Chuppah in black and white

 We designed this wedding in April a few years ago. It is amazing how timeless the color combo of black and white remains. The brides only request was " no roses"- you would be surprised at how many times we hear this.  So yeah for us ,we just used all the other great spring flowers--parrot tulips, anemone, sweet peas, stock and freesia.

The bridesmaids were all were stunning in these black  strapless gowns. The bouquets were very simple, hydrangea with white anemone- I will say I have a love/hate relationship with anemone- when they are gorgeous they are great-- when they are not, they are NOT! Honestly, these photographed much better than I thought- they seemed a little fragile.

This is one of the most exquisite cakes- simple and sophisticated. I am always intrigued by the hexagon shape-- seems so unique.  Here the bridesmaids bouquets were put to good use after the ceremony.

A very simple chuppah. This past year we have designed a few varieties of this Jewish wedding canopy.  It seems they are either are very simple or very ornate-- White fabric, white flowers create the setting for this outdoor ceremony at The Austin Country Club.
