A unique Coral and Peach bouquet by Gorgeous and Green

This summer I provided some floral pieces for a local wedding using local and organically grown flowers and blooms. Here is a picture of the beautiful bridal bouquet featuring local/organic grevillia from Oakland, local dahlias and local garden roses in peaches, coral, gold and brown tones. Romantic, interesting textures and beautiful!

Cal wedding flowers, tall trumpet vases by Gorgeous and Green

A Gorgeous and Green Wedding at CAL

This summer I did a last minute LARGE wedding at the Pauley Ballroom on the UC Berkeley campus.  There were 26 or so tables, each with their own tall trumpet vases filled with a flowing arrangement at the top.  We at Gorgeous and Green were busy getting all those flowers cleaned and arranged! As you may already know, I never use floral foam, so figuring out how to get these huge arrangements to work and look beautiful, took some experimentation, but alas, I did it.  And all with two weeks two plan and execute.

The arrangements were classic bouquets of lilies, roses and hydrangea with flowing orchids and ivy.  I also did some lovely wedding party bouquets and boutonnieres, but alas don't have any pics on my phone of those.

Succulent orange and mustart bridal bouquet by Gorgeous and Green

A Succulent and Dahlia wedding at Flora Grubb

Here are a few sneak photos from a wedding Gorgeous and Green participated in at Flora Grubb in San Francisco on July 30th.  (A more recent blog post has photographer's photos, these are all old iphone photos)

We created the table centerpieces, bouquets and boutonnieres as well as a large 4 foot wide arrangement that hung above the wedding party table.  Lots of local succulents and dahlias!  It was a grand affair with the planning help of Vera Devera of  Va de Vie Events.  Beautiful.

Repurposed wood drawer with local dahlias, scabiosa pods and succulents.  No floral foam was used, I have a secret trick that included more reusing....

Planted terrariums (one borrowed from Vera) are so interesting to look at and classy.

And the amazing hanging box...........

Cheers to the newlyweds, G&G
