Gorgeous & Green Does California Tropical for Preservation Park Wedding
We had such an awesome time putting together a refined take on a tropical theme for Bonnie and Dylan’s nuptials at Preservation Park in Oakland.
The bridal party looked super smooth decked out in creamy tones, allowing the florals to add the drama. Think: Piña Colada vibes.
As Summer edged into Autumn, the couple bathed in the sun’s golden glow, surrounded by their loved ones. The classic Victorian elegance of Preservation Park sparkled with stunning structures dating to the 1870s.
The buildings in the park are former homes, which have been preserved and refurbished to accommodate nonprofits and small businesses with a focus on social and/or environmental justice. It’s a super special place to exchange vows with your loved one.
As always, all of our designs are done without any floral foam or plastics.
Without further ado — feast your eyes on more of the fabulous photos — taken by South and West Photo!

This week at Revival bar and kitchen, the flower arrangements Gorgeous and Green created included some bright protea and local berries. Here are a few pictures of the week's arrangements.
The host table has one yellow pincusion in a vintage candlewick drinking glass.
The Large French bucket in the back is stacked with bushy branches and some bright organic and local sunflowers.
The vintage vase (my favorite vase) has some pink protea and lovely local amaranth, organic bells of ireland and local branches and berries.
Look at a backyard wedding
The centerpiecesThe bride and groom had asked for a lot of green and also wanted to include elements like blue thistle and lots of eucalyptus and kangaroo paw to note their heritage. (The groom is from Australia, so the kangaroo paw and eucalyptus or "gum leaves", were a special notation for him)
The happy coupleThe bride and groom looked wonderful and they were a joy to work with. Cheers! G&G
