I had the most amazing time designing this year. Things stayed organized and fun, my assistants did amazing jobs and we just overall really rocked it!! Had the opportunity to work with old friends and new, met some amazing new vendors and decorated some wonderful new venues! Although I'm always happy for the down time during winter- ((or shall I say my family is?!)) I do so love my job and love when it starts up again in the springtime.
Ah yes- and finally achieved one of my floral wedding vendor goals! Won the Best Booth in the florist-decorator category for the Fall Bridal Expo with Central Coast Bride! I may have jumped, screamed, and told them no way- but it really was me!
looooved these succulent boxes that went to a rehearsal dinner at Summerwood Winery.
Can't get enough of these Garden roses! This collection of mauves, ivory and pinks was just dashing.
Peach and cranberry/plum are SO STUNNING!
the above is my vintage ladder- available for rental, and one of my chalkboards also available to rent, and I am happy to write your messages as well!
fun textures, floppy flowing foliage, crystal compote vases- all went amazing at Denner Vineyard!
Bright Pastels- if that makes sense!
This was for one of my favorite gal's this year- Alma- you are the cutest little button!
As a fan of color--- these were spot on for one of my weddings at The Cliffs Resort
the ombre ribbon, the two tone dahlia, fuchsia garden roses. holy cow!
with each year I find 'myself' a little more in the designs that I create. This year was my year of Astilbe and Olive Branches. I had to have them in almost everything I made!! Wispy and whimsical meets sturdy and natural. love.
Dahlias and Avalanche roses, I love the textures together and they are complimented perfectly in my rustic wooden boxes! boxes available for rent or purchase at my etsy shop.
one of my favorite 'backyard weddings' let me tell you- if I had a backyard like this one, well, I would need a few extra weddings booked to get me one!! It was so stunning, right outside slo in the Edna area.
my little cutie client Ashley, I didn't get to meet her until her wedding day!

My garden urns, available for rent or purchase, and again my rustic boxes. great for altar and centerpieces!
POSSIBLY MY FAVORITE- It was May, (I was also a May bride 7 years ago) we were at Dana Powers Barn (I could live there if Judi would let me), and I made about 75 total feet of solid white floral table runners. Still so insanely in love with the fun details, mercury glass elements, and not to mention an absolutely stunning bride that is also one of the sweetest most down to earth ladies I got to work with! yippee!
I love me some pops of color! and a bridal shower for Jackie in my own backyard!
oh Summerwood Inn- how I have come to obsess about you! I think this venue will be one of the most desirable upcoming venues, beautiful- and amazing people!
Overall the best year yet! These images are just a tip of the ice burg that we tackled, and what a great time it was! I for sure could not have done it with out my amazing, talented, wonderful, beautiful,
best in the whole world assistant, helper, friend, business question answerer, adventurer, and yep- she's my sister too!! Thank you so much Krista for all that you do for me.
