Luxury Pastel Wedding Flowers at La Valencia in La Jolla, California
Sarah and Paul's wedding last December at La Valencia Hotel in La Jolla, CA was truly luxurious. We went all out for their ceremony arch and created a foam free, completely floral deconstructed arch. The arch was filled with roses, hydrangeas, snapdragons, delphinium and more, all in light pastel shades of lavender, blush, light blue and white. At first I thought pastels were an interesting choice for a winter wedding, but after hearing from their Mothers why they chose the color palette it just made it even more special.
While I was finishing the setup, Sarah's and Paul's Mothers came to admire the flowers. They were dressed in traditional Korean dresses and explained to me the tradition. Usually the Bride's Mother wears pink or lavender and the Groom's Mother wears light blue. Thus, they chose the flowers to match their Mother's dresses.
I absolutely love when our couples find ways to infuse family traditions and customs or ways to honor their family and loved ones in to their wedding day. Especially when we get to incorporate it in their wedding flowers.
Sarah's bouquet was classic garden style bouquet with blush and white garden roses, spray roses, and ranunculus paired with sage eucalyptus and dusty miller greenery.
