A little about what's happening in our big flower world...

Winter Wonderful at Park Winters | Park Winters, Winters, CA

Stacy and Calvin have a love for life, and each other, that is contagious. 
As soon as Stacy reached out to us for design, we knew this was going to be one beautiful event. Her sweet, calm nature and classically romantic taste makes her not only easy to love, but a dream to design for.

Stacy and Calvin along with the assistance of the powerhouse ladies at Alluring Events & Design, selected clean, classic, and romantic decor for the event. Long linen runners with charcoal ticking stripes drawn across rustic farm tables and simple gold votives with a sprig of rosemary tied together the design. The flowers a soft, muted palette of blush pink and silver foliage paired with tiny accents of marsala and plum that popped in the overcast dimmed lighting. Each design included soft blooms with billowy petals such as ranunculus, hydrangeas, anemones, sweet pea, roses, and stock. Lush silvery eucalyptus garland with blush garden roses alternated placement throughout the dining room. We were just so in love with the overall design and feel of Stacy and Calvin's beautiful celebration of love.

Take a peek for yourself...

Rustic Celebration of Love at Chateau Montelena, Calistoga, CA

When Kelsey reached out to me and said their wedding was to be a held at the infamous Chateau Montelena, I screamed. This venue is one of my favorite wineries in the Napa Valley. My husband and I are members and frequent the location for its beauty as well as its delectable wine. Maybe you've seen the movie Bottle Shock, the story of Chateau Montelena putting Napa Valley on the wine map for its award winning Chardonnay? The location is nothing short of stunning. Even more, the venue is only open to family for weddings. My mind went...sweet bride, great style, down-home country couple, perfect private venue...um, yes, Major Score!

Kelsey and Kevin are avid nature lovers. Don't be put off by Kelsey's tiny frame and sweet smile, she can hunt and fish with the best of the boys. They wanted their wedding to be a reflection of the things they love; their close family, friends, & the great outdoors. Simple, classic, elegant, but not snooty, rustic, wispy, fresh from the land...just beautiful with a touch of nature's whimsy. Kelsey collected feathers from their hunting adventures for each floral design. The designs featured subtle earth-tones paired with soft ivory, white, and blush. Against the lush green backdrop of the Chateau, the flowers really popped. Just take a look for yourself at the images captured by the ever talented Mindy Aagard of Sweet + Marie Photography...

Pretty in Pink & Navy | Park Winters, CA

Jessie & Kenny were married at the beautiful Park Winters on a mid spring evening. The day was warm and sun filled, perfect for an outdoor wedding ceremony. With the styling and coordination of Alluring Events & Design, this was sure to be one gorgeous celebration.

Jessie requested floral designs in shades of pink and coral with accents of navy. They wanted their nuptials to reflect their personalities; sweet, classic, vibrant, and romantic. Jessie's bridal bouquet was filled with white peonies, ranunculas, veronica, lilac, lisianthus, stock, and silver hues from dusty miller and variegated pittosporum. The bridesmaids were adorned with vibrant pink and coral bouquets hand-tied in a navy and white striped ribbon we just adored! On the dining tables, wooden boxes and simple glass cylinders filled with collections of pink, coral, & white blooms and copper votives brightened the event barn.

Here's a little of the magic that happened on their wonderful wedding day...

Thank you Jessie & Kenny for selecting us as part of your vendor team! We love working with you and watching your vision come to reality! Best wishes on your forever journey together.

A huge round of applause to the ladies at Alluring Events & Design on planning another gorgeous celebration! We always love working with you. XX
