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
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!
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 my flowers at my wedding and all floral decoration. Absolutely stunning and made my day even more perfect.

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!
