Karen and Chris

I'm really looking forward to the flowers for this weekend's wedding.  Well, of course, I'm not JUST looking towards creating the flowers for the wedding of Karen and Chris (because they're pretty cool) but its always exciting to be given the opportunity to order flowers in that you rarely get to.  There has been a trend going out there in flower land that hasn't fully made it here yet.  We here in New Braunfels are just now starting to see it.  The look that I speak of is that outdoors, romantic vintage look... seen in all the wedding magazines and pintrist...  flowers include succulents, garden roses, poppies, anenomes, swan myrtle, star fern, verbascum, hellebores, fritallaria, etc.  MMMMMMMMM  just thinking of being able to work with these flowers gives me goose bumps...  Succulent boutonnieres wrapped with burlap and jute...  YEAH  simple romantic elegance,  exactly what this couple exudes.  Their story is a funny one.  Chris is friends with Karen's brother but they didn't know each other growing up.  They both grew up in Florida.  How these two never met before they met is crazy.  Any way,  at Karen's brothers wedding.... (cliche, I KNOW) they were both in the bridal party, hit it off and fell in love.  So super sweet.  I still can't figure out how they never met before Karen's brother's wedding....  (scratch my head)  So, I got to meet with this great couple and found out that we have some things in common... music, motorsports, cars and motorcycles... Vroom  Vroom.  Sweet!    Karen is a bride that knows exactly what she wants.  She was very knowledgeable about flowers which was awesome.  And Chris kept us in line financialy as he is an accountant..  WHAT!!!!!  an accountant that loves fast cars and motorcycles...  WHOA.  Needless to say we've had a great time working with each other and getting to know each other.  I've linked Karen and Chris's website if you want to see more about them.

Kelly Butts and Anthony Wahlheim

Just finished my final consult with my bride, Kelly Butts.  Its going to be a fun wedding.  Technology is so amazing.  Kelly and I basically planned her entire wedding using email, Facebook and Pintrist.  Never, ever thought that would happen.  Originally when this process began, I thought that consulting this way would be impersonal and not work.  To my surprise, it was completely the opposite.  When Kelly came in today from Louisiana, I felt like I already knew her.  And our meeting went really well.  The flowers are going to amazing from the centerpieces for the rehearsal dinner at McAdoo's to the wedding and reception and the Hideout on the Horseshoe.
