Exquisite! There are no other words that best describe Alyson and Greg’s special day. This bride put her heart into every detail and it showed.
This magical chuppah was the first statement piece the guests were greeted with. Our bride had a vision of floating orchids and our team of designers were able to bring that vision to life! White mini cymbidiums were strung and affixed to the flower covered chuppah.
After the ceremony the guests found their place cards on a table with a clean crisp look of all white phalaeonopsis orchids in Italian flared vases.
We love when brides choose to have two or three different styles of centerpieces with varying heights, especially in large ballrooms. A third of her tables had six different size candlesticks in the center, some with floating candles and some with flowers; a tight nosegay of all white roses, a mound of white hydrangea and stems of white phalaeonopsis orchids.
Another centerpiece style she chose was this oversized low round vase with all white flowers that was surrounded by multi height floating candlesticks.
The remaining guest tables consisted of 3 cubes of her signature white flowers with floating candles mixed in.
This head table is straight out of a fairytale! Long, glass containers filled to the brim of lush white flowers ran the length of the table on each side with an assortment of the floating candles in the middle. There was a single orchid blossom placed on each of the napkins to finish off the elegant look.
Alyson wanted something nontraditional for her cake and the end result was this stunner! She went with three smaller bridal cakes lined with large, lush cages of all white flowers and floating candlesticks tucked amongst them.
This was a magical night that we were so blessed to be a part of. We are thrilled when we are able to make our brides dreams come true and Alyson was sure to let us know we accomplished that! She called us multiple times after the wedding to let us know how much she loved it and even wrote this sweet review!
This was the Party of the Century! We were lucky enough to be a part of this amazing Super bowl party and work with some of the best vendors out there! This took place on Super bowl Sunday at the stunning Hotel Emma. Guests were greeted with a 50 foot turf runner, cheerleaders, football players and even a mascot that led to oversized megaphones and a drum line to start the party off right!
There were three different areas of the party, the Owners Private event, the Pub and the kids hangout! The kids had a blast with different gaming systems, arcade games and lots of party favors!
The Pub was set up with Karaoke, neon signs, electronic dart board, a pool table and of course big screens to watch the game!
The owners party took place in the main ballroom. Lush arrangements of red roses atop sequined linens were placed throughout the room with a show stopping piece in the center of a round red LED lit bar. Wait staff had custom football jerseys and bartenders were decked out in referee attire, complete with whistle.
Leading to the ballroom was an action station framed with 2 large pilsner arrangements of all red roses.
It certainly was an “action” station as the staff at Emma continuously filled this counter with gorgeous food presentations all evening.
And if that wasn’t enough, check out the outrageous dessert table!
The special treat of the night was a surprise for all of the guests. The hosts planned a spectacular Half-Time show with DJ Stradivari “The Violin Guy”. He is a worldwide entertainer and puts on the most mesmerizing performance where he plays different instruments, sings and has an accompanying laser show!
What an exciting time for this family, who celebrated the nomination of their brother at the Academy Awards. Because they could not all join him in Los Angeles they hosted an event here in San Antonio and pulled out all the stops, including the red carpet!
The Guests were able to take fun pictures with oversized statues and our host presented their own Oscars including Best Dressed Guest!
The tables were dressed in black satin cloths with red runners that had film strip edging and walk-of-fame stars. Oversized crystal trees, hanging candles and red roses were worthy of this elegant Academy Award night. Here at Alamo Plants & Petals we absolutely love theme parties and this was no exception!
This is the year for gorgeous rehearsal dinners! We had the pleasure to help kick off the weekend right for this great couple. There were so many personal touches and details the Groom’s family put into this to help make it even more special. Rustic has never been more elegant!
A portion of the guest tables had unique arrangements of hydrangea, callas, orchids, succulents, roses and pincushion protea created in wood cork containers. Each arrangement included antlers that were provided by the Grooms family and thornless cactus were used as place cards.
The remaining guests tables were equally as stunning! Antlers, tucks of flowers, limestone, copper votive candles and tall iron candelabras ran the length of the 30 foot table. Orchids, succulents, hypericum berries, callas, roses, de-petaled sunflowers and pincushions added great texture to the table. It was a magical site to see!
The head table had a large iron tree wrapped with honeysuckle vine, hanging candles, tucks of flowers and antlers around the base. Each place setting had a wood slice charger and a pheasant feather to give it more of a personal touch for the bride and groom.
The place card table featured handmade shotgun shell holders and was flanked with 2 large arrangements of lilies, orchids, roses, green trick, hypericum berries, sunflower centers, pincushions, callas and greenery. We incorporated provided antlers as well as two taxidermied quail that the Grooms family brought in. All of these items helped personalize their special night!
While we have worked with Keith at Club Giraud for many years and many events, we knew this wedding needed to top them all! After all, it was for his very own daughter!
Heather and Joe celebrated their special day at the historic Club Giraud.
The elegant tone of the evening was evident as the guests arrived at the entry door decorated with an opulent wreath of open roses, hydrangea and lilies in the softest shades of white, ivory and blush (and that was only the beginning!)
Upon entering the Club, the sconces that lined the hallway were decorated with large flower badges made of white hydrangea, ivory and blush garden roses, white lilies and Italian ruscus.
The bride and groom at the outdoor ceremony were framed by two large and lush urns in the same color palette.
The aisle was lined with fresh rose petals and chairs were trimmed with nosegays of flowers in clear glass cones with groupings of candles completing her dreamy vision.
The bride carried a glamorous bouquet of white hydrangea, ivory garden roses, blush roses, gardenias and rhinestone embellished stephanotis and was finished off with her personal broaches to add that special sparkle.
The mothers carried delicate nosegays of ivory spray roses and rhinestone embellished stephanotis.
One of our favorite personal touches was the boutonniere for the Father of the Bride, a wine connoisseur, made with a wine cork and a fresh rose.
Moving from the ceremony to reception the guests were in awe of the stunning centerpieces and floral chandeliers. The guest tables held black vases with lush spheres of ivory and blush floral arrangements. Looking up was just as beautiful as looking around the room.
Leaving no stone unturned, the dancing continued in a room equally embellished with grand floral arrangements.
A fantastic cake by Cathy Young (is there anything from her that’s not?) was a masterpiece. Tucking in hydrangea and roses between the layers and adding tailored black bows made this great tasting cake beautiful to look at.
A gorgeous basket adorned with badges of flowers and filled with fresh petals was placed for guests to grab a handful of petals to celebrate the Bride’s and Groom’s sendoff. Petal baskets make for the prettiest pictures!
Congratulations Heather and Joe. Your day was gorgeous and we were honored to be a part of it!
We love gorgeous parties but this baptism takes the cake!! Jacey wanted something soft with a garden feel yet still sophisticated! The outdoor setting on this perfect sunny day was the perfect backdrop for the arrangements she chose.
Arrangements were placed in a collection of classic blue and white ceramic pottery.
The flowers included dahlias, tulips, hydrangea, garden roses, spray roses, ranunculus, silver brunia, wispy vines and seeded eucalyptus in tones of pinks, blush, peach and cream. The arrangements were very feminine but the contrast of the vase kept it sophisticated and unique just like Jacey wanted.
Tents were placed throughout the yard and patio that added to the party’s elegance.
Arrangements, both grand and petite, were placed on all of the outdoor tables as well as distributed inside of the home.
The lovely cake had a lush topper made of white hydrangea, pink and peach garden roses, blush ranunculus, pink tulips and seeded eucalyptus.
A Special shout out to Debbie Fisher with Luxe Decor for her beautiful linens, chairs and
tents and to Matthew Alvarado for supplying us with these gorgeous photos.
Congratulations to all of us for being featured in Style me Pretty for this amazing party.
Claire and Vigil were married at the beautiful Dominion Country Club on October 12th, 2014. The ceremony took place under a stunning chuppah covered in smilax, honeysuckle vine and badges of fuschia stock.
The bride carried a lush bouquet of white stock, vendela roses, white lisianthus with soft tendrils, white hydrangea and cream cymbidium orchids with fuschia throats. The bridesmaids carried very colorful bouquets of blue hydrangea, citron green fuji mums, green hypericum berries, fuschia stock and fushcia dendrobium orchids.
The flower girl looked very sweet in her floral halo made of ivy leaves, fuschia dendrobium orchids and green hypericum berries while carrying her basket trimmed to match.
The guest tables had three different styles of centerpieces that were mixed among them. The first was an oversized bubble bowl with winding pink mini callas, blue hydrangea, fuschia dendrobium and cymbidium orchids, and citron green fujis and hypericum berries.
The second arrangement was a tall cylinder with a single stem of fuschia cymbidium orchids. The pin spotting on this made it look magical.
The third centerpiece style was a show-stopping asymmetrical arrangement atop a tall clear glass vase. Blue hydrangea, fuschia dendrobium orchids, green dendrobium orchids, green fuji mums, green trick and pink mini callas.
All three arrangements looked fabulous together and were eye catching to the guests.
Congratulations Claire and Virgil, thank you for letting us be a part of your special day!
