I'm just going to start out by saying if you are a bride reading this, please know that no matter how much you plan, some things will probably go wrong. And that's okay! Your day will still be amazing! Take a deep breath and plan away, but expect the unexpected.
On October 21, 2017, I married the father of my child and the love of my life. We had an outdoor ceremony with an indoor reception at a beautiful rustic barn venue. We had BBQ, cupcakes, and sweet tea. There was an abundance of things that didn't go as planned, (receiving the wrong colored roses, family not walking down during the processional, my sweet two-year-old daughter with autism not walking me down the aisle, the many guests who RSVP'd and didn't show, the complete lack of alcohol...) but I was in a complete state of bliss the entire day because I was with the ones I loved. I had my new husband, my sweet daughter, family from all sides who traveled long distances to be there with us, friends we hadn't seen in years. It was complete bliss and although I can't say I don't wish things had gone the way I planned, I am still over the moon about my perfect day. One of my favorite details is the flowers! I have zero experience with arranging flowers and I couldn't be happier with how they turned out. And I was surprised at how easy it was! I knew I wanted a big cascading bouquet with big roses and lots of greenery and that's exactly what I got!
