Anessa is a local musician by night was so excited to marry her future wife Turquoise in a beautiful Mexican get away with their closest friends and family. When COVID forced them to cancel their plans Anessa reach out about a home wedding. Anessa shared how that "Turq" was particularly sad to lose the beautiful tropical ascetic of Mexico and wanted to make sure that Turquoise was blown away by the flowers. we set out to create a design that made sure they didn’t feel like they were losing that ascetic they so much loved.

Anessa also expressed a desire to make the wedding fun and less traditional, in keeping with their personalities, and suggested adding a “pop of color” but wasn’t sure what. We worked with Lovehaus to bring up the neutral palette with a pop if fresh green and coral, evoking that tropical vibe.
It became my mission to find a way to infuse the wedding with amazing local spring blooms mixed with unique textures and florals that were inspired by the tropical wedding they were planning.
For florals we used amazing seasonal coral peony for that pop of color and green orchids to pay a nod to the tropical inspiration, we mixed in giant local allium, white campanula, fox glove and texture grasses with dried fan palms, coral sweet pea, draping green amaranthus and neutral roses.
We also knew we had to be flexible in the ceremony design because of the weather considerations of a home wedding. Day of, the ceremony was moved indoors and we chose the fireplace as the focal.
We selected the best of the season when it came to the flowers. Anessa’s bouquet was sweet and lush, filled with peonies, lisianthus, roses and tropical with local blooms.
We added decor moments in the architecture of their amazing 1920’s craftsman style home, which they’re so proud of and to complement the Lovehaus decor and the adorable Whipped Bakeshop cake.
