Whirlwind Weekend

Wow, how did it get to be Monday already??

One of my good friends (actually both the bride and groom) got married on Saturday, this is wedding #2 of the season!!

Since I was in charge of the flowers, Thursday was spent doing prep work with one of my awesome co-workers (also a florist-comes in super handy!!).  Friday was spent getting the bouquets, boutonnieres and corsages ready!!

This is reason I had NO blog posts, sorry guys, but wedding flowers take priority!!
This was the bride's bouquet, white satin ribbon wrapped as the first layer, then hot pink organza ribbon corseted around the white satin.  Everything was secured with white pearl head pins.
These were the wrist corsages for the mom's, hot pink spray roses, orange wax flower, pittosporum, hypericum berries and a little bear grass in the back.
These are the boutonnieres for the groom, groomsmen and dad's, mini mango calla lilly with hypericum berries, salal leaf and bear grass in loops. 
These were the bouquets for the bridesmaids, orange and pink roses, orange wax flower, pittosporum and salal leaves, orange dahlia's, pink and orange gerber daises and hypericum berries.
Here are all the bouquets DONE!!  The bride's is in the middle, she LOVES white daisies so they were worked into her bouquet as well as the swags that went on the arbor they were married under.
Here I am putting up the swags, they were REALLY tied on there with floral wire, Greg and I shook the arbor to make sure they weren't going anywhere.  Haha pay no attention to my shinyness, this was before I showered for the wedding, as you bloggers know, we keep it real, no fake photos here!
This is the reception room all ready for the ceremony!

All in all it was a beautiful day for a wedding and we're happy our friends are married!!
Oh yeah, and what would a wedding be without a little ELVIS??
Happy Monday everyone!!
