an all-white affair

Sarah + Steve :: Santa Cruz Catholic Church + The Driskill Hotel :: 01.03.09

Its been a wild 2009 so far, and we're only one month in! We had the wonderful pleasure to design Sarah and Steve's wedding. Their ceremony was at Santa Cruz Catholic Church in Buda - what an amazing church. It was still beautifully decorated with Christmas decor so we didn't have to do much. The reception was held at the historic Driskill Hotel in downtown Austin. We could not have done it without 36th Street Events - Katherine and Schmitt Photography! As always it was an amazing wedding thanks to those top notch vendors.

We loved how soft this white cymbidum orchid bouquet turned out. We added a white hydrangea base to give it some form and fullness. The bridesmaid bouquets were hydrangea with one orchid kicked off to the side for a little sass.

Bat Mitzvah! A Trio of Spectacular Events for Miss Hailey!

Hailey's Wonder Emporium!!! We had so much fun designing this event. It took place over several days at One World Theatre and had different looks each time. From an all white affair, boot-scootin hill country elegant celebration to a perfectly pink and beautiful brown party just for Miss Hailey - it was an awesome weekend. Thank you so much to the always wonderful Caplan Miller Events for the opportunity and for planning such a flawless celebration.

Pink peonies and pink cymbidium orchids with a little touch of moss for a soft natural feel.
If you're planning an early spring event, cherry blossoms are amazing to use to create height and drama while keeping it soft and pretty with their pretty blooms.
Buffet piece with cherry blossoms, peonies, garden roses, and pink hydrangea. Love the drama!
Tulips are really fun to use. They're so unpredictable because they continue to grow and move toward sunlight even after being cut - we think it gives personality to the design.

This is the "Hill Country Elegant" theme we were talking about. Our latest favorite thing is succulents. The color combo of the succulents, moss, kiwi vine and yellow orchids really make this arrangement fun.

White peonies - oh my!!
