Well, the weekend wedding is over and I’m still trying to recover! I didn’t write for a few days because literally I haven’t even had time to breathe normally. The wedding was gorgeous, the couple amazing, and of course I thought the flowers and decor were stunning….other people did too. Yeah…that’s a pat on my back…blatant.
I am slightly mortified with myself though because I didn’t take a SINGLE picture of anything. It wasn’t that I didn’t want to, but I honestly didn’t have time to even grab my camera and snap a few shots. This is not an exaggeration. Every spare second was used up, and since I knew that my amazing photographer friend, Kim Deloach, was shooting the wedding, I didn’t stress over it. My flowers and decorating efforts will be chronicled much more fabulously than I could ever even attempt to do. Once she has had a chance to edit the pics, I’ll beg her for a few to show you. She will make my floral efforts look like a real professional! 🙂
I love a good wedding….and this one was great. Our friend has been waiting for his “one” for longer than most of us, and when he finally found her, he slipped a ring on that finger and set a date fast! She is amazing and it has been such fun getting to know her the past few months as well! We look forward to years of fun all together!
But I have to be honest and say that I’m sure glad the wedding part is done now! It was a blast doing the flowers and decor, but I’m glad that it’s off my plate too! I have to tell you though, every second of hard work was completely worth it when the bride told me “You saw my vision and made it even better than I’d imagined.” Yeah….about the best compliment I could have received! I have to give a massive shout out here too to our friend KC who busted her tail coordinating the wedding and helping me set up. There is NO WAY I’d have finished styling it all had I been by myself! Didn’t hurt either that the venue was our friends’ amazing old farmhouse which is a stunner in itself. I’ll have to round up some pictures and post them soon to share with you…because while I’m sure I could come up with 1000 more words to describe it all….1 picture is worth all of that! I’ll see what I can find!
Oh…and the secret for this great illusionist this weekend was dirty hair! I arranged wildflowers all afternoon on Friday and had to bust it to get to the rehearsal dinner in time. My biggest fear the whole night was having some critter crawl out of my hair! There were SO MANY BUGS on those flowers when I was arranging them….I thought I was going to show up with itchy, bumpy, red arms from all the bites…and since I was so rushed I didn’t have time to wash my hair! I was SO sure something had made it all the way north and was hibernating til just the right moment. I hate bugs!
Then Saturday, I was rushing around all day and again…dirty hair at the end of it….no time for anything greater than an updo! They say dirty hair is easier to style great anyhow…so while it was a filthy head weekend for me…it was a great hair styling one!
