Linsey & Roy are two of the sweetest souls you will find. working with them was an inspiring, co-creative JOY from word go. and a (much-needed) downpour on their big day didn’t dampen these radiant smiles one bit. just look at that heart light shine!

we love how the warm rain brought out the color in the locally grown protea and succulents. all felt it was an excellent omen to break a long San Diego drought on your wedding day. all giggles and no complaints from this good-natured, super fun bunch. AND the rain let up right after the ceremony in time for the beach-side reception. (of course!)

the family’s contribution of fresh pikake, cigar flower, orchid, and tuberose leis made this Hawai’i-raised florist giddy. the antique hand-crocheted lace was skillfully collected by the Bride’s Mom, Holly ,and Step-Mom, Chris. these women were nothing but generous, gentle, and inspirational to work with. laying it on a tad thick you say? trust me, i’m actually restraining myself here.

Mom Holly is a curatorial genius, evident in her collection of antique art objects sourced around the globe. she donated these Chinese rice measuring boxes dating from the early 1800’s for me to fill. protea wedding, succulent wedding, beach wedding, native flowers, green wedding, san diego florist, la jolla florist, britton neubacher, tend

Photog Erin Leigh was as smitten by our micro-succulents-in-driftwood as we were. i went to detail geek town on these lil’ guys, and i’d do it again.
