Long Beach Museum of Art Oceanview LBMA Wedding Flowers

May 31, 2011

One of the most beautiful weddings I have ever worked on was in May at the Long Beach Museum of Art, LBMA.  Here are a few photos from that day.  These great shots were taken by Mia Dolce who is a wedding photographer based in Los Alamitos.

I love the Long Beach Museum of Art.  This building, which is a century old, is a registered historic building with SO much character.  Not only is it a gorgeous structure, it also faces the ocean and is one of the few venues in Los Angeles County with a TRUE ocean view from a cliff.  The museum has wonderful food made by Claire’s the museum’s restaurant.

The bride, Julie, was going for an antique botanical feel and she chose beautiful  flowers like peonies, garden  roses, Queen Anne’s Lace, and oak leaf hydrangea. This was used in the bouquets but the centerpieces were comprised of crystallized lemons.  Each lemon (all 352 of them) were crystallized one-by one by myself and my floral assistant. Below the lemons were some of Julie’s favorite herbs; rosemary, lavender, and a bed of eucalyptus leaves which had the most  amazing scent.  The cake incorporated the fruit theme with organic kumquats which were crystallized.  The kumquats were grown locally and shipped, along with the lemons, from an organic grower in Ventura County.

How cute are the bride’s shoes? Too cute! Her dress is one of my favorites too and was designed by Jim Hjelm.
