Gorgeous and Green decorated another green wedding at the UC Berkeley Botanical Garden, here in Berkeley. Reuse of vintage glassware, local flowers, and succulents. The bouquet came out beautifully, and featured some local succulents I grew for the wedding!
Most of the wedding was vivid jewel tones, a theme taken from the bride's collection of glassware that we used to decorate tables at the Garden's conference center.
Since the bride was wearing a vintage inspired cream lace gown, we toned down the bouquet to give it the same vintage and feminine feel.
The great thing about cut succulents in a bouquet is that after the wedding is over, you can replant your succulents in soil and they will grow into a plant!
