After my first meeting with Sydney, I knew that we were going to have a great working relationship! I learned so much about her, she had such a kind soul, and she was an Aggie (bonus points…I’m an Aggie too), with a degree in Architecture. Being that she studied Architecture, I knew that clean lines and geometric shapes would be important to her. She wanted floral designs that were simple, honest, and romantic – with a heavy emphasis on greenery. Sydney also wanted copper elements to be dominant in her wedding. We brought all of it together in a way that blended seamlessly the architecture of her venue!
The ceremony and reception took place at The Prospect House in Dripping Springs, Texas. We absolutely LOVE working at this venue because of its modern design, clean lines, and the fact that it’s basically a blank canvas for all of our floral design dreams. The white walls, stainless steel, and tall windows could not have been a more perfect space for Sydney and AC’s wedding.
Sydney wanted her Bridal Bouquet to be asymmetrical, untamed, and organic. Some of the flowers used include a mixture of dinnerplate dahlias (which are only available a certain time of year, and are absolutely gorgeous), astilbe, parrot tulips, ranunculus, and assorted greens – finished with a sheer chiffon ribbon to complete the look!
The gentlemen wore boutonnieres that complimented the bouquets perfectly!
Are you ready to walk through the wedding with me? 🙂 Let’s go!
As the guests entered the breezeway, they were greeted by a luscious greenery design on the wall. We used 7′ tall branches to create this asymmetrical and organic design, it was simple yet stunning! It also provided the perfect backdrop for photos.
After walking through the breezeway, guests were escorted to the outdoor ceremony site. It was a beautiful day – not a cloud in the sky, and you could feel the Texas heat! We didn’t want to take away from the simplicity of the on-site arch, so we opted to use a simple design here.
Once the ceremony ended, guests entered the reception space…the most perfectly imperfect, gorgeous, lush, simple, and magical space.
We arrived early that day to begin our design installations, knowing that it was going to be quite time-consuming to perfect all of the details…and it was worth it!! We started with the large weather vane wheel on the ceiling, which is a properly working weather vane with a large panel on the roof. As the wind blows, the wheel moves…which was a fun design challenge. 🙂 Using a 17′ tall ladder, we carefully placed an array of greens on the wheel to create a whimsical and lush look. It was stunning!!
We then moved on to installing our iron copper hoops on each end of the room. On one end, behind the head table, we placed our 8′ hoop and adorned it with simple greens and a few pops of floral. On the other end, behind the cake table, we placed a trio of our hoops and adorned them with simple greenery. They were simple, but they really created a huge impact for the room by echoing the circular shape of the weather vane!
For the tablescapes, we wanted to keep things low-key. We used a mixture of copper terrariums, copper bud vases, copper votives, greenery, and floral to create these semi-deconstructed designs.
To create a cohesive look and fill in the space, we installed a few tall floral designs. We used modern copper stands, and topped them with oversized, whimsical, and very lush designs full of an array of greens!
No detail was missed…including the Bride and Groom’s copper chairs, accented with greenery. 🙂
It was so much fun working with Sydney and AC! They wanted their wedding to be memorable and make a simple and impactful statement. By using an array of greens, lush blooms, and all of the copper you can imagine – mission accomplished! Sydney and AC, thank you both for asking us to bring your wedding designs to life! <3 To read Sydney’s testimonial, please click here.
