air plants and umbrellas

Did anyone else see this insanely amazing wedding from Feather Love? Not sure exactly where I stumbled on it yesterday but the air plants got me. It’s creative in a way that only Flora Grubb could be (the groom is Flora’s brother). I’m thinking air plants might be the new succulent? Which would be nice because while I love love love succulents to death and used them for my own wedding, I’m starting to feel that they are becoming a wee bit tiresome when it comes to wedding decor.

Don’t get me wrong, I will love them for always in the same way that I love mason jars. But I want to see something new and inspired from time to time too.

Just look here and then go see the entire 4 day event including a HUGE party at Flora Grubb Gardens after the actual wedding in Carmel on Feather Love’s blog.

How amazing is the huge Tillandsia bouquet? Gorgeouso. The bride is beautiful too, which always helps. Sometimes I want dark thick indie model hair with bangs too. But it would look real weird with my freckles I think.

Final thought: if your name was Flora Grubb, could you do anything EXCEPT open a beautiful garden shop? No. No you couldn’t.

    Love this wedding. It's so gorgeous. Did you see the bride's other dress too? Fab-u-lous :)

    Her hair steals the show for me. I hope they honeymooned on a yacht and took lots of windswept pictures.

    OK. I just finished going through the whole wedding. That has to be my all time favorite event I have ever seen. Perfect in every way.

    I read about this wedding in the NYTs and was like – that is Grubb Gardens, succulent wall people! The description of the couple is worth a read.
