Marissa & Ruben

Hello and welcome back!

This week, I’d like to share with you images from Marissa & Ruben’s wedding. The ceremony and reception took place at the very charming Tennessee Gardens ( in Redlands, CA.


Marissa had found Lannetus via and upon our initial phone conversation, I knew that I would be entrusted to do her flowers. After a few email exchange, I finally met with Marrissa and her “ride or die girl”, aka mom. At the end of our meeting, mom insisted on giving me a hug and boy, does she give a mean hug (heart). Because of this personable first impression, I was looking forward to her big day to execute and display the fruits of the trust they have instilled in me. And now, I get to share with you all.

Flower: single white Rose, pink Ranunculus, burgundy Ranunculus buds, and greens.


The Centerpieces were lanterns and bud vases incorporate with red Roses, burgundy Dahlias, Astilbe, a hint of white Wax Flower, and draping Amaranthus.
