Little Flower School Love Shoot

Back in May, I had the pleasure of being a guest at the Little Flower School at Garden Valley Ranch, a gorgeous rose farm in Petaluma, California. Jen Huang was along to capture the beauty of the day, and as an extra bonus, one lucky couple won the chance to model for a bridal shoot, complete with flowers by Saipua and Nicolette Camille.

The day started with a tour of the gardens, followed by lunch at the gazebo, then a flower arranging lesson with Sarah and Nicolette. After attending two of their classes, I have to say that if you’ve never arranged flowers but always wanted to try, the Little Flower School is a great place to start!

Arrangements created by some of the folks attending the class:

When the class had ended, Sarah and Nicolette created a stunning bridal bouquet, elaborate floral headdress, and sweet boutonniere for Judith and Brody, the darling couple who won the photo shoot with Jen. Judith and Brody hadn’t planned to hire a photographer for their own upcoming wedding, so this was the perfect opportunity for them to get some gorgeous photos together.

Congratulations Judith and Brody! And thank you to all of the amazing vendors who brought this lovely day to life…

  • Ugh.. the light and the portraits at the end make me just wanna up and move to Cali. I am soooo jealous… but all that would mean nothing without a awesome photographer.

  • I was fortunate enough to be there for the workshop that day. The roses and other flowers at Hidden Valley Ranch are enchanting. I brought home 3 bushes and they’re entering their second bloom of the summer. Nicolette and Sarah are brilliant, generous, and hilarious. Hidden Valley is like heaven on earth.

  • Gorgeous, I would love to be able to jet over from Ireland and attend a workshop like this! Getting to grips with flowers is definitely on my to do list! Looks like it was a really fun day!
