Amanda and Jake’s Nautical Wedding

I really enjoyed working with Amanda. Her excitement for her wedding was contagious! She is as sweet as she is beautiful and looked like a princess and together with Jake, a bit like royalty.

This bamboo arbor courtesy of Niche Event Rental  is one of my favorites. We adorned the arbor with lavender roses, white and green hydrangea, fuchsia mokara orchids, willow and Italian ruscus looked very romantic.

Ana and Nathan’s Wedding at Quail West

What a wonderful time we had with Ana and Nathan! I had the pleasure of doing the floral for Ana’s sister a while back. I worked for their family at The Watermark Grille when I first came to Florida 8 years ago. So it means so much to do another wedding, I love this family if you can’t tell!! Ana chose a pallatte of blush pinks, ivory and pale green. The floral came together perfectly, and was so beautifully captured by Doreen Kline Photography. Enjoy these pictures!

I was admiring friends, Astrid and Rene’s website and blog and came across a wedding we did together last year. Maria and Mark, I remember their wedding, I so loved the ceremony decor and the colors she chose. Enjoy these pics by Astrid and Rene Photography and a simply elegant cake by Daniella of Ella’s Cakes. Maria chose a bouquet of pink and white garden roses with white hydrangeas and white phaleonopsis orchids… beautiful!
