redwoods, romance, butterflies, whimsy and impeccable taste

Megan Collins is the name of the bride, and the mastermind of this wedding that we did on April 30th, 2016 at the Henry Miller Library.  Together with Lolo from Burst and Bloom doing the florals and us at Stardust doing all the rentals, pre-planning, day of coordination and set up, it was a dream partnership.


Megan’s vision was of a woodland wonderland, with a bounty of beautiful blooms and greenery, mixed with handmade decorations for the tables from carved wood and meticulously handmade mushrooms and butterfly sculptures.

Our handmade ceramic plates, floral vessels and brass candlesticks and a flood of candlelight made the evening truly shine with a warmth that had everyone there feeling like they were in a dream that they never wanted to end.
