Amy & Sherwin via EPlove

The photographers EPlove just posted their pictures of Amy and Sherwin's wedding on their blog, and it was fun to remember that day and all the gorgeous details A & S put into their wedding. We snagged a few shots of the flowers we did for them to repost here, but check out EPlove's blog for all the rest!

WLF on the road!

I had the pleasure and honor to do the wedding flowers for my dear friends Ambur and James this last weekend in Sonora, CA. My wonderful husband helped pick up everything from the flower mart on the way out of town Friday and we got up to Sonora around 5pm. Stayed up late with the help of some wonderful friends, got up early enough to enjoy some downtime, and set up for the wedding. I love doing flowers for weddings that I am also a guest at, because you get to enjoy them so much longer!

Here are some photos of the set up:
Ambur loves yellow and blue and daisies and sunshine so we went with a yellow, white, and blue theme for the flowers. Lots of daisies of course, and some delphinium, thistles, and cornflower for the blue.
Bouquets in a bucket:

And on with the wedding photos!

Beautiful bride
The groom wore white! It's a long lived family tradition.
One of 27 table arrangements!

And two different bouts. I did 14 bouts and 4 corsages!

We had a wonderful time and were so happy to be a part of the celebration. Best wishes Ambur and James!

Congrats Amy & Sherwin!

Success! Here are some pictures of the arrangements on location at the gorgeous Tierra Rejada Ranch in Moorpark:

A&S's wedding

It's wedding season! Mandy and I are back and doing an awesome wedding for Amy and Sherwin.
24 centerpiece arrangements
8 aisle arrangements
5 bridesmaid bouquets
3 mini flower girl bouquets
1 bride's bouquet
7 corsages
15 boutonnieres

Enough talky-talky, let the pictures show you what We Like Flowers has been up to lately:

The colors are mainly in the light peaches, pinks, creamy whites, green, and grays. Just lovely.

Love these white berries! We also got peach coffee berries, hydrangeas, scabiosa pods, billy balls, carnations, lisianthus, roses, queen anne's lace, dusty miller, rice flowers, wax flower, statice, peonies and mums.

Another inclusion in our flower arsenal were succulents! I loved including these in the arrangements. They're so sculptural and cool, and hardy!

The bride collected most of the vessels for us, and were thrifted glass and crystal bowls. To add in some gold elements, we spray painted the insides of each bowl. I think they look beautiful, especially the cut crystal bowls, and the gold really complements the color palette of the wedding decor.

We used mason jars for the succulent aisle arrangements, and also sprayed those gold.

Here's a close-up of one of the centerpiece arrangements.

Ta-da!! 24 centerpieces. I'll post more pics when we get them set up on location!
