More of this yellow and white Summer Wedding

We are big fans of intimate weddings over here at Gorgeous & Green! This ceremony was a charming gathering, twinkling with delicate details. The illusion of enchanted flowers growing from moss, roses captured in bell jars, and golden glowing fruits brought this dreamy tablescape to life.

Gorgeous warm and slightly tropical wedding at Beltane

Gorgeous warm and slightly tropical wedding at Beltane

On a golden August afternoon Sarah and Lahiru stood under a majestic Oak tree, flanked by colorful statement arrangements designed especially for them by yours truly. The love between these two was palpable. It was our absolute pleasure to adorn their special day! 


Gorgeous and Green Bridal Bouquet with peaches yellows corals and pinks anthurium for Napa Wedding


Sarah's bridal bouquet was like a sweet bowl sherbet, swirling with raspberry, lemon, and peach hues. We balanced the thick, many-petaled textures of roses, ranunculus, and dahlias with touches of sleek tropical foliage and anthuriums. Trailing honey-colored ribbons heightened the romantic vibe and matched the quality of the light.

Heart-shaped anthurium complimented the ruffled texture of fragrant garden roses, accented with scabiosa and stock flowers. Each bud vase was unique, creating a tablescape with interest and variety.

Rambling muslin runners that Gorgeous and Green dyed and provided as part of the table decor, bud vases, candles, and colorful glassware festooned the family style tables; while larger, lush centerpieces graced the round tables. Creamy linens on the rounds provided soft contrast for the warm tones of the centerpieces. The natural wood of the long tables set the tone for that special Napa mood.

White and yellow blooms and textures and a little tropical feel for this Summer Wedding

White and yellow blooms and textures and a little tropical feel for this Summer Wedding

For this event at the Hacienda de las Flores, we created a story book wedding with a tropical and refreshing twist. Think lemons pineapples and buttery yellow grapes, garden roses and soft grasses, lush petals and romantic vibes.

It was an especially hot day with temperatures climbing to 110 degrees, but the flowers and the wedding party made a valiant effort to look splendid and beautiful.

Here's the first installment of the beautiful photos we received from that special day. Enjoy.

San Francisco Tropical Wedding

Tropics on the Water

 This Summer has been a whirlwind of weddings, and lucky for us, it was punctuated with a fair helping of tropical blooms and soft local grown goodness! We have loved getting our hands on the structured, rich foliage as well as the juicy colors offered by these hot-weather pretties.

For Jen and Jordan, we combined sherbert tones with a sweet selection of fruit on the tablescapes. Palm frond table settings combined with the nautical surroundings of Fort Mason's General's residence to set the vibe for a sumptuous evening of love and fun with a tiki vibe. 

We worked with one of our event planning pals, Kellyne of Hand and Heart Events. Between her great planning credentials and our eye for bright details, it was another wedding success.

Check out the pics!

Destination Wedding in Carmel, Sneak Peek

Destination Wedding in Carmel, Sneak Peek

This past year we were able to do a few destination weddings at some wonderful properties in our home state, the beautiful California. Here is a sneak peak at the amazing color and joy we presented for a couple in Carmel, CA this fall. 

Julia and Paras hosted a multi-day feté to pay homage to their combined diverse cultures. Western/American, Japanese and Indian cultures were taken into consideration in choosing food, ceremony and decor.

The 3 day event took place at The Holly Farm. Filled with lush gardens, crushed granite pathways, garden nooks and plenty of natural beauty and peace. Our floral, plant and fruit designs matched perfectly; but also stood out in the most flavorful way.
