Teri & Duncan

Thank you Mark’s Garden for a spectacular job!

Making Your Mark…

I just love this new division of Williams-Sonoma, Mark and Graham.  A store with a fabulous assortment of personalized gifts.  Perfect ideas for the bridal party at a very good price point. Whats even better? They take care of the gift wrap and it is complimentary!


Supper Club, Montage Deer Valley

Here are a couple of shots from the set up at a corporate event in Deer Valley. I just love the simplicity and repetition.




Out of Africa

We had a great time with the kick-off event for a corporate job in September at the Montage Deer Valley.  Using the most interesting textures and elements this spectacular setting was created. Dolce Designs used old fashion cameras, globes, antique maps and suitcases as part of the table scape.  Lounge areas with safari chairs and a fire pit were the perfect chill space for guests to relax and prepare for s’mores.

Jessica & Jesse

It was a beautiful wedding for Jessica Miller and Jesse Millman (also known as JM2) this last weekend at Pelican Hill.  Thank you Eddie at Tick Toc for the fabulous flowers.  Not only did they make an impressive statement at the wedding but I delivered a few of the arrangements to an old folk’s home and saw so many smiles!

Bethany and Tommy

What a nice surprise to see Bethany and Tommy’s wedding featured on borrowedandblue!  Great job Isabel and Larry!  The wedding took place waaaay up in the hills of Los Olivos at Figueroa Mountain Farmhouse.  Along with this beautiful location, we had one incredible couple, two thoughtful and super delightful families and a slew of very fun guests… the perfect ingredients for a successful and very memorable wedding. Well, of course some lovely and unique details 🙂


Bekki & Dave – Ojai Valley Inn

Rumor has it that this was the most fun wedding EVER!  I have to admit, I don’t think I have laughed so much at a wedding before. That says something for 15 years in the business.  MiBelle did an amazing job at capturing the day and all the crazy details we came up with!  What a joy to work with such fun, nice people who REALLY want an “out of the box” wedding.  From the life size images on the road to the 3D seating cards, this was a down right good ‘ol time at the barn!

Good Old White!

 Good Old White! 

No doubt about it, color is super hot right now but how can you go wrong with white?  I love these little details from a wedding last summer – all white with little hits of color and texture.  It is hard to see but the signature cocktail had a gold flake garnish to add a little sparkle.  Pure and simple!


Happy Valentine’s Day!
