Citrus-Infused Texas Wedding

Citrus-Infused Texas Wedding

 

This lovely Texas bride was all about color for her wedding. From bright yellows to deep reds, we worked our way through a rainbow of colored blooms and citrusy scents.

The barn setting of Beckendorff Farms was the perfect backdrop for this sweet Texas wedding. Handcrafted elements of the venue were pulled into the overall design to create a natural-meets-glam color-infused wedding.

Twelve gorgeous bridesmaid’s bouquets were created to include a mix of colorful florals such as Hot Eskimo Roses, Peach Ranunculus, Stock flowers, and a variety of greens for a splash of texture.

The colorful theme continued through to the bride’s bouquet, where red stems of Ranunculus and Gloriosa were added to complement the bridesmaid’s dresses.

This wedding party’s florals were chock-full of color and texture!

Colorful blooms are all the more effective in a minimalist setting.

The barn style venue is an all wooden estate, from the high beams to their signature French “X” back wooden chairs, allowing the colorful palette to truly pop!

Cream colored linens were placed on the round guest tables with cheesecloth runners on the farm tables. This curated mix of neutral tones and textures allowed the colorful arrangements to draw the eye.

Three designs were strategically placed on guests’ tables to create a panoply of color, texture, and height, including tall gold cages gushing with greenery and hydrangeas for an added touch of texture.

A cluster of blooming bud vases with cylinders and pillar candles added a touch of romance to the round guest tables.

While gold compotes bursting with bright blooms added a splash of vibrant fun.

Long family-style farm tables were adorned with a romantic setting straight from a fairytale, the cheesecloth runners and pillar candles added a hint of romantic softness to stone urns filled with bright blooms and citrus elements.

Combining florals and citrus fruit created a beautiful fresh aroma that wafted throughout the room, setting the tone for this Texas theme evening.

Our team loves to work with couples with unique visions for their special day and can’t wait to see what the rest of the year brings for all of our happy couples!

5 Beautiful Blooms to add to your Spring Wedding!

5 Beautiful Blooms to add to your Spring Wedding!

 

 

Spring has sprung and it’s gushing with gorgeous blooms!

They say Spring brides are the luckiest because some of the most beautiful flowers bloom in the warm spring sun.

Peonies

Peonies are known for coming in bright spring colors and having an excess of fluffy petals.

A Coral Charm peony is an early-blooming semi-double (a flower with two or three times the normal number of petals), whose deep coral buds open to form glowing chalices of smooth coral peach.

Pop one of these peachy babies in your bouquet or arrangements to add some eye-catching color!

Tulips

Ohh tulips, our one true love!

The most colorful of all spring flowers and a favorite among gardeners, as they are one of the easiest flowers to grow!

These sweet blooms stand tall and pretty adding a touch of simple elegance and height to any spring bouquet!

Juliet Garden Rose

Juliet Garden Roses are known for their full-petaled look and ruffled edges, and is a classic selection for soft, vintage, and shabby chic themes!

The Juliet rose is perfect for adding a sense of vintage romance to any antique-inspired look!

Hydrangeas

Hydrangeas are a top 10 wedding favorite!

Adding these colorful and oversized blossoms brings a lush, voluminous feel to just about any arrangement.

Hydrangeas can be used as filler to add texture and a little oomph to your florals, or as a colorful standout piece to draw the eye.

Ranunculus

He loves me, he loves me not… he definitely loves me!

With layers and layers… and layers of petals, Ranunculus is currently one of the trendiest wedding blooms!

These sweet delights are more readily available than peonies, add a soft elegance to your arrangements, and come in a multitude of colors.

Ranunculus are perfect for every spring palette!

Today Was A Fairy Tale

Today Was A Fairy Tale

Nothing says spring like an al fresco wedding!

This stunning outdoor April ceremony was set on the gorgeous grounds of Brenners on the Bayou. Our bride saw her dream wedding through rose-colored glasses, which was the ultimate idea behind the bright color palette, venue, and natural setting.

Carefully selected blooms gave the impression that they were plucked straight from her spring garden and the bright red bridesmaid dresses added an extra pop of color to the natural surroundings.

A small town feel gazebo at Brenners set the tone for the sweet intimate ceremony, while the natural surrounding created the perfect whimsical background for their spring nuptials.

The elegant ceremony was accented by loosely arranged swags of ferns and foliage, affixed along the aisle with cascading ivory and champagne ribbons.

The blushing bride had bouquet rich in whimsy and overflowing with blooms, featuring pops of bright color that played to the wedding theme.

To create this focal piece, our team combined ruscus leaves and sea star ferns with red ranunculus, Juliet garden roses, Coral Charm peonies, and other soft selected floral pieces, and wrapped them in cascading nude and scarlet silk ribbons to create a bouquet fit for a fairy tale.

Along with a mix of greens and pops of jewel tones, Juliet garden roses, and red anemones were placed in the bridesmaid’s bouquets to add interest and correspond to the bride’s bouquet.

With the soft tones in the bride’s bouquet, and so they wouldn’t compete with the bright red bridesmaids’ dresses, soft neutral silk ribbons were lightly tied around each bridesmaids’ bouquets as the perfect finishing touch.

The whimsy didn’t end at the ceremony, the reception was adorned with gold footed compotes gushing with spring garden blooms in red and white, with touches of jewel tones and blushes.

An intimate sophisticated reception received a fairy tale touch with the spring color palette and abundant garden blooms, creating a fun light atmosphere.

To accent the couple’s contemporary wedding cake, large deep wine-red anemones were strategically placed.

The fresh deep red blooms added a touch of romance and tied in the room’s décor without taking away from the architectural nature of the cake.

Apples, Berries, and Citrus… Oh My!

Apples, Berries, and Citrus… Oh My!

Exciting new wedding trends are in full force this year, from non-traditional ceremony spaces to incorporating fruit and vegetables in your bouquet and floral arrangements!

Brides looking for modern, yet slightly non-traditional ideas are really pushing the boundaries when it comes to their bouquets and floral arrangements, and we are loving this new trend of incorporating fruits and vegetables into their florals.

From oranges to artichokes, rest assured this trend will add a depth of texture, rich color, and boldness to your wedding florals.

When it comes to a colorful palette, citrus is a great way intensify an already bold arrangement.

Slicing limes, lemons, or oranges and weaving them through your tablescapes will not only creates layers of texture, color, and contrast but will also add a rich citrus aroma that will enhance the ambiance of your intimate dinner with family and friends.

Red apples, berries, and pomegranates are an especially great choice to incorporate in your autumn floral arrangements.

We love the look of ‘tone on tone’ florals, perfect for moody autumn weddings; implementing fruit into your flower arrangements creates a continued rich monochromatic theme for your nuptials.

Still love your traditional bouquet but want to add a small twist to it? Add a larger piece, such a pomegranate or an artichoke. Place these statement pieces at the front of your bouquet or table arrangement to create a unique focal point!

This works particularly well with a large bouquet; combine same sized blooms with the artichoke to produce the perfect balance!

Take advantage of the fruit trend by playing with the wide spectrum of colors, sizes, shapes, textures, and even scents, to achieve the look and feel you envisioned for your wedding day!

Give our Floral and Events team a call today, to discuss how to perfectly incorporate this fun trend into your next event!

Whimsical Wintery Wedding

Whimsical Wintery Wedding

In honor of the month of love, we’re featuring a winter love story.

This whimsical wintery wedding was held at Big Sky Barn; the soft details of the dreamy nuptials brought a lightness to the venue’s rustic surroundings. The couple incorporated unique touches with sheet moss wreaths, a symbol of happiness from the wedding invite, and a fun twist on bridesmaids’ “bouquets” with wreaths of greenery and silk ribbon.

The ceremony space was adorned with a copper-framed arbor, wrapped with greenery and bursting with gorgeous winter blooms. Gold lanterns and pillar candles worked their way down the aisle to highlight the romantic atmosphere.

 

The bride’s bouquet was a vision of winter blooms in blush and ivory, giving her a  fresh from the garden feel. The whimsical theme was brought to life with the inclusion of Sweet Escimo roses, Brezilla Berries, Cappuccino roses, White Majolica, and Dusty Miller.

To kick-off a lifetime of happiness, the couple’s paper details featured the Chinese symbol for happiness in gold foil. The distinctive feature was carried through to the reception with moss covered happiness symbols.

 

The bride wanted to steer away from your typical bridesmaids’ bouquet, and incorporated wreaths of green with stunning silk ribbon into her wedding party. To add a touch of whimsy, the bridesmaids’ wreaths were later repurposed to set the stage for the elegant four-tiered wedding cake.

The whimsical wintery theme continued through to the reception with rosewood napkins and gold compotes overflowing with gorgeous blooms and soft textures. The gold compotes accented the silvery tones of the dusty miller and mixed with oatmeal velvet linens for creating a stunning wintery texture.

Jeweled Garden

Jeweled Garden

Gardens, candlesticks, and jewel tones, oh my!

Jewel tones are a perfect addition to any wedding palette but there is just something about a deep moody hue for an autumn wedding.  This jewel-toned garden wedding at The Parador is the perfect example of how to showcase this unique color element.

With a backdrop of a historic Texas building, this ornate and tranquil setting added a Mediterranean and Byzantine flair to this enchanting ceremony.

Whimsically wrapped in cascading ivory and white silk ribbons, the bride’s bouquet was a symphony of jewel tones and gentle green that created a lush and autumnal feel. To complement their dresses and balance the deep hues of the bride’s bouquet, the bridal party carried bunches of white roses, deep burgundies, and soft jewel tones.

Not to overshadow the natural beauty of ‘The Gardens’, the couple opted for the down-to-earth look of a minimal ceremony arch. Wrapped in soft greenery, jewel tones, and lighter touches, the arch was the perfect accompaniment to the lush landscaping ‘The Gardens’ offered

Jewel tones and greens in gold compotes ran atop a gold sequin runner to add a bit of sparkle to the main table. While brass candlesticks holding single stem florals and gold mercury votives added that extra secret garden touch.

Guest tables continued the whimsical secret garden theme with the addition of light pink dahlias, burgundy ranunculus, and Amaranthus in gold compotes.

Golden goblets filled with ranunculus, scabiosa pods, roseberry and blueberry roses mingled with brass candlesticks holding single stems on alternating guest tables to add a hint of variation and height.

We hope you loved this colorful wedding just as much we did, make sure to keep up with our blog for more beautiful floral!
