Stop and Smell the Roses

Next up...flowers!

I went into my florist appointments with absolutely no ideas whatsoever. I just wanted pink :) After looking at a billion choices and books I finally decided on pink roses with apple berries for some greenery. I absolutely loved every little bit of them. My very favorite part was that you could see the stems. I just think that adds such a real feeling to the bouquet.








We did pink roses for the boutineers for the guys as well. What great sports wearing pink :)




My bridesmaids carried the exact same bouquet as I did except smaller.



Because our wedding was outdoors at a country club, we were unable to do the traditional flower girl rose petal deal because of fear of the wind carrying the flowers onto the golf course. Instead, my flower girl handed out single roses to women while she was walking down the aisle. It turned out just perfectly!






Our florist also was able to pop a little color into our unity candle podium before she left. It made such a difference!



Overall, these colors and flowers were the exact perfect choice for us! Loved them!

I looove your flowers!! Love, love, love!! I didn't take my wedding too seriously--which is good and bad--I wasn't a bridezilla (good!), but I never really voiced exactly what I wanted (I didn't really know), so, my stepmom did--and it really was her wedding (bad!).
