Katie + Chris

How gorgeous is this couple?!  I had the pleasure of doing Katie and Chris’s wedding flowers last fall after meeting her through our mutual friend Tiffany.  After anxiously awaiting the pictures from their big day (my camera was out of battery day of – worst luck ever!), Katie passed these on to me and I was too excited to wait for another Friday to come for a Friday Flowers post.

Now on to the love story!  The perfect pair met while she was Coxswain on the Long Beach State Crew Team and he was her coach – adorable!  The husband-and-wife-to-be were friends for about 4 years before their romance blossomed and now they both work for Los Alamitos schools – she is a speech language pathologist and he works for the auxiliary department.  For their Dana Point nuptials, Katie wanted to stick with a laid back, rustic, nautical, beachy feel (L-O-V-E) and wanted a fairly simple color palate of white blooms and yellow Billy Balls… one of my favorite combos.  Lucky for me, the bride was just as fun as her style and working with Katie and Chris was an absolute delight :-)

    OH Megan…thank you for being so wonderful to work with and making my flower dreams come true. xoxo. The white and yellow gave my fav navy blue life. I continue to try to recreate what you did for us in my mason jars at home now but it never quite turns out the same. You are so talented! I hope to see you soon.

      Thanks, Katie!!! It was such a pleasure working with you guys. You had such a great vision in your mind of how you wanted everything to look… it was a blast helping to make it come to life :-) I’ll have to give you a little tutorial one of these days!

    I saw your comment on another blog and decided to stop by for some designing, wining, and dining. And boy, do I love these pictures. The white on blue is gorgeous, and now I desperately want to get married by a cliff so I can recreate that third photo.

    Hey right by my house! We got married at The Chart House restaurant just on that cliff :) What beautiful colors she chose. I am obsessed with navy! So pretty. Great work :)
