San Francisco City Hall | Lisa + Jess

phoenix-scottsdale-wedding-florist

We were asked to fly out to San Francisco this past March for the awaited wedding of Lisa and Jess. These two women are insanely remarkable. They dedicate their lives to the medical field, to their loving families and friends, and of course, to one another. We stayed with them for four days, and in that short amount of time, we were quickly welcomed in as part of the family (sort of). I mean, how often do the florists bunk up next to the sweet grandmother, or get to after-party with the bridal party? Almost never. So we were living it up.

We stayed in the coolest 4-storey, purple and pink house (like what one would imagine a gypsy princess to live in with her pet unicorn). It was seriously the best. Everyone was so excited, alive, giggly and genuinely enjoying each and every moment. San Franciso does that to people. There's just something in air (besides the smell of weed) that makes people happy to be there. It's S-A-N  F-R-A-N-C-I-S-C-O... no one ever complains about the city. And if they do, they are probably no fun. Congratulations, Lisa and Jess, on officially becoming Winton-Li. Yay!

The Royal Palms :: A Mixed Metal Inspired Wedding

phoenix- scottsdale-wedding-florist

Last month, we were approached by Desert Whim to collaborate on a styled wedding shoot with photographer, April Maura. The shoot was hosted at The Royal Palms Resort & Spa. Now, for those who have never been to The Royal Palms... it's a gorgeous, intimate resort with a Mediterranean vibe + luscious green gardens. It's really, really, really romantic. That's the simplest way to put it! Its surroundings transport you to another place, and it's easy to forget that we're still in Phoenix, Arizona. Countless events and weddings are held here every year, and the cool thing is that each event has a different look from the next. This venue can be transformed to fit many different styles, preferences and color palettes.

For this particular shoot, the floral inspiration for the centerpieces and bouquet was heavy greenery + whites and creams + a pop of berry. We found some amazing kale with an ivory and blush center that we paired with an assortment of eucalyptus, white ranunculus, allium and lisianthus. To fill the small gaps, we chose to add in white wax flower with a berry-colored center that perfectly complimented the hanging amaranthus. We also couldn't pass up adding in some bigger, blush-colored ranunculus. We believe that there should always be a show-stopping flower in our designs, and these ranunculus were definitely it! We wrapped the stems of the bridal bouquet and boutonnière with a pale, eggplant-colored silk ribbon that matched the table-runner, tying in the bridal accessories with the table decor.

The overall inspiration of a mixed metal design (combining various vases, goblets, dinnerware and candle holders) with a simple and sophisticated color palette, plus a lovely couple, made for an elegant and cohesive design fitting to the venue's space. It was a pleasure to be a part of this collaboration!

Alyssa and Robbie just had their 2 year anniversary, and to celebrate, they made a day trip up to Northern Arizona for a styled photo shoot with Parker Micheaels Photography. Who says that a girls' wedding dress is only to be worn on her wedding day?! ... this was the perfect excuse to put that baby back on!! Congrats to this happy couple. We had a pleasure of adding a 1209 bouquet to this very special photo shoot! Also, pink is where it's at! Those who know us, know that we love this color... foreverrrrr and ever.

Marsala-inspired autumn wedding for Andrea + Robbie

Married October 22, 2016

Wow! What a month... October really kicked our butts (in a good way). Now that we finally have time to breathe, we wanted to start sharing the weddings we were so lucky to be a part of. Andrea and Robbie's wedding was our last wedding of October, and we really couldn't have asked of a better way to cap the month. The couple was inspired by deep, bold colors. Much of their inspiration board consisted of florals and items within a marsala palette, along with pops of gold and deep purples. Designing the floral arrangements and bridal party accessories for this wedding was a treat. We felt that Andrea and Robbie's taste aligned perfectly with our style. In the end, we achieved a rich and elegant vibe that was fitting for the fall season. There is no better feeling than to see months and months of work finally come together! And a big thank you to all who were involved!!
