a new arrival

Yep, this is what I've been up to... our little girl arrived in early December. Suzi captured these shots of us on a blustery day right before I popped.

And, the beautiful girl fast asleep...

a beautiful birthday

A good friend had a birthday last weekend, and I had the pleasure of doing some flowers for her home... I love the eclectic mix of artwork and furniture that she's collected and I tried to compliment that with the flower choices. Another of her friends made all the party favors and hats (check those out!), and as a surprise installed a huge pink WE (heart) U balloon installation on her front lawn. Happy Birthday Cindy!

astilbe and garden roses

This wedding was so pretty! I only had time to get a couple quick shots of the bride's and maid's bouquets before it all went out the door... the sign-in table arrangement that Amanda created was completely amazing. Maybe I'll get some good shots from the photographer.

new zealand pieris, or to some folks, andromeda

A pretty wedding of king protea, ranunculus, pieris japonica and other fun stuff... the mother of the groom was nice enough to pose for a shot of her hair flowers... combs may be my new favorite way to do that.

deep coral and aqua at the plant at kyle

I so loved this couple and their modern take on a casual wedding. The Plant at Kyle was a great fit for their style, and Emily at Bird Dog Wedding and Two Pair Photography really did spectacular jobs... see for yourself!

our not-so-little black kitty

We shared our lives for 11 years with a curious, sweet, persistent, biscuit-making, shower-water-drinking, early-morning-crying little bundle of love. Nothing made him happier than hopping into bed with us in the morning to apply his feet (and unfortunately claws) to my chest in a purring moment of affection. It was with many tears that we said goodbye to him last night, leaving a hole that will take lots of time to heal. We are giving Billy Bob extra chin scratches, and hoping that Tino's little spirit watches over us in the coming years.

summer peach, white, orange and yellow wedding

The Wildflower Center was the perfect venue for this summery, fun wedding. The setup timeframe is always tight there, so I didn't have time to get an image of the space set for the ceremony, but here is what it looked like after it was flipped and styled for the reception. Thanks to Emily at Bird Dog Wedding for the coordination.

Thanks to Blue Note Bakery for the amazing cake!

ranunculus bout

I can't remember if I showed you this bout captured by photographers The Bell and the Bear. I thought it was just perfect.

poppies and clematis with veggies

A fun veggie-inspired wedding with beautiful clematis. Andy Sams did a great job on the images.
