Monica & Frank

Gina at En Luce Photography shared images of the flowers we did for Monica and Frank's wedding a couple of weeks ago.

The bridal bouquet was made of all white phaleanopsis orchids with jewels and beads inserted.

The bridesmaids bouquets were a simple stem of white hydrangea with succulents and peacock feathers.

The groom's boutonniere matched the bridal bouquet with a white phaleanopsis orchid.

The groomsmen's boutonnieres were made from small white cymbidium orchid blooms and a succulent to match the bridesmaid's bouquets.

The wrist corsage made out of green cymbidium orhcid makes an elegant presentation.

Monica accented her veil with a hand-wired phaleanopsis orchid to match the groom's boutonniere.
This shot reveals the groom's whimsical side.
From the ceremony to the reception the couple drove a vintage inspired wagon.

The reception, at Julia Morgan Ballroom on California Street, Downtown San Francisco, features white and green flowers including orchids, lilies, tulips, hydrangea, vibernum and amaranthus. 
The tablescapes utilized the architectural interest of both high and low centerpieces, perfect for the ballroom.

Thanks to Monica and frank for allowing Edmond's Floral to be a part of your gorgeous day.  For more images of this wedding, refer to En Luce's Blog at

We are always searching for the most unique varieties of flowers.  At Edmond's, a rose is not just a rose.
Edmond's first inspriation when he started the shop 17 years ago was the heliconia.  Today, still, we carry a wide variety of tropical flowers from lobster claw heliconia to monkey tail and antherium.
