Amanda and Peter say I do at The Grand Island Mansion

image
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.

Delicate centerpieces in interesting vessels make for the perfect accent in this already decadent room!

Our Very First Workshop!

Hi Guys!

So sorry we haven’t posted in a little while, we are just getting so swamped with the start of the season and everything. However, we have been working on this amazing event and we are SO thrilled to share some more photos with you. We especially cannot wait for our lovely photog friend Amanda to share our professional photos:)

After coffee with friends one night we decided to go ahead and make plans for our first workshop hosted at the flower shop! We absolutely wanted to go with the very popular terrarium theme… since we had already been told by friends that they really wanted to make one for themselves…

It was such a HUGE success, we loved having some familiar faces as well as some new ones there to share in all the fun! Hope you guys enjoy the photos and we can’t wait to shoot out some more 🙂

Spring time is here! Let there be flowers!!

DSC_0991

 

As we all re-adjust our clocks and the sun starts to shine, we can’t help but be elated over the comings of spring-time! (whoa didn’t mean to rhyme there!)

Anyways, our windows are open and the birds are singing as we do paperwork and arrange kick-off plans for our upcoming brides. It’s inching closer and closer to April and the start of our events are nearing closer and closer. Ahhhhhh SO EXCITED.

Until then, here are some more photos of one of the other arrangements we did for the Pottery Barn show a few weeks ago. We couldn’t possibly get more Spring than these few photos here! Hope you enjoy all the prettiness:)

Styled Garden Shoots: New at the Flower Shop!

10 copy

Hi Guys!

So we were lucky enough to have this little cutie come by the flower shop to say hello. She is a pint-sized model for the company Lookie-Boo and was photographed by Amanda Rose Photography at our flower shop in a mini Dior children’s dress for an online couture rental company.

Being approached by an old bride of ours (she’s not OLD at all by the way) to use the flower shop as her canvas for this mini shoot, we were more than happy to get involved! We had such a blast pulling props for this tiny cutie that we got to thinking… why not offer the shop to be used as a one-stop photo shoot location? We’ve have several brides suggest the idea to us but we just never really got around to really letting the idea sink in.

With a barn and old wooden shed packed to the brim with vintage goodies and trinkets to use as props, it would make an awesome place for children, babies, families, and of course engaged couples or even our own upcoming brides to take some awesome photos. You could have your choice of props to play with and even our collection of vintage furniture as well! We ourselves have done countless shoots in the garden here, so why not share?

For inquiries or pricing information please call the shop at 916. 685. 9233

Rustic Romance

DSC_0552

Hi Guys!

This past week we had three different weddings. With all different looks going on, it was hard to only choose one to post today. We had one that was a more fall color combination in the morning time at Grand Island Mansion, One that was tall full centerpieces of white hydrangeas and green apples at Lake Natoma Inn and this one shared in the post was a gorgeous rustic romantic look. We were so fortunate to snap up the last of the Ranunculus and white Anemones! This wedding was held  at a private home up in the Folsom area.

Hope you enjoy the snapshots from this event and we will post up the rest of the photos from our other two events shortly!

Have a fabulous Monday everyone.

Some fun boutonnières. Our Bride wanted them to be a nice mix match of all her favorite blooms, this is a fun alternative to all matchy matchy personal flowers.

Dorinda and Aaron at Silva’s Sheldon Inn

Hi guys!

WOW. So sorry it’s been so long since my last post… June is madness at the flower shop and we are up to our eyes in flowers and rentals! The shop is in shambles, I’m actually going there as soon as I post this to get it into shape for the next week of craziness.

Anywho, I have a nice little stock pile of photos from weekends past to share with you all! This one that I’m sharing today is actually our most recent creation. Dorinda is a friend of ours we met at the Red Door antique shop in Elk Grove. She is actually a vendor there and sells some awesome chalk painted furniture.

Naturally, we clicked. Our common love for vintage treasures was a great jumping off point for the planning process and she gave us such free range when it came to design! We love that.

Dorinda and Aaron also wanted to have their more intimate wedding at one of our favorite restaurants in town… Silva’s Sheldon Inn! With AMAZING food, a great dining area, the sweetest and most talented staff/owners, and a beautiful organic garden.

Hope you all love the photos as much as we do!

xoxo

Intimate Romance at Viscaya: Caroline Caton and Evan Purtill

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!

Best,

Chelsie

Wedding season kick-off at The Grand Island Mansion!

DSC_0450

This last weekend was the kick-off of our wedding season!  Where else would we start it than at our home base… The Grand Island Mansion! Eurika had been planning her dream wedding for quite some time. We had been back and forth over lots of little details, vintage rentals, milk glass, what colors and types of flowers she enjoyed.

We finally decided on assortments of tall and small milk glass vessels. She rented gold mirror trays to place some assortments on to give it a more textured look. Coral, the color of the season, was in full effect and with Spring in almost full swing, there were also so many ranunculus and poppies to play with!

We did do one thing for this event that was a little different (and we loved it)!! In the Gazebo area, we decided to string soft soft peach carnations on strands of crystals. This looked amazing in the sunlight!

Here are some snapshots of her event, we hope you enjoy them.

The Bride and Groom chose to work with White Daisy Photo for their big day, these photos on the blog were taken by me, but their professional photos were taken by the wonderful White Daisy: http://whitedaisyphoto.com/

This lovely wedding was hosted by The Grand Island Mansion, to see more on this venue visit: http://www.grandislandmansion.com/

This bouquet was to die for! We loved creating this romantic look for Eurika’s big day.

Simple wax flower bunches for the bridesmaids were really quite sweet!
DSC_0478
LOVED the gloves!

DSC_0481
We really do believe that ALL of the little touches make a HUGE difference! There are so many cool tools out there for brides to get their paws on when it comes to paper goods. These little menus made such a difference on the tables and added more color and totally enhanced the overall decor!

DSC_0483

DSC_0490
Creating a very seamless look is easy to do. The table numbers were printed on newspaper, newspaper was also used on the sign in table where the gift cards were to be placed. This adds interest without being too overwhelming or distracting.

DSC_0493

DSC_0494
We loved these mixed spring bouquets for the guest tables! Lace was wrapped around some of the glass to add to her look, lace was also incorporated into the favors and votives.

DSC_0495
Flowers should make a statement no matter what size they are… I’d say these ones did their job! Thanks to the amazing San Francisco flower mart and all their wonderful vendors for such great quality goods.

Isn’t this so cute?! I’m not actually sure where the bride got this, but I’m guessing it was a way cool etsy find…
…It’s amazing what cool things you can find on Etsy!

Red Door is EXPANDING!!

We were so excited when our favorite local antique store announced that they were expanding! We got a call from our friend Ray (one of the vendors at The Red Door) that she wanted to surprise the owners of the place (Dave and Kathy) with some flowers. We were so excited to create an old world look for her and ran straight for the antique baskets! We wanted to keep things pretty neutral and true to the basket’s original era.

Here are some photos for you to check out, we hope you like it!
