Bella Flora featured on

Greetings everyone ~

Just as summer weddings are winding down, we were thrilled to see one of our spring weddings on the ever so awesome Style Me Pretty.  The wedding was filled with all things we love: peonies, mosses, cherry blossoms, the blending of cultural traditions, awesome photography and a love that was so clear in the images posted on their site.

Bella Bride: Lindsey Heim & Vincent Ip

 Another wonderful June wedding!  Lindsey Heim wed Vincent Ip on June 5, 2010 with a classic and traditional ceremony at Highland Park Presbyterian Church and a modern styled fete after at The W Hotel.   Images are courtesy of the super talented team at Shaun Menary Photography.
 Lindsey chose a very popular color palette of ivory, fresh greens and navy.  Such a clean and fresh look!

The bridesmaids wore navy toned gowns and carried these sweet bouquets of hydrangeas, roses and specks of lambs ear and verdant green hypericum berries.

I love that Lindsey gave the mothers charming peony nosegays in lieu of wristlets or pin on corsages.

On to the party!

Lindsey chose a completely non traditional look for her reception at The W Hotel.   In fact, not one of her tall designs were identical.  Each one was custom designed to be an artistic floral creation in fresh greens and clean white.  We used a combination of fluttery white phaelonopsis orchids, white and green hydrangeas, Casablanca lilies, peonies, bells of Ireland and snowball viburnum.

I love Lindsey's braided accent in her hair....and that her crowd could really party!

Sweet cake ~ love its simple styling.

Congratulations Lindsey & Vincent!  You were a joy to work with and we wish you the very best!

Behind the Scenes Video on The Brides of North Texas Blog

Brides of North Texas: Bella Flora from Beyond on Vimeo.

Earlier this spring, we were asked to participate in a photoshoot with The Brides of North Texas. We were allowed to select our own inspiration and chose to go with an outdoor setting that featured rustic woods, rich mosses , soft textures (think laces and scalloped edging) and an oh so fresh floral color palette of ivory, barely there blush and accents of viburnum green. The magazine is on newstands now. Please be sure to check it out!
