Bouquet Breakdown: Al Fresco Wedding in Santa Ynez

This bouquet had me at Hellebores. For when it comes to wedding day perfection, Mindy Rice knows the exact recipe for a standout celebration. Proving this theory is a dreamy peach bouquet that has managed to steal our wedding loving hearts time and time again. Packing a powerful amount of pretty into one lil’ handful of heaven, we’ve got the entire bouquet breakdown below!

Al Fresco Wedding in Santa Ynez

  • 6 stems of Hellebores
  • 7 stems of Gardenias with buds
  • 10 stems of Gardenia Foliage
  • 12 stems white Tweedia
  • 5 stems Green Privet Berries
  • 10 stems of white Nerine Lilies
  • 12 Heritage Roses
  • 8 Fair Bianca Roses
  • 10 Classic Woman Roses
  • 12 White Ranunculus

From Mindy RiceSierra and Chase had a pretty clear vision of what they wanted their wedding to not only LOOK like, yet more importantly, what they wanted it to FEEL like. Luxurious flowers in blush, apricot and sage tones were high on their list, along with the playful addition of fresh peaches and a stunning, taupe Alencon lace.

When it came to designing her bouquet, I wanted to keep it rather traditional in shape yet with a soft romantic drape. Sierra’s beautiful Ines Di Santo, Lace gown also had a very timeless silhouette, allowing me to use textures and flower in a variety of bloom stages without giving you that overly detailed feeling.

Santa Ynez has a light afternoon breeze that, like clock work, sweeps through the valley right when the bride walks down the aisle! Yards and Yards of bias, silk ribbon drifted beautifully around her she emerged from the stone villa, an image that most definitely left a mark on her friends,family and most importantly… her husband.

Al Fresco

From Jana Williams PhotographyLindsay and Adam were married at the Four Seasons in Beverly Hills. Lindsay loves Fall and really wanted to bring that wonderfully romantic and whimsical feel of the season to her and Adam’s special day. She transformed the space with warm hues, autumn leaves and woodsy textures. It was perfect.

In planning her big day, it was very important to honor the memory of her grandmother who she was very close to. She sewed into the heart of her stunning Vera Wang gown, a piece of her grandmother’s wedding dress and used another piece of fabric as the cover of her sign-in book. She also accented her bouquet with the colorful floral fabric so that she was carrying her both in her heart and in her hands as she descended the aisle to join and wed her love.
