Commercial Photo Shoot

The photographer Edward Ramirez,, invited us to his studio to do some commercial work. He specifically asked us to create some unique boutonnieres, bouquets, and centerpieces for him to shoot for a commercial booklet that he was putting together. It gave us a chance to use our creativity and come up with some truly one of a kind pieces.

Take a look:

A bouquet of black magic roses, queen of the night lilies, red mokara orchids, and a mixture of faux bronze beads.

A quirky little boutonniere with a red mokara orchid, green button mums, and a brown monkey's tail. The upside down shot makes it look like a work of art!

The AMAZING tree. We hand painted this tree chocolate brown and used hydrangeas, ranunculus, and orchids to give it a punch of color.

A simple pink calla lily with touches of faux green beads.

This a close-up shot of a bark pot that we made by hand. We filled it with garden flowers such as lilac spray roses, deep purple lisianthus, rosemary, and buplerum.

A peacock feather is the main accent of this boutonniere that is made of a white dendrobium orchid with faux purple berries.

Cymbidium green orchids, white denrobium orchids, pink spray roses, and white chrysanthemums add a unique texture to this bouquet.
This bouquet is a cheerful mixture of orange sunrise calla lilies, orange ranunculus, green button mum, orange spray roses, and white dendrobium orchids.

Amanda Swanson & David Johnson
St. Thomas Aquinas & Dallas Heritage Village

Amanda came to us with an amazing theme of a laid back reception with style. She wanted country music, chic BBQ, and a fun, memorable event. She definitely achieved that in the Pavilion at Dallas Heritage Village. Our main obstacle with the theme of the event is that Amanda wanted paper lanterns hanging from the 25-40 ft. ceilings of the reception hall. After many hours of labor...we got those lanterns hung, and they were the hit of the reception. Her flowers were an amazing mixture of pink peonies, pink cymbidium orchids, light pink ranunculus, & deep purple mini callas. Her bouquet consisted of the same mixture except in ivory tones. Her wedding was beautiful! Thanks for including us, Amanda.

Her photographer was Brooks Whittington.

Melissa Abbott and Wes McFarland

Christ Church Plano & Stonebriar Country Club

Melissa came to us asking us to help her plan an elegant wedding. Her inspirations were chocolate brown, sky blue, champagne, and the ever classic Audrey Hepburn. The event went off without a hitch and was "simply elegant." We grew very close with this family and will hold them near and dear to our hearts. Her flowers were a combination of calla lilies, garden spray roses, & camel roses. Her bridesmaids had a "vintage" look combining sahara roses, light blue hydrangea, leonidas roses, touches of bells of ireland, & soft, fuzzy lamb's ear. It was truly a beautiful night to remember.

Her photographer was her brother and he did a great job. Jeff Abbott of Abbott Photography.
