Day and Night

We love our friends and photographers and Meghan Savage photography is one of our favorites. Her soft photos will place you in a dream land of romance and grace. We enjoy working along side her and being apart of her vision. This was a day and night inspired shoot. Starting with the soft elegant look and ending with a dark mysterious candle light look. So fun playing with the different looks. Hair by April Arnold makeup by Alexia Wambua dresses by Altar Bridal and styling and flowers by Victorian Gardens.

California Dreams…Come true…. Florabundance Design Days 2015

2015 has had an amazing start. The first week back from Christmas we jetted off to Santa Barbara California to attend the much anticipated Florabundance design days with Flutter Magazine at the Lotus Land Botanical Gardens. This was an mind blowing experience as we made lasting friendships with other floral designers from around the globe. Many came from all over the U.S. but also from Canada and even Australia. The week was spent working, learning and training under some of the top designers in the industry. Many who have inspired us at Victorian Gardens for years and have been on the current and cutting edge of design and styles. Designers like Holly Chapple, Amy Merrick, Sarah Winward of Honey of a Thousand Oaks, Alicia Schwede with bellafiori.com, Tricia Fountaine and Francoise Weeks. We learned skill sets, new design styles and current tricks of the trade as well as opportunities to see styling of events and have our designs in photo shoots and professional photos taken by some the the top photographers in the world. K.T. Merry,  While also allowing time to visit and build friendships with many of these sweet professionals. All of this took place in a beautiful setting of the Lotus Land Botanical gardens in the heart of Santa Barbara on the mesmerizing  and private grounds and gardens. Wonderful meals were served everyday and Joost at Florabundance provided a bountiful supply of new product brought over from Holland for us to dig into and play with everyday. Even the local news station came to do a special piece on us, as all the arrangements from the day were donated to local charities. In the middle of the fun we also had the pleasure of meeting and visiting with Leanne Kessler of the Floral Design Institute who was the first inspiration when we first began our Journey many years ago in 1995. This week was so full of once in a life time opportunities and meeting so many inspiring and wonderful people we are immensely grateful to Florabundance for this stunning event. Photography by
