Throwback Thursday – Robyn and John’s Backyard Wedding
For #tbt we wanted to showcase Robyn and John’s backyard wedding from 2011 and say Happy Anniversary!
Their wedding featured spray roses, ranunculus and soft greens – and the color palette was PINK!
“Think Anthropologie” said Robyn, and we were in love. They ate chocolate dipped strawberries in the harbor after their ceremony and laughed the whole day!
The reception took place in Robyn’s parents backyard. It was mostly a homemade affair; Robyn made felt flower boutonnieres for John and the TEN groomsmen and strung together paper dot streamers for the ring exchange.
She chose hobnail glasses and mason jars for the centerpieces and asked for cake toppers for their “bake sale” inspired dessert table.
Robyn and John, we hope you are just as happy today as you were three years ago. We were so honored to make your wedding day gorgeous.

Feeling Drought Intolerant?
With the current drought emergency declared by governor Jerry Brown, Californians everywhere are taking shorter showers, watching their sprinklers, and holding back from hosing down driveways…and we’re glad to hear it!
We here at The Ranch have always been on a mission to conserve water — both with our in-house garden and our drought-friendly designs.
In fact, over the years, Clover’s many drought-conscious arrangements have been a big hit with our clients. Inspired by sustainable design practices, many of these arrangements feature an array of beautiful greens and succulents, dried ingredients, and gorgeous native California flowers.
The other thing about these arrangements: They last a really long time and they don’t drink too much…unlike some flowers we know!
BizBash and LA Times have both taken note of these Dandelion Ranch originals and our careful approach to water. Thanks guys!
Water conservation isn’t a new trend, it’s a lifestyle that we should all follow. For a list of ways you can help, read HERE…and HERE.
