We couldn’t wait to blog about this AMAZINGLY beautiful fall-inspired wedding as soon as possible!  Dripping in details and glamour, this wedding was one of our absolute favorites of 2012!  ”I knew we had fallen in love from our first meeting”, beamed Alex, co-founder of Blush Botanicals, “and the deal was really sealed after we found out we were both USC Alumni”.


Brittany chose a beautifully unique bridal bouquet of textured, fragrant blooms and fun pods.  Curly willow branches were romantically wrapped around the outside of the bridal bouquet and a textured wrapping was created from burlap and delicate gauze finished with a fun button detailing.


The traditional ceremony took place at the Village Church in Rancho Santa Fe where we dressed up their provided candle sticks with soft greenery and ivory blooms.


The absolutely awe-inspiring long head table was topped with a lush floral runner spanning the entire length of the table and delicately dripping off the sides of the table towards the floor.

Four types of centerpieces were combined to create a diverse look at the reception.  A tall wrought iron candelabra was topped with a lush, free-flowing autumn toned floral arrangement placed within a hand stained deep wood box with moss detailing.  Tall, footed mercury glass candle holders were placed within the moss and surrounded by mercury glass votives.


A second type fo tall centerpiece was created with a rustic birch-wrapped vase topped with a similar but smaller centerpiece and surrounded by mercury glass votive candles.


Rustic, moss-accented lanterns contained ivory pillar candles and were surrounded by a lush floral arrangement to match tall florals.


The last centerpiece type was created from a vintage frame surrounding a rustic grape wood branch stuffed with florals and paired with a tall trio of mercury glass candle holders.


We custom created a birch-wood covered cake platform for the beautifully detailed cake to be placed atop, complete with burlap and gauze accenting.  Dripping florals to match the centerpieces delicately cascaded down the sides of the cake.


The place cards were placed on our vintage door, dressed with A-symmetrical soft greenery and florals.
