The Ritz-Carlton, Half Moon Bay, California

This was a beautiful wedding at The Ritz Half Moon Bay that I was a part of, the couple was very elegant and special! Credits Anna Kilbridge Photo and Ornamento Floral Design.

Landmark Vineyard, Sonoma, California

Kristin and Mark from Minnesota called me less than 4 weeks prior to their wedding at Landmark Vineyards and wanted some extra assistance, so I was happy to help the couple with a very chic and organic look for their wedding (you will notice the touches I added such as specialty linen and chairs, chargers, customized menus, lavendar sprigs in the menus along with calligraphy for the place cards). A fun evening, I love pulling everything together for the special couple! Kristin's daughters were so gorgeous as you will see and they acted as the "flower divas".

Landmark Vineyards is located north of Sonoma in Kenwood, Ca and is a true gem. The grand-daughter of John Deere owns Landmark Vineyards and they host beautiful weddings.

Private Estate, Napa, California

Here are a few photos from a small estate wedding in Napa from July (25 guests, small and sweet)! The groom Rick is a dentist in Napa and his lovely bride Kim is a nurse. It was 110 degrees, yes you could say a heat wave! I brought parasols and fans for the guests.

I came up with the lemon theme because during one of my scouting visits I saw a lemon tree and voila...the design fell in to place...everything from a tuscan lemon invite to lemons incorporated throughout the dessert.
