Our favorite way to brighten up a Monday? Pretty flowers, of course! And it doesn’t get much more cheerful than the tropical-inspired bouquets and centerpieces Twig Floral Design whipped up for Wendy and Mike’s playful California wedding. Special thanks to Lili Durkin for sharing the day with us! What follows is just a snippet of the pretty—be sure to check out our full gallery for the complete set of details!

Wendy and Mike met on Match.com! After ten months of dating, Mike proposed during Wendy’s birthday week. He planned a slew of fun surprises, including the Newport Harbor cruise where he officially popped the question. They said ‘I do’ at Pacific Grove’s famous Lover’s Point Park, which overlooks the Monterey Peninsula. Though it rained through most of their ceremony (oh no!), the clouds finally cleared up as the couple was saying their vows.

Lauren + Matthew: A Fun Fall Fête by Larsen’s Photography
Posted by Sarah Zlotnick. Filed under Real Weddings

Like purple and burlap? Then you’ll LOVE Matthew and Lauren’s vineyard wedding! This cheery celebration took place at the scenic Brutocao Cellars in Hopland, California, and we are absolutely smitten with the florals. From the bouquets to the centerpieces and back to the cake, the colorful combo of shades proves that fall wedding decor doesn’t have to be all moody reds and oranges. Thanks to Dandelion Floral for reminding us of that, and to Larsen’s Photography for sending over the pics!

How the couple met: Mutual friends invited Lauren to Matthew’s annual holiday party and the two quickly got to talking. After four years of dating, Mike surprised Lauren with a small box in Lake Tahoe. She originally thought it contained earrings, but once she realized he was proposing she made him get down on one knee in the middle of the street and ask for her hand the traditional way.

Lacey + Kevin: A Purely Elegant California Wedding by Kristeen La Brot Events
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

Lacey and Kevin’s love story began online, when she gave him a wink on match.com.  Since they’ve now landed in this lovely corner of the internet, you can guess their eventual first date was a good one!  Nearly two years later, Kevin proposed in Central Park, and they planned their purely elegant California wedding long-distance. The bride says, ‘Planning a California wedding from New York isn’t exactly stress-free, but with an amazing wedding planner and fabulous vendors, anything is possible!’ Kristeen LaBrot helped to ensure every beautiful detail of the gold, silver, and pastel-palette wedding was in place, while Toby Tucker captured everything from their happy tears to the classic décor elements in these crisp, vibrant photos.

Looking every bit the classic beauty in her Enzoani gown, the bride wore her hair neatly upswept and carried one gorgeous monochromatic bouquet designed by Enchanted Garden. One of Lacey’s favorite parts of the day was carving out some pre-ceremony time with Kevin.

The pair said vows and sealed their lifetime commitment at the Pepperdine Chapel, then hosted guests at a gorgeous banquet room with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking a lake for the reception.  The room was awash in the soft metallic and pastel palette, with crystal candle-holders peeking above dahlia and garden rose centerpieces.  The details were utterly romantic and photographed so beautifully in the sunlit room.  Of the design, Lacey says ‘I love the contrast of champagne and silver colors; and when you combine them with tall crystal candle holders and soft colored flowers: all I see is beauty.’ A bride with impeccable style!
