I got so many great flowers! Rich colors and textures. Roses, calla lillies, daisies, cushions, snapdragons, dahlias, hypericum, spider mums, cabbage! And so many others. My kitchen looked like a flower shop. And the smell was divine. Sometimes I miss being in shop everyday.
Then it was time to get to work. All those flowers had to get cut out of their package and the folliage stripped off the stems. I do this to prevent rot and germs. Then into water with some floral food to re-hydrate for a few hours. And a much needed break for me before all crazy begins.
Doing flowers with a mobile 8 month around is interesting to say the least. Luckily a neighbor came over and helped hold him. Then he went to Grandma and Grandpa's!
Saturday was a HOT but very beautiful day. Shannon did an amazing job at the venue. It was beautiful and spectacular. I did several things on-site as Summer had gathered hydrangeas from friends and relatives. Since she had half the flowers I just took all mine with me.
It went well and it was a different experience doing the flowers at the venue. In most cases all the floral is done usually at my house or at a shop.
I love the colors of this. And the textures!

I'm just an amateur photographer. I can't wait to see the photo's that Betsy Mobbs took!
It was a huge wedding. Stunning and fabulous. Shannon may be my really good friend but she is an amazing planner! I can't wait to work with her again.
