9/17/2011 - Kristen & Jesse

After meeting with Kristen at our first consultation, I was so excited for their wedding. When she told me she wanted somewhat of a Tuscan/wine theme, I instantly started thinking about all the weddings I've seen online taking place in California vineyards. I've always thought those weddings were beautiful & finally I was able to design flowers for a wedding at a vineyard too!

The wedding & ceremony took place at Samson Estates Winery near Lynden.

Kristen's bouquet had a mixture of white hydrangea, dahlias, eggplant mini calla lilies, mini cymbidium orchids & a couple varieties of lavender roses.

How cute are all these blond bridesmaids! I love their jewelry too! Their bouquets were made up of roses, dahlias, freesia & hypericum berry.

The aisle arrangements doubled as some of the centerpieces for the reception. The boxes were filled with an assortment of flowers in all shades of purple.

The vases also were used for the centerpieces at the reception.

Being a windy location, a unity candle would definitely not work (rarely does in outdoor ceremonies). Instead, the bride & groom wrote each other letters. Above is the wood box the letters were in along with a bottle of wine from the winery of which I'm sure they'll drink on an upcoming anniversary!
Congratulations Kristen & Jesse!
