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!

June bouquets

One of the great things about our design staff is the great diversity —
Here are a few bouquets that have hit the door over the past few weeks-
above one of my favorites–all white with pops of yellow–freesia, craspedia for the yellow–peonies, (surprisingly!)
hydrangea and… garden roses–talk about some great fragrance–loved.

Then there was this combination– succulents, scabiosa pods, tweedia, veronica and stock–we couldn’t stop talking about how cute this combination looked–

and this too. It is the bridesmaid to the bouquet above–all in white–stock, veronica, scabiosa, dusty miller and mint–so fresh!

St. Marys Cathedral Wedding!

There is something about a church wedding–maybe the traditions, maybe the built in formality and in this case a
gorgeous setting-the beautiful St. Mary’s Cathedral in Austin, TX.

Another spring bridal bouquet–guess what–all white peonies!! We can’t get enough of them!
Thanks to The Mill, photography studio for the images–
(did you know that is the name of the new collaboration between Melissa Glynn and Tyler Schmitt–2 of Austin’s great photographers joining together!! Good Luck, you guys!)

Winter wedding flowers!

As we hit the dog days of summer, it seems impossible to think of cool, winter weddings!
Heres a reminder from last December–held on the lawn of The Four Seasons hotel-a simple color palette of navy blue and cream with just a pop of red berries!

Bridesmaids carried antique green hydrangea, cream roses, red berries and touch of light blue delphinium.

Very simple centerpieces following the theme mostly cream with a touch of red, red tulips, red votives accented with the navy napkins.

The room featured a combination of tall and low centerpieces–

Sunday morning at Green Pastures

An absolute adorable bouquet of ranunucla and tulips with lots of other stuff– for a Sunday morning wedding at Green Pastures-looks like, feels like spring!

The bride collected all of the vessels for the arrangements-and an assortment it was-filled with sweet flowers and foliages.

The porch–last year we had a wedding that used this same idea–brilliant-brunch on Sunday morning at Green Pastures, is there anything more Austin?
