Aileen’s bouquet monday: ‘Flame’ calla lilies

Now that the color changing of the leaves are in full effect, I’m reminded that San Diego does indeed get a taste of the seasons. A dramatic statement is made by comprising the entire bouquet of these stunning and elegant flowers. These calla lilies make the quitessential autumn bouquet; the colors are so vibrant and rich, especially against a bride’s […]

Aileen’s Bouquet Monday: floral handbag

A wonderful alternative to the traditional flower baskets and halos are floral purses. They’re suitable for the young flower girls, as well as the junior bridesmaids. A chic purse covered in makara orchids, with contemporary accents like a sleek wooden handle, orange crystals, and embossed leather can make any girl feel grown up and special […]

Hotel Del Coronado Beach wedding: Lavish in pink

The greatest things about San Diego are the weather and the beach.   Having a beach wedding at the Hotel Del Coronado is part of the ultimate San Diego experience.  Mindi and Jeffrey’s day was all about perfect weather and tons of pretty details. What girl doesn’t want to be a “princess” bride and have […]

Aileen’s bouquet Monday: luxurious lavender

The texture of the petals were so velvety, it made me feel like I came upon a great vintage find in an antique shop. I’m enamored with the wardrobe from The Changeling and wanted to create a […]

Bouquet Monday by Aileen: Luscious Green Bouquets

These bouquets were from a wedding we did not too long ago. The reception was white, brown, and gold with hints of green. These bouquets are a combination of my favorite green flowers: hydrangea, cymbidium orchids, and viburnum. But what stands out for me are the green phaleonopsis orchids, which gently hover above and give these […]

A La Valencia Hotel Wedding~ Laura and Bob

Laura was referred to me by my sweet friend and a phenomenal wedding coordinator {Catherine Bachelier Smith}.  Laura and Bob’s wedding was classic and timeless.  She carried a beautiful white bouquet of fragrant gardenias, garden roses and orchid blossoms.  Which complimented very well with her gorgeous Monique Lhuiller gown.  We used the petals of 1400 […]

Bouquet Monday by Aileen: A little bit country….

I was so excited by the leather bouquet the other week that I couldn’t resist using it again. While the other was a bit modern, I decided to make this more rustic. To enliven the neutral colors of the leather, I used beautiful orange coral roses. Contrasting the roses are green sedum, which gives it […]
