Dreamy Stationery Pairings

Dreamy Stationery Pairings

When it comes to floral design, we explore every wedding element for inspiration.

One of our biggest inspirations is your stationery! Your invites set the tone and give your guests a sneak peek into your wedding’s theme.

We gathered a few of our favorite floral and stationery pairings and included a bit of an insight into the inspiration behind it!

Green Goodness

The heavy green and soft floral border around the suites served as an inspiration to create an overflowing arrangement with a balance of dark green and soft tones of pink and white floral in a rose gold vessel.

The green hues were the main focus of the design and reflected the border used on the wedding invite.

Summer Elopment

Perfect for a classic summer wedding.

This blue-hued invite inspired us to bring out our ginger jars!

The ginger jar vessels reflected the watercolor painting of the Chinese temples, while the gold magnolias leaves and soft white florals mirrored the supporting stationary suite.

 

Jeweled Garden

Nothing stands between a girl and her jewels!

Our bride wanted to focus on rich deep tones such as purples, pinks, and teals. The wedding invitations and table cards reflected the facets and hues of a jewel.

To continue the theme through to the florals, our team incorporated touches of jeweled toned blooms in the bridal bouquet and table arrangements.

A Classic Beauty

A simple design with detailed florals peaking from the inside of the envelope served as the inspiration for this rustic chic wedding.

Lush all- white floral and greenery arrangements in classic stone urns sat atop white linens, reflecting the sweet simplicity of the suite.

The simple design sparked the inspiration for the classic romantic look the bride had always dreamt of.

Happiness in Blush

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

Pink tones from the envelopes and rsvp cards were carried through to the lush centerpieces and napkins, highlighting the soft blush theme.

 

 

 

Dreamy Houston Zoo Wedding

Dreamy Houston Zoo Wedding

 

It all started with frequent trips to the zoo as a young child and a de Gournay’s Amazonia wallpaper. This was the ultimate inspiration for Cat and Winston’s incredibly dreamy Houston Zoo Wedding.

Cat continued the theme throughout the wedding design with thoughtful details that were meant to stand out. Such as, her my grandmother’s collection of ginger jars, zoo-animal topiaries, a blueprint seating chart drafted by Winston (an incredible architect), a face painting station for kids of all ages, Barnum’s Animal Crackers for parting favors and her wedding shoes which were ​Aquazurra for de Gournay, in the exact print as the inspirational wallpaper.

Cat’s bouquet was a lush combo of off-white and blush blooms such as: white peonies, antique hydrangea, clematis, ranunculus butterfly, as well as secret garden and pink O’Hara roses for a pop of color.

Meticulously designed wedding invitations introduced the zoo theme to their 300 guests.  Cat combined the de Gournay Amazonia wallpaper with her favorite zoo animals to set the tone and give their guests a glimpse of what they could expect on the big day.

For an extra personal touch, a similar design to her grandmother’s ginger jars was printed on the wedding envelopes.

By far one of our biggest projects, our team went through over 2,000+ blooms and greenery!

The head table contained 33 stone urns with a mixture of pastels and blues, with minimal greens; while large trumpet vessels overflowing with green foliage added height and petite mint juleps cups were employed to accent the arrangements and punctuate each stone urn.

Custom made de Gournay Amazonia linens were laid over Tuscany light blue linens for added contrast and accents.

There were 6 distinct patterns and colored linens used throughout the reception, including a green pattern for the cake table and a blue china pattern for round guest tables.

Twenty ginger jars overflowing with blush and white blooms with touches of greenery were placed atop the guest tables to continue the theme. The ginger jars were compliments of Cat’s grandmother adding a very special touch that was incorporated into the overall theme, truly setting her wedding apart.

This couple made sure their wedding was truly unique, from the invitations to the wedding cake and Cat’s shoes, allowing guests to see their personality shine throughout every design element.

This Houston Zoo wedding was so unique and magical event that it was featured on Martha Stewart Weddings this month! We were so excited to share a mutual dream come true from both our end and Cat’s!

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.
