Weddings: Tara + Chris
St. Patrick Catholic Church + The Old Red Museum

It was a joy working with Tara and Chris. We truly had a blast planning their wedding and getting to do their flowers. They are a fun loving couple who had a stressful planning experience...let's just say there was a move from NYC to San Francisco which included job changes and much stress for the bride and groom! But, everything went great and the night was a great success! We loved mixing Tara's colors of red and green with organic, sophisticated decor and details! Thanks for letting us be a part of your big day. Shout out to a great mother of the bride, Annette and great sister of the bride, Jenna too!

Her photographer was Stacy Cross out of Austin. She was amazing. She also used the lovely Kate Medford of Juxtapose Photography out of McKinney as her second shooter. So these are a collection from both photographers images:

Chris isn't a cake eater, so we did make a late night run to Coldstone to get his favorite ice cream concoction. The employess did look at us a little funny when I told them it was for a wedding reception! Gotta do what you gotta do!

Trendsetters: Show Your Holiday Spirit

There are a lot of brides that choose to get married around the holidays, and I think a holiday palette of red and green can be totally stylish. It is such a cost effective way to get married because most ceremony and reception venues are already decorated with garlands, wreaths, and trees. You can mold your palette around those same ideas and themes, but keep it chic and stylish.

Weddings: Shelli + Charlie
Their Backyard

Shelli was such a special client. She is fabulous woman who is a breast cancer survivor and is grateful for every moment she is given. She loves life and she wanted to live it up by throwing a great dinner party wedding to marry the man of her dreams. I got the opportunity to help her plan her wedding and do the floral. I have two words to describe this amazing wedding: Southern Living. It truly was an amazing affair.

Thanks to Vanessa with Wisner Photo for these pics:

Weddings: Shannon + Brendan
St. Thomas Aquinas + Park Cities Hilton

Shannon was such a super sweet client. Her colors of navy and light pink were very chic and classic. They contrasted each other very nicely. She wanted everything to be very gardeny and lush and we pulled it off mixing roses, dahlias, peonies, and ranunculus. Thanks for letting us be a part of your day!

We got these images from her photographer's blog, KJ Images:

Trendsetters: Going Green

Okay, so I know that "green" and "eco chic" weddings have been popular for a while. But, lately I have been enamored with not just "green" weddings but everything in an organic palette. I am loving mixing whimsical moss with other organic elements such as poppy pods, ferns, and lotus pods. Also, mixing all shades of green. It is just so stunning, whether you are in a crisp white tent or in a modern hotel.

Weddings: Kaylen + Nick
Christ the King + The Old Red Museum

I was blessed to work with Kaylen and Nick for the entire planning process of their wedding. We had such a great time. Kaylen and I really worked hard to develop a unique color scheme and priceless details for her wedding. I definitely think we did that using lots lighting from Absolute Lighting and fabulous linens from BBJ Linen. A couple of details pictured below are their "Something Blue" shot and the Whataburger that we gave guests as they left the party. Of course we did the flowers as well, and they turned out fabulous.

Thanks to Cristina Wisner for these great shots below!! I think the first shot explains how the reception went: ultimate party :)

Weddings: Gillette + Zack
The Dallas Arboretum

It was a pleasure working with Gillette and her wedding planner Paige Chenault to help create her perfect wedding day. Her style was traditional in flowers but modern in the way that she wanted them arranged. We created interesting arrangements using a mixture of square glassware with ball-shaped arrangements and flowers adorning them! It was a lot of fun.

Thanks to Cesar and Tanya Perez with Perez Photography for these pics:

Weddings: Jennifer + Josh
Oaklawn United Methodist + The Texas Discovery Gardens

Jennifer was such a fun bride! She had great taste, and a very clear picture of what she wanted her wedding flowers to look like. She wanted branches, rich fall colors, and something different and eclectic. We helped her streamline her ideas and come with some amazing decor that was fun, funky, and eye-catching.

Thanks to Cesar and Tanya with
Perez Photography for capturing these FABULOUS shots for us. We *heart* them!

Weddings: Amy + Israel
The Empire Room

We recently got the chance to do the flowers for Amy and Israel's wedding. Her colors were deep purples infused with a touch of pink and bright orange. We acheived the look using dark purple hydrangea, roses, callas, and orchids.

We haven't seen all the reception photos yet, but I snagged a few photos from the photographer's blog. Thanks to Ashley Langford for these pics:

Weddings: Amanda + Tim
First United Methodist Church Dallas + The Adolphus Hotel

Amanda and her mother, Trish, were such a blessing to work with. We got to do the "day of" coordination for the bride and take on her flowers. Amanda had the style of a princess wanting to mix shiny "bling" with shades of soft lavender. We pulled it off with success using lilac hydrangea, orchids, stephanotis and lots of hanging chandelier crystals. The wedding turned out fabulous and was a party to remember. Thanks for letting us be a part of it all. Oh...and check out the last picture of the coolest groom's cake ever!

Thanks to Mike and ReJana from BluDoor Studios for these fabulous pictures:

Trendsetters: Seeing Gray

I keep hearing that the new black for the season is gray. You might think that gray would be very drab for a cheerful wedding. But, it is actually quite chic. I did a bit of research, and I truly do see the color gray popping up all over the runways and in wedding trends for Fall 2008. Move over black...brides are seeing GRAY!

Weddings: Gina + Ward
The Church at Horseshoe Bay + Yacht Club at
The Horseshoe Bay Resort

We had the pleasure of planning and doing the flowers for Gina and Ward's wedding on Lake LBJ in Horseshoe Bay, Texas this past summer. We are so excited about the pictures, and I might have posted too many below...but there were so many great details. Ward is in the local Dallas band called
Boys Named Sue, and music played a huge influence on their wedding. We hired Billy Joe Shaver to play at the reception, and he was amazing! Other details to note: the theme of the event was love birds as you can see below. And, check out their favors (custom koozies).
It was so much fun! An event that we will never forget.

Thanks to
Diana Lott for the great pictures.
