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


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



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.



Loving these Bridesmaid dresses! What an amazing shade to choose.


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.
The infamous Daddy, Daughter photo…. all together now… “AWWWWWW”
Delicate centerpieces in interesting vessels make for the perfect accent in this already decadent room!

Candice and Victor at The Firehouse



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!

This TULIP, yes I said TULIP was just mouth-watering!
Another awesome shot of our favorite Tulip, some golden-sprayed greenery, and of course the awesome gold sequin wrap!
Love this alley-way entrance to the uber quaint Firehouse in Old Sacramento
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.
Garden blooms in an interesting golden vessel really enhances the room’s warmth.



Who doesn’t love ranunculus boutonnières?!


Loving this one of our adorable bride and her two cute girls!


And of course the grand finale! Awwwwwwwww

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 🙂

Amanda, Jackie and myself at the Terrarium workshop!
Some of our awesome plants and succulents from Delano Nursery in San Francisco, we loved the assortment.
My mom made this bad boy to serve as an interesting chandelier for over the conversation pit area… isn’t it to die for?!
I honestly think that these gold dinos were my favorite part of the workshop!
Thanks to Dogwood party rentals for hooking us up with some rad chalk boards.
It was a packed house at our workshop… what a great time we all had.


Our new helpers… we pay them in Pabst
Andy is getting artsy!
We love the intense color combinations here! The cool army man battling this GIANT spider makes us smile, especially in that neon pink color!
Just some yummy leftovers…
The cake Amanda made was just gorgeous, and tasty too may I add.
It’s all about the details, we really tried to incorporate the mix matchy hipster vibe throughout all of our displays… even around the treats!


Juices for mimosas anyone?
I was kind of obsessed with this hippie tent, compliments of mom and grandma’s linen cabinets 🙂
We even made the bathtub pretty… give the girls a little something pretty to look at while they’re on the pot! ha!


Spring time is here! Let there be flowers!!



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!

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

Southwestern Table at Pottery Barn


Hi guys!

We were lucky enough to participate in the bridal event held at our local Pottery Barn in Roseville. They gave us two tables to decorate and we had such a blast getting creative! The first table in the front of the store was more of an eastery styled look with soft pastel shades and vintage egg cups.  Unfortunately, I didn’t get out there to take photos of it, but our dear friend Amanada did! Check out her blog at

Here are some of the shots that I took at the event, hope you guys get inspired! Bridal doesn’t have to be girly or “bridal” to be totally awesome… we LOVE this look and can completely visualize it on a ranch complete with campfire s’mores and maybe even a sprinkling of lightning bugs!



Our favorite duo Amanda and Ryan photo-bombing our picture! We love those two 🙂
A snapshot of our table.
We chose to use the Ridge flatware to enhance the rustic elements in our design. Wooden chargers and leather stamped napkin rings were used at each place setting.


Side view of our gorgeous centerpiece at the show. Our Mexican bean pot is filled to the brim with soft romantic flowers in shades that nod to the warm Southwest!
Crystal geodes are so in right now, so we decided they would add a nice shine to our tabletop. Subtle hints of Eucalyptus and Thistle balance out the warm tones with a cool touch of rustic!


Old Man’s walking stick was the perfect choice for our gnarly chandelier. We braided together bits of twine in a macrame-type style to hang more geodes from to create a kind of whimsy to keep things from getting too masculine.
Hand painted feathers and polished crystals dangle over the table.

Bridal Show Prettiness


This past Sunday was the bridal fair at the Grand Island Mansion. This being our home away from home, we absolutely took part! We wanted to do something a little more playful this time around. Normally, at a bridal fair you would opt for something very… well… bridal!

Using the most awesome vintage yellow chairs, we decided on a bold striped linen from our favorite ladies at La Tavola Fine Linen. They are located in downtown Sacramento and have the most amazing selection of gorgeous prints and patterns. Solids, sequins, napkins, and even seat cushions, you name it they’ve got it! We took the lemon yellow chairs and bold black and white and paired it with this seasons hottest color! Pantone is calling it Radiant Orchid. Here is our take on the new look, hope you enjoy it!
