Prep & Petals with Lani Elizabeth

We were delighted to have the opportunity to photograph Lani and Elizabeth (of Lani Elizabeth Fine Design in Flowers & Events: LaniElizabeth.com) in preparation for a beautiful spring wedding at Nestldown in Los Gatos, California. These girls have it alright!  They have a pretty little studio in downtown Los Gatos where they prepare all their flowers for events.

The playful studio with walls colored a subtle pink, lined with a colorful ribbon wall, gold Chiavari chairs, and a delicate pink chandelier are the perfect setting for preparing colorful flowers.  Pictures of happy brides holding their wedding bouquets, each framed with a unique frame are scattered around the cottage-like studio.

Then we followed Lani & Elizabeth for a behind-the-scenes peek into what goes on before a wedding begins: the table settings, the seating cards, the food & drinks, and of course the FLOWERS!  Elizabeth and Lani begin their day early so they get the freshest pick of flowers. At the studio they start assembling the bouquets of hydrangeas, roses, chrysanthemums, peonies, and some incredible lady slipper orchids imported from Hawaii. They start by carefully hand selecting each stem for the arrangements, and cutting each one so it sits just right. Then they pick a ribbon for each bouque from their colorful ribbon wall, wrap their stems tightly, and pin them in place with pearl-ended pins.

One wonderful thing about these girls is how easy they are to work with. Even with several intense situations that day (just trust us on that), they were relaxed and totally in control. They handled the sticky situations with grace and poise!

The end product was a stunning reflection of their artistry and skill!

What a great life these ladies have.  They are surrounded by beauty all day long while they work!  Oh, the life of a florist!
