Spring has sprung in San Antonio (for weddings, anyway)!

February showers bring March flowers and weddings (or something like that here in San Antonio – by May it will already be 100 degrees :-) ).

Gregg just informed me yesterday that we have done over 500 weddings since we purchased the Inn (562, to be exact). Wow! That’s incredible. And March is already booked up for weddings since it’s such a beautiful month here with all the flowers in bloom and the trees budding and blooming. Brides are thinking spring also, as seen in this assortment of gerbera daisies.

More Purples

After I posted the Popular Purple entry, we have had some brides ask about what a more “traditional” bouquet may look like in purple. Although I have done many of them, I realized that I didn’t really have a picture on file. I found this one (with the bonus of a cute little flower girl). This is an example of the white and lavender roses with the dark purple filler flowers. Sometimes the lavender isn’t so true and actually clashes with the purple, in which case I don’t use the lavender roses and add more of the filler with white roses, but still in the traditional, formal ball bouquet, rather than the looser-looking bunch of flowers. Hope that makes sense.

December in Full Swing!

I can’t believe December is half over already, and the busiest part is yet to come! We are booked up through the end of the year. Gregg was the photographer today and although his pictures are usually quite good (of course, my editing doesn’t hurt either), this picture was extraordinary right from the camera. Cheers to everyone this holiday season!
