Unique Flowers for a Countryside Wedding in North Texas

Texas wedding with horses

From cactus to cattle to Texas-raised vendors, these images showcase a modern, elegant approach to a country wedding theme. Rather than using predictable rustic or cowboy elements that are often found in western or barn styled weddings, the details created a more subtle, though still acutely, country vibe. EKD used dried flowers, various types of cacti, and the “Yellow Rose of Texas” in the floral designs. Rather than creating a typical bouquet and boutonniere, Emily transformed the bouquet into a floral sleeve that allowed the bride who is also a dancer, greater freedom of movement. The groom and bride both sported accessories from Pinto Ranch which is known as “the premier purveyor of the finest western wear and accessories in the United States for western lifestyles.” The photographer took an editorial approach to capturing the unique, elegant style. Rather than a veil, the bride wore a hair piece made by the florist with plant-dyed silk ribbon which created the same effect as a veil but with a contemporary feel and greater practicality when eloping in the countryside of North Texas surrounded by horses and cattle. The Raincloud dress by Leanne Marshall was the perfect gown because it seemed to characterize the big blue Texas sky that so many country songs have longingly referenced. This work was featured on both Brides of North Texas and Green Wedding Shoes. For another example of a blooming lapel and floral sleeve, take a look at this bold, beautiful couple.

Flowers are both the culmination and the unification of all of the other wedding elements. A beautiful, purposeful arrangement declares, "this is beauty; this is the joy that was always intended." 

With a desire to serve each couple well and a passion for unbridled creativity, Emily limits the number of clients she takes each year. This allows her to enjoy the design process for each wedding while also affording time to carry out her own creative visions for the pure joy of creating something beautiful out of nothing. Many of these ideas and visions are shared on the blog to inspire others.
