Wedding Flowers

Cody's niece got married this weekend so on Friday, we set off on a 4 hour. 200 mile drive.  We got there just in time for the rehearsal dinner and way too many drinks.  Saturday morning while Cody got to hang out with the boys, I was hard at work putting all the wedding flowers together!
The flowers came from Sam's club and we had a lot of work to do.  We made 8 boutineers for the guys.  They were simple with 1 rose, some babies breath, 1 fern, wrapped in twine with a little twine bow to finish it off. 
The ladies corsages had a little more babies breath and ferns with an aqua bow to finish them off.   
The bridesmaids bouquets were 3 coral roses surrounded by babies breath and ferns.  The handles were wrapped in burlap. 
The bride's bouquet had white and peach roses surrounded by babies breath.  The stems were wrapped in lace and had pearl pins all the way down for a finishing touch. 
It was a beautiful wedding and we really enjoyed our weekend.  Cody got a little emotional when he saw his niece, who he is so close to, walk down the aisle.  The father/daughter dance had me and him both emotional because her father died when she was young and her stepdad has really stepped up.  Cody said he could tell her dad was there on her special day.
The backdrop to the ceremony was a big, beautiful desert mountain.  What a beautiful wedding that we got to be a part of.  Congratulations Kris & Drew!
