I am really so excited and honored with my newest wildflower account: Cortez! Everything in the space is already so beautifully curated (including the beautiful Sam Gore vases I get to use) by owners Marta Teegan and Robert Stelzner that it makes is absolutely divine to float in there and add some finishing touches.

Have you eaten there yet? Go! It's absolutely stellar. I find myself lingering after the flowers are done to have a coffee and appreciate all the beauty around me.

Thank you so much Marta + Robert!

Christine + Sasha

got to use a hydrangea from my garden as a boutonniere

herb bouquets of sage and eucalyptus awaiting to be strung

wildflowers being used by the brilliant Christopher for cyanotypes of table numbers

Christine's bouquet

a wreath instead of a bouquet for Christine's sister; so elegant and different, no?

tons of gold leafing!

Ojai at dusk

I love how the flowers for her hair turned out.

beautiful bride & groom


eucalyptus + anemones make a for a stellar partnership

Pretty Lauren (of sphinx & the milky way) making vegan s'mores by the fire

wildflower + herb garland for the chuppah

oh a guest drunk off of love having some fun ;)

and lastly, none of this could have been done without all of Elijah's help

This past August, I got the grand privilege to do the floral artistry for a very special wedding in Ojai, California. This ceremony-of-love was so special and the couple's love so powerful that it sent endearing shock-waves to all the guests and I think it's safe to speak on everyone's behalf when I say that we all felt high from love throughout the entire time! I was really impressed too with Christine and Sasha's friends: they all worked together to make this happen from the very beginning to the very end. You could feel everyone's excitement and joy spilling everywhere!

Lovely-as-can-be Christine trusted me from the very beginning and gave me carte blanche for the everything. That was incredibly wonderful for me and gave me the freedom to spin some serious beautiful wild magic! Daydream more here for a bit...

xx Thank you so much Christine + Sasha! xx

***noteworthy: please take a look at the wedding invitation. It. Is. Divine. 
(made through the synergy of the genius paring of  Lauren and Christopher)

Linda McCartney

I've been really thinking a lot about family lately. What my relationships are with my family and how close or far away some members have come and gone. What both my role and theirs plays in that. I also was recently reminded of how much I wholeheartedly appreciate Linda McCartney's photographs. She had such an eye and tenderness, such a heartfelt manner in capturing her subjects. I am really moved when I look through her body of work. It also nurtures a spark in me of what I want with my family (and the ones yet to come).
