Many times we find that our clients are confused on where to spend their money. We work in a creative industry that allows so much room for flexibility when budget is concerned. But with all budgets, large or small we are convinced that you need to have 3 main area where you should spend your money on your wedding.

ONE - Your bouquet

Sorry gentleman you are being left out of this one, unless you are wanting to cary a bouquet too. This is an important one that I have seen left out. Someone said not too long ago that what’s the point of splurging on a bouquet when they would only be holding it going down the aisle for a couple minutes.

EEK! Where do I begin? Let’s just list off all the monumental shots that your amazing photographer will capture that will have your bouquet. Walking down the aisle with your loved one as you go to meet your partner down the aisle. Your father, uncle, mother, that special person that means the world to you will be walking you down that aisle and that moment will be captured in your memories for a life time.

When you just got done getting married and now walking down the aisle with your life partner. That bouquet is the perfect decor piece. Family, bridal party, your portrait, couple’s portrait, bridesmaids shots, etc all these pics that we so fondly look back on, all have your bouquet. Trust me on this one, you want one and you must hire someone that makes fabulous bouquets.

TWO- Head Table

This is it, once in a life time. (I couldn’t say that with a bouquet as we, in The South, take bridals, so many times our brides does cary a bouquet more than once) But your head table… this is it. The one time that you get to indulge yourself and your immediate family and bridal party with an amazing, over the top experience.

It creates an anchoring spot for the room and it allows you to sit in a moment where all the most abundant florals and decor will be placed.

And let’s face it, the photographer is not capturing every singe table. They will walk into the room and capture the table that has the most decor, where all the details are centrally located.

THREE - Dance Floor

Either creating a hanging installation or a band front. We suggest having this as one of your main focal points. This is where your first dance will be, your father daughter dance and all those fun, gushy speeches will be held. It is the main gathering location for the rest of the evening. Do not leave this are left out.

We have created band fronts, hanging installations and even added 4 pedestals around each side of the dance floor to help create an intimate area where all images are captured. Allow us to be creative and make something that will be captured and remembered for a life time.

a fall wedding color palette

I have to admit I have not been a huge fan of the traditional Fall color palettes. What comes to mind are the oh so typical orange, yellow and reds that have been combined in the most painful of ways. In 2018 I was determined to change my view and make Fall fun again.

So off I went to explore color tones that were traditionally seen in weddings and combined them with the best of what Fall has to offer. I grabbed some copper tones with some soft mauvey blushes and mixed them with some seasonal textures that when combined made my heart skip a beat.

We just got these images from the super talented Jen Dillenger and could not wait to share them with you. She captured these flowers perfectly and we are so proud of how everything turned out.

fall colors: adding unexpected tones to your palette

Exploring color is one of the elements of design that we love the most. As much as I have love for neutrals, exploring with new color palettes that are unexpected is very rewarding.

Fall has a tendency to bring all the oranges and yellows out, but adding to those tones is where the magic happens. When we look at nature, Fall leaves have an insane amount of colors that we tend to overlook. With this particular arrangement we tried to add those tones that can be forgotten.

The soft peaches, rusts, and sages add the perfect hues to soften those harsher yellow tones. We also added textures with those colors that keep it interesting and fun. I played with the idea of designing with these colors in a manner that helps move your eye through out the arrangement. I wanted to see if grouping colors will create what is seen in Fall forests. That you see a grouping of all orange trees, then a grouping of red trees all in one glance. It seems like nature is the leader of design.

We used the following blooms to make this arrangement come together:

1) Fall Eucalyptus

2) Ranunculus

3) Field Grown Garden Roses

4) Lisianthus

5) Butterfly Ranunculus

6) Foraged Privett Berries

7) Jasmine

8) Roses

9) Silver Dollar Eucalyptus

I used this clear urn to keep that element simple. As the colors were going to be on the more fussy side I wanted to see what this one would like if we kept the urn less distracting and keeping the focal point on the flowers. This urn is one of my favorites, it is timeless, simple, clean and brings an element of an old world feel that we always love.

be around the light bringers

I read this some where and shamefully say that I have no clue where it came from.  I knew I needed to save it and meditate on it.  This quote leads my life.  

Be around the light bringers,

the magic makers, the world shifters,

the game shakers. 

They challenge you, break you open,

uplift you and expand you.

  They don't let you play small with your life. 

These heartbeats are your people. 

These people are your tribe.

I absolutely adore my creative community.  They energize me, motivate me and drive me to do more than I ever thought was possible.  My competitors keep me on my toes while my vendor friends keeping pushing me to do more.  I need this like I need air to breath.

Their drive is contagious, their vision demands attention. I am severely passionate about my work and love those that feel the same about theirs. 

These images bellow are from Simon Ly Photography. He reached out and asked for a last minute bouquet.  When he calls you answer.  He's a up and coming fine art photographer who is grinding away and creating is own path to success.  He exemplifies the quote above and found it so relevant to share the images he sent over.

So, we have to admit- we totally know this is so 2 weeks ago. BUT, with our crazy busy fall season & the holidays sneaking up on us, we just haven't had time to properly celebrate our fave Bachelor star & fellow Houstonian, AshLee Frazier! (Cue office dance party!)

For those of you who don't know AshLee: she was a contestant on Sean's season and made it to the final 3. She then went on to do Bachelor in Paradise. These days, she is a killer fashion/fitness/lifestyle blogger & all around cooler-than-we-will-ever-be #girlboss! You can find her blog here.

We can't believe it's been 3 years since we have had the opportunity to meet this rockstar. After brainstorming with some of our favorite creatives (Joseph West and Christina Landrum with Pomp & Circumstance),  I came to the conclusion that there weren't enough events that help meld the masculine and the feminine sides of event design.  The dark tones of masculine sensibilities and bright cheerful tones of feminine energy.  

We also thought it would be fun to play on the idea that she was on her hunt for her prince charming and grab the vibrant, fun nature of her personality. Flash forward to today and she has found him!

Here are some of our favorite shots:

a simple thank you

There are those times that a simple 'thank you' can make you cry.  I've been running around like a mad woman lately trying to make everything work.  Trying to get everything in order, answering emails, phone calls, attending meetings, walk throughs, creating proposals, future potentials possibilities.... the list could fill this whole blog post and bore us all to death.

After providing florals for the Hailie and Kendall of The White Buffalo Project this past week they handing me a sweet little package and inside I found this print! It brought tears to my eyes.   It was just something I needed to hear and something I needed right at that moment.  We can go through our lives working our days away and through all this, feeling totally under appreciated.  

Women! You truly make the world go round.  Giving your love, appreciation and kindness can propel someone's day, life and business to be something it wasn't just that moment before. Spread it around, everywhere, whenever you can, however you can... just do it.
