Late Summer Blooms

We were so thankful to be featured in Utterly Engaged with Mariel Hannah in September! Excerpt written by us below from our feature! Enjoy!
“Summer is going to be over in a few weeks, but the florals of the summer season are still abundant and are blooming in full force! Mint Design and Mariel Hannah Photography came together on a lovely Saturday afternoon, for a floral session in California to play, arrange and photograph their favorite flowers for September. And lucky for us, they are sharing with us what they created today. The blooms they used were fuchsia spray roses, bougainvillea, pink snap dragon, cream carnations, peach spray roses, fresh garden roses, violet globe amaranth and orange pin cushions. They snipped the blooms and arranged them in various types of vessels such as vintage brass, colored glass and milk glass. And lastly, they paired it and filled it with eucalyptus, evergreen foliage, pepper berry, wisteria and hanging green amaranthus. The florals came together so perfectly, creating a romantic and whimsical feel.” -Lotta, Owner of MINT DESIGN

Dreaming of Peonies 100 Layer Cake Feature

Check out our dreamy styled shoot that was featured on 100 Layer Cake a few months back. We assure you it will get you dreaming of a soft summer day!

“For this dreamy styled bridal shoot, we were infludenced by soft tones, nature and lots of peonies! A swing suspended in the trees draped with a tulle veil flowed in the wind. The brides’ bridal bouquet had a natural freshly picked vibe made of fresh yellow garden roses; pink, cream and blush peonies, finished with foraged wisteria and jasmine. Gold candelabras, handmade antique furniture and dreamy sunlight made for a mystical ambiance. Our candid kitten moments were too sweet to pass up! This little kitten, who we named Khalessi wondered into our photoshoot and soon grew into our hearts and our home!” A word from Planner/Designer- Lotta from MINT DESIGN

Sneak peeks of Alissa and Neil’s Engagement Party!


, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

This engagement party was such a fabulous event! Alissa (the bride) reached out to us shortly after she got engaged, feeling very excited to start planning her engagement party. She found us on instagram and it was a true match! Her girly glitz and glamour showed through the entire planning process. We were drawn to golds, creams, pink & blush tones for all the decor. The florals were romantic but we kept them fun and flirty with pops of pink garden roses and whimsy greenery. This is just the sneak peak so stay tuned for more photos soon!

Nautical Americana Styled Bridal Shoot

We hope everyone had a safe and fun Fourth of July weekend! We wanted to end this patriotic weekend with a post featuring photos from our Nautical Americana Styled Bridal Shoot in Newport Beach! MINT DESIGN had the pleasure of working with the talented Taylor Cole of Taylor Cole Photography!

For this styled bridal shoot we wanted to incorporate the classic Americana vibes infused with beach elements to create a unique look. We pulled simple American items such as milk glass vases, blue and white plates, ruby red chalices, cracker jacks, cherries, sparklers, noise poppers and an American flag inspired cake. The classic mixture of red, white and blue was paired with beach tones such as mossy greens, metallic gold’s, dusty navy’s and hints of redwood. Our floor seating tied in a touch of boho along with the funky glass lanterns and shell chandelier. Nautical elements were pulled in using a wooden sailboat wheel, a vintage travel trunk, a typical Newport Beach Duffy boat, the 48-foot ‘Hokulani’ sailboat and the dock as the setting for our reception and sweets display. The florals were over flowing with white peonies, red dahlias, ruby and golden garden roses, mossy green eucalyptus and metallic gold air plants to add an unexpected twist! This intimate elopement inspiration is perfect for the couple that wants to have all the grand wedding details with out the large guest list. Prepare yourself to sail away into this dreamy love story!

What a fun shoot! We teamed up with Taylor Cole Photography for this mod maternity shoot! The shoot took place in Crystal Cove, directly in the middle of Newport and Laguna Beach.

These were paired with florals from Mulberry and Moss, a custom to die for gold cake from Sweet N Saucy Shop, rentals from YEAH!

Mimosa Bar!


, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Summer is here! Time to sit back relax and enjoy the weather! We came up with this fun, festive and colorful mimosa bar that is achievable in minutes. We used the basics; bar cart, diy tassel garland, flowers from the garden, fresh fruit, bubbly and Italian soda! That’s right, Italian soda adds extra fizz and is a spin on the traditional mimosa. Don’t forget to add glitter whenever possible ;) We used an old Goodwill frame and snazzed it up in minutes. Enjoy everyone! Photography Ashley dePencier Photography

Allie and Jan’s Engagement Photos

Our beautiful bride Allie and her handsome groom Jan traveled to Gangnam, Seoul Korea last year for their engagement photos. In Korea it is custom to dress up in numerous bridal gowns for your engagement photos while being pampered by numerous stylists during the 12 hour photography session. Allie was able to pick out two white gowns and one red and one purple gown. She had two assistants that helped scrictly with her gown placement and another assistant that added embellishments to her hair and accesories to her gown. The session started at 4:30 AM with her hair and makeup then they went to a studio to make the magic happen. How chic are our bride and groom? We can’t wait for their September wedding! Enjoy these spectacular photos!10313858_10152318948357891_2570996924727579155_n 11931_10152318947647891_2152297586093706127_n 10300963_10152318947252891_2125415257310460633_n 10167917_10152318948517891_1017856488581680535_n 10253935_10152318947177891_1191336426023896194_n 10264707_10152318947307891_939697605505742075_n 1609943_10152318947972891_320072998612319720_n 1904125_10152318950742891_7735789634323943786_n 10337718_10152318947487891_2035685546492845164_n 1901300_10152318950652891_2246747622450282048_n 10245541_10152318947792891_5029428734719335453_n 1507759_10152318947847891_1037567062073217161_n 10247252_10152318950542891_8837706730747170341_n 10334309_10152318948177891_8250338332713346658_n 10299123_10152318947727891_4521169505823685143_n 10170708_10152318948102891_2132274530004471410_n 1798713_10152318948252891_8468393399265054947_n 10254041_10152318950837891_5843759254492641718_n 10259819_10152318948437891_4866262686871735756_n 10153131_10152318951032891_7016583266343954805_n 10313858_10152318949912891_3910969395485332793_n 10322746_10152318950147891_3333084053928638834_n 10006222_10152318950922891_5547528163289932295_n 10341550_10152318951392891_4904512416659154356_n

This vintage tea party shoot was so much fun to design! We teamed up with Laura from Laura Danielle Photography and Mai from De Coeur Bakeshop to create this nostalgic look. We came up with a new, modern twist on the typical tea party and added elements such as gold pipe cleaner crowns, gold leafed florals, a ballerina on point, over sized flowers, royal crown chairs,  bright macarons and a to die for gold flecked vanilla buttercream cake. Sit back, relax and take a whirl down the rabbit hole!
