Rustic Wedding Centerpiece

Pale yellow and peach garden roses, orange ranunculus, yellow cockscomb, and rust colored coneflowers provide cheerful color to this riot of greens: jasmine, mint, figs, scented geranium, and fuzzy almonds make up the happy home in this centerpiece. If you could only smell it! So unruly…I love it–it feels like its bursting out of the vase!

What could be better than a whimsical engagement session among the lavender fields of San Ysidro Ranch? As the bride says, “Having seen those gorgeous lavender fields time and time again, I knew I wanted to shoot there. It did not disappoint. San Ysidro Ranch has to be one of the most beautiful places on Earth!” We couldn’t agree more. This lovely pair enjoyed taking their beautiful engagement photos and then continued their celebration by driving up the California coast, visiting Monterey, Sonoma and San Francisco. A perfect day!
