LA Floral Vendor: Dandelion Ranch

I love Dandelion Ranch where they seek out the freshest flora daily from local growers and place them in vintage pitchers, wine boxes, soup terrines, and retro ceramic sap buckets. They are committed to the environment and use toxin free floral foam for their centerpieces. I love the organic, yet modern, rustic look of many of their creations. Beautiful. Oh, and their store is located in a barn in Culver City – how cool is that? A barn in the middle of the city…gotta love LA!

Dandelion Ranch, 4701 West Jefferson Boulevard, Suite 3, East Culver City

Silhouettes!

I’ve kind of been obsessed with silhouettes lately. I think they can work for a vintage theme or more modern wedding theme. Whether you incorporate them on your invitations, desserts, jewelry, or other decor, they will bring a custom feel to your day. I also love the idea of silhouette wall hangings displayed at the wedding with a beautiful ribbon to match your colors. Classic beauty! … will you be using silhouettes in your wedding?

Another fun idea is to hire a silhouette artist to come to your wedding. Karl Johnson is an amazing silhouette artist and he lives here in Los Angeles. Having a silhouette artist at your wedding is a unique way to allow your guests an opportunity to take home a charming and wonderful keepsake of themselves and of your day. You can also send him a photo (before the wedding to use that day or after to keep as a memory) and he will create a custom piece for you.

The photos below are from two different weddings he worked at. Working in under three minutes, Johnson made two copies of each likeness at once – one, pasted onto paper, was given to each guest and one to the couple as a surprise. Love that!

Real Wedding: Jenn + Josh’s New Year’s Day Smog Shoppe Wedding

I am so excited to share this wedding today! The talented James Christianson (you may remember him from this lakeside wedding) sent me this and I knew I would love it since it was at one of my favorite venues – The Smog Shoppe in Culver City (it’s green also!) This one is stunning. A gorgeous couple, beautiful dress, succulents, and great details. I asked Jenn to tell me a bit about her planning. ” We tried to incorporate as many handmade/DIY elements in our day. We love the city and earth and are fond of a blend of the two.. We also tried to be as “green” as possible and our venue really set a good foundation for what we were aiming for.”

Thanks so much for sharing these beautiful photos (there are some GORGEOUS portraits of the couple – Jenn is stunning – so love that dress!!) and the details of your day. Congrats Jenn and Josh! Check out James’ Blog for more of his beautiful photos.
