We've been published!

Two exciting things happenned while we were on vacation.

First, one of the wedding that we did floral design for (Holly + Nathan) was featured on Style Me Pretty.

Second, I got my newest addition of D Weddings and got to finally view the Real Weddings article on Leslie + Drew. She was one of our brides last fall. We planned her wedding and did the floral design. Exciting!!

Weddings: Ashley + Brian
The Dallas Arboretum Camp House

Ashley's wedding was the first weekend in May, which was the weekend of torrential rain downpouring in Dallas. Needless to say, her garden wedding got moved inside. :( Lucky for her, it was moved into the beautiful Camp House where her reception was going to be held. The ceremony turned out wonderful, and Ashley and Brian had the best attitudes throughout the entire day.

We were blessed to help with the floral design and the "day of" wedding coordination for this event. Check out these great shots from Andrea Polito Photography:

Weddings: Blaire + Zack
The Four Seasons

Blaire had a gorgeous, simple morning wedding at the Four Seasons followed by a great brunch. We were delighted to be able to do the floral design for her wedding. Her style was for everything to be if it was straight out of a garden. I think we accomplished this using hydrangea, dahlias, scabiosa, calla lilies and peonies.

Thanks to Jenny Martell for these pics:

Out of Office!

The A Stylish Soiree offices will be completely closed starting June 18, 2009 and returning on June 29, 2009. We are taking off a little time to gear up for a busy fall wedding season and spend some much needed time with family.

Unfortunately, we will not have access to email or phone while we are gone. If you need something, please leave a voicemail or send us an email. We will get back with you when we return!

Thanks, and I hope everyone is having a great summer.

Weddings: Amanda + Chris
The Dallas Arboretum
Johnson Color Garden + Rosine Hall

We have been working so much at the Dallas Arboretum lately, and we are so thankful. It is by far one of our favorite Dallas venues. It is not only beautiful, but the staff is wonderful to work with.

We got the opportunity to do the floral decor and help Amanda plan her beautiful outdoor wedding. She chose bright, vibrant colors of fuschia, purple, and blue. The colors looked beautiful against the natural landscape at the Arboretum. Her wedding turned out amazing.

Shout out to the great vendors who were involved:
DJ and Lighting: Astounding Sounds
Cakes: Dallas Affaires
Photographer: Scott and Tem

Weddings: Sydney + Rob
The Dallas Arboretum
Rodriguez Gazebo + Rosine Hall

Sydney and Rob's wedding was so chic and classic. Her style was simple and sweet. She loved clean lines and modern elements like mixing orchids, hydrangeas and apples in stunning shades of white and green. We had such a great time helping her design the floral design and thought the outcome was stunning. We especially loved her bouquet (one of our favs yet)! Thanks to the bride and groom and their wedding planner, Emily Youngblood, for letting us be a part of this special day!
