Kiva & Tom 

Kiva & Tom's wedding was a lot of fun.  Both of them are so fresh, young, and have great ideas.  We did an all-white color palate for Kiva's flowers using several types of roses and white ranunculus.  Another running theme was rhinestones and crystals.  We adorned Kiva's beautiful bouquet with an antique rhinestone brooch.  Her bridesmaids' bouquets were fastened with chic rhinestone buckles---very sassy!  Lastly, check out her arch adorned with hanging crystals.  Enjoy these beautiful shots from my friend and amazing photographer, David Gaston of Gaston Photography.

Bombay Nights

Billy Balls + Pool Floats + PUNJAMMIES + Indian dancers = What? BOMBAY NIGHTS! I was honored to do flowers for this extraordinary event. Bombay Nights is a Gala fundraiser at the Orange County Mansion to benefit International Princess Project. "What is International Princess Project?" you might ask! Well, let me tell you! In short, International Princess Project is a non-profit organization that works with women in India and around the world that have been forced into prostitution. Its aim is to work with rescued women at local after care centers to help provide them with a trade to support themselves: sewing. The women sew these chic pajama pants reminiscent of their own colorful saris (the fabric of India). International Princess Project then sells the PUNJAMMIES here in America. The girls earn a fair trade wage, are able to set up savings accounts, and learn a trade in which they can support themselves with dignity, while at the same time also receiving emotional, physical, and spiritual care.

Just listen to the mission: ADVOCATING for women enslaved in prostitution, RESTORING their broken lives, EMPOWERING them to live free. I am all about this.

Enjoy the photos below of the flowers at Bombay Nights. I just loved the little Indian containers we used.

Sam & Jeff

Sam is one of the most beautiful brides I have ever seen. I love her wedding photos because of the simple beauty of her dress, the candlelight images, and the bright contrasting flowers. We chose an all red color palate in dahlias and calla lilies with splashes of chartreuse green brought in with cymbidium orchids (with coordinating burgundy throat to match of course!). Her bouquet was secured with three vintage brooches. Enjoy these lovely shots from, yet again, the amazing Aaron of AHS Photography!
