Northern California greenhouse wedding: Angela + Wing
There is a single thing you cannot escape in Northern California: beautiful surroundings and lush green foliage all over the place you seem. For that explanation, Angela + Wing had the greatest time preparing an out of doors, woodsy themed wedding ceremony. Their venue, the Shelldance Orchid Gardens, a grouping of greenhouses filled with exotic vegetation, orchids and succulents was the greatest backdrop to their ceremony. And their reception? It was like a thing out of Alice in Wonderland – terrariums with mini mushrooms and ladybugs with table quantities wrapped in twine. As fairly as this wedding ceremony is, Angela reminds us,”It’s straightforward coming up with the concepts (the exciting component), executing them is another story all together!”
We labored with Amy at The TreeSpace Studio on our invitations. I seemed at several on the internet stationers but had a difficult time discovering models that fully conveyed our concept and aesthetic. Amy’s patterns are colorful and whimsical which was entirely in line with our theme, but what I love most is that her invitations are definitely unique hand-drawn works of art! Amy presented templates that we could select from that expenses much less than commencing a design from scratch (which she could do also), with end benefits that are even now quite original & special. We determined on a design that highlighted our greenhouse venue.
Angela’s bouquet utilized chocolate cosmos, cymbidium, oncidium, coreopsis, scabiosa bouquets & pods, uluhe (fiddlehead) fern, china berry, dianthus, echeveria, and maple leaves.
Aren’t you loving all the specifics? Congrats Angela + Wing!
