Mother-daughter duo Donna Bennett and Trisha Dunn, respectively, provide flowers for about 70 to 80 weddings every year. They assemble elaborate displays onsite at large weddings and provide bouquets and arrangements for pickup for smaller events.
Since the coronavirus pandemic began, they have provided flowers for a lot more elopements, Dunn said, adding that many of the brides have booked them for a reception later next year as well. Home weddings are also taking place.
“A couple months ago we did a tropical wedding on Lake Austin at a home,” Bennett said. “We did this full, Hawaiian garland draping down a big cypress tree, that was unique.”
Everything in the store is one-of-a-kind, she said. All arrangements are handmade and never mass produced.
Visual Lyrics opened in 2000 and was a home studio for 12 years before the shop opened. Along with flowers, visitors to the Leander store can find Bennett’s sculptures, paintings and other creations. Additional local artists also have their work available onsite.
Though the concept started with Bennett and Dunn, another sister, brother, a niece and nephews are now also involved in some component of the business.
