Floral Love: Succulents, Pt. 1 (Bouquets)

We return to our Floral Love series with a bang — with versatile and pretty succulents. It would have been easy to incorporate succulent centerpieces, boutonnieres, favors, etc. into one post, but we found so much inspiration in just the bouquets that we had to make it a two-parter. It’s no wonder that succulents are a popular choice of florals in California. According to MarthaStewart.com, succulents are “plants that store their water in their stems, leaves, and roots, causing their ‘succulence.’ Succulents have evolved in the desert and need direct sunlight.” Succulents are easy going, too. You need only to water them every 10 days to 2 weeks, they require minimal fertilization, and are easy and sturdy to work with. Enjoy the post!     Credits: 1 Brett Heidebrecht / Malakanoff Nursery (via) 2 NK Photography (via) 3 Ampersand Wedding Photography / Village Green Florist (via) 4 Nancy Neil (via) […]

Color Inspiration: Navy Blue & Yellow

Navy and yellow as a color combination is chic, modern and seasonless. Put plainly, these colors combined are a breath of fresh air. Infusing your wedding’s theme with yellow can offer a nautical affair a refreshing burst of energy. Conversely, injecting deep blue into a prominently-yellow theme can offer contrast and classic appeal. To make this palette work any time of year, simply make your prominent color choice depending on the season: lemon for spring and summer, navy for fall and winter. Spend some time to soak up the effect of these partnered colors; you may fall under its spell as we did. Enjoy!
