Cool Autumn Days

As the days get shorter and seasons change we all experience a little pep in our step. The fall wedding season is in full swing, and this weekend we had a great time decorating for Kirsten & Alex's wedding.

We were a little nervous about the rainy weather as a cool front pushed through, but (whew!) the rain held off on Saturday. The ceremony was held on the polo field and the outdoor tent reception was classic and elegant during one of the first cool crisp nights of the season. What a great event!

Special thanks to Brad, Jeff, Susan and the whole gang with Two Forks Catering for making sure everything ran smoothly.

Congratulations Kirsten & Alex!

The bride requested that a mare and a colt be placed in the pen next to the ceremony. What a great sight seeing the colt bound around the pen!

The bar was created with green apples - what a great concept. Way to go Two Forks Catering!!!

Baby Shower

In August we had the chance to break away from the wedding scene and provide arrangements with tropical flavor for a baby shower. What a wonderful opportunity to create some fun, modern style arrangements to compliment the couple's contemporary home. A special thank you goes out to Chris with Cafe Natalie - it was great working with you!

Lorena & Manuel - May 30, 2009

This was a stylish affair! We were tickled to work with soireebliss! and Montage Photographers at a lovely venue - The Gallery. I gotta say though.....what an introduction to summer! Set-up that afternoon was blistering, but the end result was quite lovely. We were very pleased with the results, very modern and clean.

Lorena and Manuel, you make quite a handsome couple - congratulations and best wishes to you both!

Samantha & Trung, it was great working with you - thanks for the opportunity, and the incredible photography!

Rochelle & Sid - March 14, 2009

What a great couple! These two love life, each other, and their alma mater, University of Texas. There wasn't an area of the wedding where the Texas Longhorn theme and signature burnt orange color wasn't reflected. It was truly "them"!

The cold rainy weather didn't dampen their spirits. Having to move the ceremony inside didn't matter, they were in love, and they were getting married - that's what mattered. What a great example!

Even though this was a few months ago, thanks for letting us work with you two, and help make this special day uniquely yours - Congrats guys!

Everytime I looked, she was smiling!

What classic taste - white Roses and Stephanotis, a timeless look!

(Notice the little Mickey Mouse heads in icing on the second layer - I love it Rochelle!)

Jessica & Patrick 4/18/09

I'm a big fan of purple - I always have been, it's one of my favorite colors! Jessica's wedding colors revolved around purple - fun!! It was a small backyard wedding at her parents' home. The house and yard were impeccable, despite the downpour of rain that had been dumped the previous day and most of the wedding day. Miracle of miracles, the sky broke, and the sun began to poke through the clouds just in time for the wedding and reception to proceed - rain free! Here are a few photos of the event, and some of the flowers we provided. Special thanks to Magek Photography for some of the images.

Patrick - the surprise arrangement of Jessica's favorite flowers (red roses & white calla lilies) was such a romantic gesture! I'm so glad you thought of it, I know she loved it!

Congratulations Jessica & Patrick, and thank you for allowing us to be involved!

My own shots - close ups of the above centerpiece. Purple wire twisted around bear grass and orchids, to yield a spiraled effect.

Patrick's surprise for his new bride - gorgeous!

Playing with different boutonniere concepts was fun!
