Bright Local G&G Jewels at the Brazil Room

A few weeks ago Gorgeous and Green provided the bright and lovely floral decor for a wedding at the Brazil Room at Tilden Park in Berkeley.  The building there is beautifully set amongst rolling green hills, and the building is made with a lot of dark wood, so I wanted to keep the floral decor bright and colorful. The flowers were locally grown in half moon bay and Petaluma, and many were organically grown in Oakland too!  We used a lot of spring flowers including anemones, ranunculus, leptopermum, vibernum, icelandic poppies, scabiosa, callas and sweet peas. Below are a few pictures of the table designs, all taken from my phone, so I apologize ahead of time.  Although they aren't the best pics, they show the lovely colors!  I hope to post some of the photographer's pics on my blog as some point in the future, there was a lovely decorate Chuppah too, and many other details.

Amethyst, Rasberry and a Green Wedding

Earlier this year Gorgeous and Green helped a bride and her savvy friends decorate a sustainable wedding at the Brazil Room in Tilden Park.  They had a small budget, so many of the sustainable elements were also budget friendly as well. She chose a floral print dress for the bridesmaids that they thought they could wear again.  An important thing to think about when you are choosing dresses.

The colors were dark jewel tones in the purples, pinks and blues.  I used a lot of local scabiosa and amaranth, as well as local anemones, dahlias and celosia.

She provided a collection of found vases for us to use as her centerpieces, and each arrangement consisted of a trio of vases artistically filled with blooms, ferns and branches.  Most of the vases were salvaged or reused and then reused again when she invited guests to take them home.  The arranged centerpieces were all different, and I loved how they turned out.  I only have a few pics to share, but you get the idea:

A good friend of the bride made some paper flowers to use in the decor and I attached those to a fern garland I lined the aisle with.

Even the boutonnieres were delicate jewels with both local scabiosa flowers and pods.

local and seasonal

Just a quick post to show you some colorful photos of some bouquets I created for a wedding last year.  Love the dark purples and the seasonal amaranth.  Local kale, gerberas, amaranth, stock, local hydrangea and eucalyptus.  Guess what time of year it was... Photos by Cara Mia Photography.
