I am head over heels for Rachel and Rogers vintage-inspired wedding.

Plus, with the backdrop of CJ’s Off the Square acting like an enchanted garden, I just can’t get enough of these photos! While you’re gazing at Rachel + Roger’s fabulous wedding, don’t miss the cameo of our Moroccan Wine Labels too! Be inspired, enjoy!

Amanda + Matt: In the Garden and Under the Sea

With most of us off work tomorrow for Good Friday and Easter almost here, I thought I would share a special little treat with all our readers – an extra real wedding! Introducing Amanda + Matt, who became man and wife on January 2nd, 2013 at fabulous Lake Las Vegas! With nods to both beach and garden themes to compliment their venue, they tied it all together with a stunning deep blue hue throughout creating a wedding design that was totally unique! I especially love Amanda’s dress with it’s gorgeous train and her messy yet sophisticated fishtail braid that makes her look like a modern mermaid. Congratulations you two!

Nature’s Whimsy

Working with Wildflowers

The wonderful thing about wildflowers is that they don’t appear overly structured and formal. They immediately contribute to a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere.

Beautiful Bachelor's Buttons Bouquet

Bachelor’s Buttons are the perfect flower for any ‘wildflower’ creations – the great thing about them is that they are incredibly easy to grow!

If you’re having a DIY summer wedding it would be a simple task to plant enough of them to decorate your entire event. They are hardy, beautiful and can be found in a plethora of pink, blue, purple and white shades. You don’t need to make full bouquets as the wildflower style is a lot more sparse.
