Vendors We Love!
Working with a florist and investing in flowers for your wedding day can be one of the best parts of planning a wedding! Flowers create good vibes and can sometimes even stop people in their tracks in such a wonderful way!
Depending on your design, flowers can create a mood of drama, whimsy, formal, colorful, bold, or ethereal…You name it – whatever you are trying to create. It’s your show – your production – your chance to have a “fancy” party if you choose to.
In Oakland (Temescal area) there is this beautiful little shop called Crimson Horticultural Rarities. In addition to the cutest little brick and mortar store, they also operate a floral design studio that does gorgeous wedding work! You can tell they love what they do, have fun, and are very expressive with their arrangements in a way that I love! Their aesthetic and vision inspire me. I visit their shop every time I visit Oakland.
A couple of years ago, Jack + Ginger Studios planned a wedding in Guerneville, California – and we got to work with Crimson Florals. I have fond memories of the crew foraging the wedding property on the day of – looking for last-minute touches to add to their pieces. It was a nice detail as they could have just brought the items finished. Instead, they created something seasonally and locally authentic by incorporating the venue’s diverse foliage. This subtly wasn’t lost on me. They approached their florals in a truly organic freeform way that I don’t get to see very often. If you want something truly unique check them out!
For those of you in the Bay Area, you are lucky enough to have your Mother’s Day covered with a thoughtful selection of gifts, plants, and flowers, of course, all available for curbside pickup!
Check out their handles @crimsonflorals + @crimsonhort where you can get an idea of their vibes! Also, don’t miss out on their website right here to learn more about what they have to offer for curbside pickup 🙂
