This is a wedding that was just this past Saturday, April 17th. They are some sweet people who live in Hempstead... Holly actually is friends with them also!
Thier son was getting married and they asked me to do the flowers... They also asked me to do the flower beds (at least plant selection) and could not do that job by myself so I got Dusty and his guys at Glasco's to do the "heavy lifting." Thier flower beds turned out amazing and I will try to post some pictures of that as well.
The rain held off until the wedding was over. In Texas, the only two times of year to have an outdoor wedding are spring and fall. However, during both of those times you are in danger of running into freezes, record high temperatures, flooding and drought.... all within two days of each other! God Bless Texas!
The bride loves bluebonnets (who doesn't?) and wanted to incorporate a wildflower theme into her wedding. So, we used lots of lush, garden type flowers and some naturally-looking flowers to get a more fresh cut look. I used blue hydrangea, yellow roses, daises, larkspur and delphinium, sunflowers (tons) and lots of other random things that looked pretty on the flower truck!
There aren't many good pictures out of the ones I took this past Saturday, so I will post more on this wedding when I get the pictures in from thier photographer!
So I love the deep brown garden chairs, instead of the white! LOVE IT! When I saw this color I was so excited... it just looked so rich and expensive! We lined the aisle with hooks I had welded by my pastor (that's right, my pastor), and on the hooks hung mason jars full of flowers!
This is an old wagon that has been in this family for years. We loaded it full of blooming plants and then I stuck a bucket down in the middle, full of fresh cut flowers.... very European flower market, if you ask me.
The arbor pictured first was made by the father of the groom. We covered it in hand made garlands made up of pittosporum, asparagus fern and ming fern. Then, I wrapped in smilax after the garland was hung. The swag has sunflowers, roses, hydrangeas and delphinium.
Hope you are enjoying your spring! Take time to smell all the flowers, not just the roses!
