We had a handful of special weddings in the spring of 2020.
Nobody saw the pandemic coming, and as a new wedding florist in DFW it was the very last thing we needed. However, by staying open and flexible we were able to help some wonderful people celebrate their love and committment. We were really in the perfect position for tiny weddings – being home based and not having employees yet, we were able to design on a small scale. The first bride to reach out was Megan.
They decided on an elopement with only their family present. I was so honored to be part of their day! I snapped a couple of photos of Megan before the ceremony, she was absolutely glowing and one of the happiest brides I’ve ever seen.
We used peach and white ranunculus, white scabiosa, blue delphinium, geranium foliage and beautiful spring spirea branches. She wanted a flower crown which is always a favorite to design.

Soon after was the wedding of Jessica, who went through 8 different venues as one after the other closed. They stayed vigilant and ended up at beautiful Avalon Legacy Ranch.

We made her bouquet with Amnesia roses, Pink Mink protea, white clematis, blue thistle, jasmine vine and eucalyptus.
We were asked to do a couple of portrait bouquets during the quarantine as well, as the weeks stretched on it was great to have the opporunity to work on these. First was beautiful Alyssa. Her bouquet featured white anemones and raspberry butterfly ranunculus. I went to the flower market the day before it closed (for weeks), I’ll never forget how empty the cooler at the market was and how quiet everything was that day. I was very happy to find the flowers I did and was glad Alyssa liked the bouquet!

Finally was a portrait bouquet for Hayden. By the time her session came around things were beginning to open up a bit again. We used white anemones, blush spray roses, Vendela roses, peach stock, white lisianthus, and succulents for a full rounded bouquet.
The spring of 2020 brought a lot of unique challenges, but it also brought some wonderful people to us, and proved that love (and determination) conquer all. We’ll never forget them!
