Texas Old Town in the fall!

Just received these photos from the mother of the bride from a wedding last November.
This is Texas Old Town in Kyle, Tx--it has a definite elegant rustic feel.
The out door area features a large open air pavillion-- the bride chose all fuschia flowers to complement the teal/turquoise gowns and to complement her sash.

The tall pieces were a combination of curly willow and orchids accented with candles.

The low pieces featured miniature fuschia calla lilies and candles-- the ribbon was the perfect match to the bridesmaids dresses.
Thanks for sharing the photos.

Coral part 2

Last spring, this bouquet featured some of the first peonies that we received! This is one of my favorite bouquets of spring flowers-tulips,peony, stock, roses-all white!

The bridesmaids bouquets landed on the beverage station for the reception--a change from the "normal" cake table placement.

The butter colored stock accented with the ambience roses and finished with coral gerbera daisy and hypericum berries.

Boys and girls together!

Coral- what shade are you?

Flowers can be a great complement to a simple cake--the square cake has turned into a classic style.

Coral -- it is defined in so many shades--this is the one color that we insist on a swatch or paper swatch-I have seen it range any where from this muted shade to a brighter shade of almost red/orange.

The chairs have simple adornments--ribbons and flowers.

A cake with peonies at The Driskill

One of my favorite cakes from last spring-- so unusual, the different proportions,the henna pattern all executed beautifully by the pastry chef at The Driskill hotel.

A cake top of light pink peonies--sometimes simple is best.

One of my favorite photos --classic and timeless!

Green for the spring!

I love green--all things green! This fondant ribbon on the cake was perfect, I love the different patterns on each layer.
The green spiders were a great compliment.

The bridal bouquet was filled with green, orange and yellow. I loved the mix of the these colors, just feels like spring.

Another church arrangement--I like to show different pieces from a single wedding so that you can see how it all relates to each other.

Wintery white

This is one of my favorite bridal bouquets from the winter-- all in shades of white accented with the silver berries and dusty miller foliage--perfect for the platinum and white color palette.

Miniature calla lilies, sweet peas, tulips, hydrangea, ranunucla to name a few-- definitely one of my favorites of the winter season.

Royale's purple

A recent wedding of all things purple-- and really all things purple.
The bridesmaids bouquets ( all 10 of them) featured an electic combo of purple flowers-- lisianthus, hydrangea, anemone,freesia, sweet peas and grape hyacinth. This is a great example of a small, luxurious bouquet-- full of texture and variety.

I love the personal touches--these broaches were on all of the bouquets--each one different-provided by the bride.

The Bride-- a gorgeous all white bouquet featuring gardenias and white hydrangea-- finished with the ostrich feathers and an antique broach and a beaming smile!
Thanks to Tyler at Schmitt photography for these photos!

Almost Valentines Day 2010

I had a great couple for a Valentines weekend wedding--I will admit, it does present its challenges, the pricing is crazy and somewhat out of our control--we were lucky to work with a flexible bride to get the final look without breaking the bank!

The bridal bouquet was a mix of white, green and a touch of red-- her mom did most of the planning and presented us with her favorite photos and we took it from there!

The wedding and ceremony were held at One World Theatre--
check out more photos over on the blog
Thanks Carli for the photos!

Winter reception - pop of pink

The reception featured a combination of tall and low centerpieces--
the tall centerpieces were all white with a touch of bling hanging and a few sparkly branches.
Notice the beautiful lighting on the walls.

The low centerpieces were all pink-- the vase was accented with the platinum ribbon.

This is one of the tables with the tall centerpieces-- notice how easily guests can see around the flowers--this is always a concern of ours!

Pop of pink- winter style!

Catching up on a few of our winter events--
I loved this bright pink bridal bouquet--the simplicity of the bridal gown was a perfect backdrop for this PINK bouquet--roses and calla lilies with a little touch of bling.

The bridesmaid wore a beautiful platinum floor length gown-- a formal, 7pm Catholic ceremony.

The bridesmaids bouquets were more pink flowers--I am loving ruffles at the moment--so I thought the ruffle detail was so adorable on these gowns.
