Costa Mesa Wedding, Part One
Eric and Lacey

POSTED IN : Weddings

Lacey admits that when she wants to say something important, she can talk for a while. She has a sweet heart with an expressive upbeat attitude that always sees the greener side of life, so when it came time to write her vows, the first version went on for a few pages. She realized she needed to cut it down to the core of what she wanted to say. During the ceremony, facing the love of her life in front of their friends and family after emotional speeches and meaningful traditions, Lacey came to the end of her vows, stopped short, smiled at Eric and said, "You know, what I'm really trying to say is that I just want to have a really great life with you so I'm gonna be really nice to you and love you a lot." Which is the core of what everyone wants to say to the one we love. I watched all of us in the audience turn, give the person snuggled next to us a sweet smile, and allow a tear to fall down our cheeks knowing that Lacey spoke so plainly the truth of what all of us are trying to say at every moment of this life we get to live together. "I'm just gonna love you a lot." Eric and Lacey are near and dear to our hearts because we met them at Lacey's sister's city chic wedding at Cafe Pinot two years ago and fell deeply in love with their entire family. In keeping with her family's impeccable sense of style and creativity, Lacey and Eric's day was all about sustainability - not just to be nice to the planet but so that the precious items and memories of their wedding day would last past the midnight hour. They borrowed precious items like her veil and heirloom jewelry, designed florals made entirely out of re-plantable succulents, and gave small glass mason jars of soil planted with basil seeds as favors for guests to take home. Toss in the countless emotional moments and the sweet love between Eric and Lacey and we have the kind of day that can't help but make you smile!

In her eternally positive attitude, Lacey knew hers could last, so she had her florist design sustainable bouquets completely out of succulents and build them so that they could be planted the next day and grow! Lacey was so excited to plant a bridesmaid garden in honor of each girl. *LOVE* Costa Mesa Wedding, Turnip Rose Promenade wedding, Orange County wedding, Irvine wedding, Turnip Rose wedding, business park wedding, succulent wedding, succulent centerpieces, succulent bouquets, sustainable bouquets, replant bouquet, long lasting bouquet, succulent florals   Costa Mesa Wedding, Turnip Rose Promenade wedding, Orange County wedding, Irvine wedding, Turnip Rose wedding, business park wedding, succulent wedding, succulent centerpieces, succulent bouquets, sustainable bouquets, replant bouquet, long lasting bouquet, succulent florals A favorite from the day.
