Flower Power = Bliss in Bloom + Floral Occasions

September 17th, 2014|Anemone, Casino San Clemente, San Clemente, Wedding|

The dynamic duo comprised of Bliss in Bloom (Kailua-Kona, HI) and Floral Occasions (San Juan Capistrano, CA) worked their magic yet again at this classic Casino San Clemente Wedding.  We are always thrilled to have the opportunity to work with the ever talented Stacey Fitts at Floral Occasions and this Wedding was no exception!

The Event was made even more special because the Bride, Mikella, is my gorgeous niece!  Mikella and Joe chose the historic icon, Casino San Clemente for their wedding day.  The setting was timeless with lovely grounds, original wood ceilings and panoramic ocean views!  In keeping with their Venue, our Bride and Groom requested that their Florals be elegant, timeless and classic.  Bliss in Bloom and Floral Occasions collaborated to execute an incredible interpretation of the vision that Mikella and Joe shared for their wedding day!  We had a blast creating the DIY centerpieces and kept the Bouquets clean and simple while using French Lavender for a pop of color.

Hawaii Brides:
Don’t miss the opportunity to work with this Flower Power(house) when they team up again in July/August of 2015 on the Big Island!!

The Love Doctor

September 13th, 2014|Uncategorized|

What can I say about these two?  I just fell in love with them as a couple.  Not only for how lovely they were as human beings, but because of their evident, outward and deep love for each other.  They met each other during their Residencies in Seattle, fell in love and decided that the Big Island was the perfect spot to say, “I do.”  Leslie reached out to Bliss in Bloom for her Wedding and Floral Design in addition to Event Coordination and we were thrilled to assist her with her Wedding.

This Event was flawless.  It began with a heartfelt and traditional Hawaiian Wedding Ceremony.  It was followed by a beautiful cocktail hour, games and family photos by the sea.   A stunning dinner was provided by Paradise Gourmet on the Hale Ohia Kai lanai with our signature Kona sunset in the background.  Does it get any better???  Yes it does!  DJ Tiger Jones provided the BEST after party EVER and we danced the night away…

It was our pleasure and complete joy to be a part of this intimate destination wedding that was focused on everything that is truly important in life…loving family, great friends, giant smiles, a rocking good time and true love.

Steph and Eric – Anna Ranch & Mauna Kea Beach Hotel

September 3rd, 2014|Anna Ranch, Bridal Bouquet, Mauna Kea Beach Hotel, Wedding|

We loved being a part of this sweet Anna Ranch Wedding!  Stephanie, the Bride, had a lot of great design and detail ideas and needed help bringing it all together.  

Bliss in Bloom custom made Pinwheels to line the aisle, sourced some antique umbrellas, handmade a rag tie and added some bubble balls with succulents to the Arbor.  The adorable Flower Girl carried one of our favorite touches, a Bliss in Bloom handcrafted baker’s twine basket.  It was fun to add games for the guests to enjoy during the cocktail hour!  

For the reception, we used lots of eclectic vases with a variety of soft and muted toned florals with pops of yellow.  The place card holders were Billy Balls with baker’s twine that held little flags with the names of each guest. All of the design details for this wedding made us swoon!  We wish our Bride and Groom many years of happiness!

The Design is in the Details

August 20th, 2014|Bridal Bouquet, Bridal Gown, Mauna Kea, Peonies, Photo Booth, Tablescapes, Vintage Silver, Wedding|

Every Big Picture is comprised of a myriad of Details.  A bloom is made up of petals, a painting is made up of brushstrokes, a lifetime is made up of  moments.  At Bliss in Bloom, each of our Events contain countless personal details that make them unique.  We savor every single one.

The details of Kristin and Trevor’s wedding at the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel were remarkable.  From the custom sourced, vintage silver as the cornerstone for our tablescape to the clever DIY Photo-booth props, complete with social-media hashtag directives.  From the lovely, sea-side lounge area to the chandeliers.  From the Peonies to the personalized favors.  From the Buddah Staircase wedding ceremony to the Scrabble Tiles in the Honeymoon Suite.  Each of these was a reflection of our Bride and Groom.

The ONE detail that shone the brightest at this particular Event?  The Couple.

Congratulations Kristin and Trevor…Cheers to a Lifetime of beautiful Details.

California Dreaming – Destination Florals

August 15th, 2014|Destination Florals, Ombre Pink, Peonies, Pretty in Pink, San Francisco City Hall|

Misty and Dave rang in the New Year with Happily Ever After…  They were married at the San Francisco City Hall on New Year’s Eve!

In our design, multiple shades of pink were used to create a romantic feel for our Bride.  We also incorporated some hints of rustic touches by using planks of wood on the tables with gold painted, re-purposed cans and bottles for our vases.  Misty added some sweet draping tassels in romantic pinks and metal tones to compliment the decor…Amore!

We were so happy to be a part of this lovely, little wedding and wish Dave and Misty many years of happiness!

Vintage Shanghai Wedding

August 8th, 2014|Bridal Bouquet, Hapuna Prince, Mauna Kea, Orchids, Shanghai Vintage, Wedding|

Our San Diego bride had a very specific look in mind when she described to us the vision for her Vintage Shanghai Wedding.  We scoured the Big Island and were able to source the perfect Vintage Asian decor and furniture to execute the desired atmosphere.  Our lush, richly colored Florals were created to compliment every aspect of this special day, including the beautiful Bride!  It was a joy to Design, Coordinate and provide the Florals for this unique event!

You have heard the phrase, “Destination Wedding…”

August 5th, 2014|Bridal Gown, Ivy and Aster, Wedding|

What about the phrase, “Destination Bridal Gown Shopping?”

At our most recent Ivy and Aster trunk show, we were thrilled to have Hollie from Canada, along with her parents who were visiting from New Zealand.  Because the family used to live on The Big Island in Kona, they each flew here as a meeting place to look for Hollie’s bridal gown…half way point!

Hollie was so lovely and sweet and she selected, ‘Then Came You’, from Ivy and Aster’s 2014 collection.  Hollie then customized the dress to make it the perfect gown.  We were excited to have been a small part of this beautiful Canadian Wedding!
