Seriously, I love my job.

Dessert Inspiration

Some days it takes everything in me to not share all the cool projects we are working on for clients weddings. I can’t wait to share inspiration side by side with the real deal! This weekend starts our first wedding of the season and our team CAN’T WAIT!! Not only do we get to go on a field trip to Sonoma, we get to be a part of making Meredith & Andy’s visions become a…

Robotic Rock

In what might be the highlight of his career, Morgan was mixing it up at the Silcon Valley First Robotics Competition (only in silicon valley).  It would only be appropriate for him to play “Robotic Rock” by Daft Punk during one of the competitions.  Here’s a small video of the competition.  I (katie) include this for you only because I think it is SO weird that this kind of stuff exists AND that it draws…

When Designers Strike: Brian & Kristin Part 1

It’s a little bit selfish to do a post on a wedding that Brian (one of our graphic designers) did for HIMSELF, but we just can’t help it.  Brian and Kristin’s wedding was amazing–but that is besides the point.  From the day their guests received their invitation to the HOUR they spend on their website sifting through their magazine to the actual wedding day–COHESIVENESS and STYLE were present.  In a big way. Take a gander:…

Weekly Floral Design

Hi Friends:  Katie here.  I spent all evening sorting through my google reader.  I can proudly announce that I currently have NO unread blog posts.  What a RELIEF!  In preparation for our PROM boutonnieres and corsage mania we are entering into, I made a bunch of prototypes to photograph.  With the extra flowers I decided to spruce up the living room.  During Christmas, I hung this wood piece and had ornaments hanging on it.  Just…

Wylie PROM!!

Wylie Prom Boutonnieres and Corsages!  As much as we would love to go back to high school and throw a Wylie Prom–I’m not certain any of us can pass as high schoolers anymore.  But just because we can’t ATTEND prom doesn’t mean we can’t play a part.  Who is to say that high schoolers out there don’t want awesome floral corsages and boutonnieres for their big day (I mean, lets be honest, they have more…

Floral School Grad!

I (Katie) am now an official graduate of the Southern California School of Floral Design.  Crazy what two intense weeks can teach you!  I’ve been doing floral for a while, but as I mentioned before, I needed a better foundation.  Well, ask and you shall receive!  I feel like I know more than most florists and am eager to get my hands dirty and work on the upcoming projects coming our way! One project in…

Floral Design School

Katie here.  I’d like for you to meet Phil Rulloda, my floral instructor.  Yup, here he is from back in the day (wearing gaucho pants, snake skin boots and a belt he made out of palm fronds).  Awesome, right? As promised, I am blogging about my adventures at the Southern California School of Floral Design.  This blog is long overdue and I might not promise you any more–but here’s a recap of the last 7…

Weeds : Inspiration Shoot

When the Wylie Weddings Team first decided to come together as a collective, we just KNEW that we wanted to do some fun inspiration shoots. This was our first one together and we can’t stop looking at the pictures. Inspiration: I (Katie) am constantly inspired by the landscape around me. I love going for walks around the neighborhood and analyzing how I would convert it into a wedding venue. When I go for walks at the…
