For Beth, the owner and lead floral designer of Blush Floral Design Studio, including her favorite flower—café au lait dahlias—was a must. "The season is fairly short, so I basically chose our wedding date based around this flower!" says Beth, who wore a Monique Lhuillier gown. The bloom was ubiquitous throughout the midsummer affair and was featured prominently in her bouquet, as well as in the ceremony arrangements. Even the invitations by Lucky Luxe featured a dahlia motif.

The evening ceremony was held in the vineyard at Jonathan Edwards Winery. Afterward, the couple's 140 guests headed to cocktail hour, held under a nearby oak tree, before moving to the tented reception. The couple planned their wedding with help from Jubilee Events. The floral design was a collaboration between Beth and Hana Floral Design. "I wrote the 'recipes,' and their staff made my vision come to life," says Beth.
