Bride and Bloom is operated by Texas native, Alisa McCorquodale, who earned a B.S. from Sam Houston State University in Horticulture, then went on to Kansas State University where she completed her M.S. in Plant Science. She has always been interested in the anatomy and physiology of plants and their ability to produce food and fiber. Later she came to appreciate them for their beauty and symbolism.
Alisa developed a true passion for floral artistry after attending The Benz School of Floral Design at Texas A&M and teaching Floral Design in public school for 10 years. Her favorite designs have a lush, wild and organic vibe inspired by nature.
Growing up, a favorite childhood memory is playing behind the blue hydrangea bush at her grandmother’s home, and she still remembers the smell of gardenias coming through her mother’s kitchen windows.
When not amid flowers, you can find her with her husband and two children traveling in their beloved Airstream. Keeping hens, gardening and daydreaming about places to go and see are among her favorite things.

What People Are Saying About Bride & Bloom
I am so, so happy that Alisa was able to do our flowers for our wedding! Alisa was WONDERFUL to work with! She is such a fun and friendly person. I have always been interested in the Victorian Language of Flowers and Alisa was able to create a beautiful bouquet that had all the right colors AND the perfect symbolic meanings! On the day of the wedding, she arrived very early to start setting up. Everything turned out just so lovely!! I’m so happy that we were able to work with Alisa.
Absolutely gorgeous flowers! She is so knowledgeable and has an AMAZING Vision when it comes to designing your floral arrangements. Highly recommend for all your floral needs!

Alisa from Bride and Bloom did an amazing job for us at our wedding. She made the perfect flower choices and eliminated all of the stress. I highly recommend her.
Bride & Bloom was THE best choice that we made for this wedding! Alisa was so wonderful to work with. She has the most cheerful personality and was so patient with me as I changed my mind several times. The bouquets and flower arrangements were so beautiful! So many people commented about how amazing the arrangements were. She is very talented and knows what she is doing. My daughter wanted very full white flowers and Alisa explained to me how she makes sure they are at their fullest when she refrigerates them and that gave me confidence in her ability to make the arrangements we desired. She worked so hard to help us get the look we wanted and stay in budget. She genuinely wanted us to get what we wanted without any unnecessary expenses. She saved me from having to rent vases for the center pieces which allowed me to use the extra money for more arrangements. She came early to set up and I was so pleased to see everything that we talked about worked on by her staff. Not just the table arrangements but the welcome sign arrangement as well as the olive branches we talked about for the place settings. She even brought a pedestal that I rented from another vendor in the same town so I didn’t have to pay to have it brought and picked up! She went above and beyond to help us and did such a wonderful job! The bride at the last minute decided she wanted to put some flowers in her hair and Alisa accommodated her with extra flowers she had and it was such a beautiful addition to her vail. This wedding would not have been the same without Alisa! We are so grateful for how beautiful she made everything. Thank you Alisa!!!
My flowers were amazing i wanted my flowers to look like wild flowers and alisa captured my vision perfectly…. the flowers are so beautiful.. Thank you so much..
OMG! I just love Alisa and her flowers!! My wedding day flowers were AMAZING! I literally knew nothing about flowers until I met with Alisa! She was so helpful at picking out the flowers that would match and what would be in season! I honestly wish I could have do my everyday flowers for my house!!

Alisa did an amazing job! My flowers were everything I’d dreamed they’d be! I met with Alisa once before the wedding (my now husband and I moved to Delaware right after we became engaged, so I had to plan our Texas wedding from out of state) on a trip home to Texas. During that visit, she figured out exactly the look and flowers I wanted. Alisa also worked with my wedding planner to make sure we stayed in budget. When I walked into my venue the day of the wedding, it looked exactly like my fairy tale wedding. The flowers were absolutely breathtaking! I had low, medium, and tall flower arrangements, a garland outside at the ceremony site, greenery on tables inside the reception venue, and a garland for the sweetheart table. All SO gorgeous and the exact shades of white, blush, and green I wanted! Thank you Alisa!!!

Alisa did all the flowers for our daughter’s wedding. They were all absolutely breathtaking! Many of the guests complimented them, their uniqueness and sheer beauty. We told Alisa the colors and a couple of flowers we liked and she took it from there. Her vision was our vision. We just handed her the baton and she ran with it. The outcome was perfect, simply perfect. I would highly recommend her as a competent and talented florist as well as someone who took our worries away and made my daughter’s wedding…perfect!
Loved working with Alisa on our wedding flowers! We got married last Friday and we loved how everything turned out! Alisa has a great style and was able to turn my ideas into fruition. She is very talented and so nice to work with. Highly recommend!
Alisa at Bride & Bloom was absolutely amazing. She is such a sweetheart and worked with us on our budget while still making sure we didn’t settle on the things we really wanted, and everything turned out perfect. I wish I could have kept my bouquet forever. I would absolutely recommend to any bride!
