If the rehearsal dinner consists of beautiful centerpieces, hot dogs, champagne and homemade ice cream sandwiches, the wedding is guaranteed to be amazing! Last Saturday at Cornerstone Gardens, Sonoma Cindy & Ethan were married (finally!) as guests looked on shaded from the California sun by orange parasols. Cornerstone Gardens is a photographers dream which I’m sure was why Cindy, a photojournalist, chose the location. Photo op after photo op with gardens designed by famous landscape architects and blooms galore. Guests enjoyed iced lemonade infused with lavender, bean bag chairs at the kids table, the hilarious Special Edition of “The Union” at the reception table and dancing into the wee hours in the big red barn. Congratulations Cindy and Ethan!

I was absolutely thrilled to design the flowers for Melanie’s baby shower, especially when I saw the fabulous pink tiered glass compote she wanted me to use. Melanie designs and produces the most gorgeous pillows and as you can see, her attention to detail is meticulous. When asked to host a shower, most people would whip up some food, throw a few flowers in a vase and call it good. Not Melanie. She traveled far and wide to acquire all the pieces she wanted for her sister-in-law’s baby shower. From spray painting a vintage baby carriage to convincing a bakery to make her pink bread for the tea sandwiches, no thought or expense was spared. To see more details of Melanie’s baby shower decor, check out her blog post over on Plum Cushion.
