Katie & Chance | The Nest at Ruth Farms

Oh my goodness, I can’t even begin to describe how beautiful this wedding was in every aspect! Not to mention that the couple getting married was one of the absolute sweetest. When Katie first chatted with me, she mentioned that she grew up in Texas, but now lives out of state. She really loves Texas wildflowers and wanted to incorporate them into her wedding flowers. The only catch was that she was getting married in September, which is really not the season for Texas wildflowers. I told her that we might not be able to get actual Texas wildflowers, but that we could definitely achieve the same look with a lot of other options. I think the result was absolutely stunning. Not to mention that the photographers, Luisa and Douglas, captured this wedding so incredibly beautifully! They really are so talented!

Styled Shoot | Modern Serenity

I have waited for several months to share this shoot and I absolutely could not wait. The vendor team that came together and collaborated for this completely blew me away! Such amazing talent.

The inspiration for this shoot all began with an air plant. I had seen them used in bouquets before and loved the idea of incorporating something unique into my arrangements. I love air plants and their ability to grow and thrive outside of soil and water. I also love their shape and color with the elegantly long tendrils that grow from the center out. I wanted to build all of my florals for this shoot in such a way that they looked like they were floating and growing out of nothing. The tall arrangements used behind the model were built on gold metal stands that allow the florals to climb and reach as if they were naturally occurring on the stands. I also loved the sort of modern yet bohemian feel that air plants tend to lend to. When planning the table scape, I wanted the arrangements to be simple and yet dramatic. I had been drawn to the Japanese flower arrangement style of Ikebana for a while and I felt that this shoot lent perfectly to that aesthetic. Ikebana allows every bloom used in the arrangement to shine on its own plain of existence.

Callie & Ryan | Brik Venue

I was introduced to Callie & Ryan through their amazing wedding planner, Rhonda Jenkins and then later found out that Ryan is good friends with my brother in law! Such a small and funny world! I will say that Callie & Ryan are one of the sweetest couples I've had the pleasure of serving. Their love for each other is real and raw and intentional. It makes those around them feel loved as well. Callie gave me a few pictures from Pinterest of ideas that she loved, but then asked me to design and have fun. Always the best of requests! It turned out to be one of my favorite weddings of the summer. And then the whole thing was captured so beautifully by the talented husband + wife duo at Pape Weddings. Take a look!

Caitlyn & Derek | The White Sparrow

To say that Caitlyn and Derek's wedding was an absolute dream wedding would be an understatement. Every single detail was absolutely breathtaking. Cait picked the most magical color palette for her late June wedding. Check out this amazing vendor team who made this day come together so beautifully.

Flower Fun Day Shoot

A few weeks ago, my assistant and I decided to have what we called a "flower fun day"! We took a day to go down to the wholesaler, pick out anything we wanted and just design for fun! We then had the absolutely amazing Lauren Bloom come out and photograph all of our arrangements. You guys...these images are stunning. I'm so glad we took the time to grow ourselves and have fun designing without any purpose or pressure. I think this might be something we do more often!
