Laura and Chris got Married on August 13th, 2011 at The Estancia Hotel in La Jolla. From the minute that Laura told me she was getting married she knew what the vision of her wedding would be. She had a Whimsical and Vintage style that she wanted to capture. I was luck enough to know just the right florist to help implement Laura’s design dreams. Melissa Barrad my partner took on the challenge. Together they created a whirlwind of manzanita branches, hanging candles, lanterns, chalkboard table signs, succulents, mason jars, burlap overlays and much much more. The Estancia was a perfect location for this Vintage masterpiece. Soft greens and pale ivory color splashed across every table. Amber uplighting created the illision of being surrounded by 1000 glowing candles. It was the perfect romantic setting. Knowing Laura and Chris personally made this wedding even more special for me.  I love that I got to be part of their special day.
