Protea Wedding Inspiration: Luz and Philippe Wiliamson
You KNOW how much we love protea farming! Well, we couldn’t be more excited to share some homegrown protea wedding inspiration with you. Mel and I got to be on both sides of the wedding fence this month when our friend Flor Franco’s daughter, Luz, tied the knot in a beautiful garden estate over-looking La Jolla shores. Flor said she wanted proteas for Luz’s wedding but when asked to design and create all the décor and accessories, we were thrilled. It’s not too often we get the opportunity to create the bouquets, boutonnieres, centerpieces, arch, flower girl accessories, garnish the cake and enjoy the flowers we grow while attending the wedding as guests.
Let’s just say that, for farmers who love proteas, we were in heaven and OMG… the arch, the cake, the bouquets! I just love the way this wedding combined the elements of soft and strong – protea, Serruria blushing bride, Brunia albiflora and vibrant pincushions mixed with the dreamiest of fabrics in hues of cream and teal, contrasting with colorful water carafes. For us, it was the perfect representation of the flowers we’re so passionate about growing!
Beauty was a huge hallmark of this wedding day, every detail from the scenic venue to the alluring décor was absolutely breathtaking.
