The flowers were elegant yet simple, elaborate yet not overdone in any way imaginable, revealing once again the simple abundance of what mother nature is capable of in the way of wedding bouquets and arrangements, with a little help from a tasteful and talented florist. The traditional bridal flower used especially during Victorian times, blue hydrangeas, be-decked each guests' table offering devotion, understanding and friendship. What lovely sentiments to tie the wedding guests together with the bride and groom as well as their loving parents.
The entire affair was all about a celebration of family, togetherness and, for me, the beautiful flowers that adorned the entire happy occasion. From the moment, my sister started pinning boutonnieres onto the groomsmens' lapels to after the reception when my cousin, Bonnie, and I were admiring the hydrangeas and even bringing a few home for momentos, it was a grand affair. Congratulations to Jennifer and her new husband Carl.
