Jenny & Johnnie.....sittin' in a tree....

....well, you get the picture!

I know, I know, we haven't blogged in an embarrassingly long time. I received this video link and a few preview photos from one of our September brides, and I couldn't help myself. I knew I had to blog about it!

It was such a busy day for both us as a company, and for Jenny, that we never actually saw each other. Seeing it all come together like this through the photos, and especially while watching the clip for the first time was so exciting!

And the video you MUST watch:

These two were so great to work with, and Jenny's vision for the whole day was a grand one. This is what I love about flowers - they really do help bring life and beauty to any event! It was our pleasure to contribute to your wedding day with our designs. Congratulations you two love birds!

Side note - I really can't wait to share more photos - Tony, I'm eagerly awaiting them..... 
And a shout out to the guys at Grasshopper! You graciously provided photos to us for one of our earliest weddings many years ago, we've all come a long way. Keep up the great work!

Grand Prix Spring Gathering Horse Show

In early April we had the privilege of being a part of the Grand Prix Spring Gathering Horse Show at the Great Southwest Equestrian Center benefiting New Danville. New Danville is a miniature horse therapy program that provides affordable housing and services to enable adults with intellectual and development disabilities to live independently. It is located on 42 acres north of Willis, Texas in Montgomery County.

The mood was elegant and the arrangements were designed to fit the venue and the nature of the evening. Lots of natural branches and bright yellows and reds brought out the feel of a spring day in the field. It was a lot of fun providing a unique touch of the derby with small arrangements in mint julep cups.

Dawn and Wes

Dawn and Wes got married at the magnificent Tuscany Villa in Katy. Dawn wanted a fun and festive atmosphere and it was a lot of fun giving her what she wished for. Her easy going spirit allowed us to let our creativity come out. The bright spring colors complimented the decor of the venue nicely. Thank you Dawn and Wes for letting us be a part of your special day and here's a few pics to show off the vibrant spring flowers!
