There’s a certain level of kitch that comes with having a 4/20 wedding. One is having a lot of fun with the hashtag (#packabowlforcole & #coleymatrimony) and two is full creative freedom to play into it. Luckily for me, Jason and Lindsey are one of the most fun couples I know and their wedding day did not disappoint.

We started off the planning process with the general theme of boho fun meets rustic eclectic. We wanted a lot of color, cactus/succulent vibes, crystals for the rock nerds, and a hint of DIY. Basically, we lived in my aesthetic happy place. Our main flowers were: dried grasses, protea, amaranths, poppies, peonies, combo roses, fiesta carnations & blue thistle to tie the batiked napkins/table runners into the party.

For ceremony we wanted to keep that glorious creek overlook the star of the show. That floor arch was one of my favorite pieces to create to mark the ceremony space in addition to the gorgeous rug and lanterns from Party Pleasers. Lindseys bouquet was a Pink King Protea and coral charm peony party. Jason bout is now forever going to be called a “Buddonniere” (zoom in wink wink).

Cocktail Hour was full of family nods. For hightop tables we used small olive wood bowls and ikebana style arrangements to add color. For this portion of the night, Lupin was our main ingredient which was Jason’s Grandmothers favorite flower. Luckily for me it was peak season and it grows wildly in the hillsides above the shop. 10/10 would 6am hike for lupin for you two again.

Reception is where we had all the planning fun. The Sweetheart table is always my favorite. We did one long large arrangement flagged with large crystal clusters with a huge leaf detailed macrame backdrop. The peacock chairs rented from Party Pleasers was the ultimate perfect detail. For the head tables, we had two long rows of the most beautiful ranch style tables. We did large dough bowls in the center of each table and clusters of crystals, cactus arrangements, and cactus table numbers trailing in between each arrangement. It was so gorgeous. For circular guest tables, we did arrangements in small dough bowls that guests could take home at the end of the night.

It was the perfect day captured so amazing by my girls at I Heart My Groom. Thanks Ladies for the amazing photos (as always!).

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 (!).
