Over Due March Photos

I've wanted to post the photos from Sarah and Darius' Wedding for a while! Unfortunately, May caught up with me and this took the back burner. But I'm thrilled to share them with you now! Sarah was such an energetic bride who knew exactly what she wanted! Darius would just reply "what every you want baby" which always made me chuckle.

The Marquardt Ranch did all of her flowers while maintaining her look and budget. I love when brides - esp spring and summer brides - choose bright, bold colors!

Cat with Peacock Photography of Austin, TX did a fantastic job capturing the event. She and her whole crew were wonderful to work with and really open to new ideas!

Go to her blog to see the sneak peak she first posted and more detailed ceremony photos and wedding reception photos she posted later.

Letters of Praise

We hate to toot our own horn (not really =). But this couple wrote such a sweet letter to us after her wedding I thought that I'd share it with yall.

"Amanda!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you for the perfect wedding!! We could not have done this with out you. Everything went so smoothly and the evening was just perfect. I loved the flowers and so did all of our guests. They turned out more beautiful than I ever imagined. Please thank Delores and whoever else helped for doing just an amazing job.

The ranch was beautiful as always and set up just perfectly. The whole night ran so smoothly because of you. My girlfriends who have been married commented on what a great wedding planner you were, and they could not believe you did my flowers too. :) I hope you are catching up on your rest after that busy wedding month, you deserve it!

But seriously thanks for everything you did, it was truly an amazing day, and we would not have changed a single thing. :)

Many thanks and have a great weekend,
Kendall and Jake"

Sneak Peaks From May Events

Below are some quick photos from my Iphone I snapped throughout our busy May wedding season! I'll be sure to post professional photos as they come in. But since those take a while to sort and edit so I thought you'd enjoy these for now =).
Terrific sunset view off our bluff over looking the river.

I love it when brides tell me that they check the blog often for updates and ideas. This past Saturday's bride was one such soul! She'd seen the idea/article of having a customized cake stand that matched her particular theme I'd posted on the blog months ago and loved it! I did too!! It matched the overlays that they had brought for their tables and is truely one of a kind!

This couple was so fun and adventurous! Their photographer, Josh Fowler Photography, took then out to our field where they'd just bailed some hay, and had them CLIMB ON TOP! They had a blast.

Both Bride and Groom were Texas Tech graduates. So as a nod to their almamauter the favors to their guests were none other than Texas Tech shapped cookies! Having something editable as your favor is ALWAYS a favorite of mine =).

Good Things Come To Those Who Wait

None other than our owner, boss man, Dru Steubing to Jessica Ford.
He'd been searching for the perfect ring for weeks on end. He finally found it in Dallas and couldn't wait for it to arrive. Meanwhile he put things into motion for the right time and place to "pop the question".
As a child he found a rock on the shore of the guadaulpe river that runs through his family's property and when he picked it up, it split clean in half!! He kept it at his grandmother's house for this entire time for exact purpose. He took this rock, drilled a small hole in the middle and carefully placed Jessica's engagement ring inside of it.

He later placed the rock down by the river for them to stumble upon while taking a walk one late afternoon. He'd gotten his sister Kerri to hideout near where he'd placed the "rock" in an attempt to take some photos without Jessica seeing her. It worked perfectly and they have some amazing photos as a result!

The Big Question!! Looks like she said "YES"

The Happy, Engaged, Couple!
