Remember this amazing invitation suite?  Well it set the tone for Ricki and Geoff’s earthy and colorfully-rustic celebration.  LaVonne of Adorations botanical created the most stunning floral displays and installation.  She took our request of “mismatched, über-rustic, eclectic and bountiful” to a whole other level by incorporating mosses, succulents, rocks, books, wrought iron planters, railroad ties, filament light bulbs, mercury glass and artichokes to name a few.  We were able to source a chalkboard globe that guests could write their well-wishes upon for Ricki and Geoff and Ricki’s mother crocheted about 1000 doilies to adorn the ceremony benches and other installation pieces.  Ricki and Geoff’s main priority was that their guests have a great time!  Guests were treated to a decadent meal and the elaborate dessert was highlighted by a flaming crepe bar.  As a nod to Geoff’s favorite, In n’ Out, guests were served late-night snacks from the classic California staple.  The sounds of PopVinyl had the dance floor packed till the wee hours!
