lovingeveryminute ...is reclaiming my writing nest!
Both the Bride and Groom were welcomed into loving new families. We love him, they love her, and being the florist, I had a singular opportunity to help them express their love for their new mom-in-laws.
I made two huge flower arrangements for the reception and ring ceremony. Orange and maroon snapdragons, gold French tulips, parrot tulips, Dutch tulips, cremones that looked like sunflowers with yellow centers (awesome!), Viking Daisies, giant Freedom roses, and lots of smaller orange and gold spray roses.
Ooh. The pictures were so close. I had the disk IN my computer, but they came over today and took it with them before I got to download anything. Dangit. Oh well, I’ll get pictures and add a bunch to these entries.
Anyway, near the end of the reception, the bride and groom were supposed to go to the front and pick up the arrangements, then HE would give one of them to me, and SHE would give the other to his mom.
It didn’t happen.
Instead, someone got out the sparklers and all of a sudden we were all outside lining up for the Grand Exit. It was the only frustrating part of the evening, but I still gave the groom’s mom one of the arrangements, and she still thought it was great, so it all turned out all right in the end. :)
