The Winfield Inn Full of color

I thought I would include a photo of parents– this bride’s mom chose to carry a
“tuzzy muzzy” – which is a small collection of flowers ; instead of wearing a corsage either pinned on or on her wrist–neither would have worked with this dress selection– so moms, there is another option!

This is always one of my favorite images– you can hardly tell that is had been pouring rain minutes before these photos were taken– the team at The Winfield Inn were squeegy-ing, blowing and overall drying out the entire place to make this wedding happen outdoors-exactly what the bride had envisioned!

The flowers included a very specific color range selected by the bride–purple,orange,red and a touch of green–I’ve talked about it before but I absolutely love colored bridal shoes.

A few sentimental broaches added for something old,something borrowed….

Sweets for the season

This has always been one of my favorite cakes- hexagon tiers with just a simple cake top–a small bouquet with cascading ribbon streamers. Classic.

A little more modern– orange on a wedding cake, finished with a few open rose blooms and the orange scroll dancing on alternated square tiers.

Red and orange rose bouquets finishing the cake area.

Another show stopper by Simon Lee bakery– the flowers were minimal but the perfect addition of color to complement the ribbon border.

Winter lights

We created this ceremony area this past January — it was planned to be an indoor event with a candlelit ceremony. I love, love this lighting effect–not only does it look romantic,it provides some great light for the photos–

A very classic red rose bouquet– the bride had some gorgeous black detailing on her gown.

A dramatic presentation of black and red– with the lights on –this room had some great lighting effects for the dinner hour.

Just waiting for the bride and groom!

Happy Holiday parties!

Along with our weddings, we also design some spectacular parties (especially during the holiday season)
This was a recent party–it was billed as A Dazzling Evening!
The gold,blingy manzanita tree welcomed the guests.

There were a few different areas– this was a set of ultra cool and chic lounge furniture that became the center of the room!

One of the selections for centerpieces–tall, gold and blingy– my photos do not show the cool lighting in this room–it would be going from a cool blue to a soft amber as the evening progressed.
Thanks, Meghan for letting us be a part of your Dazzling Evening!

The many personalities of purple

I absolutely love this bouquet of fuschia and purples — hydrangea, orchids,miniature calla lilies and stock round out this selection.

The bridesmaids wore a vibrant shades of purple– I can’t remember the exact shade? but the green flowers are a perfect complement–they had a few Jade Siam orchids-the green with dark plum throat.Color combinations that originate in nature are always winners!

Perfect Petals for the exit.
Thanks to SMS Photography for the images.

What we’ve been up to!

Not lounging around on this cool furniture!! This was brought into one of our parties a couple of weekends ago–I though it was super cool and chic–but back to us!!
Besides being named a “Best Of” pick from the The Knot (shameless plug!)- we’ve been remodeling and reorganizing!! Our consultation room has fresh paint and new furniture and our lobby is packed with fabulous new photos ! After all that fun was done we completely reorganized our back warehouse–if you’ve never been to our space we have a cozy front office/lobby and consultation area–then we have our back warehouse where all the real fun happens–it is home to our walk in cooler, reach in coolers and our extensive inventory along with all of our design stations. We, the entire group, spent 2 days moving, counting, dusting, and editing every piece and I must say it looks great–it is effecient, spacious and organized–hopefully we will keep it this way!!!

The new edition of The Knot- Texas has hit the newstands— we have a very nice feature from Stephanie and Jeremy’s wedding this past April at Hamilton 12!

Also, we–Bouquets of Austin has received a “Best Of” pick– this is a great honor, as it is an editorial award that is chosen from brides reviews.
