Four Seasons in the fall v2

I loved the shade of lavender/lilac/purple for these bridesmaids dresses--

The ballroom featured a combo of tall and low centerpieces with the dark purple linens.

Lush, gorgeous hydrangea--purple, green and white for the low centerpieces.

Cocktail tables need love too!! Simple is best, we know what the real purpose is...

The Driskill-- pink and glam

Our bling tree... one of our signature pieces, only used when necessary:) The mezzazine at The Driskill was the perfect place, along with pink and pink flowers!

A ribboned chandelier--this was the inspiration for the ribbon chandeliers we displayed on Sunday at The Driskill Wedding Experience.

One of my favorite low centerpieces--accented with the pedestal candles--yesterday, they made an appearance at the ballroom entrance.
Thanks to Tyler- The Mill photography studio for the images.

I love the look of this sweet and simple long table-- collections of apothecary bottles and candles dotted the runner.

A simple centerpiece that holds hundreds of possibilities--different ribbons, petals.

And one of favorites--collection of apothecary bottles filled with adorable blooms--shades of yellows and orange.

A little more fall...

A super fun bouttoniere--a great complement to the dark brown accents.

Tall Centerpieces-- branches, curly willow and rocks.. this is an outdoor deck, so had to be heavy enough to stand up to the wind!

And the low complementing arrangements.. I think it is important to see all the elements come together.

Fall's textures....

Just received these images... loved all of these fall textures--everything from scabiosa pods, pin cushion protea, succulents,curly willow just to name a few-- the colors were shades of purples, accented with greens and a pop of orange.

The bridesmaids--the color is so vibrant against the dark brown dresses-- notice, the maid of honor did not have the purple, just shades of oranges.

A great looking wedding ensemble.

Onto the reception--each table featured a collection of milk glass containers in the centers of the tables--which had been draped in soft platinum.

Candelabra flowers... big,chunky arrangements of flowers.

Winter purples..

From a recent December wedding..yes, purple is still on the radar and doesn't look like it is going any where soon.
This was a beautiful combo of purples/lavenders and blues --always loved textures in the winte..berries,dusty miller,sweet muscari blooms.

And then there were 10 bridesmaids.. These gowns were a subtle shade of purple/gray/lavender?
A very elegant choice for a large bridal party..

I loved the flower girls, they each carried a small bouquet similar to bridesmaids.
Thanks to Tyler from The Mill Photography Studio.

Wasabi and pumpkin...the details

Just a few details that completed the look.. so many fun ideas.

Table numbers..

Tables getting close to being can hardly tell there is strong winds wreaking havoc.

Yummy cupcakes--gorgeous linen.

Wasabi and pumpkin.... the reception

This wonderful reception was held on the property in a beautiful pavillion--not built specifically for the reception, but given a facelift and enhancements for the big day!! The long tables featured combinations of tall centerpieces and low accent pieces.

This adorable cake was made by the bride's sister in law, we placed it on a gorgeous floral plateau.

A few of the accent pieces...

Lots of electic elements...

Wasabi and pumpkin... the ceremony

This beautiful hand carved cross was presented on a bed of gorgeous flowers-- it was especially made for this ceremony--stunning.

The doors leading into the residence--did I mention, this event took place at a private residence. I love this welcoming touch.

The streamers give you some indication of our windy afternoon-- definitely presented a challenge.

These are the moments that make our "jobs" all worthwhile.
