Mike's and Mandy's Wedding

My niece Mandy loves succulent!  For the past couple of years,
she has reminded me that when she got married, she wanted
her bouquet to be filled with succulent! 
These pictures don't show how beautiful her bouquet turned out.
Hopefully, I can get a picture from her 
professional photographer and show it off better!
Congratulations, Mike and Mandy!  You guys make a beautiful couple!

Thomas' and Louise's Wedding


 Lots of pink for this wedding.  Add it with shiny rhinestones
and you have the perfect flowers for a classic bride.
It was fun to do these flowers for TJ and Louise.
I wish them the best as they begin their journey.

Joe's and Katelin's Wedding


 Katelin was such an easy going bride. I think it took about fifteen minutes to
decide what she wanted, and I thought her flowers turned out so pretty.
Navy and lavender are two of my favorite colors, and I think they go together very well.
I wish she and Joe a lifetime of love and laughter!

Jed's and Candalynne's Wedding

Okay, with this being my own daughter's wedding, I will probably keep adding photos! 
I wondered if I would be too stressed to do flowers with everything else 
the mother of the bride needs to worry about on her daughter's wedding day,
 but we made it thanks to the help of my family and friends!  
Luckily, it was all pretty simple to do with the exception of the flower girls floral crowns,
but they were silk so I was able to do them ahead of time. Whew!
(And they all looked darling with them on their heads).
Glad to have you part of the family, Jed.  Love you both more than all the stars!

Elliott's and Madison's Wedding

 I must admit...I was really nervous about how these flowers would
look for the bride's and groom's wedding day.
I did them two days before the actual event, and with the
flowers being white, I fretted about whether or not they would brown.
I honestly have no idea if they did or not, but I sure thought
they were pretty when I did them.  I love white and blue!
I hope the couple was pleased and that they worked out for their special day!

Spencer's and Haley's Wedding

Sometimes it's hard to say no!
My daughter-in-law's best friend was getting married the same week
I was leaving for young women camp, so these flowers were done two days in advance!
I really wanted to do them for Haley, though.
I hoped and prayed they would stay fresh for the big day.
I thought they turned out very pretty.
I do need to figure out floral magnets. I put them on the corsages,
and when I tried them, they worked, but they failed on the wedding day.
And, I wish I would have maybe only used one rose for the corsages rather than three.
These roses are gorgeous, but they were HUGE!!!
Every now and again, I wish I could go back in time and have a do over.
I live and learn and hope I can remember for the next time! 
Overall, I think these flowers were beautiful. 
Coral and peach are always beautiful in my opinion.
Congratulations to Haley and Spencer!
So happy for you!

Ethan's and Kirsti's Wedding

 It was fun to walk out of the Ogden Utah Temple and see these two lovebirds across the way.
This was only the second wedding I did using silk or what they now call permanent flowers,
and I was a little intimidated by it, but I thought the colors looked stunning against
Kirsti's ivory dress.  It actually ended up being really fun to do these flowers.
I worked on the corsages at the oral surgeon's office while my daughter was getting her 
wisdom teeth out!  That's the great thing about silk flowers...
you can work on them just about anywhere!
This couple was so cute and you can tell they are so happy, 
and I am happy for them!
