Annelise & Rayne – A garden wedding in San Francisco

We had the pleasure of traveling to San Francisco to work with Annelise and Rayne on their big day. Our friend, Jerri Woolworth, coordinated and designed this beautiful event. Annelise was the epitome of of a glowing bride. The feel for the day was all about over the top garden florals with a few eclectic touches.

The bride carried a gorgeous bouquet composed of garden roses in peach and ivory with white anemones, lavender sweet pea, ivory ranunculus, and lavender. To bring in some textural touches we accented it with fern, explosion grass, peris, and berzilla berries. This stunner was wrapped in a textured fabric with bead fringe.

The bridesmaids who were all Annelise’s nieces carried small versions of the bridal bouquet while the flower girls carried butterfly nets filled with petals to sprinkle. Rayne grew up in an area where abalone shells were in abundance on the beach so we gave a special nod to his home town by using shells for the ring bear pillow, aisle arrangements and boutonnieres.

The guests dinned at tables with large arrangements resting on top of chandeliers. The bases were surrounded by mini fern plants in mercury glass vases. It was truly breathtaking as you walked into the yard from the house and saw the centerpieces inviting you to come and enjoy the beautiful September weather.
