Revisiting our wedding flowers

Happy 5 year wedding anniversary to my husband, Jason! It's hard to believe that 5 years ago today we were married in La Jolla, surrounded by our closest friends and family. What an awesome day that was!

Below are some of my favorite pictures from the day. All photos are by the fabulous Suzanne Hansen Photography. Check out her amazing work here.

Here is a picture of my hair before the humid beach air messed it up(made my naturally curly hair super frizzy).

We chose to see eachother before the wedding, so we'd have good daylight for pictures. This picture was taken right after we saw eachother. I loved the back of my dress. The knot in the back is what sold me. It is an Elizabeth Filmore from The White Dress in Newport Beach.

This picture was taken in front of the Museum of Contemporary Art, where we had our reception. This picture just makes me laugh. Suzanne has always been able to get us to be silly.

The ceremony....quite possibly the most beautiful spot in all of San Diego.

I did my own flowers - I wouldn't have it any other way! How could I hire another florist (I'm too much of a control freak!)? I was very happy with the way my bouquet turned out. It's funny what you find inspiration from. Mine came from the tie we picked out for him to wear. I found a vintage broach at an antique store that I put in my bouquet that helped coordinate with my earrings.

This is perhaps one of my favorite pictures. This was taken in the cool is that mural behind us? I wish I could remember what Suzanne said to us to provoke these weird poses, but I also love how much it shows off everyone's outfits.

Instead of doing a seating assignment table, I did a tree. I used a manzanita branch and blinged it out with real crystal chandelier strands. It was really pretty the way it moved around. I had many brides use it since my wedding.

Since we had the reception at the Museum of Contemporary Art, I wanted to bring in a creative way of doing the actual table numbers. I have been a long-time fan of Bella Pilar art. You may have seen her line of greeting cards at Papyrus. I contacted her to do these table numbers, and she was so nice to do them for me. We matted them so they really looked like their own piece of art. I got the mini easels from Ikea, and stained them brown. I was so happy with how they turned out.

Since I was doing my own flowers, I couldn't do intricate centerpieces. I had chosen to do square tables, which usually requires multiple centerpeices. Since the museum has an amazing ceiling, I knew I wanted to do something with height. I chose simple, but beautiful dendrobium orchids. We also put a cherry blossom tree branch in the middle centerpiece. I strung crystals in between the 3 vases. At the bottom, we had square vases filled with Hot Princess pink roses and white hydrangea. How cool is that blue wall?

Here is a great picture of the room. You can see the back wall was a red tapestry....that bothered me at first (the museum changes up its walls every quarter). In the end, it added so many interesting photos. The head table was behind Marilyn Monroe!

What an amazing day that was. I really can't believe it was 5 years ago already. Hope you enjoyed the was fun for me to look at them again!
