Colorful summer Santa Cruz wedding: Kelly + Ben
Hello, peony bouquet of the year! Just wait till you take in all the rest of the florals Freckled Floral whipped up for these summery forest nuptials. Kelly + Ben also enlisted Two Roads Event Co. to bring their colorful, bloom-filled design to life, and one of her bridesmaids, the talented The Poffs to capture the day.
One of Kelly’s biggest struggles was landing on the perfect bridesmaids’ dresses. She wanted her gals to find the perfect fit and something they’d want to wear again and again. Show Me Your Mumu in floral + coral for the win!
Kelly says, I would describe our theme as bohemian with touches of rustic + country. Flowers were the most important décor to me so I made sure I found my perfect florist that I knew I could trust bringing my vision to life.
Speaking of, the bouquet had roses + lilies in addition to the mega coral charm peonies. Tara of Freckled Floral also mixed in free-flowing greenery. You guys taking notes yet?
The bride walked down the aisle to Holocene by Bon Iver and their first dance was to Find the Light by David Ramirez.
Doesn’t this look like the most fun celebration to be at? Not to mention, there’s an ice cream truck…
A few final words of wisdom, c/o our bride… We took a few months after we got engaged before we started seriously planning. My advice to brides would be to trust their vision and style. Not everyone will understand your vision during the planning process, but if you stay true to your personal style and vision it will show through on your big day.
Congrats you two!
