Portrait Bouquets

The fall is always a wonderful time to take bridal portraits outdoors. Things are usually still vibrant and colorful, but the weather has cooled down just enough to make walking around outside in the sun (in a stunning dress) much more enjoyable! Here are a few from this past weekend.

We always recommend ordering a replica of what you will carry on your actual wedding day for your portraits. It gives you an opportunity to have a full trial run (hair, make up, dress, shoes... etc) and if there is anything you want to adjust, then you have time to let us know before the actual wedding. That way there are no surprises, and you have exactly what you want to carry on your wedding day!

Welcome Home

What better way to welcome guests into your home than to have an abundance of fresh flowers in every room! What was even better about this home is that they had stunning antique vases that already coordinated with each room.
We used a variety of peach, coral, green, pink and champagne tones to compliment the decor of their beautiful home. With full and luscious arrangements in just about every room the fragrance with truly captivating.
Our designers used a mixture of antique green hydrangea, esperance roses, peach finesse roses, sweetness roses, pink lisianthus, peach roses, champagne roses, soft pink gladiolas, green button poms and bells of Ireland, with a few greens mixed in throughout the arrangements.

Rubies and Lavender

This time of year is always most inviting, especially for brides in Houston. Neighborhood festivals are in full swing, kids are back in school, and weddings are on the rise. The cooler weather and beautiful scenery is a perfect setting for such a special occasion.

Soft lavender hues with accents of ruby and soft draping greens made for a regal color scheme and complimented the ruby table linens beautifully.

The wedding combined simplistic elements with traditional designs in beautiful cooling colors; ultimately setting the stage for a beautiful night.

Regal Colors

When I see red and purple together I can't help but think of a kings thrown room draped with deep red velvet draped and purple robes with gold accents. This brides decor reflected that same sophistication. The arch for her ceremony was covered in white lilies, red roses, dark purple carnations and a variety of greens, creating a lush garland type feel.
Her centerpieces, varying in height were a mixture of red roses, purple lisianthus, red hypericum berries and green hydrangea.
The ceremony was held in The Glass at The Woodlands Resort and Conference Center where we laid down as aisle runner sprinkled it with rose petals and used our beautiful shepherd hooks to hang lanterns and red pomander balls. It was a gorgeous aisle for the bride to walk!

Hot... hot... hot!

Not only is the weather in Houston excruciatingly hot right now but so is the color purple! It's been around on the popular color pallet for a while now and we're sure it's here to stay for a while!This blushing bride mixed different tones of purple with champagne roses and vibrant green spider mums and gladiolas. The vibrant contrast is so eye catching and really helps personalize the reception hall. Using a mix of tall and short arrangements is also a great way to get more impact from your flower arrangements. Your guests will be visually forced to stop and appreciate the difference, and we know it's all about those first impressions!

Back to School

It's that time of year again when all the kiddos go back to school! Yeah for more normal schedules, right? Make sure you thank all those people who helped you survive the summer with a beautiful bouquet of flowers! And better yet, send some to your kids teachers, school staff, or principle. I'm sure they would love the beautiful surprise. Can you think of a better way to kick off a new school year?
