"They are even more "breathing" in person. 
I would recommend every bride get this done. 
It's a beautiful reminder of our special day and heirloom for the generations to come.

This outdoor wedding took place the weekend of the storms and tornadoes
 that devastated parts of Wimberley/San Marcos, TX. They had to wrap up their outdoor wedding way ahead of schedule to get everyone to safety.
We are so grateful that her flowers made it!

 Burnadette's Bridal Bouquet had Sunflowers, Hydrangea, Pink Roses, 
White Roses, Freesia and Peonies!

This beautiful bouquet was pressed and presented on a
light pink background.  The flowers were arranged around the
wedding invitation and framed in a white 11x14" frame.  
Note the silver plate engraved with the bride/grooms names and 
their wedding date!

 These Beveled Glass Ornaments were made from
extra petals from the brides flowers!

 Thank you, Bernadette!  You and your mom were such a joy to work with!
