My husband, Sean and I wanted our wedding to be very “us”. We envisioned a very laid back wedding filled with DIY touches and lots of love. We made all the decor, including 180 material flowers for every place setting. We chose a barn (Strawberry Farms) for our venue because everything else in Orange County was too formal for our taste. My girlfriend from high school made our beautiful cake (Cake Obsessions).
We were going to do all of our flowers but about mid-way through the planning process, I had a panic attack about this. I just envisioned the flowers arriving in the mail wilted and the day of the wedding being stressed about all the bouquets and centerpieces! All I can say is thank goodness I found Christa Rose of Floral Designs by Christa Rose! She put all my fears to rest and was an absolute dream to work with. She filled the barn with grey and white wedding flowers – beautiful white hydrangeas and baby’s breath and made stunning bouquets filled with anemones, garden roses, ranunculus and dusty miller.
Our photographer (Color Me Rad) and our videographer (618 studios) were friends, which made for a very fun night! All in all the day was absolutely magical and exactly what we wanted!
