Sunflower Wedding with a Metal Twist! / Coloma Sacramento Placerville Lake Tahoe Wedding Flowers Florist

Sunflower and burgundy slight cascade with metal elements, angel hair vine, eucalyptus pods, pepperberry, and hypericum sheltered in lily grass
Aimee & Mark are married!  On Friday evening, as I was sitting under my oak trees designing Aimee & Mark's wedding, I was enjoying the rainbow and the virga - rain falling but not touching the ground - and the pink clouds and thought how lovely for Mark & Aimee, who had rented cottages at the American River Resort in Coloma, California.  This is a resort I know well, as my whitewater "family" works out of there.  The wedding day was quite warm, but cooler than the 104 degree temps of only a few days prior (only 88 degrees!!).  I delivered the bride's bouquet to Aimee in her cottage -- oh, what a beautiful bride!!! Her hair and make up were done, she was dressed, and just about ready to go to Marshall State Historic Park for photos (where gold was discovered that started the California gold rush - lots of great rustic photo ops!).  I went down to the resort's reception room, and met Kristen bride from September!  She and Aimee met on a wedding forum, and helped each other with day-of duties.  It was great to see Kristen again!  Kristen had a list from Aimee of which tables she wanted her "tall" and "short" centerpieces on, so I followed that, and everything was lovely....sunflowers, with a touch of burgundy (bridesmaids were in burgundy) and damask! 

Aimee just posted on my facebook: 

Thank you so much! Our flowers were gorgeous!!!! We received such personalized service, it was like working with friends. :)  everything was gorgeous! Mark and I both loved the metal elements. Thank you!!

Thanks Aimee!  I very much enjoyed working with you and designing your wedding!

It rained today in Coloma; and yesterday there were reports of thunderstorms at Lake Tahoe.  Remember, El Dorado County and Lake Tahoe destination brides - we are on the slopes and in the summit basin of the mighty Sierra Nevada range, and weather can be unsettled.  Have a rain plan!  Aimee & Mark married in the historic Emmanual Church in the State Park; so they were covered.

Enjoy the photos!
