Amy Talkington and Robert Adams
Savage Park & the Bride's grandparent's home on Swiss Avenue

Amy is an independent filmmaker, and Robbie does sound production for such bands as U2. They have amazing careers, and their wedding was equally wonderful. Their wedding reflected their artistic side, and it was a perfect night for the newly married couple. This is an amazing story...they both currently live in LA, but Amy is from Dallas and Robbie is from Ireland. They chose to get married in a park that was named after Amy's grandparents (Savage Park) and then parade down the street to Irish music to the reception venue. The reception venue happenned to be a home in the historical Swiss Avenue district of Dallas that used to belong to her grandparents. Her mother is currently living there. A wonderful sit down dinner was planned in the backyard using a collection of family china under a clear tent. There was so much personalization put into was fabulous. We are so thankful to have been able to help plan this wedding and do the flowers. We could go on for pages about this event, but we won't...check out the pictures instead. Also check out several posts below this one to see the article about this wedding in the NY Times!!!

The photographer was Jake Holt out of Austin The pictures are so great!

Corey Fuller and Brandon Thompson
The Texas Discovery Gardens

Corey and Brandon had the ultimate garden wedding. We planned this entire event and did the floral design! Corey came to us with specific details and ideas, and we tweeked some of those ideas to make them a reality. The whole event had the theme of black, white, green...polka dots and circles. The ceremony was set up to represent the unbroken circle that is the love of marriage, friends, and family. We included such details as an old fashioned Coke Bar, cookies and milk, a very detailed menu with a famous Sangria recipe from a friend and the groom's guacamole recipe! It was a fantastic event!

Her photographers were Engaged Studio They did an amazing job!

I went a little overboard posting pictures of this wedding, but there was so much detail to capture! Take a look:

Angelica Toth and Jessie Salom
Perkins Chapel & The Peacock Terrace at the Anatole

Angelica was a girl that wanted her wedding to emit timeless elegance. She had a simple vision in her head of using candlelight and black magic roses to create an elegant wedding. We helped her streamline this idea by suggesting to make the ceremony all white and the reception all red. It added a touch of modern to her day. We did this using roses, calla lilies, orchids, and lots of pearl details. We also created a custom candlelight centerpiece using initialed vases. They turned out amazing.

Her photographer was Marcus Revilla of San Antonio

Check out some of her pictures!

Jessica Chapman and Ben Newell
The Rotunda at JP Morgan Chase

Jessica came to us knowing exactly what she wanted: something modern, clean, bright, and untraditional. She was an untraditional fact, she didn't even have a wedding cake!! Instead, she served Paciugo italian ice cream to all her guests. How fun is that? We rose to the challenge and met her needs using hot pink roses, orange celosia, orange pincushion protea, green monkey's tail, hot pink gloriosa lilies, orange calla lilies, and orange dendrobium orchids. Sounds like a lot, but it all came together to create something unique, tropical, and unforgettable.
Check out some of her pictures below!

What an amazing shot of her bouquet!
