When I first got engaged, one of my favorite websites to peruse was Ruffled. The weddings that were featured on their site showed me just how creative and free thinking I could be with creating my wedding that was definitive of me and my (now) husband. They really opened my eyes to the possibility that a wedding didn’t have to be JUST white A-line dresses and red roses (not hating on either, however!)

Being chosen to be featured on their blog was a big celebratory event for me and my little business, that is slowly but surely growing more and more everyday. From opening my doors three months ago, I have weddings booked all the way through late June of next year.

I know a lot of event planners and industry professionals don’t really seem phased by being published, but for me, it means a lot, and I don’t think that will change. We don’t always get recognized for the hard work we put into events, and when we do, it feels really really nice.

So first and foremost, thank you to my amazing vendors: Kat Bevel, Beth Richards of Exquisite Petals, Kappel and Lauren Cloninger of Needle + Thread, Jack and Lisa Copeland of Austin Street Cafe, Thunderbird Hotel and Capri Lounge, Cibolo Creek Ranch, Americana Salon, and my wonderful coordinator, Leigh Fifelski.

And thank you, Ruffled, for giving us a way to show what we work so hard to do every day.

Done rambling! Check out the Ruffled post here.

Centerpieces for Non-Flower People

July 15, 2013

I have a lot of brides that tell me they’re just not flower people. This can cause some friction in the planning process, especially if you’re trying to convince Mom that balls of roses and crystals just aren’t you. For me, I love non-flower brides! It inspires me to get creative and come up with new and unique ways to make your table centerpieces look stunning. Here’s some examples I found that you–and Mom– might like if you are just not that into blooms. (And a plus side, you’ll probably save money and be able to reuse some of your décor! Huzzah!)
