Spring Fling

Jessica and Edward Fichtner got married a few weekends ago in San Diego. They had the wedding in Balboa Park, and the reception at the Prado, a historic mansion. To celebrate spring, they chose an orange, pink and green pallet and hired Sharon at Organic Elements to create vibrant displays using green hydrangea, bright pink hyacinth, orange tulips, orange ranunculus, pink freesia and green hanging amaranthus - all of which were in season and available locally. Sharon used the same flowers to top their lemon cake with buttercream frosting and instead of having favors Jessica and Edward set up a candy buffet to match. It was a huge success: "People loved it. They ate every piece so nothing went to waste!" To create the candy buffet, they bought bulk sweets and placed them in apothecary jars which they plan to resell (considering the fact that several friends have already expressed interest in reusing for their weddings it should not be hard!). What a fun and tasty way to celebrate the season. Photographs courtesy of Meurer Image Photography.
