Lisa and Randy

We had the pleasure in May of working on one of my all-time favorite weddings. Not only were Lisa and Randy a dream couple, they brought along a dream team of family and friends as well. Randy's sister, Katie Decker Hyatt of Signora e Mare, styled the day. Katie's friend, Sara, founder of Wedding Sparrow, travelled from England to help coordinate the details. And to top it off, Ryan Ray, mentioned in my last post, was there with his lovely wife, Cary, to photograph it all. The wedding was featured recently on Wedding Sparrow, so more images can be seen here.

The ceremony was held at the family ranch outside Comfort, Texas, where guests walked through hundreds of paper cranes hanging from trees down to the riverfront where an old tree served as the focal point.

The design was carefully coordinated by Katie down to the tiniest details.

And the results were magical. Here are Sara and Katie about to enjoy the fruits of their labor. Best wishes to Lisa and Randy and thank you for letting us be a part of your day!

Top Notch Photographers

Having a top notch photographer for your wedding is key in my book and Martha Stewart Weddings has compiled a list to make the job a bit easier. The list is divided by region and I was thrilled to see that we have had the privilege of working with all four of the photographers in the Southwest. As floral designers, we are extremely grateful for photographers who capture our fleeting work—so my hat's off to this crew!

First on the list is one of my all time favs, Suzi Q Varin of Q Weddings. She photographed the first of my work to be published back in the early days of Sprout. Not only is she incredibly talented, she's just so darn fun too! I know I've said it before, but check out her blog for a daily dose of her talent.

Next up is Ryan Ray, who captured the beauty of one of our early summer weddings—of which we will have more to show soon. Ryan travelled with his wife, Cary, to be a part of this wedding in Comfort, Texas, styled by Katie Decker Hyatt (sister of the groom) and coordinated by Katie's friend, Sara, who is the founder of Wedding Sparrow—needless to say, a dream team.

Another dream team was having Taylor Lord shoot this spring wedding at Becker Vineyards along with the talents of Mayhar Design. I hope to have more of this one to show soon as well. Taylor also photographed this Metallic Desert styled shoot at Enchanted Rock.

And last, but certainly not least, is the husband and wife team of The Nichols who captured the essence of the Hill Country with this wedding from last fall.

Something to note—each of these photographers works primarily with film—another reason they're tops!

Autumnal Color

Who says autumn has to be dark and dramatic—I came across this bouquet last fall and fell in love with the color palette. It could actually work any time of year, but adding in the fall elements of leaves and berries puts it over the top for me.

We had a lot of lovely going on this spring and while we wait for the professional photos, here's a peak at a few of the bouquets we took time to quickly snap before being delivered.

Jewelry by Gresham

Full disclosure—Gresham is my niece. That said, I can't think of another line of jewelry that is better suited for Sprout. Her style matches ours perfectly and I love how she changes it up every season. Here are some of her latest pieces incorporating agate beads, leather tassels, arrowhead shapes and slices of geodes.

We have more in the way of bracelets and ear rings as well. Gresham has recently expanded and has her line in over 20 stores nationwide. Check out here website and follow her on Instagram (greshamjewelry) to keep up with her latest designs.
