Kari and Brian

Mercedes Says...

I met Kari, along with her lovely parents, in the winter of 2011. Actually, she was the last bride I booked that year. Our first meeting set the tone for what was to come. Not only did I have the honor of designing her July wedding at the beautiful Stephen F. Austin, but now we are great friends and enjoy weekly happy hours together.

Kari came to me with an open mind. She said she was not sure what she wanted, but knew she wanted all white flowers for a classy and timeless look. Every time I mentioned any type of flower in season, she was all smiles. This bride knew, no matter the flower type, that the designs would be beautiful. She trusted us and in return we gave her what she described as, "The flowers that made everything look so pretty." Or was that the groom? Either way, we hit a home run with Brian and Kari on July 21, 2012.

The Designs

We paired up hydrangeas, peonies (the bride’s favorite), roses and orchids—all in white—with a final touch of white hypericum berries. The leaves of the white berries added a vibrant pop of color to break it all up. Her ceremony designs, as well as some of her centerpieces, consisted of spheres filled in with lovely hydrangeas, roses and white orchids protruding from the top, giving the centerpieces an eye-catching and classy look. The other half of her tables were designed with orchids submerged in three different size cylinders with floating candles for an intimate and romantic setting. This truly was a beautiful white summer wedding in Downtown Austin and a wedding we will never forget. 

The Client Says...

Mercedes did an amazing job on my wedding flowers. Everything turned out more beautiful than I could have ever imagined. Her prices are great and her creativity and professionalism made it wonderful to work with her. I would definitely recommend Mercedes for your wedding florist.
