As a wedding designer, I’m often asked what is that I do. I’m not the florist, I’m not the calligrapher, I didn’t bake the cake. For us stylists, designing is about spending countless hours choosing the right fabrics, the right colors, the perfect plate, the ideal chandelier. Fussing over placement of a candle, or table layout. It’s about dreaming up a concept and sourcing all the pieces necessary to make it reality. It’s about working with extremely talented vendors who add layers to your vision, bringing it life in ways more beautiful than either of you could have ever imagined. I am so grateful to have had so many incredible clients in 2016 who believed in my ideas, and amazing vendors to help execute them. A heartfelt thank you to all my amazing clients, including Kim of @fluttermag whose wedding reception pictured here gave me the opportunity to create beauty alongside some of our industries finest.

#1 This entrancing setting by Joy Proctor Designs features graceful drapes in creamy hues and trailing vines and blooms.
#2 Instead of lush blossoms, Paolo Sebastian turns to delicate wildflowers for inspiration this season.
#3 For the minimalists at heart, this Viktor & Rolf number has a strong architectural silhouette that is softened by the sprinkling of flower appliques cascading down the skirt.
#4 Letterpress flowers are elegant. But this rice paper belly band with real dried petals offers an artisanal touch that’s a winner.
#5 Flower arches never really go out of style. Instead of a single hue, opt for different shades of the same colour for more visual interest.
#6 What’s trending right now: Trailing vines that lend wild beauty.
#7 These delectable goodies in pretty hues and embellished with sugared garden creatures and botanical motifs are gorgeous to have on your dessert table or as wedding favours.
We’ll be dreaming about this bright, colorful Santa Barbara wedding all the days of our lives! | Photography: @corbingurkin | Event Design, Creative Direction + Floral Design: @flowerwild | Event Coordination: @twineevents | Linens: @latavolalinen | Specialty Rentals: @foundrentals | Stationery: @ambermoondesign
