Spring lilac!

The beautiful purple lilac was absolutely gorgeous this past spring–this is one of those varieties that must be utilized as a seasonal flower–the tulips, lilac, roses,stock and anemone completed this monochromatic bouquet.

The bouquets were used as centerpieces during the reception–I am very mixed on this idea. I’ll elaborate on this more in a future post.

The flowers completed a very monochromatic look with the dresses– I will verify this – but I believe this shade of bridesmaid gown is Lapis.
Thanks to Whitney Lee Photography for the images.

Photo edits.

I couldn’t pass up discussing this bouquet and the post editing.
This is a professional image– it is obvious since they are presented side by side that there has been some color correction.
The bouquet on the left looks more red, the one on the right more burgandy/magenta. Could be the natural light or could be post production–my point–be flexible, be specific but know that sometimes the flower colors in magazines, blogs, albums could be “corrected” to fit in context of the photo–talk to your florist about the reality of a “perfect” match!

Initial craftiness!

A few more images from the magenta and green soiree– specifically these initials–
if you’ve followed along, you know that I am not crafty, at all. Becky said yes to these cute monograms–we are always up for a challenge.
I thought they turned out super cute!
Way to go girls!

They were such I huge hit!–so I could possibly say yes to this in the future:)

Pretty in pink part 2

We don’t see alot of 5 tier wedding cakes, but this one was definitely a show stoppper– I loved the simplicity of it–that is a sweet ruffle detail in the center of each tier –finished with the hydrangea wreath and a few flowers on the top–could be one of my new favorites.

Couldn’t pass up these peonies submerged–even prettier that I thought they would be–they looked like poofs of cotton candy suspended in the water–that sounds very technical:)

And a centerpiece–the pillar candle is lit with an LED, a requirement for this venue–

Pretty in pink!

On a recent rainy Friday, Amanda ( one of our rockstar designers!) put this beautiful fountain display together–
I absolutley loved the final product– all things pretty in pink, peonies, hydrangea, roses and petals accented with a few candles.
As the evening progressed it was a beautiful focal point to an otherwise plain fountain.

A few of the flowers nestled around the dolphins on all sides.

It all in the details–thanks for the inspiration–
It was a thrill to open the door and see your creation–I know that our sweet bride Katy also loved it!

Summertime orange part 2

Amazing cake– a lush garland of orange orchid blooms — cascading down both sides of the cake—wow!
This table was in the center of the room –makes a statement.

The tables featured these tall submerged orchids and also a low bowl of mango calla lilies–the lighting in this room is awesome!

A fun little lounge area–all the colors repeating from the dresses to the flowers to the linens to the lighting–

Summer time orange!

I love opening my inbox and getting a portfolio of photos from a wedding past–in this case last summer!
Thanks Barbara for forwarding these to me via Ashley Garmon.

The ceremony took place at The Smith Family Chapel (Riverbend) with the reception at Barton Creek Country Club.
I loved, loved the presentation of the bridesmaids dresses– so sweet and summery–all in a shade of champagne, not sure if they are the same designer or if the girls got to choose-but super adorable!

The bouquets were a combination of circus roses and orange orchid blooms–sweet and simple– when the dresses are short and flirty the flowers should reflect the same feel! More later…..

Blue bouttonieres!

For the boys– we love simple,unique bouttonieres.
Here one of our all time favorites–a white dendrobium bloom and blue hybrid delphinium .

Each bouttoniere hand crafted and finished with a little rafia wrap.
Did you know that every flower and leave that goes into a bouttoniere has to be hand wired and taped individually and then put together?

Purple to go!

Purple has been and will be popular for a while–this was a spring wedding earlier this year-
I loved the combination of purple flowers– orchids, lisianthus, stock and sweet peas.

How great is this suit? I did not see this in person–our bride and groom chose to have the flowers picked up from our studio on the day of the wedding. This can sometimes be an option depending upon the scope of the event–in this case, personal flowers and 5 centerpieces.

Congratulations to a super cute couple and thanks to MatthewJohnson studios for the images!
