A Soft and Sweet, Spring Inspired San Diego Styled Wedding Shoot

Inspired by spring and its greenery, Rachael Smith Photography's goal for this styled shoot was to keep spring alive at Hotel Karlan. With the help of some awesome local vendors, she was able to do just that! The beautiful, muted shades in the floral arrangements by Floral Occasions by Janna Hatch perfectly capture the soft, airy feeling of spring while Farm Tables and More provides the perfectly simple China, tables, and chairs.

April Showers Brings a Romantic Peony Paradise

April is in full swing and so are those showers [well what passes for showers in San Diego!]. What May flowers are we excited to see this season, you ask? We cannot wait to see peonies galore! The peony is such a perfect option for a multitude of reasons. For one, it's so easy to work them into your budget. Whether you have a large budget to have strictly peony arrangements at every table or you have a smaller budget and just want to add accent peonies throughout your bouquets, this flower is a solid choice. Another reason to love the peony is they look great with anything you put them with. A bouquet of similarly colored roses, hydrangeas, etc is a romantic and elegant option. However, more and more couples are using greenery in their decor, and peonies are a great complement to give your wedding that modern and rustic feel. You'll see what we mean in this Southern styled wedding.
