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!
Katie & Tommy…. these two just stole my heart! What a wonderful, fun and exciting couple! I am so excited to be sharing this beautiful wedding from July 2012. I had the pleasure of working with Heather Prettyman Photography and The Flower Farm Inn! What could be better! I loved the colors Katie & Tommy chose for their big day. A romantic mix of seasonal Summertime flowers, gorgeous garden roses, dahlias, and sunflowers. Friends and family helped with some wonderful handmade details for the mason jars, and place settings. I love when the day comes and see all their dreams come true! Best Wishes to Katie & Tommy!
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

Soft & Romantic in Gold Country~Imperial Hotel, Amador City, CA-Wedding-Flowers-Folsom-Placerville-Gold Country
What can I say about Andrea and Kevin…. Just Perfect in every way!! They chose an intimate gathering of family and close friends to share their special day. The Imperial Hotel in Amador City, CA was the setting for the vintage, romantic feeling they wanted. A beautiful rustic hotel, nestled in the Gold Country foothills. Andrea came to me knowing what she wanted, soft, vintage pastels and “FLUFFY”! I think I succeeded! I gave her sweet smelling garden roses, hydrangea, ranunculus, dusty miller, spray rose. All the elements of a romantic beauty, just like my bride Andrea.
The photos were taken by Eleakis & Elder Photography are just stunning and capture every moment of the day! Love them all!

Are you “Pinning” your wedding ideas? Pinterest is such a great source for brides to pull all their ideas together! These boards tell the story of your perfect day, and helps your Floral Designer, Planner, Venue, etc…help to bring it all together! It is a great tool for us designers as well, besides being able to see our own work, you can get an idea of “who” your vendor is. Their likes, loves, what inspires them. I have to say… it is a bit “addicting” and don’t pin when you are hungry! You will end up making some fantastic recipe and regret it later! Yummy! Happy Pinning!!
Fall in the Sierra Foothills is the most gorgeous time of year. The changing colors, and cool crisp air was the perfect venue for Lynzie and Tyler. They held their wedding at a private residence with the most beautiful sprawling grounds. Lynzie knew she wanted something classic, with a modern freshness. Her bouquet was a mix of calla, scabiosa, garden spray rose, hydrangea, freesia and fun textures, like “bunny tail”. The bridesmaids were fresh green hydrangea, red dahlia, spray rose and scabiosa. I loved how the colors played off all the natural greens. Congrats again to Lynzie and Tyler! Thanks for choosing The Posh Posey!

I am so excited to share this beautiful backyard wedding of Yvette & Pat. This fabulous couple shared their love for each other in this intimate, backyard setting. They chose lush, colorful blooms that were perfect for the enchanted garden feel they wanted. Urns overflowing with hydrangea, orchids, garden roses, dahlias, hanging amaranthus, and curly willow created a natural arch for the couple heart felt nuptials. They share eight grandchildren together, who were a special part of the day. The flower girls carried adorable floral fairy wands, sooo cute! Yvette’s bouquet was a simple, elegant design of mini callas, cymbidium orchids, and a wisp of hanging amaranthus. The natural stone aisle was lined with floating orchids and candles. I loved this wedding,it was love in it’s truest form. Intimate, heartfelt, and simply Blissful! Congrats again to Yvette & Pat!

Allison & Brad’s wedding day was nothing but spectaular! The outdoor ceremony was simply beautiful, the blue waters of Lake Tahoe sparkling behind as a back drop. Allison let her hubby to be choose the color “blue” for the wedding, and it went perfect with the lush greens and crystal clear blue waters. Allisons’s bouquet consisted of hydrangea, vendela roses, cymbidium orchids, dendrobium orchids, touches of tweedia and curly willow loops. It was important Allison had orchids, because Brad proposed to her in Hawaii. I loved Allison’s sentimental touches. A dear friend of the family made a custom “stump” cake stand, and placecard holders. Allison & Brad seemed to truly enjoy every moment of the day! Congrats! To Mr. & Mrs. Mayer!

Can I just start by saying Kristen & Andy’s wedding was absolutely stunning! Everything from the ceremony to the beautiful reception at Monte Verde Inn, in Foresthill, CA. Kristen has been consulting with me since the beginning of her engagement, a year and a half ago! She wanted “Fluffy” and romantic “Vintage Glam”. It was all about the colors and choosing the perfect flowers. Her bouquet consisted of Peony, English garden roses, schneeball hydrangea from Holland, and garden spray rose. She accented her bouquet with a gorgeous locket that held a dear picture of her late Grandfather. The palette of taupe’s, antique pinks, and ivory with splashes of soft peachy pinks, was simply beautiful against the bridesmaids dresses. Just perfect for the “vintage glam” feel! When I design a wedding my first thought is the brides bouquet. It is the most important and the most meaningful to me, and this one was especially dear to my heart.
A great big thank you to Kristen & Andy for entrusting The Posh Posey to create the most important flowers of their lives!
