Welcome Dinner at Baldwin Gallery in Aspen

Courtney and Shawn had an incredibly beautiful destination wedding in Aspen, and since all of their family and friends were joining them from around the country, they included their guests in a Welcome Dinner the night before the wedding and a Sunday Brunch the morning following the wedding. It was such an honor for me to design the florals for all three different events and get to see the guests enjoying each of them. For the Welcome Dinner at Baldwin Gallery in downtown Aspen, we chose to compliment the white space and use modern lines and bright colors to create floral art in the midst of the other beautiful modern art installations on display throughout the gallery. There were so many personal touches, like mini-Moscow Mule favors for all the guests to remember the signature drink of the evening, or late-night milk and cookies. Thoughtful details make all the difference and this entire weekend was chock-full of them!

Wedding at Hummingbird Nest Ranch

Jana and Michael's wedding at Hummingbird Nest Ranch in Simi Valley was an absolute stunner. They rented out the venue for a full weekend and hosted multiple events for their guests, including the Welcome Dinner and Sunday Brunch, which I designed for as well. I love these destination get-aways, which become beautiful and memorable vacations for the close family and friends of the happy couple. Everything about this gorgeous evening feels romantic, elegant, classic and timeless, exactly as it should! From the letterpressed paper goods to the crisp linen tablecloths and runners to the exquisite French grosgrain ribbon I sourced for the bouquets and boutonnieres, every single detail was thoughtful and flawlessly executed.
