Wedding Flowers

Today's post is all about our wedding flowers!

I loved them! I could have had a bit more red thrown in, but all the autumn colors were beautiful! I had orchids and roses for special reasons. The orchids because they are my favorite flower and Phil's grandmother's. Sunset roses because they are my favorite rose and were my grandmother's favorite too. Phil's other grandma and my other grandma both have rose in their names: Rosita & Mary Rose. So there ya go!

First, we'll start off with my bouquet...

On my bouquet, I had my mom's lace from her veil and my grandmother's bracelet I used to play with all the time when I was little...

The groomsmen's boutonniere...

The bridesmaid's bouquets...

Me with my bouquet and Phil with Hulk!

The flowers over the arch where we got married (look at that blue sky!)...
My bouquet doubled as the centerpiece for our sweetheart table. I think Hulk liked it too...

What are your favorite flowers?

Do any certain flowers hold any significance to you?

Wedding Bling

Here are some more beautiful pictures from our wedding! Today we will concentrate on the accessories for the special day!

This is my veil being pinned on...
And here are the pins I wore in my hair...

And this is one of my favorite perfumes that my uncle has given me. It is sitting upon a hand mirror my mom gave me that was her mom's...

My jewelry...

And here are our ring shots! First, the Hulk had to steal the spotlight...

This is the handkerchief I gave my mom...

Hope you are enjoying these glimpses in our wedding!

Sad :(

One of my longtime friends from high school lost his house, everything he owns, and his doggy in a fire last night. He was very fortunate that he got out of the house and that his dad wasn't home at the time. I saw him today and my heart just ached for him. I gave him a big hug and hoped that could help just a little. My stomach has just been in knots all day thinking about it. My thoughts are with him and I hope he recovers from this shock soon.

Wedding Green

To repeat last Saturday's post, I will continue posting some more pictures from our wedding!

I was really excited about my green shoes! It took me forever to find just the right ones, I ended up have to get a pair of dyeable ones cause it is impossible to find this shade of green shoes for an affordable price! I got an idea from somewhere about having my bridesmaids sign the bottom of my shoes with blue sharpie for my "something blue". It turned out to be something really special that I will always treasure!
And here are mine and Phil's shoes together.
Would you pick green for your wedding shoes?
Maybe some other color?
What did/are you going to do for your "something blue"?

Wedding White

I thought I might shead some light on this dreary weekend (at least it is here anyway) with some pictures of our wedding! This post is dedicated to my dress and me, the bride!

I love my dress! It had lace all over the bottom of it, buttons down the back, with a sweetheart neckline, and just the perfect amount of sparkle! I'll let you look for yourselves...

And I have a dilemma... I don't know which I like the best of me and dad walking down the aisle! Color or B&W??? The colors are all so beautiful but you can see the awesome shadows so perfectly in black and white!

Which do you like best?
