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!
Okay, so another crazy weekend has gone by and another blog is up for sharing and hopefully some ooing and ahhing:) Angel and Ian actually got married almost a month ago now (phewww that was a fast month!)
Angel wanted to go for a super feminine look with ruffly pinks and creamy whites. We had a ton of peonies and soft pink garden roses in the kitchen of the flower shop for this wedding… it was so stinkin’ pretty!
Here are some of the photos of what we did, hope you all enjoy them!
Caroline is actually a friend of mine. I met this pint-sized cutie back while I was working for Kate Spade in 2008. Caroline’s style is very girly and classic, from the polka dotted Kate Spade bowls she incorporated into her table décor, to the pom poms of tulle that hung from the trees at her ceremony, she was true to her personal style!
We arrived at the Viscaya at nine am on Sunday for the quaint morning nuptials to see the bride hop out of the car in what else but a baby pink satin robe! Soooo Caroline! She dawned a soft birdcage veil with a large Crème bow on top and the prettiest shade of pink lips.
The bouquet was solid white and crème shades of peonies. This was quite the challenge, considering peony season is just beginning to creep upon us. We literally had to chase down vendors all over the market to snap up the last few bunches. But in the end it all worked out, they all opened up beautifully for her big day!
With only seventeen guests, there was one grand kings table to decorate. A runner of Ivory lace and four large bouquets of crèmes, whites, and ivory flowers lined the center of the table. Hydrangeas, carnations, vendela roses, and ball mums looked so clean and chic for this wonderful occasion.
Take a look at some of the snapshots we took from Caroline and Evan’s big day, we hope you get a little inspired!
We met with Carmen (the mother of the bride) several months before the wedding, she was a doll from the start! She was so well prepared with a folder full of magazine clippings and pinterest finds… things that inspired them spilled onto our desk. Old world style with almost a Victorian feel, soft buttery shades of champagnes, ivories, blushy cremes and the softest greens were the colors that drew their attention. Michelle (the bride) was a very classy girl with a J. Crew sense of style, timeless and elegant, she opted for topiaries on her guest tables. The family loved mercury glass (which is incredibly popular right now), so we planted tiny trees inside different shapes and sizes of them for each table.
They also went with a slight travel theme for the reception. There were different table names that corresponded with certain areas the couple had visited, as well as globes and maps on the sign in table! This was a very classy event, so detail oriented, it went without a hitch! The perfect holiday look, and the most amazing family to work with, we had a great time!
Hope you all enjoy the photos and we also hope you all had a fabulous Holiday!
Clark and Michelle’s wedding at Le Rivage was such a great example of the “bridal” look. It was very classic and romantic. It was a good sized wedding, so to show to all of our readers an idea of the time that it takes to create a wedding like this, we took lots of in-the-works photos. Keep in mind that we had three other large weddings the following weekend that were being prepped for, while we were designing for Clark and Michelle’s big day.
The best way to keep everything smooth during the process is to organize! We like to designate certain areas of the flower shop to certain events. Going through tons of Oasis, we had some nice sized cardboard boxes to be labeled and help keep things in order. Not only does this keep us from getting all confused, but it is kind of fun to see the areas start to come together and go from a piece of foam and tape, to a lush, fresh floral arrangement!
The week starts off with gathering all of the needed glassware and votives. We wash and pack everything by hand, then we create the containers by cutting the needed Oasis and taping it secure. Buckets are filled and set out for the fresh flowers, we get to bed early and then it’s up bright and early to buy flowers in San Francisco! All of the flowers we use are hand chosen by us each week. Most things are grown in California, but the more sought after or delicate flowers like Orchids or white Hydrangeas are shipped in from places like Thailand or Colombia!
Enjoy the photos and little blurbs, we hope that this helps you all understand what goes into each event.
