digiorgio-robertson wedding

back on june 13th, we did a wedding at one of our favorite venues, the pleasant hill mansion at the governors club in brentwood. the wedding took place outside under the beautiful gazebo, and the celebration continued with the reception spread out in the amazing antebellum mansion, the sprawling tent connected to the side door, and out on the grass lawn. alyssa and jay wanted a southern affair infused with color and personality, so, as you can imagine, we had a lot of fun with their flowers!

loved the bride's organza pleated dress with rhinestone detail and the bridesmaids' hot pink dresses- we wanted those bouquets to pop!
for the ceremony, we did floral arrangements in giant iron containers on either side of the gazebo, which were joined together at the top by arches of lush eleagnus branches

and we hung lit chandeliers from the branches of the giant old trees on the lawn

it wasn't easy to keep the flowers in the adorable flower girl's hair, but this pic is worth it!

we dressed up the cake (made by a family friend) with dahlias, roses, orchids, hydrangeas, and calla lilies in vibrant colors

these hung on the sweet white picket fence at the back entrance to the porch

the food was phenomenal! the salmon with mango salsa
was an especially big hit.
our twisted iron bases make an appearance again on the tables on the lawn, along with votive candles, black chairs, and white linen tablecloths
did i mention we had fun with the flowers?!?
