It's always such a joy being able to do different type of projects and collaborations with other vendors in the wedding industry. For this particular wedding, the couple had close friends photograph their special day, but no one to really focus on the incredible florals and details that the fabulous team from Studio Mondine put together for the event. I've had the pleasure of working with Invanka and Amanda in the past, so when they asked me if I'd come to a beautiful wedding on the Northern California coast and shoot their flowers for the day. I said...UMM YES! So scroll on for lots of amazing pastels and yummy textures, and some words from the girls on how they brought Quinn & Ando's vision to life!
I'm also thrilled to have these images featured over on the incredibly gorgeous wedding blog, Magnolia Rouge!
from the florists:
Quinn, a visual merchandiser for Club Monaco, and her fiancé, skateboard photographer Ando, shared with us their vision of wild, romantic flowers in a soft palette for their wedding at Sea Ranch Lodge. We immediately turned our eyes toward translating their unique individual styles through the details.

We wanted to keep the overall aesthetic soft and feminine, but juxtapose ruffly blooms with edgy, unexpected, and downright unusual details. Vines trailed above dinner tables and seemed to grow out of the deer skulls affixed above the dance floor. Other natural curiosities awaited below for guests to explore: wildcat skulls, geodes, and mounted butterflies in suspended animation under glass cloches.

Quinn’s bouquet featured luscious garden roses, paired them with wild and unusual ingredients: pale mineral blue clematis, spotted begonia, and pampas grass foraged a few hundred feet from the ceremony site. We wrapped her bouquet with inky hand-dyed silk ribbons and thick black leather.
