were all hand-wrapped in a bold, graphic print (either coral/white or yellow/white fabric)...i called this my "scandinavian wedding" because the fabrics we used looked straight out of an ikea catalog :)


the table linens were a turquoise matte satin and the crisp white chiavari chairs kept it fresh and modern...i just LOVE white chairs against a pop of color...


we filled the vases with all white hydrangea, all white ranunculas, all white tulips or all white china mums...



oh my...this amazing backdrop was created by jesi haack and i couldn't.stop.staring...i just fell in love with the stripes and the paper flowers! it was one of a kind...


and of course the beautiful desserts were done by my personal fave, sweet and saucy shop!




we did a custom fabric wrapped cake base that would later hold the 3 tier white cake, which i accented with yellow pincushions and billy balls...
