Ceremony Magazine photo shoot

A Gorgeous and Green Styled shoot at the Garden

Yesterday Gorgeous and Green created a tablescape for a rustic English Garden styled wedding, and where did I choose to set it?  At the UC Berkeley Botanical Garden of course!  I love the location because it's so close to home, I'm super familiar because I've done a load of weddings and events here, and it's beautiful.  For local couples and anyone looking to throw a party, it's a great and fairly inexpensive place to have your event.  I chose to set the table in the Redwood Grove, and the setting was almost magical. Here's the magazine layout from the photographer, Brittany Waddell:

Mt Diablo for a Gorgeous and Green Wedding

This summer I provided the floral decor for a wedding at a ranch on Mt Diablo called Diablo Ranch, a rustic and very cow and cowboy location in the East Bay.

The bride really was the design force behind the tablescapes and style.  Gorgeous and Green's take on bright, natural, eclectic and exuberant plant and flower life was a great match.  With collected items from both her and my collection of vintage silver pieces and china, all the containers were reused vintage pieces that gave her tables a bohemian and bright version of Miss Havisham.  (something named right away during our conversation about the wedding since I'm a fan of the book: Great Expectations) I used locally grown flowers, a lot of dahlias, celosia, passion flower, scabiosa flowers, lupine, sweet william and other flowers.  The colors were a stunning mix of reds, pinks, oranges and plenty of greens.
