Adrienne and Cameron's downtown Los Angeles wedding was full of modern details at every turn. But the best part has to be the quirky purple alliums — called purple sensations — used in the ceremony flower box. Fun fact: Purple sensations are plant cousins with onion, garlic and leeks! Florist Clover Chadwick at Dandelion Ranch and planner Cassandra Santor from It's Your Beautiful Day created a hanging ceremony backdrop at the Maguire Gardens with windows and flower boxes filled with dahlias and scabiosa. At the reception at the adjoining Cafe Pinot, architectural floral centerpieces lined the tables and pretty bistro lights lit up the outdoor dance floor.
