Becca & Nick: Rustic and Charming

Becca and Nick’s wedding was such a special day.  We flirted with rain (well, flooding, really), but managed to have a beautiful outdoor ceremony at Heritage Springs in Anna.  The rustic, handmade vibe of the venue was reflected in the decor – hand-pressed flowers, family heirlooms, and homemade table numbers.  Dinner and a sweet first dance gave way to a rockin’ dance party in a thunderstorm.  Ben Q Photography did an amazing job of capturing a day that was full of faith, family, and fun.  Check it out!

Styled Shoot – Let Love Sparkle

We are super excited to share photos from one of our styled shoots!  Published on The Perfect Palette, this vignette is full of glittery gold and bright pops of color.  We worked with a wonderful team of vendors to get this put together – check them out at the bottom of the post!

It seems like so many brides use gold as an accent or an afterthought, but we love the sparkle and elegance gold can bring to a palette when used as the main color! When designing this shoot, we wanted to let the gold shine center stage, and just enhance it with some bright pops of color.

Let Love Sparkle Wedding Dress

We used a bright blend of fuchsia, orange, and yellow to bring out the natural gold tints in all of our details. From the envelopes to the cake, the dress sash to the makeup, gold is the star of this design.

We really wanted to approach this from a bride’s perspective in terms of what might be realistic for her wedding day. So, for example, instead of be-ribboning all of the chair backs (which, how fun is that pop of color?), we only did this for the bride and groom’s chairs, making it a more manageable extra touch.

The paper suite helped us tie together the more modern linen and place settings with the industrial setting and fixtures.  We had a great time figuring out how to bring in the ever-popular chalkboards without skewing everything super rustic or DIY!

The cake was another place we wanted to bring the gold center stage.  These uneven tiers really emphasize the explosion of gold!

This soda bar let us showcase one of our favorite things about Hickory Street Annex, the venue where we shot.  We adore the L-O-V-E letters on the reclaimed wood wall!  The golden light and the bright colors of the soda subtly reflects the color palette of the table.

Bouquet Style Guide

The bridal bouquet, a traditional element to any wedding, comes in many different forms and styles.  To help navigate the differences, we’ve put together a glossary of the most common bouquet types!


This is the most common bouquet style, and is traditionally comprised of a compact cluster of flowers that is wrapped tightly with ribbon with the stems cut evenly.  It is often comprised of one to three flower types for maximum impact!


Often carried by flower girls, the pomander is a flower covered ball tied with a ribbon at the top.  It can be held by hand, or hung on the wrist.  The pomander also makes a great decor accent along the aisle!


This style is a great option for bridesmaids!  The posy bouquet is a small, round bouquet, often tied with ribbon.


The cascading bouquet was once made popular in the early 20th century, and has come back with a bang!  A variety of blooms and foliage can be used to create princess-level drama in this waterfall styled bouquet.


This style is very similar to the cascade bouquet, but more compact and held cradled in the arm.  While it is not the most popular style of bouquet today, it’s great for the bride who dares to be different!


The hand-tied bouquet is one of the most common and classic styles.  It often includes a variety of flowers and foliage, densely bunched together and tied loosely.


Created by wiring and assembling individual flower petals to a single stem by hand, the composite bouquet is for the bride who wants to make a statement!

Vendor Spotlight: The Family Greenhouse – part 2

TheFamilyGreenhouseLogo blog sizeOn Monday, we talked about The Family Greenhouse and what they were about.  Here’s some more insight into this new vendor friend of ours:

5. Do you offer individual counseling if couples feel they need more help?

Yes, we do. Our workshops include a follow-up with Scott or both of us and there is definitely more care available for a small fee.

6. Do you work with same-sex couples?

All couples are welcome to come to our workshops or to meet with us 2-on-2.

7. If couples build a rapport with you and Scott, will Scott or you officiate their ceremony?

Absolutely. We believe a wedding is a special day and therefore the officiant and the couple should be a good fit for each other. Therefore, Scott is available for officiating based on an initial meeting he has with the bride and groom to ensure that it is a good fit.  You can find more about officiating on our website.

8.  As a wedding officiant, do you recommend to couples that they use a wedding planner? 

YES!  We see the role of wedding planner to be incredibly valuable.  The wedding planners I (Scott) have worked with have alleviated much of the wedding day stress, both expected and unexpected.  By having a wedding planner, the entire family is able to relax and enjoy the celebration. I could share many stories of weddings without planners, but I will leave it at that. :-)

9. What do you enjoy most about working with couples?

We enjoy getting to know the couples we work with and watching them interact with each other in a new and different way.  We can tell they feel re-energized and excited to implement tools to make them successful.  But a favorite is when one of the people in the relationship doesn’t want to be there because they don’t think they need it, and they leave saying “thank you so much… I am SO glad we came. :-)”


Ready to sign up yet?  Well, you’re in luck!  They have sessions planned for March 1st and 8th, April 1st, 8th and 15th, and May 10th. Visit their website at for more information and to register!

Vendor Spotlight: The Family Greenhouse

TheFamilyGreenhouseLogo blog sizeWe recently met Scott and Abigail from The Family Greenhouse and we had to share!  They are a wonderful couple with a mission to educate couples on skills that make a better marriage and we love that they are a local McKinney resource.  To give you some details, we asked them to answer some questions for us so you could hear from them in their own words.  We had a lot of questions, so we’re making this a two part blog.  Here’s the first group of questions.  Take a look and we hope if you are looking for some pre-marital counseling, you’ll check them out!

1. What is The Family Greenhouse?

The Family Greenhouse is a nonprofit organization that helps teach people relationship skills.  We lead workshops and do relationship coaching so that individuals can better communicate, accept each other’s personalities, resolve conflict, deal with stress and overall learn to thrive in their relationships.

2. How did you and Scott get started on this?

Although we both have communication degrees, we realized early in marriage that we didn’t know how to communicate well in our relationship.  Our own pre-married counseling wasn’t very helpful. We found after just a few years that our relationship was in trouble and at the crossroads of possible divorce. We went to a marriage conference and there we found many helpful tools and principles. After we applied those tools in our marriage (and later with our kids) and saw success, we were eager to make all of it accessible for other couples. When Scott was in grad school, he took several marriage-counseling courses and we began counseling couples together.  Without a comprehensive relationship book that had everything we wanted in one place, we decided to make our own curriculum for pre-married & married couples as well as families.

3. Are these workshops Christian based?  What if couples prefer something more secular?

Although we come from a Christian worldview, our workshops focus on practical tools that would help any couple, regardless of faith.  We have workshops available for churches to use, but we have to be asked to offer the more faith-based, biblical version. We want all couples and families to have the tools for a successful marriage.

4. What do you want couples to get from this workshop?

We want couples to walk away from the Starting Strong workshop with a game plan of how their relationship will get better over the next week, month, and year and over a lifetime.   In addition to a plan, we hope they will have tools in their tool belt to help them better understand each other’s personalities, communicate more effectively, manage stress as it comes, and resolve conflict successfully.  We hope to save you hours of fighting and hundreds of dollars in counseling!  :)

Our premarital workshop also uses one of the most widely used couples’ assessment in the country- Prepare~Enrich.  Before couples come to the workshop they complete an online assessment.  The results of that assessment are wonderful insights into how their unique relationship operates and what those 2 people can do to be stronger and healthier.  Scott has used this assessment for years and is a certified trainer for others who want to facilitate the assessment.


Check back on Wednesday to see the rest of what they had to say!  Want to meet them now?  Visit their website at

Jessica & Shea: An Engaging Affair

We had such a great time working with Jessica and Shea to plan their December engagement party at Plano’s Urban Crust!  It was an intimate, casual party for their closest family to celebrate their engagement.  From the flowers to the food, the entire event was true to the couple, and a lovely time for all involved!  Jessica and Shea were so wonderful and fun to work with, and we cannot wait for their September wedding!
