it’s friday! memorial day weekend! the official weekend to kick-off summertime! and I’m using more exclamation points than ever! :) {and I heard this old school DMB song on the way to the flower mart yesterday morning and it made me happy, so I’m sharing the happy with you today}.

I am so crazy excited for this weekend because it is the 3rd LLD event of the season, and I’m covering all the florals, design & planning for this one. C&C’s laid-back, beach-vibe wedding is taking place here in san francisco at a venue that is literally… a shell. a gorgeous shell with an amazing view, but a shell. so that means we have to bring everything in - from the long farm tables to the white wooden chairs to the wooden aisle to the to the to the… you get the picture! we’ve been planning away for C&C’s wedding since october and it’s hard to believe their day is finally here.

C&C had several family events lined up this week as their wedding is a bit of a “destination” event for most guests, and they asked me to create some flower arrangements. here are a few “behind the scenes” pics of the “studio” and final products. excuse the “in-house” pics, I decided to bring the florals home to work on them here rather than the studio this week.

we’re using mostly whites & beachy colors for C&C’s big day, but with pops of that gorgeous coral via peonies. no joke, I have about 100 peonies in buckets right now, that I’ve prepped and now are ready to go.

here are a few arrangements I put together for one of the family/rehearsal dinners.

I’ll be posting progress pics as time allows this weekend on instagram so you can see what we’re up to. thankfully I have a pretty awesome assistant helping out, so we’ll both be busy bees creating tablescapes and putting the finishing touches on the driftwood arch that I made this week thanks to the help of my trainer! I just can’t wait to see it all come together.

but as for now - it’s off I go. I have a 4:30am date with the flower mart tomorrow morning (it’s Thursday night as I write this!) to pick up the last of the blooms, but I hope you all have a safe and enjoyable memorial day weekend! see you back here next week!!
