Angelina and David

Angelina envisioned transforming her Arcadia home into a romantic, rose filled paradise for her wedding ceremony. The realization of Angelina's dream would have been impossible without Coordinator Amanda Ma of Fresh Events. Not only did Amanda assist in fleshing out Angelina's vision, but she served as the Chinese/English translator as well! For the bride's grand entrance, a bridge was built over the pool. Low, lush arrangements in pink and lavender tones lined the sides of the bridge and were later transferred to the dining table after the ceremony.

Three tall and large monochromatic arrangements in lavender, white and pink tones were evenly spaced on the guest table to add visual interest. Votives were added through out the table to produce a warm, romantic glow.

The head table was adorned with 4 tall, rose encrusted candelabra that had been previously been used to decorate the four corners of the pool. Large and small votives were used to balance out the table.

It was truly a pleasure working on Angelina and David's wedding. The bride wanted a LOT of flowers, and she definitely got them! The end result was a lavish, warm and romantic floral design that could rival any Hollywood movie set.

David and Maggie

One of our very own decided to tie the knot! After 8 years of dating, David and Margaret celebrated their love with an intimate ceremony in Dana Point on August 14th, 2010.
The flowers for this Mexican themed wedding were a mix of orange,white and burgundy dahlia's and red daises.

David has been a dear friend and loyal employee for the past 10 years and we wish him a lifetime of good health, love and happiness with his beautiful bride Maggie.

Shannon and Phil

I got a really nice thank you note from Shannon that I wanted to share with everyone:


Thank you so much for everything you did to make our wedding day special! You were so helpful, patient, and flexible and I cannot thank you enough for everything. During such a stressful time, it was so reassuring to have someone like you to guide me and help me with everything you could. (not to mention the flowers were absolutely gorgeous!) I will remember the flowers forever- they absolutely made our wedding! Thank you!

Shannon and Phil

4-5 years ago I designed the flowers for Shannon's sisters wedding. When I met with Shannon for her own wedding, she was having lots of issues with her locations so I helped her through some of the issues and found solutions that everyone was happy about. Not only did we keep costs within her in budget, we created a floral design that, if I do say so myself, looked like it could have easily been twice what she budgeted for the flowers.

Thank you Shannon for allowing us to be apart of your wedding day!

Summer Favorite: The Dahlia

Summer greetings all! This past weekend we designed some centerpieces for a simple yet intimate wedding. We used seasonal dahlias in white, red and burgundy to create centerpieces that alternated between the low square vase and the tall branches. I took a few quick snaps with my cell, so I will be sure to post brighter, more detailed pictures soon.

Sample Centerpiece

Here are a few photos of a sample centerpiece that I am working on for a wedding that is taking place in a couple of weeks. The 4 ft. candelabra is covered in pink and lavender roses, white hydrangea and kale.
