Modern Romantic California Wedding From Sweet Marie Designs

My thoughts after going through these stunning photos: “If I could replicate this wedding, I would. Every single detail. All of it. In a heartbeat.” Anyone else with me? I love the simplicity of the design of this gorgeous California wedding. It’s understated, classic, elegant and beautiful in every way. Not only are the florals perfection–obviously, since they were done by Alise of Sweet Marie Designs, one of our faves–but everything else, including the bride’s delicate and pretty gown and her bridesmaids’ amazing dresses that were designed by the bride and her sisters! Oh and we can’t leave out the navy floral d’orsay Jimmy Choos – flawless! Navy, white and gold were the primary colors of this elegant soirée, and each of the talented vendors created beautiful works of art that added wonderfully chic touches.

Floral Notes from Sweet Marie Designs:

Theme and style of European cottage with a beachy spin. Heather’s family is from England and she wanted to tie in her heritage into their California wedding. We used antique tea kettles with herbal greens, ivory blooms, and wispy vines to create a cozy cottage feel to the tables. Adding to the feeling of “home” we placed dark fruit, berries, and cabbage around and throughout the centerpieces placed on the tables upon a custom stained wood runner. Since their colors were Navy, white, and gold we made sure to use navy/grey center anemones and navy privet berry as accenting blooms. Creamy ivory dahlias, patience garden roses, alabaster garden roses, and ranunculus cascaded out of the tea pots with variegated ivy, chocolate geranium, and jasmine.
