Linnea + John's Wedding on Once Wed!

I am on cloud nine.  Just got back from wrapping the most amazing photo shoot in the desert.  I'm so excited to share that project with you at the end of the month.  In the meantime, the lovely Emily has made my day by featuring Linnea + John's wedding on OnceWed.

Linnea + John hosted friends and family to a modern and sophisticated affair at Campanile Restaurant.  Their guests enjoyed a pre-ceremony cocktail hour and mingled in the courtyard while the couple hid away upstairs.  After one of the shortest and sweetest ceremonies I've ever seen (it clocked in at 3 minutes, people!) guests enjoyed an amazingly delicious meal prepared by Mark Peel and his team.  And then it was time to party - their stylish guests hit the dance floor and rocked the night away.



I designed the florals and sweets table for their event.  Linnea loved the subtle color and textures of succulents, so we played them up throughout her decor.  My favorite piece is the seating card display we created.  My husband built a wooden box structure that I designed and filled with beautifully blooming succulents.  The tablescapes looked lovely with the succulent and dahlia centerpieces alongside small glass vases filled with single blooms on burlap runners. We cut and stained each wooden plaque before painting the table numbers by hand.






I designed a sweet and savory dessert table with everything from salted nuts to yummy caramels to peanut butter filled pretzels.  Custom gooco'd bags acted as favors for guests to take home their favorite treats.




it was a lovely evening with a fun couple.  thank you Linnea + John for making yes, please and succulentLOVE a part of it all!  xo
