Silvia and Sam, Part 1
Silvia and Sam got married at the lovely UC Berkeley Botanical Garden back in early August. Sorry it took me so long to share the photos — camera issues are the bane of my existence. Anyway, I hope to have the pro photos to share pretty soon as well. Our succulent composition genius, Jared Crawford, did some gorgeous potted succulent gardens for a bunch of the centerpieces, and the rest were my own designs of succulents mixed with cut flowers. Silvia and Sam gave away the potted gardens to their bridesmaids and groomsmen as thank-you gifts.
Dark eggplant dahlias contrasting with soft silvery foliage… lambs’ ear, dusty miller, and leucadendron… with wacky otherworldy nigella and metallic purple viburnum berries. Oh, and this beautiful blooming mint — you can’t see it here, but it pops up in a few of the other photos.
The head wreath looked so cute on their flower girl, with her little ponytail poking up over the top of it. I cut the leucadendron for the wreath from my own garden.
A family member had made some burlap table runners for their reception, so we did little burlap cuffs on the bouquets to match.
Here’s just one example of Jared’s amazing work for this project. Hopefully we’ll have pics of the rest of them soon! Love the table numbers too, made from the GGNRA artwork.
