Our Original Winter Wonderland!

We've been blogging about our "winter wonderland" themed open house at The Terrace Club and at our bridal show booth and we wanted to show you where the inspiration came from. December 6, 2008 - Lauren & Jim The Terrace Club, Dripping Springs Texas

Jona Davis with Forever Photography did an amazing job capturing all the details of the day. We also think that lighting really creates that ambiance that you're after. The icy blue light truly makes the design thanks to Ilios Lighting. Lauren & Jim even had "real" snow come down on guests as they entered The Terrace Club.

There's a lot of pictures we wanted to include so be prepared! Jona - we love them all!!

Branches and trees are placed on the front and back of the ceremony area and also along the aisle. They are all snow-flocked and crystals for that extra shimmer and romance!
Suspended candles from the trees created some "warmth" in this snow covered room. In between the trees on the aisle we had white shepherd's hooks snow-flocked with hanging white pomanders to soften the texture against the branches.

Lauren - you looked amazing!

Bridal Show Booth :: Winter Wonderland

Thank you to everyone who stopped by our booth last weekend. We wanted to do something a little different and something you don't really see in Central Texas - SNOW! We created a custom chuppah that can be any color and any size. We loved that brides were getting underneath the chuppah and taking pictures of themselves holding our bouquets. We were next to Todd at Say Cheese (we were competing for best back drop.) :) Thank you to Lucie's Events for assisting with our booth again this year with design & production. We make a great team! We had a lot of fun incorporating crystals and believe it or not - carnations. They are truly making a comeback in the event industry as a super durable bloom that allows desingers to take floral to places water can't go!!! They are so durable! From carnation wreaths, pomanders or hanging flowers, I can't think of a REAL flower that holds up better than a carnation... especially for a two-day show.

Check out the stunning photos that Eric from Studio 563 took while stopping by. Studio 563 is so great at taking detail shots and are one of our absolute favorites to work with.

"Pretty Pretty" is what we'll call this one. I'm lovin' the dahlias, anemones, hypericum berries, hydrangea & spray roses in this one & finishing it off with some green amaranthus. So romantic.

Snow flocked trees and a custom chuppuh topped with ivory hydrangea for that really lush soft look. We took a different take on hanging crystals which you will still see a lot this year. We also added some lighting to the backdrop for that extra wow. Lighting is the latest "must have" in wedding design - at least we think so!
This dainty bouquet is filled with hydrangea, white ranuncula accents, varigated grass loops and crowned with lamb's ear. Lamb's ear is soooo soft!
We've been seeing/creating this style of bouquet recently. Two kinds of flowers such as tulips and hydrangea in a perfect ring to give each flower its own spotlight.
Thanks again Eric... We LOVE showing off the photos you take of our work!!! :)
