An Enchanted Wedding Celebration at The Prado with Floral Decor by Blush Botanicals

By, February 18, 2013

We love being creative, and going “all out” for excited couples who are passionate about working with us! Our favorite part of what we do is seeing the finished product come together on the wedding day.

We recently had the honor of creating the floral decor for Tanya and Cameron’s big day at the The Prado in Balboa Park.


Tanya chose a beautiful and meaningful bridal bouquet of soft ivory, blush and grey tones, complete with texture and detail. The handle was finished in ivory satin, and included aspects from the bridal gown, as well as photos of family members.


What started with a few inspiration photos from Tanya and Cameron gave us quickly became a completely customized look. Following their color scheme of deep reds, burgundy, and natural green tones, we created unique groomsman boutonnieres and bridesmaid bouquets. The colors used were a nice complement to their grey satin dresses!


The reception at The Prado was enhanced with candles, which were presented in clear and mercury glasses. The room had a beautiful glow, and it set the mood for a romantic evening.


The head table, which was focal point of the room, was draped in beautiful crushed champagne linen and gold Chiavari chairs. Details of the table included mercury glass vessels of varying sizes. The eclectic vases and candles were separated by two tall Manzanita branch centerpieces.


We placed two types of centerpieces around the reception area. First, we used natural brown Manzanita branches, which were presented in custom stained-wood boxes. We draped deep red, burgundy and natural green blooms from the branches, as well as glowing hanging candles. These stunning arrangements helped to create drama and beauty throughout the room.


The next centerpiece was designed by filling a mercury glass vase with richly colored florals. Vases were separated by tall mercury glass candle holders, which paired beautifully with the gold chargers set out for each guest.


We appreciated Tanya and Cameron’s trusting nature, and their energy throughout the planning process. It is always refreshing to work with a young couple who is so in love, and so energized about their big day! The florals came together beautifully, and set the tone for an enchanted evening!
