I recently had the pleasure to work with the lovely Annette Hoegner of A Classic Touch Events on her own vow renewal! I love working with Annette; and I was thrilled to help design this vow renewal at the Paradise Point Resort and Spa in San Diego for her and her husband Ryan. They are clearly still very much in love!

Vow renewals are a chance for a couple to reflect on how far they’ve come together and to reaffirm a strong bond and commitment. Annette and Ryan’s beautiful children were involved in the ceremony and other family members were also there to show their love and support. There’s nothing like being around friends and family to remind you how truly lucky you really are.

If you’re feeling overwhelmed or uninspired with all of the bridal bouquet options out there; fear no more! These bouquets are sure to spark your interest and just maybe you’ll find one that speaks to you. Get ready to fall in love all over again!
This is a romantic tear-drop, cascading style bouquet made of Vendella Roses, Pink Roses and Phalaenopsis Orchids.

If you’re looking for a semi-contemporary bouquet, this one is perfect! It’s a hand-tied bouquet in shades of cream and blush pink. It’s wrapped with ribbon at the base and the flowers are cream Vendella Roses with Rosita Vendella Roses in blush.

For the more traditional bride, this is a simple, timeless and elegant option; and one of my personal favorites. This bouquet contains a gorgeous variety of flowers; including Vendella Roses, Polo Roses, cream Spray Roses, Hydrangea, with Stephanotis and rhinestones as the finishing touch!

This contemporary bouquet is adorned with pink Mini Callas with rhinestone accents, Polo Roses and blush Cymbidium Orchids.

Here’s a modern and versatile bouquet that can be used in the summer as well as fall. These particular flowers are called Mango Mini Callas.

This beautiful bouquet is vintage all the way! I created this for the Water for Elephants photo shoot; and it’s a timeless beauty!

Victoria & Jared were married at the historic Mission Inn in Riverside. It really is amazing to see a couple so in love; they definitely have great energy for one another as you could see the twinkle in their eyes!  This wedding’s design aesthetic was inspired by Victoria. She wanted simple & elegant with modern touches. No problem there! Victoria and Jared told me that they’ve always loved the Mission Inn and it’s old world charm.


I usually determine the style of the wedding by simply looking at what my client is wearing, and asking where they shop. That way, I can navigate the overall design concept through the vision of the client. In Victoria’s case, she is just simply gorgeous! I had no problem designing around her.

Victoria’s bouquet is my personal favorite. It was elegant, with a modern twist. She mentioned that she liked the pave style for her bouquet with rhinestones. The bouquet was outlined with Crystal Blush Mini Callas and Pink Persuasion Mini Callas.

The centerpieces were shades of white and cream with accents of magenta in black trumpet vases dripping with crystals. The reception had an elegant and modern feel. We used our silver window pane linens with black satin napkins. The chairs were covered with silver satin universal chair covers by Creative Touch Linens.

Thank you Tony Reyes for your beautiful photography! I also want to thank Dan & Dorian and their team at LJP Events for coordinating the wedding.
