I'm all about color when it comes to flowers, but I'll always have that love for a classic white and green look. I LOVED Rachel's choice to go with whites and greens for her May wedding. On such a hot summer day, the palette was so crisp and bright that I think it was the perfect fit.
I met with Rachel and her mom leading up to the wedding and could not get over how kind and laid-back they were. Chatting with them over coffee was such a pleasure and they were that sweet and calm even on the wedding day.
For Rachel's bouquet we used fluffy white peonies as the showstoppers that just continued to open up in that Texas heat.
If you are engaged, chances are you've probably had two opposing internal dialogues throughout the wedding planning process.
One side of your brain is saying, "It's my one day to splurge a little, so it's okay if I spend a little on (fill in the blank)."
The other part of you is saying, "Okay, its just one day, do I really need to spend this much on (fill in the blank)?"
I 100% had both thoughts over and over as I planned my wedding so I am in no way judging for either thought process. I'm not here to say you shouldn’t splurge on a photographer for your big day or that you need to skimp on expensive linens— it's YOUR day, and you (and whoever is helping fund your wedding) get to determine what is important to you for your wedding day.
This couple y'all, they are wholly and completely themselves and I love it. They are loving, thoughtful and FUN and their wedding day mirrored every bit of it.
Alex and Jess got married on a rainy Sunday in May at the Farmhouse in Montgomery, Texas. Something about rainy wedding days makes it so cozy and intimate. Maybe I'm a little biased because we had a little bit of rain on our day too.
For Jess's bouquet, we used some beautiful big blooms. Those peachy stunners are David Austen's Juliet Garden roses, a favorite of mine when the pallet allows. The other main blooms are white peonies (gahh I love them), quicksand roses, and white ranunculus.
I'll be honest with y'all. I'm afraid to admit it, but I think I have a bit of a black thumb. And maybe its not that I have a black thumb but just that I am really, really forgetful when it comes to watering my little plant babies. BUT I AM TRYING TO GET BETTER OK. As I type this I am actually remembering that I am supposed to water our hanging baskets today, so hold on I'm gonna go do that real quick.
Like I was saying, I do not have extensive gardening experience, butttt luckily I married a man who is arguably the best gardener I know. I mean, he lives and breathes plants and if you think I am exaggerating then ask the huge wire rack he just put in our living room to start his seeds under lights. Or ask literally anyone who has had a conversation with him. He is the real deal.
It's taken an embarrasingly long time to post about the weddings that I've gotten to be a part of this year— nonetheless, here we are sharing with you a wedding from February. From here on out, I'll be doing my best to post more promptly, so we'll see:-)
The perfect setting for a wedding the weekend after Valentine's Day, Hughe's Manor in the Washington, Heights District in Houston, Texas. The combination of modern and industrial with a chic and romantic vibe, I was a fan.
