This past March, I had the opportunity to create florals for Laurie Arons iconic, masterclass. It was an honor to be apart of the line up of incredible vendors that made for a memorable and beautiful few days in Big Sur. The inspiration for this shoot was the sea, but an elegant white, unassuming version. Spring couldn’t be a more perfect time for that inspiration with sweet pea, fritilaria, tulips, hellebore, kangaroo paw and more.. All of those elements pulled together felt like little sea plants and textures that reminded me of the sea foam washing up on the rocks.

Such an honor getting to create florals for Karlie, Josh and all of their friends in Wyoming last month! Creating this floating install over the dance floor was my favorite part, and loved how it came together. Tumbleweeds for installation mechanics forever and always. Planning by the incomparable Stefanie Cove and Co.

Couldn’t have loved this wedding more with Lynden Lane in Joshua Tree last October. The rich vibrant and velvety reds against the dry and muted desert landscape was a dream palette. Utilizing the unique landscape and sculptures on the property to make a unique entrance installation was a fun added element.

Looking at these photos are a bit bittersweet, as I was going through something emotionally and physically difficult at the time. I wrote a post about it on Instagram that I didn’t intend to share with the world, but with the many hands that came together to make this workshop so wonderful I felt the transparency was fair. Three days before the workshop at my routine 16 week pregnancy check up, they were unable to detect a heartbeat. With this being my second miscarriage in less than seven months, I was uncertain that I was going to be able to get through a workshop in my emotional state.

I was wrong, because thankfully I have some great, talented friends who stepped in to help support in every way they possibly could, and it was such an added bonus for us all to have so many talented designers included. Really was a beautiful display of how great the floral community is, and I’ll never forget that.

This group of students was so talented, so wonderful and gracious. We dove into the best spring blooms to create centerpieces and bouquets, and a beautiful white spring foam-less arch.

Special thanks to Max Gill, Sarah Winward and Jenn Sanchez for supporting, teaching and assisting.

Just some pretty iPhone shots by my pal Jenn Sanchez, who is the world’s greatest best friend and should probably take up stand up comedy, but she’s kind of too good at her day job to explore other career paths. Maybe someday though.
