Eric and Carolyn are a husband and wife design team who specialize in weddings and special events. They are a design studio not a flower shop. As a design studio they focus all of their time on their carefully selected customers and give each of them the attention they need when planning their special day. They hope that from the first time you contact them via email or phone call that you will feel very special. Their goal is to make sure that every client enjoys the design process they did when they planned their own wedding just 33 years ago.
Carolyn focuses on sourcing all the beautiful containers and fresh flowers that they use in their designs; allowing their clients to sit back and not worry about any details going untouched.
Eric’s creative background comes from his very talented parents. Thirty four years ago they opened the doors of Bee’s Flower Shop. They took the first letter of each of their names Bernice Elliott and Eric and came up with the name Bee’s. The logo has changed but the name has stayed the same always reminding them where they started. Eric is a graduate of the Art Institute of Houston. With his degree in design and his family of many talents he has a sharp eye for design, color, balance and harmony all the elements necessary for creating a beautiful event.
Their clients look for the convenience of getting everything from one designer. If you need floor plans, lighting (candle light, up light or chandeliers) pipe and drape, ceiling drape, floral walls, a concrete wall accented with paper flowers or a hand painted wall behind your cake they are the design team you are looking for. They can do many design styles organic, modern, industrial, vintage or a combination of two styles. Some of their clients know exactly what they want and others have no idea. Eric will work with you and help you develop your aesthetic and turn an ordinary place into extraordinary place.
As Bee’s lead designer, Eric is more excited about the design process than ever before. His brides today challenge him to be more creative and an out of the box thinker. He works with his clients to create something that is truly a reflection of the couple he is working with. Eric’s ultimate goal is for guest to be wowed by the end product and that guest realize from the minute they walk in that all the details are a reflection of the couple just with a designers touch.
