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.
In the Spring of 2019 Bride and Bloom took a leap of faith and rekindled the flame with Alisa’s first love of production agriculture by starting a flower farm. They look forward to spreading the beauty of locally grown blooms throughout their community and incorporating the harvest into wedding and event design.
When not amid flowers, you can find Alisa with her husband and two children traveling in their beloved Airstream. Gardening and daydreaming about places to go and see are among her favorite things.
We are a woman owned and operated flower farm in Montgomery, Texas. We use sustainable farming practices to grow the same heirloom flower varieties our grandmothers grew and loved! We look forward to sharing the joy and nostalgia of our flowers by incorporating them into our daily designs and offering our wrapped farm bouquets at the Montgomery Farmer's Market and in our shop cooler during the growing season. Follow us on Facebook or Instagram to stay in the know!
What is a punch card? A punch card is like a gift card. It is good for either two or ten bouquets. The punch cards are fastened to a 5"x7" card and packaged in a kraft paper envelope. Each time a bouquet is received, the card is punched. Directions on use are printed on the backside of the card.
These pre-paid bouquet cards offer convenience when getting your flowers at the Farmer's Market or in-store.
When do flower punch card subscriptions start? While mother nature has a mind of her own, our season usually runs from early April through late October. Farm Bouquets will be available each week during the growing season at the Montgomery Farmer's Market each Saturday from 9am - 1pm (pending weather, insect pressure, etc.).
Can I give a punch card as a gift? Of course--it's highly recommended! These are available at the shop and at market.
What do I need on hand once I get my fresh farm flower bouquet? Our farm bouquets are wrapped in our signature kraft paper sleeve and do not come with a vase. However, if you forget your vase at home, we usually have recycled vases available. Once you get your bouquet home, cut at least 2 inches off of the stems, add water and the included flower food.
How long will my fresh flowers last? While some of your flowers may last longer, the average vase life is 5-7 days. To get the most life out of your flowers, make sure there's plenty of water in the vase at all times--the flowers will be thirsty!
Can we pick our own flowers at your farm? The only time we welcome guests to our farm is for workshops and private You-Pick sessions. You-Picks are limited to sunflowers and the end of the growing season for other varieties.
