McKinney’s Historic Flour Mill

McKinney’s Historic Flour Mill

We have to talk up the space in which The Lily Pad resides. The Flour Mill in McKinney is quickly becoming THE place to be married! With the second, bigger and more formal venue space opening last month, and the patio and porches almost finished on both buildings, The Flour Mill is still a secret […]

Wedding season is here!

Wedding season is here!

Georgeous weather and brides abound this April…..and we are lucky to be able to accent them with their chosen custom florals. Here are a few of our favorite images from last weekend. The Lily Pad Flowers is located inside The Flour Mill – a renovated, rustic wedding venue in a working mill….McKinney, TX

Memorial Day Weekend – Welcomin...

Memorial Day Weekend – Welcoming 7 new Mrs.

Three day weekends have become so popular for weddings! I think the venues haven’t caught on, and they still discount a Sunday wedding, so these 3-days make for a great holiday weekend wedding -at a discount! That said, we are busiest during these weekends. Last weekend, we had 7 weddings – a total of 50 […]

Vintage, by any other name…

Vintage, by any other name…

Call it vintage.  Call it gardeny.  Call it romantic.  Whatever you call it, it’s been the prevailing theme for weddings for the past several years and the trend isn’t slowing.  Venues like that which houses us, converted 100+ year old industrial sites with broken out windows, exposed piping and big heavy wood elements lend themselves […]

We are very excited to be partnering with Cooper Spa at Craig Ranch for their reception room…..weekly flowers to brighten an already happy trip to the spa. I love delivering these flowers – such a calming place! And yellow was the color of the week for weddings – it’s Spring, so what says Spring more […]

The Grand Hotel and Ballroom

The Grand Hotel and Ballroom

This weekend we got to stay local – 4 weddings, all in McKinney. One of my favorite rooms in downtown is The Grand Ballroom. We got to visit there today And what a gorgeous bouquet and centerpiece ensemble the bride chose – green and white, garden-feel bouquets with tons of fragrant freesia! Chandler’s Garden is […]

When it works, it works

When it works, it works

Even without a swatch, the purple dresses were a perfect match for the purple lisianthus in the bride’s maids bouquets. And the bride’s idea to add brighter red and corals make the bouquets a beautiful accent to some very happy girls! Match a bright boutonniere and some pretty arch florals and this wedding at Hickory […]

This week is really the beginning of the wedding season for The Lily Pad. We have been working steadily each weekend, but with 4 weddings and a Prom this weekend, we are in high gear for an 8 week run of multiple wedding weekends. Celina High School gets us started with their Masquerade themed night […]

Formal, with fish

Formal, with fish

Two weddings this weekend at the Bella Donna Chapel in McKinney. I got here early and had the opportunity to take pictures of the bouquet – such an amazing setting on an average day, but today’s stormy clouds add the most amazing backdrop. Yesterday, our bride Brandi used the same location with an entirely different […]
