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:
