WILDFLOWERS AT THE LAKE

Greetings and thanks for stopping in today on this beautiful day in Fall. My day was particularly beautiful as I got to spend a couple of hours in a very special flower & gift shop we have here in Lake Arrowhead. It’s called “Wildflowers At The Lake” and it’s definitely one of the prettiest places in town.

As I mentioned in this previous post, my son proposed to his longtime girlfriend during a recent camping trip to Yosemite.

And because both he and his fiance are extremely busy doctoring & lawyering, they have asked me to take the lead in planning their destination wedding which will take place next September here in Lake Arrowhead, California. So, to help us get ideas for wedding flowers & wedding decor I visited Wildflower At The Lake and sat down with floral designer, Sheryl, in this cosy corner of their darling shop.

My future daughter-in-law and I have found a design esthetic that will guide all of our decisions for the wedding. We are calling it Ralph Lauren Meets The Mountains. Our beautiful inspiration wedding table shown in the following 3 photos comes from the very talented Victoria Katsikis of Ellie Alexandra.

The wedding reception will take place in the backyard of my mountain home here in Lake Arrowhead. It is covered in pine trees very similar to the area pictured here. Theirs will be an intimate wedding of about 80 guests so we will arrange about 4 long tables of 20 in the woods.

It was fun brainstorming at Wildflowers At The Lake. They are so talented and left me with lots to contemplate. I had not even considered all of the various arrangements we will need until I went over everything with them. The list includes:

  • Bridal Bouquet
  • Bridesmaids Bouquets
  • Boutineers for Groomsmen
  • Crown of Flowers for the Flower Girl
  • Flower Cuffs or Corsages for the Moms & Grandma’s (that’s me!)
  • Petals for the Aisle & for the Flower Girls to Toss
  • Arrangements for the Ceremony
  • Flowers for the Wedding Cake
  • Floral Decor for the Ceremony Chairs
  • Greenery or Garlands for the Staircase, Wedding Arch/Arbor
  • Arrangements for the Reception Tables
  • Arrangements for the Bar, Cake Table, Beverage Table, Etc.
  • Arrangements for the Rehearsal Dinner

Am I missing anything??

Maybe we will incorporate some fun slices of wood like these into our table decor.

    Oh my goodness, how beautiful and what a darling couple. Ralph Lauren meets the Mountains sounds like a fabulous theme for a wedding in September. I love weddings! Great post.

  • Thank you! Yes, September is a transitional month, not quite summer, almost fall. But here in Lake Arrowhead it can be cool so we are leaning toward the rich colors of fall for the wedding theme. I’m having so much fun helping with the plans!

    This may be obvious; but be certain you have an indoor backup plan that you love just as much, that wouldn’t be a disappointment…….When helping to plan our daughter’s summer wedding, I was just sure it would rain that day, so we made all preparations for a lovely indoor wedding with some great outdoor photoshoot possibilities. (It DID rain very hard that day…. but all went very well… indoors 🙂 ) Hope you enjoy the process!
