A Trip to the Flower Mart

We were recently lucky enough to make a special trip to the San Francisco Flower Mart to drop off some wedding invitations to a wedding planner we work with. We love going to the Flower Mart and could spend all day in there!

The Flower Mart is where wedding vendors and other professionals can get locally grown flowers direct from growers at wholesale prices. It's always such a treat walking through the Mart and we thought it would be fun to show you some behind the scenes photos, including prep for the wedding we did the invites for. Enjoy!

Wedding Inspiration Board - Nouveau Peonies

Today we're bringing you a wedding inspiration board for one of our most popular and dare we say favorite wedding invitations, Nouveau Peonies. If you're planning a celebration around this invitation you can go all out feminine or emphasis the 1920's vibe this design showcases. Pretty pink petal cupcakes above from All Things Cupcake.

If you love your wedding suite and really want to bring the design to the table there's no reason not to print up menus, they'll add to the place settings and reinforce your theme of the day. Big paper poofs in whatever color you chose for your invite are always a lovely addition to the decor. And how's this for a classic wedding getaway car?

There are so many different directions you can go for a wedding dress to match the charm and sophistication of Nouveau Peonies. Go all out 1920's with this flapper wedding dress or chose a more soft and subtle style like this pretty cream colored gown.

To see more curated inspiration for our Nouveau Peonies wedding suite check out our Pinterest board. Is there a wedding suite you've got your eye on that you'd like us to create a mood board for? Tell us in the comments and we'll get to work on it for you!

Locally Grown Love Event Recap

We had a great time this past Sunday at the Locally Grown Love event here in San Francisco. It was one of the most fun and unique wedding events we've attended and it really felt more like a great party with lots of useful information for brides to be or anyone who likes organizing events and throwing parties. And did we mention it was held at Studio Trilogy, a recording studio that boasts Lady Gaga as one of its clients? An impressive lineup of classes and panel discussions were scheduled throughout the day and we kicked things off with a wine and cheese pairing tutorial led by Domaine Somm.

Lia took her imbibing very seriously and prepared the perfect blend of goat cheese and pepper jelly to match with her Riesling.

The owners of Succulence were on hand to teach people how to care for air plants and succulents and we loved the inventive terrariums they brought. We were also surprised to learn that most blooms used in bouquets and boutonnieres can be replanted and enjoyed for years. What a great way for guests to remember your big day!

With high ceilings, amazing acoustics and a beautiful private patio, the venue would be a great place for a a special event (maybe a musical wedding?). We were lucky enough to be there on one of San Francisco's rare sunny days and Lillian soaked up as many rays as possible!

Its always a party with our friends from Magnolia Photo Booth Co. and we simply can't resist their silly props and instant mementos. This is surely one for our collection!

Congratulations on a great event Locally Grown Weddings! We had a blast.
