These are my own photography - a far cry from the work of a trained professional, but they're not so bad, really? I loved working on this wedding - Gerbera Daisies and Tulips are among my favorites! I just love spring, and the variety it brings. And again, can't wait for the "whole picture" from Mary Henry-Zeek. Thank heaven for talented photographers!
Anyway, Bridget & Ben - Thanks for letting us be part of your fabulous day!

It’s the second full week of National Stroke Awareness Month. Have you been educating friends and family about how to Act F.A.S.T. to increase recognition of and response to stroke symptoms?
Here’s an easy way! Use the F.A.S.T. method and the tips below to recognize and respond to stroke and to understand the importance of educating everyone about these important facts.
Once you’ve educated yourself, forward this e-mail onto everyone in your contacts list to help spread awareness at a maximum level!
A few easy tips for why understandingand the proper response are important:
- Stroke requires emergency treatment.
- You only have 3 hours from the onset of stroke symptoms to receive t-PA, a life-saving treatment.
- Fewer than 5% of stroke patients currently receive t-PA.
- In a National Stroke Association/Gallup poll, 17 percent of the respondents over age 50 couldn’t name a single stroke symptom.
- A recent study shows that only 55 percent of patients who have had a stroke were able to identify one stroke symptom.
- Only 38 percent of respondents participating in the CDC’s 2005 Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (the world’s largest, on-going telephone health survey system) were aware of stroke symptoms and would call 9-1-1 if they thought someone was having a stroke.

Yes, it was the end of February, and quite a chilly day, but Spring had definitely arrived down here in the South. The bridal bouquet was a stunning mix of white Mini Calla Lilies with traditional white Lillies and the bridesmaids carried bouquets of Tulips, Ranunculus & Roses in shades of hot pink with pops of bright green Kermit Mums.
Katie & Kyle - You guys were awesome! Thanks so much for letting us be part of your wedding celebration.
Ashley, you guys captured it all perfectly! Thank you so much for sharing these.

Alright, so earlier this year the buzz in the Houston wedding community was about who was voting for whom in the KPRC Click2Houston's Best contest.
So, it is much overdue that we announce that YOU, our wonderful clients and friends, have voted Petals by Design one of the TOP FIVE Best in Houston in Wedding Flowers! We're right up there with other well-known event florists in Houston, and it's such an honor. We actually placed 3rd, and I'm personally thrilled.
You can click here to go to our page and see for yourself!
We clearly couldn't have done it without each and every one of your votes, reviews, and overall support. So blessed! You guys ROCK!
