I woke up this morning with two things on my mind. First I need a candle plan for a wedding at Padua in a few weeks. They don’t allow candles outside and I need a plan for some faux aisle candles that don’t look chewy. And secondly I need to make a few new photo books before next year so all my new brides aren’t looking at 2009 pictures. So as I am browsing through all my pictures it occurs to me that even though I have done weddings Padua Hills a dozen times I have never blogged one of our weddings there. Thanks to one of my absolute favorite photographers Erin Palos I actually have more than a few professional shots of weddings at Padua on my computer. So here is Katherine and Loren’s Padua wedding from July 2013.
A quick post of such a pretty, pretty pink wedding at The jones Victorian Estate a few weeks ago.

Wow it’s been a long time since I’ve blogged. This wedding is just so classic Flower Allie that I just had to share it. I feel like trends are changing so quickly right now and we will be sharing a lot more weddings where greenery and leaves are a lot more prominent in the coming months. This wedding though is just timeless and the details were just perfectly pulled together by Joyce of Joyce Kim weddings. I have never seen the ballroom at Trump National draped before and I just loved it! I also loved how perfectly the roses and the linen on the cake table pulled together….. And a tall centerpiece on crystal with ranunculus is also a thing of perfection in my mind…. and of course the bride; Gisela was absolutely beautiful too…..anyway I am off to lead my team as we head into a 5 wedding weekend so here are the photos.
Even though we are in Fullerton I feel like people don’t think of us enough when they are getting married or having their reception at Villa Del Sol. I was there again yesterday and everyone was really complimenting us on the florals and I must of heard 5 or 6 times ‘Oh Flower Allie your the ones who did the pomegranate wedding’. I don’t mind being known at all for doing a good pomegranate wedding. I love pomegranates and my husband and son spent an hour climbing up the steep hill across from our house while lugging a ladder to pick these. As a matter a fact when the uber creative bride Noreen first presented me with her ideas I knew I was the florist for her simply because I had loads of free pomegranates. So this is a Fullerton wedding complete with homegrown Fullerton fruits… I am so proud of this one it was such a great collaboration of ideas between Noreen, her husband Simon and myself and it is just beautifully photographed by Made By Juvenia.
If there is one thing we do a lot at Flower Allie it is blush and cream weddings but this was my first time doing the winter version of our signature light and fluffy style and I just love it. Angela gave me a budget and let me run with it. She just ask that we use some babies breath and fill up the large royal table. Angela was married overseas a few months ago and so we kept things pretty and simple but also warm, inviting and elegant. I have seen the Summit House look much more over done than her e(in fact of done many, many huge lavish weddings there) but I have never felt that the ballroom looked any more perfect than it did on this beautiful day at the end of December……..
