Laura and David are public defenders in New York City who came out to Cherry Valley, California for their wedding at Highland Springs Resort. They were such a fun, laid-back couple, and I absolutely loved the experience of designing for them. My goal with the floral decor was to play to the natural setting and the spring season, so the flowers included lavender, clematis, fern, dusty miller, succulents, garden roses, peonies, sweet peas, ranunculus, spray roses and passion vine. Among the lovely, personal details in this wedding: a simple birch chuppah adorned with floral nosegays and green moss, tree stumps lining the aisle way covered with carpets of moss and mason jars full of romantic floral arrangements, cocktail tables treated with fresh green moss, candles in mason jars, and lots of fragrant dried lavender, a floral head-wreath of thistle, waxflower and statchy for Laura’s sister, Allison. The tented reception site held a mix of long feasting tables, square tables, and round tables. It felt very homey and relaxed, and I had such fun decorating each of the tables with assorted containers full of flowers, birdcages filled with moss and candles, birch tree slices, and little birdies that Laura had collected in the months leading up to the wedding. I am so grateful to have these beatiful pictures to look at… they bring back nothing but good memories. Laura and David, I love you two.  I wish you all the best in your married life. xoxo

  1. The florals are lovely, just lovely, Lauryl! And I really like the idea of the guests signing fabric squares to be made into a throw. Thanks for mentioning it to me a while back. I think that’s what we’ll do. It makes me warm and happy to think of cuddling on the couch, wrapped in the well-wishes of our friends and family!

  3. Can’t get over how gorgeous all the florals are! And that idea of writing guest greetings on fabric to be made into a quilt is so sweet!
