Ashley and Spencer...Lakeway Resort Wedding!

We love bright pinks, oranges and greens and this wedding is the perfect example! Lots of great personal touches made this wedding vibrant and gorgeous! Some of the flowers incorporated into the decor were dahlias, orchids, tulips and rannuculas all perfect for the fall season.

The fabulous Erin Woosley of EEphotography has been kind enough to share her images with us! You can see more of her work here. She captured the energy of this wonderful couple and the colorful start to their new life together. Ashley and Spencer were married on October 3rd. We wish them the best!

Beautiful shades inspired by the harvest

This lovely wedding was inspired by the shades of harvest. The colors can be applied in the spring or fall seasons. Such a beautiful combination of yellows, peaches, pinks, oranges and greens work well against the neutral background. It's important to keep the season in mind when deciding on flowers for any event. We love the look of this simply stunning wedding. Thanks to Amanda, the bride, for sharing the images with us!
