Marriage is what brings us together today

We are so excited to have received professional photos of my daughter's wedding May 23rd. 
Thank you Lana Dunn at Beautifully Dunn Photography. She was excellent! 
I was the florist as well as the event planner and mom. So I was a proud and tired momma. 

 The happy couple!

 Handsome couple at historic tree

 The bride grew up exposed to a variety of flowers and selected this white and green color scheme: garden roses, ranunculus, lisianthus, veronica, astilbe, silver brunia berries, maidenhair fern, and monkey tail fern shoots

The groom's boutonniere consisted of a ranunculus, scabiosa bud, 
monkey tail and seeded eucalyptus.

 The lovely Copper Creek Event Center in Springville was the setting for the reception.

We used curly willow to fill in some of the height of the soaring ceiling.

Urn arrangements flanking the fireplace included hydrangea, green trick dianthus, 
carnations, tulips, Queen Anne's lace, snapdragons, stock, curly willow and hanging amaranthus.

Da pappa built these pillars so that the curly willow could be transported separately. 
(Figuring out how to transport floral decorations without damaging them is always tricky.)
My dad and I added the dendrobium orchids, hydrangea, spirea, stock, 
larkspur, and hanging amaranthus on site.

The groom's mother did a lovely job making the cake. 
The bride's father built the cake stand. 
The bride's mother added the flowers.
The small bouquet is for tossing.


Cake and an ice cream sundae bar gave us energy for dancing.

 The bride wanted to have a daddy-daughter dance, but she didn't have time to create it. 
Thanks to her selfless sister who saved the day by creating adorable choreography, 
cutting and blending the songs, plus tutoring the dancers.
Sadly, I had a technology-challenged moment when I tried to record it. 
Half-way through the dance, I realized the timer was still at 0:00 and only recorded the ending. 
I hope to add the full video soon.

It was a great day!
