Behind the Scenes

I know it's been awhile since I've done a real post post and I apologize so hopefully the upcoming week will make up for the past 3 weeks that I fell behind.  To start where I left off I will take you behind the scenes of the wedding I did at the end of April.  

The bride wanted all Red so I worked with a combination of Carnations, Roses, Anemones, Ranunculus and Tulips (not shown) 

I hope you all make note of how many pictures I took of Chris helping, he really came through on this one and was by my side the whole time.  Look at him here stripping roses, GREAT JOB honey!!!
Once all the flowers are prepared I start putting the bouquets together, I don't usually put the ribbon on until the very end in fear it will get dirty.  

And I always save the best flowers for the brides and then do that one last. 

Here's Chris again..... removing the stickers from all 60 bud vases with acetone, that was a very stinky job.  (notice the laptop by his side, that helped him get through the day) 

The timing was perfect, the bouquets were done, the vases cleaned and then walked in our friends, Ken and Ashely who I'm going to state for the record volunteered to help (Chris likes to think I force my friends to do this)  I would also like to state that in order to qualify to volunteer you must have a higher degree of education than myself (joking, that's just how it's worked out every time so far, lol)   Ken did a perfect job filling the vases with the same EXACT amount of water in each, I guess that's the mechanical engineer in him.

And my very serious Lawyer friend Ashley did a great job helping me fill the vases with a flower and some bear grass.  

 Vases all done :) thanks boys for taking it to the cooler, BRRRRR.

Chris did a great job making this special box with cups to transport the bouquets.  

Yes, that's 10 boutonnieres, 4 red hair flowers, and 1 white bridal hair flower. (corsages not shown)
