early spring wedding | TEXAS FARMER FLORIST


I think early march in the south might be the best time to get married. The flowers that are blooming at this time are spectacular. Rosy throated daffodils, ruffly tulips, curvaceous spirea, and the sweetest muscari really shone on this day. We were hoping for black and white anenomes, but nature didn’t cooperate, and so we did without. I don’t think we missed them too much! Last winter was so long and so cold. It snowed 4 times on the farm throughout that winter! Before that, I had seen snow in Texas maybe 4 times total in my 28 years. I am hoping and praying this winter is much shorter and kinder to us. I think it will be, the daffodils are already pushing up through the ground, and many wildflowers that are harbingers of early spring are already in bloom. I cannot wait to see the sunny faces of the daffodils and smell the sweetness of a hyacinth. There is no place better to be than a garden in early spring.


We were hoping to use a lot more product from the farm, but as said above, winter was so cold and long, we barely had the chance to use what we did! Daffodils, hyacinth, spirea, redbud, and jasmine came from our farm, and the rest from the wholesale market. I love the way everything turned out - so very springy.


So sweet in a hyacinth crown!


branding session | TEXAS FARMER FLORIST


have you ever entered an instagram giveaway? i’ve been entering here and there since i first started on instagram a couple years ago. well, christine of christine gosch branding did a giveaway of 2 mini brand sessions, and we were lucky enough to win! i don’t think i’ve ever won ANYTHING from a raffle before, and this was quite a special one to win. since then, i’ve been entering every instagram giveaway i come across - i’m feeling lucky! mostly, i’ve come up empty handed, but i did recently win a gorgeous heirloom rose bush from grace rose farm - a good year for instagram giveaways LOL.


christine was the most gracious host, and had a delicious spread of snacks and treats once we arrived at her home studio. she shoots everything entirely on film, giving all the photos a delicate, timeless feel. she is so very talented, exceedingly kind, and tremendously easy to work with. i am a former wedding photographer, and i absolutely hate being in front of the camera. but she was sweet and patient with me. i love how the photos turned out, and am already budgeting for a second session next year. if you need photos to elevate your brand, get in touch with christine. she’s the best of the best!
