flowers in action

Since I can't take pictures right now I thought I would share photos that the professionals took! I love seeing the photos they take because often we leave before the guests arrive, and don't witness the event. I'm especially impressed with the pictures from this one because we actually set up everything in the pouring rain only to then move it indoors, but it turned out lovely in the end!

This is one of the first big pieces I ever did and I shared pictures before, but of course on the photographer's site there are better ones!

This was a small wedding that I did all the flowers for, but didn't help set it up, so seeing the pictures was especially exciting. I mean the bride is seriously gorgeous, and the crown and bouquet compliment her so well! But that's just my humble opinion.

These ladies were seriously sweet. I caught them giving the nicest talk to the caterers right before the ceremony thanking them for all they do, and as a person who works in the event business, I know that getting thanks like that is really rare and tells you how thoughtful a person is. I actually had my mama helping me with this one since she was in town, too! Pictures here.

I did not want to give away that flower crown so I had my coworker take a picture with his phone, however it looked like a mug shot so I cropped it. The other pictures feature an adorable bride wearing another one of my crowns! In other news my camera is now all-the-way broken which puts a damper in me posting anything on here. I really need to remedy this situation.

Ugh these dahlias were absolutely stunningly amazingly gorgeous, that color! And they were on the large side of what we usually get, I couldn't stop talking about them all week, especially because we also had burgundy/fuchsia astilbe, some other dahlias that were "black" and champagne roses, the combination was magical. I just kept wanting to smuggle them all home. (Also please don't google images of black dahlias unless you specify flowers because you will get extremely gruesome real crime photos)

These are all hand-me-downs from my grandfather, he went to school for architecture and while he didn't stick with it, apparently he kept many of his supplies and I find them incredibly lovely!

Just some flowers I brought home. Those purple roses always remind me of Lisa Frank.

Sixty Six

You should all watch Sixty Six, it is a British coming of age tale that is both heart-breaking and hilarious. It is so fantastic that I had to take screen shots because of all the wonderful styling/sets/costumes! Seriously, go watch it.
