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
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.

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.
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!
