Texture, anemone and jasmine was the name of the game for Geoff + Melissa for their big day this past April. It’s one of my favorite months for weddings in terms of seasonal availability. Spring time, the flower world is your oyster. For them we wanted to play up local rustic vibes with foraged olive, lavender, jasmine and pampas grass. We then added smaller textural flowers like misty blue, wax flower and astilbe. We still wanted to keep it blushy neutral so we added quicksand roses, carnations and anemone for that tiny pop of color.The venue, Le Sangreal is so gorgeous that we didn’t want to take away from the Malibu Hillsides that were so full of color bouncing back from the recent fires. Plus those views!

Ceremony we kept is simple with two large arrangements in wood bowls on wood pedestals with a light sprinkling of petals down the side of the aisle. We later repurposed those on the sweet heart table.

For the reception that was located on the main lawn we did a mix of vintage bottles on half the tables and small arrangements in low wood bowls. The Father in Law made the table menus that were so cute and festive for the taco dinner. Each place setting we swagged with foraged lavender that we tucked into the napkins on the bamboo plates.

Megan Macias of Festive Event Planning was running the show which always makes my day such a joy and so so easy especially when I am recovering from a broken wrist (!).
