This just in from Lauren Brooks

These beautiful images just came in from Lauren Brooks photography. She has an amazing eye for light and form as well as the uncanny ability to capture the sweetest of moments. I just love the series of intimate images in the conservatory - she really captures the feeling of this lovely wedding.

Rain forced us to change venues at the last minute so we all rushed from Garden Vineyards over to DeArmond Garden estate where the conservatory provided shelter from the rain. Luckily the bride and groom were so kind, easy going and gracious that they were able to run with all the stress of the move and just enjoy the magic of their day.

 Please visit Laurens blog to see more pictures of this beautiful wedding:

A bright summer wedding at Apalloni winery

This wedding was so bright and cheery. It was such a perfect day - sunny - with a warm breeze to cool the meadow setting. Apalloni winery is a treat for the eyes as well as the palete....and this couple put together an amazing team of vendors to pull together their day. Being that the bride is a designer - you can see why so many details came together perfectly. Adam Berger from Tabla catered the dinner. Salt and straw brought out their sweet ice cream cart. And of course Lavish put on the finishing touches with bright blooms in an eclectic gathering hand painted tins, bottles and milk jars.


Peaches and pickles and plums - oh my!

The veggies have finally arrived in full force and I have more green beans and cucumbers than I know what to do with - so my sister, niece, mother and grandmother came for the weekend and we canned and pickled and laughed for 2 days straight. So much fun!

Amelia Ann Photography

These beautiful images just came in from the supremely talented Amelia Ann. I just love the soft filtered light coming through the trees. And the mossy leaf littered forest floor gives me goose bumps - it's so romantic. What am I doing in the office - I need to get out for a tromp in the woods....

The woods

This wedding at Timberline Lodge was all moss and woodsey with mushrooms ferns and all sorts of lovely twiggy elements. For the bridal bouquet we used a mix of lush orchids along with maidenhair fern and soft golden gloriosa lilies. Even the cake was decorated with lichen covered branches and tiny mushrooms from the farmers market. Centerpieces were a mix of apothocary jars filled with wildflowers, vine maple and native ferns. We also filled french cloches with mosses and mushrooms....

Bon Voyage....

We had a few orchid blossoms left over from a busy weekend of weddings so we made a little raft and floated them down the river to the sea....
