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!

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!

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:)

Harvest Season here we come!

Hi Lovies!

Okay so this past weekend we were lucky enough to squeeze in some time for a super fun harvest-inspired shoot. We got to work with Amy at Amy Atkins photography on this special photo shoot. The couple we shot was already married (12 years) and had two adorable girls together. They were married quite young and did not get to have a super fancy wedding so this was somewhat of a re-do for them.

The bride was the sweetest and was just oozing with excitement and love for all the prettiness. Turns out the photographer set up a surprise visit from their pastor so they could renew their wedding vows! It was adorable. So they did just that… renewed their vows at sunset in front of a Jasmine-covered arbor and hanging clusters of Pomegranates. It was a good day!

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.

Hi All!

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!

At the bottom of the tall arrangements were clusters of glimmering votive candles and smaller bouquets of solid white Hydrangeas.

The head table was decorated with stems of pink mercury filled with Dusty Miller, Peonies, Roses and Hydrangeas to be slightly different from the guests’ tables.

GORGEOUS GORGEOUS linens:) Some people don’t always realize that linen can MAKE the decor at your wedding if done right! We love it.

Ugh… I LOVE this lighting. It was such a romantic evening. Even after the tripple digit weather during the hectic set up… things were perfect once the sun began to set.

We always recommend using your altar pieces again at your reception… don’t let those beauties go to waste!

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!

Diamond Le & Jack Vang

Hi All!

Frist off, we would like to wish everyone a fabulous Memorial Day Weekend!

Also, we wanted to share this adorable wedding with you all… sadly we did not take any photos of the best part… the collection of tea cup center pieces!! However, we will for sure share the professional photos when we get them.

Diamond became such a dear friend of ours through the process. She had such a fun eye and brought in oodles and oodles of cutsie inspirations. She died over anything china, pink, soft shades, lace, pearls… it was all her! One of the last weddings during the craziest weekend thus far in the season, it went off without a hitch and all was well in wedding world. We were so graciously invited to stay for dinner and were so obliged to sit and enjoy a meal together. Here are some photos of her day that we did capture… hope you all enjoy!

Best,

Chelsie

Showing the bride the proper way to hold her bouquet. It’s best to rest the bouquet on your hip so to tilt forward just a tad and show off all your lovely blooms!

Randi and Parker’s wedding at The Grand Island Mansion

DSC_0517

We met Randi a while ago, she was such a joy to have around the flower shop and we instantly bonded with her! We shared the same loves of eclectic style and collecting vintage vessels. She knew from the get go that she wanted red as her main color. We later added more textures and pops of fuchsia and oranges for accents. She also provided us with a HUGE collection of ruby red vessels to use for centerpieces (we thought we liked to collect)! Here are some of the shots we got on her big day, hope you all enjoy!

Best,

Chelsie

Horses, Horses, Horses…

DSC_0528
My favorite photo of the shoot! Photos shot by me.

When I hear horses, horses, horses, my mind initially goes to Meg Ryan in Sleepless in Seattle… singing on the way to the new in-laws house! However, I’m talking about a different horses. The Kentucky Derby is coming up, and we have been meeting with a certain bride who loves her horses!

Danielle is a bride we are working with late this summer, she is an absolute animal lover and a country girl through and through. We have been brainstorming for some cool way to incorporate her loves into her big day without being cheesy or over the top. Finally we decided a route to take… horses!

I’m sure everyone has seen the plastic animals painted gold or white for showers and other events, we wanted to play off of that look but leave it a little more rustic and kept true.

Mixing elements is one of our favorite things to do here at the shop, so we chose old trophies, show ribbons, and play horses to create a fun theme that is reminiscent of childhood. You could even add some glam to this look to create a Kentucky Derby-esque look! Have your guests wear big crazy hats and wah-lah… insta-fun!!

Anyway, we dressed up a rustic chicken coupe to look like a bookshelf and started playing with some other do-dads to create a style we feel will make your guests smile. So pull up a chair, grab an Arnold Palmer, bust out the stripy straws and stay a while!

Best,

Chelsie
