I love unexpected color combos and this spring bouquet, with its mix of purple, red, and pink, definitely fits the bill. I wanted the colors of this bouquet to almost be a transition between the holiday colors of Valentine’s Day & Easter…
I layered two ribbons, a gauzy purple/red ribbon over soft lavender.
Deep red ranunculus were contrasted against dark purple sweet pea.
To create this bouquet you need:
-1 bunch purple clematis
-1 bunch purple hellebore
-1 bunch red ranunculus
-I bunch pink anenomes
-1 bunch dark purple sweet pea
Begin by placing 3 flowers in your hand and then adding more flowers, going around the bouqet to maintain a round shape. Finish by winding stretchy floral tape around your stems to keep them together. Then wrap lavender ribbon to cover the tape, and pin with a pearl headed pin to hold the ribbon in place. Then cut two lengths of ribbon, lavender and purple/red, and wrap around the bouquet and tie into a bow. And now you have a perfect spring bouquet!

This week I’m feeling inspired by deep fuchsia and bright reds and I’m in love with these two photos. On the rocks will (finally) be returning next week and I’m so excited to share some new libation ideas with you (you can see a sneak peek right here).
I’m prepping for a 12 (yes 12!) look bridal shoot which will be revealed March 29th so posting will probably be a bit sporadic next week as I run back and forth to LA to retrieve dresses, pick up flowers, and pull props.
In the meantime, here are some weekend links, enjoy!

I know I’m not the only one dying for spring time… I’d wear this flower power dress these insane gold bordered sandals, an orange and white hat, simple earrings and gold bangels. What’s your ideal spring time ensemble?

I love a simple, and modern wedding, and this one held at the Monastery in Montecito, with its citrus and succulents decor, and small guest count (just 45 guests!) is right up my alley.
The bride wore a classic strapless gown by Va Lena Valentina.
And carried a bouquet with succulents, dusty miller and ranunculus designed by Blue Magnolia.
The 3 bridesmaids wore simple purple dresses.
The groom looking dapper in a Jonathan Behr Bespoke suit.
The wedding was held in the garden of the Monastery, high above Santa Barbara and featured ocean views.
Instead of a formal sit down dinner, the couple chose to throw kind of a cocktail party, with tray passed appetizers and a buffet of goodies for guests to enjoy. Decor was kept relatively simple with bonsai and citrus trees taking the starring role.
The cake, by Christine Dahl, was decorated simply with buttermilk frosting and fresh citrus. Thank you to Patrick Moyer for sharing this simple, but stunning wedding with Santa Barbara Chic!
