This bride and her mama were two of my favorite people to work with!  She LOVED babies breathe which completely went with her choice of wedding theme, rustic.  We custom built the wine barrel arch by cutting out a whole in the top of each barrel and placing a 4×4 in each one.  The lace drape used, was actually one of my moms old table clothes…..who would have known LOL.  I loved that we splashed in some pops of pink with the roses, and hanging amaranthus continues to be one of my all time favorites in a bouquet.  The tiny pink accents inside her bouquet, are actually pink babies breathe!  The aisles were lined with wood plaques that had different love quotes on each one.  It was adorable!

They exchanged personalized vows and had a very creative sand ceremony.  Love was definitely in the air that day!

Here are some more ceremony pics!

The reception took place in the ball room at Los Verdes Golf Course.  The bride and her mother approached me a few weeks before the wedding with a concern for the plain wall behind the sweetheart table.  So, I designed and custom built a wood paneled back drop for them, complete with their own initials.  To go along with the rustic theme, we switched up the centerpieces on the tables which made the room so much more eye catching.


“I hired Desiree to do all of my flowers and decor, and she did an amazing job! She was very professional, creative, and receptive to all of our needs and wants. We did a rustic themed wedding and everything came out beautiful. We received tons of compliments on all of the decor and flowers.”  – The Bride


“Desiree was highly recommended to us for my daughter’s wedding as a Florist. From our first meeting with Desiree, I knew she would be perfect to work with. We told her what our ideas were and she worked with them. She showed us several options. She had beautiful ideas for our Rustic Chic theme for both the ceremony and the reception. Everytime I had a question, I was able to email, text or call Desiree with no problem. She was always available for me. Everything Desiree did for us came out beautiful. We had so many wonderful compliments. Of all the vendors that I had to deal with, Desiree, by far, was the easiest and my favorite. I will be using her again.” – Mother of the Bride
