Featured in The Texas Knot- Allison & Zach's Wedding

I came across this article the other day while looking for pretty things to talk about on the blog. This wedding was unreal - absolutely breathtaking! Petal Pushers was one of the vendors at Allison & Zach's San Antonio wedding last March and this past Fall their Wedding was featured in The Knot Texas.

From the amazing arbor to the bouquet to the tables, it's obvious that Petal Pushers sprinkled their expertise and magic all over this wedding.

The 12 types of flowers used (including my favorites - Ranunculas, Peonies, Garden Roses and Cymbidium Orchids) constituted a gorgeous spectrum of pink with the Italian Ruscus, Jasmine Vine, and Texas Smilax mixing in a pinch of green. This combination created a gorgeous garden wedding.

Looking at these photos, Allison & Zach's event has such a whimsical and elegant floral atmosphere resulting in jaw dropping beauty. I can only imagine what it must have been like to have been there and to have taken this all in in-person. It seems fairy tale like - so light, airy, and delicate. **sigh & swoon, sigh & swoon**

Petal Notes:

This was a progressive wedding with the ceremony on the lawn, the cocktail hour in the courtyard, and reception in the ballroom.  The cake was placed out in the round foyer as a statement piece so as not to get lost in the rectangular room that was already filled with dramatic floral.

We chose a variety of table styles with a long, dramatic head table to give the room variance, which I recommend for most weddings, the only exception being small bottle weddings if they have lots of their own props on the tables.  But, for the most part, a room has a better flow with a mix of centerpieces - especially if all of the tables are round (which I try to discourage).

Destination Wedding in Naples, Florida – Part Two

We absolutely loved the all white floral color scheme in Naples.  Our main flowers were white peonies and white phalaenopsis orchids.  How can you go wrong?  The only sad part was we couldn't take the flowers back with us to Texas.  It darn near broke our hearts.  I think I even saw Stacey shed a little tear for those orchids during the breakdown of wedding. One of our favorite chuppah's to date:

It was covered in moss, orchids, roses, peonies, amaranthus, stock - you name it.  LOOOOVED it!

Below are more pictures of the stunning wedding.  Don't forget to check it out on Style Me Pretty here.

Destination Wedding in Naples, Florida – Part One

When Courtney Caplan of Caplan Miller Events asked us to design her brother's wedding, we were so honored she chose us!  Its such a compliment when we get referrals from our favorite event producers, but an even BIGGER compliment when asked to do their family's events.  Then she mentioned it was going to be in Naples, Florida at the Ritz Carlton.  We. Were. Floored.  We loaded up our van and had a road crew bring all over our favorite vases and vessels just for Lizzy and Kevin (the bride and groom).  Stacey and I flew into Miami a few days prior and finally got to meet all of our growers and distributors that we've spoken to over the phone and emailed for years, but never put faces to the names!  It was so fun to actually see the warehouses and facilities and make some new friends. The next few days went by really fast with designing, designing and more designing.  Unfortunately, the only time we had a chance to see and touch the beach was at 2am after all the design work was completed each night.  We hear its lovely in the daylight!

These pictures are from the fabulous rehearsal dinner Courtney and her team put on poolside at the Ritz.  From fire breathers to a steel drum band, no detail was overlooked.  Find more details being featured on Style Me Pretty this week!  Up next, the wedding...

Kim + Jared :: Star Hill Ranch :: 12.29.09

Ok, I have to tell you... I was secretly a little worried when Kim informed me she was seriously planning her ceremony outside transforming the existing Gazebo at Star Hill Ranch into a Chuppah on the LAST WEEK OF DECEMBER! Needless to say, we were watching the weather channel all week and as we hoped...Texas treated us to an absolutely PERFECT Wedding! Courtney Caplan at Courtney Caplan Events was super duper with the planning and back-up rain/incliment weather plan for this event!!  Luckily we were able to stick with Plan"A". :)
