Romantic and Timeless wedding // Ridglea Country Club // Katey + Paul

Hi friends! Hope this week is treating you right! I’ve got a teething 1 year old over here, so needless to say we’re a little tired. Today I am throwing it back to one of my favorite weddings for one of my favorite gals (you may already know her from your Instagram feed).

Back in 2013 Katey reached out to me for a floral crown to use in a photo shoot she was working on.  Katey is a well known fashion, design and lifestyle blogger – shout out Chronicles of Frivolity and I was so excited to make something for her to shoot.  We became fast friends and decided we needed to host a blogger/floral crown workshop with our friends at Rio Ritz Boutique. We totally need to host another one of those, but more on that later! 

Katey is a perfect southern belle- sweet as can be, put together, and a super fashionable and fun friend.  That’s exactly why her blog is such a success, readers feel they can connect with her and her style is picture perfect.  I can text her at any moment to ask style advice and she passes no judgement when I’m feeling like a clueless, fashion-less dork.  

Ok, enough gushing over Katey and now onto her totally gush-worthy wedding! We had so much fun working together on the floral crown workshop, that I was over the moon when she called me a year later to reserve her wedding date. Out of all the amazing florists in DFW, we were honored she wanted to work with us again! She and her fiancé, Paul, wanted a short engagement so we needed to start planning her dream wedding stat!

Katey and Paul had visions of a timeless, romantic wedding filled with tall floral centerpieces and long floral garlands. That floral table runner stands the test of time!  Speaking of garland, we loved designing the garland that framed the doorway at the church, the perfect backdrop to photograph that show stopping Miss Hayley Paige gown. Still can’t get over that amazing photo of Katey and her b-maids fluffing the gown!

Thanks for joining us on this super fun trip down memory lane! Don’t forget to check out Chronicles of Frivolity for more of Katey’s style goodness 🙂

Friday Favorites // Wedding Cake Florals

Happy Friday, friends! This Friday is an especially happy one for me because The Bevy has officially moved offices and we re-open tonight! For those of you who don’t know, The Bevy is a wedding and event design studio where I office with 4 other fabulous wedding professionals. We’ve just moved to a much bigger space and the best part is I now have my office and my warehouse all under one roof. I am so excited to be able to meet with my brides and then take them straight to my warehouse to show them all my florals. Stay tuned for a post about the new space AND awesome new classes I’ll be hosting there.

Now on to one my favorite topics-Cake! I have never met a cake I didn’t like and wedding cake is always at the top of my list. When a bride lets us step in and floralize (is that a word?) a cake, I get so excited! It’s such a great way to be able to tie in the dessert table to the rest of the reception tables, plus I just love how it looks. Sometimes we decorate the actual cake and other times we just add florals around the cake table. One of my favorite things we’ve done is repurpose the ceremony arch at the dessert table to add that wow factor to the reception space.

So today we’re paying tribute to the sweetest part of the wedding, literally, by sharing a handful of our favorite cakes. Enjoy these beauties and I apologize if these photos trigger your sweet tooth, feel free to treat yo self!

Peach and Navy Wedding // Bella Donna Chapel // Ashley + Ken

Hellllooooo Summer! We’ve been lucky so far here in Dallas with enough of those afternoon storms rolling in to cool off our days and I was maybe getting too used to it. This morning though, I went on our typical morning walk and it was definitely mid-July here in Texas- HOT AND HUMID! It’s offically time to move our walks to the mall 🙂 I guess we can just swoon over some gorgeous spring weddings to bring us back to breezier days.

Today, on this Wedding Wednesday, I’m featuring a gorgeous spring wedding that give us all the breezy, airy and romantic feels! My sweet friend Britney Tarno, of the The Tarnos Wedding Photography, introduced me to our bride Ashley and I loved her immediately. I always know a bride is going to be amazing when Britney introduces me because somehow she always works with the best brides out there! Ashley and Ken were getting married at Bella Donna Chapel and really wanted to play off the Mediterranean vibe for the reception. We decided to complement the look of the space with gold and stone accents, peach and orange flowers and LOTS of candles! Candles always equal romance in my book!

I’m super obsessed with those gorgeous navy bridesmaid dresses with the peach bouquets and I can’t get over how pretty those lace ribbons turned out in pictures! By now you can probably tell I love a leafy green moment and I had so much fun wrapping those awesome candelabras in some greenery.

We love when a couple adds a little personal flair to their wedding day, and Ashley and Ken definitely did when they whipped out some masks and had a carnival themed reception! How cool is that picture of them with those masks? So unique!

We loved this wedding and working with Ashley and Ken! Hope this dreamy wedding helps you beat the heat today, happy Wedding Wednesday!

Friday Favorites // Bridal Portraits

Happy Friday! Anyone else out there still recovering from the long 4th of July weekend? We had a great weekend with friends and family on the lake in Arkansas, lots of BBQ, boating, sunshine and of course sparklers!  We sure did celebrate and we’re finally getting caught up on some wedding lovelies.

I love getting to work with a bride for her bridal shoot, it gives us a chance to do a trial with the bouquet and make sure everything is just right. For the bride, it’s such a perfect opportunity to make sure the dress fits and the glam is on point. Plus, it doesn’t hurt to get an extra day to strut your stuff in your gorgeous wedding gown.

Today, I wanted to share some of my favorite bridal portrait shoots we’ve worked on. When I work with a bride on her bridals, more often than not we create the same style bouquet as we’re doing for the wedding. Sometimes though, brides want to mix it up and try other styles, add some flowers to her hair or even go for a floral crown. We’ve even designed florals for our bride’s furry friends (see below).Your bridal photo shoot is yours and we love how our brides let their personalities shine in these featured photos.

We’re always curious about great photo shoot locations, where did you take your bridal portraits?

Romantic Dream Wedding // The City Club in Fort Worth // Courtney + Justin

Happy Hump Day!! You’ve made it through half the week so as your reward, we’re sharing this dream wedding with yall. Get ready for some serious gorgeous wedding magic with this one! 

Every wedding we work on is so special and each couple is very near and dear to my heart but it’s beyond flattering when one of your very good friends asks you to do their wedding flowers. Talk about feeling HONORED, no pressure right? 

Courtney has been a good friend of mine for over a decade now and we had always talked about her future wedding one day.  I was so happy when she met Justin and just knew he was the one for her! Once they got engaged the real wedding planning convos commenced, it was SO fun getting to design her dream wedding with her. Courtney is definitely a girly girl and loves all things glam, she has such great style!  She dreamt of big fluffy flowers, tall arrangements and gold and silver gilded greenery and we had a blast making that vision come to life. 

With Courtney’s neutral wedding colors, we designed with white hydrangea, white roses, champagne roses and mixed metallics to  complement the natural glam of The City Club in Fort Worth. Those chandeliers and mirrored columns are to die for.  Also, I’m still obsessing over that floral table runner, such a great way to achieve that big fluffy flower drama.

I can’t even talk about how gorgeous Courtney and her girl squad looked! That bridal gown goodness with the structure of those bridesmaids dresses, I could go on all day! A Sea of Love photography totally captured the flawless romance of this candle-lit beauty, we could’ve shared every photo with yall.  Head over to our Facebook page to see even more goodness.
