Sami & Matt - Real Wedding

We love when our photographer friends share their photos with us so that we can show off the floral details at their best! Dana Fernandez Photography did an awesome job capturing Sami and Matt's special day. They chose The Woodlands Church for their ceremony and The Woodlands Country Club for the reception for their October wedding.
For Matt's boutonniere we used white miniature garden roses, silver brunia berries and seeded eucalyptus, stems banded in white ribbon. Sami's bouquet had gorgeous dahlias, ranunculas, lisianthus and roses in shades of burgundy and blush.
Sami's bridesmaids wore different shades of gowns from blush and lavender to plum and purple, carrying unstructured bouquets of mixed greenery and roses. 
We created a mixed greenery garland to drape over the welcome sign. 
Sami really wanted a floral comb to accent her sophisticated hair style - we used delicate blooms of orchids and miniature garden roses. Perfect picture of the bride looking on as her new husband dances with his mom! 
Beautiful cake designed by Kiss the Cook Cakes, decorated with blooms and greenery in an unstructured fashion..
We created an accent arrangement in a mercury glass goblet provided by the bride which was used both at the ceremony and reception - we love when pieces serve double duty!

The Lodge at Mound Creek Styled Shoot

We had the pleasure of working with some amazing vendors for this styled shoot! A brand new venue, not quite open yet is the perfect spot for a wedding or event. Located in a quiet wooded area in Montgomery, but not too far from all the amenities in The Woodlands. Photo credit Kirk Surber Photography
The Venue is built with gorgeous dark wood on two levels with a sweeping staircase to show off the bridal gown. The florals on either side of the staircase with used first on the ceremony arch - always like to re-purpose ceremony flowers! 
 
Our color palate was various shades of yellow which popped against the dark wood. Peonies being in season at the time, they were used as the focal in the centerpieces. We had tall and short centerpieces along with the peonies was hydrangea, roses, pincushion protea, thistle, succulents and stock.
On the opposite end of the staircase is a floor to ceiling brick fireplace with mantle. The cake table was situated there. Check out the neat cake details of scrabble letters! Again the yellow peony took center stage on the cake.
Our beautiful model bride wore the floral crown so well and notice her floral "engagement ring". Flowers used in the crown are spray roses, stock blooms, thistle and succulents.
Outside on the upper deck we set up our square arch and adorned with two off-set arrangements. The breeze caught the veil for a perfect shot! 
The bride is carrying an unstructured cascading bouquet of peonies, pincushion protea, stock, roses, succulents, crespedia, thistle, honeysuckle vine and greenery
