We’re BACK!! Sorry we have been gone so long!! Our 2017 goals are to get 2 blog posts up per month, and I am sticking to it!! We love sharing our beautiful weddings, our amazing couples and keeping you in the loop on what is new and exciting in the Wedding Flower Industry!
We are starting with a classic, because it never goes out of style! Are you a timeless, classic bride? This may be for you! Do you want to look back on your wedding photos in 50 years and not be able to tell what year you were married? Then you are a classic, timeless couple. Because believe me, my daughters look at my wedding photos and say “Mom, what the heck is with those bridesmaid’s dresses? So 80’s!!” Envision large puffy cap sleeves! Don’t get me wrong, I love trends, color and I believe whatever you are wanting for your big day, you should have!
So, let’s take a look at one of our favorite classics from 2016! We like to call it Blush & Fluff, such a pretty mix of Peony, Garden rose, Ranunculus, Spray rose, Hydrangea, in all shades of Blush, Ivory, Light Pinks. Photos via : Echo Media Photography
Fresh, clean beautiful Springtime in the Sierra foothills. Jennie and Jarred picked this gorgeous spot to say their “I dos!” The Grand Sierra Point, in Foresthill, CA is one of my most favorite places on earth to have a wedding ceremony. The views are just stunning and especially in the Spring. Everything is fresh, green and just waking up with color all around. Their reception followed at the amazing Forest House Lodge, in Foresthill, CA.

Faith & Darrin
A crisp Fall day, a gorgeous couple and stunning style! Faith & Darrin tied the knot at the Grand Sierra Pointe and partied all night at The Forest House Lodge, Foresthill, CA. Faith is a self proclaimed “A” personality! She knew what she wanted, but trusted me to take control! She knew I had her vision and she knew I was very detail oriented, which made her very comfortable! My favorite part was delivering her bouquet to her, tears of joy from both of us! She just looked stunning. The Grand Sierra Pointe looked gorgeous with the traditional Chuppah, and rustic elegant designs we used to deck it out! At the reception we used 3 different designs to add interest and dimension to the room. A Manzanita tree design with hanging Amerathus, Orchids, and dripping in crystals. A Lantern design with a small accent piece and then we repurposed the aisle designs for the other tables. Thank you Faith & Darrin for letting The Posh Posey be such a special part of your beautiful day.

October 12th, 2013
Jessica and Kevin shared their day surrounded by family and friends. Their gorgeous wedding took place on the Bride’s family property, located in Placerville, CA. Jessica knew exactly what she was wanting and had the help of many family members to pull it all together! Lucky Girl! One of the most special designs we created for them was on Jessica’s Grandmother’s spinning wheel. Her Grandmother passed not long ago and Jessica wanted to include her in a special way. We placed a beautiful, flowing floral design on the spinning wheel, that graced the ceremony site. Every detail was considered in this gorgeous wedding and it all came together perfectly! Yes, there are quite a few Flower Girl shots, because she is just so darn adorable! Congrats again to Jessica & Kevin!

Jen & Josh
The Flower Farm Inn, Loomis, CA
I’m so excited to share the “Very Berry”, Flower Farm Inn Wedding of Jen & Josh! This couple definitely had an idea in mind when they came to me. They wanted a Old World Botanical feel. They accented with antique “botanical” prints and other pieces of this era. They wanted to include all kinds of berries, fruits, pods, ferns anything with botanical interest. We softened the details with gorgeous flowers. Garden roses, peony, dahlia, hydrangea, and a color palette of berry, burgundy, creams, greens and a hint of rosey pinks. The accent of navy brides maids dresses was a perfect compliment. The Flower Farm Inn, Loomis , CA was the perfect back drop for their special day, with all the botanical goodness, this venue has it all! It was such a pleasure working with this amazingly sweet couple and help them bring their vision to life! Please enjoy these stunning images by Jenn Bartell Photography + Design.
Yes…it has been awhile! A very busy wedding season has happily held me hostage for a bit, but now it is time to share what The Posh Posey has been up to! We have been all over CA in 2013, from The Sierras to Napa Valley. Thank you to all my sweet 2013 couples, you have made this Season amazing! So, lets get the party started by sharing this beautiful Fall wedding in Napa Valley! Enjoy!

What an incredible Fall wedding amongst the gorgeous vines! Lauren and Jeff chose to start their wedded bliss at the beautiful Langtry Estate Vineyards, Middletown, CA. What a stunning property! These two lovebirds are just perfect in every way! They spent their day surrounded by Family and friends and they truly enjoyed every minute!
We chose a subtle Fall color palette, letting the natural outdoor colors of early Fall take center stage. The result was stunning! Cream, gold, plum, burgundy, antique purple with a hint of navy. The groom, being an avid fisherman made all the “flies” that were attached to the lapel flowers. He also is the owner/designer of Pladra, a custom flannel company based in San Francisco. He custom made the Pladra “bowties” all the men wore. All of the details came together perfectly, but nothing was more perfect then the love these two shared with everyone that day and always! Congratulations to Mr. & Mrs. Jeff and Lauren Ladra!

We loved this sweet couple, Karen & Steven! Soft blush, nude and champange were the colors of this vintage inspired wedding. The bride had a collection of antique teacups that were used as centerpieces on the guest tables. A collection of antique bottles we used with single stems on the place card table. The gorgeous cake from Karen’s Bakery was just perfect with the fresh dahlia and rose details. I’m so happy I was able to be a part of their special day! Thank you to Fiorillo Photography for the lovely photos!

I know, it’s been awhile! But, we have been busy getting lovely photos from this Summer’s weddings!
Here is one of our favorites from August, 2012. Madeline & Christopher chose a gorgeous palette of yellows and blues. This wedding was beautifully designed by Amy Wendell with 2 Chic Events & Design. I loved the details they incorporated! I actually never met with the Bride or Groom, but we consulted over the phone. I sent her a design board, and also spoke with Amy to get an idea of their theme. This goes to show you that even if you are too busy or out of town and unable to meet in person, it can turn out perfect! Choosing the right vendors who can work together to bring your ideas to life! Check out this adorable couple and the stunning photos by Chantel Elder with Eleakis & Elder Photography!
Do you love the scent of flowers? Most flowers have their own unique scent, some we love, and some we don’t! Our senses dance when we smell something so wonderful, it evokes a feeling, a memory and a moment in time.
I love this photo of my bride Kristen, from last July taking in the sweet smell of her “toss” Bouquet!
Choosing wedding flowers can be tough if you are sensitive to certain scents. Flowers for your guest tables is something else to take into consideration. A highly fragrant flower arrangement may be difficult for your guests to either enjoy their meal or they may be sensitive as well. Choosing flowers with less scent may be a better option. Or if you love a highly scented flower, you can always add just a “few” to your arrangements, so it is not too overpowering. Here is a wonderful list of some more commonly used wedding flowers and the categories which they fall under to help you decide what you may love or need to stay away from.
Heavy/Exotic Scented Flowers
Oriental lily, particularly Casablanca (pure white), Le Reve
(pale pink), & Stargazer (white edges with dark pink throat)
Aromatic Scented Flowers & Greens
Eucalyptus foliage, rub leaves for the full effect
Grape hyacinth (Muscari) = faint musk
Spicy/Peppery Scented Flowers
Florists’ broom (Genista)
Hypericum = spicy
Pink (Dianthus) = sweet clove
Sweet/Flowery Scented Flowers
Lily of the valley (Convallaria)
Rose, Garden Roses
Citrus Scented Flowers
Waxflower (Chamelaucium) = lemon and marzipan scent
Eucharis = delicate lemon curd scent
Myrtle = Okay, not technically a flower, but these greens have a wonderful
