I knew I wanted to get married in my parent's backyard after photographing so many weddings in venues myself over the years. I wanted my wedding to feel personal and special! Being a DIY gal, I couldn't ignore my want to do the flowers myself! I had the bouquets and corsages done by a florist, The Stalk Market. Everything else, including centerpieces, table runners, the backdrop, and the flower pole were made by the hands of all the wonderful women in my life. My dad transformed the backyard into a dream; arranging the flowers with my mother was our special activity. I was nervous about adding another task onto the weekend but now I could not have imagined it any other way! The flowers are the number one thing everyone mentioned about our day and I loved being able to claim them as my own creation! Thank you FiftyFlowers for making it as simple and easy as possible!
