Smilax foliage accented oversized candles on altar table.

Winter wedding at Canyonwood Ridge

Lush foliages, warm candles and a bride wearing a blush wedding gown, equal perfect elements for a winter wedding. Although, this day was a rainy, drizzly day,  seeing all these warm smiles you would never know that was the case.  With the chapel at Canyonwood Ridge as the backdrop ( it was always the choice), followed by a festive reception in the ballroom.  Selecting a venue with a great A or B plan helps keep a peace of mind during the planning process.   Lush, cascading foliages on the existing chandeliers  and added at the ceremony table helped bring the outdoors in- candles and greenery were the brides main focus with florals added to the most important places.

The luxurious cascading foliage is “southern smilax”, it is foraged from tree canopies and most recently has become a favorite amongst floral designers for the lush coverage it provides.  And yes, it does have a season, mostly available July through early April, depending upon spring weather conditions it can be available during May. In my professional opinion, I do not think there is a great substitution for its particular qualities, there are many, many other foliages available , but this one has some particular qualities that has skyrocketed its popularity- size/color/fullness/ length! Although it is greenery and it is “affordable”, it is the installation of it that sometimes surprises brides and grooms ( and their families).  This particular chapel requires an oversized ladder to even get to the light fixtures and then the designer to do their magic.  A professional floral designer will help make your wedding designs come true as we execute your ideas into reality!

Circle of Love (arbor)

The circle arbor creates a perfect ceremony ( and later a great cake backdrop) setting for this outdoor summer wedding at The Allan House. Located in the heart of Austin, a charming courtyard for both the ceremony and reception. Loved the sweet flower crowns for the bridesmaids along with the lush foliages and blush blooms.

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!

Simple Southern Summer wedding

Summer weddings.  This southern soiree at The Plantation House was filled with sweet smelling peonies  and the most delicious looking popcorn bar. Two of my personal favorites!  The mock orange blossoms on the gazebo ended up being one of the favorite gazebo decors to date. Mock orange is one of those elements that is in season for about 7 minutes, so when we are lucky enough to find in our suppliers inventory  and had a perfect place for it- score and score!

Bouquet of blush flowers.

Winter wedding filled with blush blooms and greenery

Lush blush blooms and miles of smilax greenery helped us bring this gorgeous brides vision to reality.  A perfect blush wedding gown  and an absolutely gorgeous February afternoon allowed the flowers to take center stage.  We headed out to Ma Maison, with Pearl Events to design one of our favorite 2016 events.  Some of the details included beautiful crystal candelabras,  a gorgeous head table and the staircase draped in smilax.  All the small details helped make this event near perfect- the olive branches at each place setting and the fragrant garden roses were some of the favorites.

Peony filled outdoor wedding on Lake Travis!

Peonies! Outdoor ceremony! Classic Bride! Gorgeous details!

All of these things add up to a pretty, floral filled outdoor wedding at Villa Del Lago!  Add in, the bride and her sister are behind The Chic Burrow blog and you know it will be a style filled event.  The absolute highest complement we can receive is when a family asks  us to work on another daughters wedding! Thank you for trusting us x2. Outdoor weddings present their own set of challenges- weather.  Luckily for us, the weather broke on Saturday morning to provide a gorgeous,  warm afternoon.  With the guidance of Pearl Events, the delicious food from Austin catering and these stunning images from SMS photography, it was a rock solid vendor team.  Now, to the floral details- peonies and blush garden roses took center stage in the  bouquets and willow arch.  Our favorite elements were the sign in table featuring natural elements  of grape wood, mosses, succulents and tillandsias and  the seating assignment frame covered in the same organic elements.  Enjoy! and congratulations to Haley and Winston!

Summer wedding filled with blush blooms.

Summer weddings.  This gorgeous  wedding took place in The Vistas Ballroom at Lakeway Resort and Spa.  Overlooking Lake Travis, without being in the hot Texas sun! We designed and constructed a gorgeous arbor with fabric draping and floral details for the ceremony, after the ceremony, it became the backdrop for the cake.

It was filled with shades of blush and  lush seasonal blooms.  Gold accents, candles and petals helped round out the floral details.

Winter wedding @ The Heritage House

A romantic winter wedding.  Maybe its the early sunsets, the use of candles or the soft pastel tones that make winter weddings feel just a little more romantic.

This one was of my favorites from 2015. Soft pastel roses, hints of dusty miller  and the floral embellished cross.

Romantic blush and mint wedding at Barton Creek Country Club.

Spring time weddings are always a breath of fresh air.  We have survive our version of winter and looking forward to seeing a variety of seasonal blooms.  This romantic, elegant wedding was the perfect backdrop for a sweet vision of blush, green and white.  I loved the lace bridesmaids dresses along with the collection of all white blooms.  Some of our favorite details– the stunning, and I do mean stunning floral cross at the ceremony!, the gorgeous cake from The Cake Plate and the collection of tall and candle centerpieces.  A great collaboration with Barbara from Barbara’s Brides, JennLindberg photography and Barton Creek Country Club.
