The first was photography (I scored a sweet deal)
The second was flowers.
I absolutely LOVE peonies. They are my favorite flower, and by every bone in my body I was going to have peonies at my wedding. For my April 30, 2012 wedding, peonies were out of season and thus cost me a pretty penny to have the bouquet of my dreams. In my opinion, they were worth every penny.
Floral Inspiration: The first is the peonie bouquet I wanted and fell in love with, the second is the idea for my sisters Bridesmaid bouquet --- simple white, and miscellaneous.
I brought these pictures and my ideas to a florist in town. I called around, and settled on Bella Roma Florist in Downtown Chilliwack. She did a wonderful job on my flowers! I absolutely love them. I kinda just gave her these pictures and let her do her magic. On my wedding day our flowers were delivered.
My Bridal Bouquet
The BridesMaid Bouquet
A mix of everything white, no peonies.
A Toss Bouquet.
I wasn't going to toss my peonies. I needed them for pictures afterwards.
This little guy was for me to toss.
And we can't forget the men...
One for my hubby, groomsmen, and one for my dad!
