Luxurious Head table in Omni Barton Creek ballroom.

Floral filled spring wedding.

When a client loves flowers almost as much as we do, you know it is going to be a  floral filled  affair.  Last spring, we were lucky enough to add this gorgeous event to our portfolio.  A classic bride, one of our favorite venues and a dream team of vendors helped this one go off without a hitch.  The ceremony featured a 9 foot cross covered in white hydrangea, while the aisle was highlighted with a foliage and orchid draped chandelier.  The Pavillion at Omni Barton Creek was also draped exquisitely by the team at Unique Designs.  The reception then moved into the DKR ballroom in the resort.  From the amazing cocktail hour to the festive reception, it was all an amazing event.  All the photos by  Jenny Demarco.

Every single detail was pulled together by Becky at Pearl Events.

We  are sad to see the Pavillion being relocated during Omni Barton Creeks renovations, but can’t wait for the new space to create something equally as gorgeous..coming soon!

Blue weddings

Spring weddings are filled with color, and this one is no exception.  When I hear, my color is blue.. that can and does mean so many things. I loved the way Becca pulled this together, literally with all shades of blue.  The flowers were designed primarily in white with a few coral accents and a few blue strategic placements ( bridal bouquet and brides cake!).  Another element that she loved was jasmine vine, we worked it into as many pieces as possible! This is one of my favorite presentations of blue, in all of the textiles–linens, favors, bridesmaids dresses.  The  outdoor ceremony took place overlooking Lake Travis, a last minute change, once the rain threat passed by– many thanks to Megan and the ladies of Pearl Events for keeping the day running smoothly.

Coral peonies, a choir and an outdoor ceremony!

Outdoor wedding ceremonies and receptions are very, very popular in Austin! Maybe its our awesome weather or maybe it is the variety of great venues that you can select.  This wedding was a fun one to design-after hearing about some of the amazing ideas, I knew it was going to be a great event.  Starting with the choir, the blue grass trio or ready… the original butt sketch–er. Yep, it was going to be fun!   The bride gave me a few inspiration photos and let us do the rest! Enjoy these gorgeous images from Diana Lott photography, planning by  Barbara’s Brides and thanks to the in house team at Nature’s Point.

Gold is on the horizon…

Last fall we headed over to Smith Family Chapel and RiverPlace Country Club with an absolutely gorgeous van full of white flowers for Abby and Nolan.  I am a definite fan of classic and timeless design. We kept the elements simple, pretty white and ivory flowers focusing on white hydrangeas- one of the brides favorite flowers.  They added in the perfect amount of sparkle and detail! Thanks to Stacy at SMS Photography for the gorgeous images.

Pretty In – Traditional – Pink!


I love pink flowers – all of them – especially gorgeous garden roses and ranuncula! Combine these favorites with one of the most traditional wedding flowers of all time – stephanotis – and you have a truly gorgeous, timeless bridal bouquet.

This beautiful bridesmaids bouquet – in shades of pink – complemented the bride
and the navy blue bridesmaids dresses.

This wedding ceremony featured one of my favorite aisle treatments – ombre petals!

Ceremony/Reception: Villa Antonia
Wedding Planner: Barbara’s Brides

Wedding Faves: Oh Juliette!


At Bouquets of Austin, we sure do love our pretty pictures. This is one of our favorites – a beautiful moment captured against a sweeping background. The lawn at the Mansion at Judges’ hill is always a stunning backdrop for some equally spectacular wedding photos.

I absolutely loved this monochromatic color palette of cream and peach – featuring another one of the up and coming favorite garden roses, Juliette. Thanks to the grower, David Austin, garden roses are rapidly rising in popularity and – thankfully – availability!

What’s wrong with this picture?  The bride provided these candles and the planner (from out of town) displayed these on the table without glass covers – not a good idea. This was a Spring wedding a few years ago before our recent string of fires. However, whether there’s a burn ban or not, it is never a good idea to put candles on tables without covers. In this case, the linens were all but ruined from the running wax. The flowers looked awesome but these candles make me grimace every time I see this photo! Moral of the story? Cover those candles!

Its all in the family….

I can’t believe I haven’t blogged any of these photos from Timmy and Whitney’s summer wedding!
This photo just about sums it all up… happy.
I love this idea of petals at the end of the ceremony!

Whit’s bouquet–full of gorgeousness, oh those California flowers are always awesome!
Funny thing, this was attempt number 2– she snuck by our workspace after the rehearsal dinner, but I really didn’t want her to see attempt number one, I thought it was just too big, she is a tiny, tiny girl- before I realize it, she has found the first one and loves it, so I have to break the news that I wil be scaling it down just a bit 🙂

The bridesmaids–full of pink. Seriously, there couldn’t have been too much pink.

And that handsome young man, one of our great nephews.
Thanks to The Grovers for the photos, more on facebook, along with a video–search around September 2011.

Peachy… in the summer.

One of my favorite bouquets (do I say that alot?) from last summer, the long, hot summer…
Our inspiration–Texas peaches-cake had peach flavors, menu included peach items, so of course the flowers had a peachy feel!
A gorgeous combo of garden roses, both the buttermilk and peach tones with one pops of orange!

All the blue mason jars had been collected by the brides mom and added a beautiful accent to all the peach and orange of the flowers.

I loved this cake display–love the unique papers, fruit toppings, and of course the fresh peaches.

Simple, simple arbor.
Thanks to Innovative photography for the great images.
Shout out to Barbara at Barbaras Brides for the connection.

Garden roses, succulents and more….

You just can’t go wrong with gorgeous juliet garden roses ( yummy soft peach), pair that with some fun textural elements–succulents, pods and berries with just a few sentimental orchids thrown in, equals pretty!

The grooms suit–such an interesting color.

Succulent centerpieces in low terra cotta trays on very pretty burlap-esque linens.

Bridesmaids- similar but smaller than the bride.
