My OWN wedding flowers!

Tuesday, July 29, 2008

So... this is a really long post. And totally self indulgent, but I don't really care! It's just for fun, this blogging thing, and it is MY blog, so I guess I can post what I want right? :)

The hubby and I just celebrated 5 years... FIVE whole years. I can't believe it's been that long. Maybe it's the second baby, or friends and family getting married, I don't know, I've just been feeling sentimental... and I thought I should share my own wedding flowers with the floral blogging universe. We had a very rustic, elegant (if canned beer isn't elegant, then what is?)... ranch wedding outside my hometown. Very dear to my heart, "the county" as we like to call it... The Clover Cliff Ranch in the Flint Hills, Chase County, Kansas.

Note my pretty hair. A little too highlighted for today's liking, but hey, it was five years ago okay?

My flower girls carried an herbal wreath in honor of my mom... rosemary is the herb that signifies remembrance, and I wanted to do something special for her. She was most definitely there with us in spirit that day... just look at this scenery, below:

So many awesome memories... but there is so much that you don't see in these photos. This is simply because I didn't have room, and I wanted to concentrate on the floral aspect of my wedding because this is indeed a floral design blog! Funny, I wouldn't have changed a thing... it was the best day of our lives before these girls came along!
