|Woodland bouquet details - cymbidium orchid, raspberries, dahlia, spray roses, hypericum berry, and maidenhair fern|
|Blue thistle, dahlias, spray roses, raspberries, and callas were details in her woodland wedding bouquet for her ceremony at Nestldown in Los Gatos|
I worked with Ashley for a year on her bouquet....it started out as peach roses and safari sunset with hypericum berries, to emerge into a wonderful woodland bouquet. Ashley gave me the freedom to create something beautiful....sometimes I can't be sure of what is at market, and I don't know until I actually order and then pick up the flowers. She even decided to have me add some peach tulle, which you can see under the dahlia above, as a nod to her many years of ballet lessons.

I love this sweet photo of Ashley's dad helping put her train out...and I don't understand how Ashley walked down those many, steep stairs in heels!
|Lovely bride at lovely Nestldown!|
Here's the lovely arbor and our lovely wedding couple...there's a pond with a fountain behind them, in full sunlight. Guests sat in a lovely shaded woodland clearing.

On to the reception! Ashley developed her ideas for the reception with me over the year....she pretty much knew what she wanted, and I made suggestions on flowers and based on her thoughts and inspiration photos, I was able to recommend and carry out what she wanted for her tables and cake pedestal.

|Submerged wedding centerpieces of blue delphinium with floating candle; callas, and a ball candle with table number, all on a stained stump. Not only were rose petals strewn about, but also hypericum berries, to add to the woodland feel.|
|I just love this ball candle in a short cylinder, with a wood table number...perfect!|
|There were lovely vegetarian appetizers at each table, for after the cocktail hour.|
