Talented floral designer Nancy Liu Chin sent me these gorgeous details from a relaxed country wedding she recently did at B R Cohn in Sonoma. All photos are by the equally talented Lisa Lefkowitz. I love the colors and tone of everything. Nancy was also kind enough to share some of her thoughts in the planning also. Thanks so much Nancy!
Love the ribbon hanging on the back of the chairs!
From Nancy, “We did alternating arrangements for the table. All were in rustic containers that I found at Coast Wholesale. We used floating candles instead of pillars. It’s a cost saving tip. These giant succulent are now widely available. Maidenhair fern is also a favorite of mine. I placed them in tall rustic pails and added bright green moss.”
Wheat foliage, billy ball’s treated with a bright green coat of spray paint, geranium foliage, and lovely open garden like roses in a rustic brown pail on the left. This cake by the lovely ladies at Patisserie Angelica looks divine in photos and smelled even more lovely in person. Many times when I get to a venue, I set aside a bucket of flowers for the baker. While the wedding was happening I didn’t have a time to peek at the cake. When I saw it, I wanted to cake myself a piece. I love dainty cakes like this. More narrow then wide but equally as dramatic on a cocktail round. The height of the cake stand added to it.
