A Sophisticated Succulent Wedding at Hotel Arista
I loved working with Lisa and her mom to plan the beautiful succulents & florals for her and Mark's wedding at Hotel Arista. Lisa totally reminded me of my sister Amy (in all good ways) as she is really smart, she has "art major glasses" and curly hair, and she was not your typical bride. Lisa was really open to awesome textures and succulents mixed in with flowers and just wanted a beautiful wedding that would not be like everyone else's. We achieved a look that was totally chic and unique and all of the wedding attendees loved it! Lisa's bouquet was easily one of my favorite bouquets EVER--so many beautiful textures--it was just so unexpected and such a work of art--I have never made one quite like it! I also enjoyed working with Davina at Hotel Arista--we've done a bunch of wedding there this year and all of them have been just beautiful...I can't wait until our next wedding there next month...should be another awesome one!
