Wedding of Kristyna and Matt 11/11/11

Bride Kristyna was referred to me last year by an old friend of mine, Jennifer, who I met at high school :) We connected on Facebook (thanks FB! ;)) and it was great to meet with both Jennifer and Kristyna to discuss her upcoming wedding on thier special day of November 11, 2011.

I had the pleasure of designing Kristyna and Matt's wedding at the Prado in Balboa Park with quite a unique challenge -- the wedding colors were orange and blue (Matt's Gator colors ;))!

While it seemed like an impossible feat at first, it all came together beautifully to create a truly vivid wedding on a gorgeous day!

My first floral blog!

Flower talk has been up recently and several times I have been told I should blog because "its so easy!" Well, wa-la! Here I am to start blogging about KO Floral Designs!

So far this year I, KO of KO floral (Kristin Osterloh, not "Knock Out" as most think ;) ), have designed one wedding. It was for Rob and Sylvia in January up at Levyland Estates in Carlsbad. I was referred by an old friend, Jessica, who works with Rob. Its a beautiful and private spot on a lagoon...when I first toured the spot I thought "this is the kinda place I would LOVE to get married at!!"

Anywho, long story short, the wedding day was a gorgeous sunny San Diego the middle of winter :) Wedding colors were red, white and black and I was asked for advice as to what additional colors would enhance the three already chosen. Instantly I thought punchy pinks and deep purples and what do you know, Sylvia loved the idea!

Wedding florals included several bouquets, boutonnieres and corsages for the bridal party and family. Ceremony decor included an arch that was disassembled and re-used in pieces across the head table (KO Floral is GREAT at helping brides get the most out of thier flowers and money!). 15 3-piece all-white centerpieces adorned the reception-- with black gems and water-submersible LED lights to uplight the flowers (plus, no open flames allowed!). Many other details were included but that highlights the major florals :)

Overall, the wedding was a big success and I am thankful for the opportunity to be a part of Rob and Sylvia's big day!

I will do my best to post pictures taken by my Droid...hopefully soon I can share professional shots!
