We booked the very talented Paula Rae of Rae Florae to make the bouquets, bouts, and aisle decor. I requested a lot of flowers that I originally thought would not be in season, but Paula made my day by saying we might be able to grab some that bloom late--including peonies! Our requested flower list included peonies, dahlias, ranunculus, anemones, and sweet peas.
For the centerpieces, my sister and I are going to do potted plants/flowers. Paula alerted me of this awesome non-profit that will deliver our flowers to hospitals, senior centers, hospice centers, homeless shelters, and rehabilitation centers. It is San Diego-based and called Blooms From The Heart. Now we don't have to worry if people will bring them home or not!
I fell in love with these yellow bridesmaid bouquets, and the awesome mismatched dresses! Aren't they great? I love the pop of color and hope our wedding is filled with such beautiful bright hues.
