An LGBT Wedding at UC Davis Arboretum
We have had the opportunity to plan and design a number of LGBT weddings over the last couples years. Last October, Inspirations by Gina was contacted by Angela who was looking for someone to create florals and decor for her wedding to Cassie. Yay! We were so excited because our philosophy is that Love is Love and we do not discriminate against anyone who finds love. Angela met with us and we immediately clicked on the design and what she was envisioning for her wedding day. The UC Davis Arboretum is such a serene and special place that we wanted to capture the organic elements in our design for Angela and Cassie.
We decided that we would use lots of greenery such as sword ferns along with a single echeveria succulent, seeded eucalyptus to represent the woods in Angela’s bouquet. The pop of colors of cream roses and purple burgundy florals tied into the design of Angela’s gown and her desire to bring in the color burgundy for the wedding.
We continued with the design of the woods throughout the reception decor and the centerpieces for the guest tables were wooden boxes filled with florals, pots and succulents. We decorated the simple wedding cake with cream roses to compliment the rest of the design throughout the reception.
Angela was overcome with so much emotion when we presented her with her bouquet! Also, when Angela and Cassie arrived at the D Street Steakhouse, they were both blown away when they saw not only the florals but the reception decor. This is why we do what we do because we love it when our clients are happy with what we create for their special day.
