Fantasy bouquets, pomander balls, flowering crystal wands, and blooming wreaths introduced a botanical floral landscape complete with a cobble stone pathway on the lawn at The Lodge at Torrey Pines. Poppies and succulents surrounded the handcrafted moss ceremonial riser, while the four directional compass points were acknowledged with sacred rituals symbolic to the bride and groom's Native American Indian and Celtic heritages. They were enclosed within a five point floral canopy representing the five elements of earth, air, fire, water, and spirit as they exchanged their vows.
Amethyst geodes, copper wood risers, and Manzanita branches were adorned with succulents, air plants, and a collection of vivid orchids, such as lady slipper, phalaenopsis and cymbidium; each placed with attention to floral artistry and set amongst numerous calla lilies, and ornamental ferns with artichokes and kale and woodland mushrooms as surprising finishing details.
