Jan 17, 2017: Carly + Nathan’s Moody Industrial Wedding

Carly and Nathan’s downtown Austin wedding gave us all the heart eyes. They were the first couple to break in 800 Congress, a new venue in the heart of downtown Austin, and I’d say their day was far from experimental. The exposed brick paired with the suspended Edison Bulbs, heavy candle light, and dark floral combination was like cool girl heaven!!! Our lines are open to the next bold bride who isn’t afraid of the dark side….

Jan 2, 2017: Lennie + Matt

When your back yard is just as pretty as any venue out there, you call in the pros and have them come to you! As a vendor there truly isn’t much that compares to the warm fuzzies we get being invited into someone’s home. Thanks so much to this sweet family who let us in on their intimate backyard “I-dos”.

Dec 28, 2016: Chelsea + Cameron Part II

After exchanging vows Chelsea and Cameron ditched the muted soft tones from their sweet ceremony and went BIG + BOLD, with their peony filled reception at Hotel Granduca.

What exactly made this wedding so memorable for us at the studio? It literally was a torrential downpour from the moment we stepped foot at Granduca. It must have rained harder that day than any other for the entire year. Lightening was crashing around the outdoor courtyard, and thunderous applause was roaring above our heads.

There was nothing left to do, and no one way around it. All we could do was roll up our pant legs, kick off our shoes and dive in. For hours we pushed, pulled, flowered, draped, and splashed! Every one of us was sopping wet and hustling to make sure our bride got everything she hoped for, rain or shine, baby!!!

Then, as if, timed by some karmic cosmos, the clouds parted and the sun beamed down on that courtyard just moments before guests began to arrive. It was a reminder then, and now as we close out of 2016, that when we weather the storm together the sun will always eventually shine again. Thank you to all our 2016, brides and congratulations to all our newly engaged couples. We can’t wait to see what 2017, holds!

Dec 27, 2016: Chelsea + Cameron Part I

As we reflect on 2016, I can safely say Chelsea and Cameron had the most memorable wedding for us at WSP. In fact, it’s one we will probably all tell stories about for years to come…. I’ve broken their wedding into two parts because for their ceremony the couple opted for neutral tones and muted shades of pink to exchange “I dos”, and went BIG AND BOLD for their Hotel Granduca reception.

Continue to Part II tomorrow see what exactly made this wedding celebration so memorable for the team here at WSP (aside from this insanely gorgeous bouquet of course!)

Mar 21, 2016: Anneka + Hooman

So thrilled to FINALLY be posting Anneka and Hooman’s stunning wedding at Wild Onion Ranch. This was definitely a fan favorite here at the shop. These two were so kind and sweet and their vision for their wedding day was so… US. Their wedding day was an unseasonably chilly Texas day and despite it all these two braved the cold and drizzle to have the outdoor ceremony of our dreams. These photos from Caroline + Ben Photography prove it was well worth the goosebumps…

Mar 18, 2016: WE HAD A BABY!!

Sorry about the long hiatus from the blog! We’ve been so consumed with loving on our new shop baby, Noah Sawran, that everything else ceased to matter. Babies have that kind of power I suppose.

Baby Noah is already showing all the promise to be a great floral designer. If he doesn’t like the placement of that spray rose he won’t be shy to pull that sucker out, chew it up and toss it on the floor! He must take after mom (insert that winky emoji here)

So here’s what we’ve been up to since that toasty August day here in Texas, when Noah came bursting onto the scene…

Hello, new friend

Maternity leave? What’s that?

Screen Shot 2016-03-18 at 1.45.25 PM

Definitely going to put those David Austin Roses in my mouth, mom.

Sometimes Melony snuggles me

Sometimes Chelsa gets to babysit me…. Or used to.

But I’m growing so fast

Oh, and did we mention his mama already got Noah his own dog? What a crazy lady! What a lucky baby!
