What Makes a Style Work? the Jones Victorian Estate. What is your dream? (714) 343-1964

What makes a style work? It's easy!
It's incorporating something that you love. It's tying the elements together beautifully from the Wedding to the Reception.  It's about enjoying the process! It's about being you. 
Let me give you an example! This is Denise and Jeff's wedding. Their theme was all about bringing out the "green" in nature and surrounding themselves with that natural essence. 
 Here's Denise was her bouquet with just a touch of green in her bouquet! Thank you Flower Allie! They are both absolutely gorgeous!
 Her green accents didn't stop there! Her spectacular bracelet included green as did her Maid of Honor's dress!
 We didn't stop there! Here's the cake displayed on a real stump! Fresh fruit and flowers decorated the old fashioned frosting! Denise added a playful backdrop with multi-colored streamers. I tucked them under the base of the overhead light to create a ceiling of streamers as well.
We have lots and lots of old beautiful trees at the Estate so finding one that she liked was easy!

 The Bride and Groom's chairs had just the right touch!
Even the front door of the Estate was decorated with the Green element!!

Here's Denise's son and the Ring Bearer! He didn't carry the traditional ring pillow! He carried a bird's nest with the rings inside! Did you see his boutonniere? Nice! Thank you Flower Allie!
And the Centerpieces!! These were a blast to put together! We started with the burlap overlays and added a tree stump with moss and cute little features such as mini mushrooms and snails! All hand made! Then, we added clear, green and amber wine bottles. I saved the bottles from my past weddings and scrubbed the labels off! Waaalaa! Perfect for candles! Next, Amber votive candle holders, wooden "wafer" table numbers, an assortment of green vases filled with fresh cut greens and the seed pods finished the look! 
Guess what we did for the napkin?
We used brown linen napkins tied with twine and stuffed with fresh rosemary! Now, that is a GREEN look that is elegant and diversified... smells good too.

Green was the accent of the day and the bouquets beamed with it! Jeff's daughters and the Maid of Honor carried these gorgeous bouquets made by Flower Allie! Each of their dresses were different, all based on their own style!
The Guest Book Table was a feast for the eyes with a photo of the couple, the seating board, a plant box with a Kumquat tree (The tree was to young to bare fruit so we added tied real kumquats to the tree for color and texture!), her hand made invitation, woodsy pens in a "dirt" bowl made of whole grain rice, candles, tree stumps with mini mushrooms and tied it all together with a burlap table runner!

Their arch was a mix of branches! That's right, just branches. Actually, that's not completely true. We tucked in the branches a couple of bird's nests with blue eggs!  It was her "something" Blue!! 

 The invitation!  It's a sneak preview of what's to come! Here, Denise made the template for these wooden invitations. She did an amazing job with the artistry! Now, if you received this invitation, would you wonder what the wedding was going to be about?

What's your style? Tying all the details together can be so much fun!! Remember, it's not hard at all. I'm here to help!
