A Home Grown Wedding

It is difficult to even begin to describe the joy that was designing the flowers for F&N's beautiful wedding; I was just totally blown away by the kindness and positive energy of everyone involved. A close friend of the bride's family lovingly grew the majority of the flowers for the celebration in her hillside garden overlooking the Valley (above), which I supplemented with some locally grown delphinium, peonies, ranunculus, and tulips. The result was a happy explosion of color, just as F&N wanted. :)


  1. Swoony! but also I can imagine how much work however joyful!

    What are the cascades of tiny pink flowers at 4th from the top? I am looking to grow more fillers with tiny flowers/buds and berries and am asking the pros for their suggestions?...

  2. Yes, but a wonderful kind of work! : )

    The little pink flowers are a whole lot of coral bells, or heuchera. They have lovely leaves, too, and I think are often grown for them. They are beautiful as a cut, but I'm not sure how long/well they hold up (these were cut the day before). Worth a few vase trials!

  3. So beautiful!
    I've missed you all week. Thanks for the beauty infusion :)

  4. Jaime, glad you're back! A charmed life of flowers you're living back in Cali. Makes me so homesick.

  5. Happy explosion of color indeed. Love the "aisle" flowers.

  6. Erin- I've missed YOU! I'm just now getting a bit more caught up on life. Next up on the list is getting over to the Floret blog for MY beauty infusion : ).

    Floralgirl- Thank you and welcome!

    Shelly- Oh no! I'd hate to contribute to anyone's homesickness, especially for California from Boston! I have been there and totally feel for you. Do you ever make it back for visits??

    Jane- Thank you! It was a pretty spectacularly beautiful vista to start with . . . What a joy to be able to provide the colorful frosting on the cake : )
