Flowers at Los Willows

About 130 million years ago, plants evolved and produced seeds. These little seeds weren’t just the most influential part of evolution, they were the beginning to a beautiful world blanketed with ferns, trees and blooms of flowers; A world full of color pallets, textures and smells.

At Los Willows Private Estate, we know flowers can be one of the most important focal points to your wedding starting from table arrangements to bouquets to the overall décor, flowers can hold a very unique meaning for you. Maybe it’s the beloved flower of a loved one who has passed that you wish to add to your arrangements as a reminder that they are present on your special day. Or perhaps a bouquet made with the flowers your betrothed gifted to you on the day of your engagement.

Whether it’s a favorite color you want to include, a tribute to your ancestry or the the flowers of the season, our  venue is capable of providing the perfect canvas for a beautiful, garden-fresh, romantic style wedding. Here are some great suggestions.

Ceremony flowers

The wedding Arbor sitting on Los Willows’ property is the perfect backdrop to any flower arrangement you choose. Timeless and classic colors like White and Green, are told to be the symbol of new beginnings and you can accomplish this style by placing round bouquets of white Carnations and Eucalyptus on the Arbor and Pillars at our Lake side Ceremony location.

To create a celestial or woodland vibe, add an array of wild flowers to your wedding arch in our lush green Meadow Location. Pictured below is an eclectic arrangement of Red and Coral Roses, White Anemone, and an orange tulip or two. The stand out flower is the cactus looking flower in the upper left hand corner of the arch known as the Red King Protea. The King Protea is South Africa’s National flower and can come in an array of colors.

Our 6 inch Svorsky Crystal Chandelier is breathtaking on its own, but adding some pink and white hand tied, round, rose bouquets to lace or silk curtains is a firm winner.

With 55 acres of private breathtaking views and landscapes, whether it be a rustic-chic, vintage, intimate or an extravagant affair, our outdoor spaces will absolutely transform your dream wedding into your reality. Let Los Willows be your Fairytale venue and host you and your guests at one of our fabulous three ceremony sites.

If you’re imagining a rustic-chic or vintage affair, you can line your aisle with Shepard columns in which you can hang any type of floral arrangement you wish. Mason Jars or lanterns are also a flattering touch.

Or take a steer towards the nautical route and add a hanging, handmade ship wheel from our arbor. With the hanging lanterns and and starlight draping, you can only imagine the ambience is magical to say the least.

The Glimmering Gazebo

The Wedding Bell is ringing! Picture yourself walking down elegantly draped columns leading up to a romantic gazebo tied in with a glimmering chandelier overlooking our spring fed Lake. Make it even more intimate and drape the elegant white columns with champagne colored sashes and line the aisles with your favorite floral arrangements. The little details can add so much personality to your ceremony and there are endless options available for your unique tastes.

These are a Few of our Favorite Things: A Look Back at some of our memorable weddings

As the New Year approaches, we are vigorously getting ready to welcome our new couples here at Los Willows. It’s been a joy to see the happiness and togetherness our venue has brought to many families and friends and we are always so grateful to be a part of it.

As visions of sugar plums dance in our heads, we can’t help but to reflect on some of our favorite things from years past.

Live Event Artist

Voted the Best Wedding Idea of 2017, a Live Event Artist adds such a unique flare and is so personal to your unique taste that it is one of our favorite wedding ideas as well.

Two hours before your ceremony, the Live Event Artist will arrive and start to get the feel for the ambiance of your event. The Artist will then begin to paint his or her portrayal of your wedding and capture the true essence of the two of you. As the day progresses, your guests will be entertained by the live show and the evolution of your beautiful painting.

Heart Framed Wedding Guest Book

Meghan and Peter’s wedding guestbook table really caught our hearts. Instead of a guestbook with signatures that will be stored away out of view, your guests will sign a cut-out heart and place it in a large frame to be kept as a keepsake.

Heart Framed Wedding Guest Book

Later, you can display it in your home and have it to always remember your loved ones that came to celebrate your big day.

The Cinderella Carriage

With the clip-clop of horse Hooves and the birds chirping, let Los Willows be the soundscape to your dream wedding.

Every time we see a bride lit up by a Cinderella, horse drawn carriage, we can’t help but to feel like a bunch of Fairy God Mothers.

Horse And Carriage

Rent a beautiful Cinderella carriage to transport you to your ceremony and you will feel as though all your wishes have come true. Check out our bride from one of our favorite weddings. She was an absolute princess!!

These are just a few of our favorite things we were able to share with you. Keep following our blog posts weekly to discover all the wonderful and exciting things Los Willows Private Events Venue has to offer.
