lush centerpieces with vintage goods for a Cornerstone Wedding by Gorgeous and Green

Gorgeous and Green Wedding at Cornerstone Gardens Sonoma

We've been busy at Gorgeous and Green with weddings, so I apologize up front for being behind on my posts!  But, it does mean I have tons and tons of pics to share from events and designs we've been working on! Here's a few pictures from a wedding Gorgeous and Green provided floral decor for at Cornerstone Gardens in Sonoma in May (we worked with the coordinator Vera of Va de Vie Events)  It was a wonderfully hot day. Luckily the flowers made it through the warm weather as we still had lots of late spring flowers and early summer flowers blooming in May. The colors were yellows and oranges with some pewter/grey accents, and lots of greens.  We used a lot of locally grown icelandic poppies, crespedia, ranunculus,  dusty miller and succulents.  Here's a pic of the tent and some of the tablescapes.

Tent at Cornerstone Sonoma County

 We used a lot of my vintage silver and etched glass from the rental collection for the containers.  Very sweet.

Gorgeous and Green Vintage California Style

Here's a couple of pics from a Chicago couple who tied the knot here in the East Bay.  They came all the way to California for a vintage style impromptu wedding with Gorgeous and Green decor that included local succulents, kale and crespedia.  The photographer was Rebecca Wilkowski Photography, a green photographer here in the Bay Area.  (We're both green certified businesses and happen to be friends too!)

Succulents in wedding decor have been a big deal the past few years, and airplants are also becoming popular.  Luckily we carry many airplants here at the boutique, and we often have succulents too! In Green, Beauty and Health, G&G

My favorite recycled things

A Wintery and Warm Necklace

I happened across this necklace from Becklaces on Etsy while I was looking around for recycled and reused things.  It has a cool recycled story (it includes yarn from a bag handle!) , and of course it's hand made.  I just love it when recycling looks this good.   The necklace would look so warm and cozy around a bride's neck for her winter wedding.  I love the fuzziness of the rosettes and the delicate look of the pearls and chain. creme bouquet necklace With winter on it's way, who wouldn't want to cuddle up in such an adorable necklace?  And did I mention it's recycled?
