Laura @ Dogwood Party Rentals gets Hitched!

DSC_0005Soooo…. one of our FAVORITE vendors (Dogwood Party Rentals) has this daughter. Her name is Laura. She is awesome. She was an even more awesome bride. Here are some sneak peeks of her wedding at the Historic (and rumored to be Haunted) Sutter Club in Sacramento. We installed the most amazing staircase piece and we can’t wait to get the photos from the photographer! Until then… this is all we got!

Danielle and Niko’s wedding was all about rich warm fall hues. Lots of yummy colors and cool textures. The bride is a major horse lover, so we had a little fun adding equestrian details to the reception. Collections of toy horses and horse-riding ribbons and trophies were fun additions to the decor. Romantic loose style arrangements draped down from the collection of gold and crystal vessels.  This look is great for late summer and early fall brides, the Dahlias are plentiful and the garden roses are still within reach! Hope to inspire and let us know what you think.

Romantic Reds

Hello!

We had our first bridal show of 2015 yesterday at the Grand Island Mansion and are officially kicking off the new year with this awesome red wedding at Arden Hills Country Club. We did this wedding back over the summer, but decided to share it with you all today. We absolutely love the dark garnet hues and pops of white in this bouquet, berries and interesting greens make it interesting and full of garden-y goodness. Our bride and groom wanted a dramatic affair for their guests. Dark wood walls, matching chiavari chairs, rich reds and lots of crystals and candles to set the mood. We hope this one inspires you and gets your wheels turning for your own nuptials!

Amanda and Peter say I do at The Grand Island Mansion

Our vintage silver collection was perfect for this look here! Chocolate lace and soft pink roses and a fluffy peony, coupled with the delicate fresh vine gives the right amount of pop on this crisp white cloth.

 

We are SO excited to have received these amazing teasers from Kara Stewart Photography! Amanda was such a joy to work with, super easy going and with fabulous taste we might add! She decided to go with soft neutrals to help create a soft romantic feel for her and groom Peter’s big day. Being at the Grand Island Mansion is always a pleasure, it’s like our second home there, and we love all of their delightful staff. Here at Jackie’s we feel that joining your overall feel and the style of your venue is vital to having a seamless ambiance. Romantic and the mansion go beautifully hand in hand here!

Looking forward to share more photos of this lovely day in the near future, for now, enjoy the scroll!

The Bride’s bouquet was an absolute stunner! A mix of soft fluffy blooms in what we like to call “yummy” shades. We also added some more interesting blooms like this chocolate lace and scabiosa pods to toughen it up just a touch.

This gazebo was one of our favorites! Lush full garlands of Salal and Plumosa draped amongst lush clusters of white Hydrangeas and Voluminous Roses! Not to mention the antique chandelier!! And if you have a really keen eye, you may find the Phalanopsis Orchid plants and Curly Willow peeking out from the stone garden urns.

Hi guys!

So this wedding was absolutely one of my new favorites. The colors and style were both SO HAPPY! Bouncy garden roses and so many soft textural elements really amped up the ambiance for this big day. We were definitely not lacking in the drama department, it rained heavily on Saturday and so that really gave us an interesting vibe to go off of… haha. However, the rain was soft of pretty in a moody, romantic soft of way! It did stop just shortly before the ceremony, so we were able to run around like crazy people and rearrange things for the outdoor garden ceremony at the last minute.

With an adorable bridal party and amazing style, this wedding went off without a hitch and ended up being a home run!

Before we tore down the inside… it did dry up a bit for an outdoor ceremony, but I’m not gonna lie… this made me swoon a little!

Really loving the cool art work in the Eagle’s room. This wedding felt very victorian-garden-inspired!

An awesome way to utilize a mantal, empty picture frames and taper candles with touches of vines, blooms, or ribbons.

Hi Guys!

This past weekend we got to do one of our favorite couples weddings!! Taylor and Joseph got married in the evening time at the Grand Island Mansion. We have done plenty of evening weddings at the mansion, however, they are normally in the summer when it is still light outside during the ceremony. Taking the time of year into consideration, we suggested uplighting on the ceremony site area. The couple also chose to get married on the column side of the mansion, not the typical garden side. This side, if you have ever been to the mansion you know that this side is far more dramatic and grandiose. It looked absolutely amazing!

Taylor and Joseph also wanted to embrace the time of year, they chose rich jewel tones for their florals to go with the bridesmaids’ dresses (they were all different rich shades of eggplant, mango, poppy red, and a more truer purple). They also had a bevy of pumpkins lining the aisle to add to the seasonal charm!

Here are some of the photos I snapped, I hope you enjoy them and can be inspired for your big day.

The aftermath of working with fall branches. Let me just say even with the appropriate tools, cutting through a branch is quite the work out. I think I pulled something… OUCH!

Hello from inside the kitchen! Branches get banned from the design room, they tangle into everything.

These Alhambra roses were exquisite! The bright poppy hue was to die for and even the leaves were so perfect, the most dark espresso shade. Awesome variegated carnations and bouncy little bits of clover make an awesome combination. Taylor wanted to incorporate vintage broaches into each bouquet as well. This adds a touch of shine and a sentimental keepsake.

Barbados spray roses, soft pink garden roses, and our newest favorite… Romantic Antik make an awesome bunch! We wanted to keep the fall feel by incorporating fall leaves into each bouquet as well as a touch of Japanese lanterns.

Hi guys!

We are so excited about this next couple, Colleen and Jeff were friends of ours over this past year. We met Colleen through a mutual friend, as she is a STUNNING photographer! We met last December to do some styled shoots with her and wow, what a blast of a person she is! Jeff is the sweetest guy and we just loved meeting with them to talk flowers. Colleen and Jeff love the woods and huge pine trees, we incorporated lots of Douglas Fir into their arrangements, as well as rosemary and a plethora of other interesting greens. Colleen’s taste in decor was very simplistic and clean, not too fussy. We were so giddy collecting our favorite foliages at market that week! Here are some of the photos we snapped on her big day… I’m so sad I didn’t get more of her reception (we were also guests), but her amazing photographer, Bret Cole will I’m sure more than deliver in that department!

Enjoy!

I honestly don’t think I’ve ever met more adorable or well behaved flower girls and ring boys! They were so sweet and were so eager to wear their little olive crowns! Total dolls.

Their dresses and ballet slippers were the perfect touch.
