Flowers played a very important part in my wedding. We wanted a garden wedding, but living in the Midwest you never know what the weather will be like on any given day! So, we got married at an indoor garden - the Mitchell Park Domes in Milwaukee, WI. The Floral Show Dome was so gorgeous this time of year. It smelled amazing! It was full of any spring flower you could possibly think of. There was a pond with the bridge, and a pretty gazebo made entirely of tree branches and twigs (which we got married under). I couldn't have asked for a more perfect setting.
My colors were very pale pinks and purples. I had 2 attendants and 3 flower fairies. Their bouquets and head wreathes were mostly roses with sprigs of heather (how fitting). The CD of pictures I have is different than my actual printed photos, so this image of us girls goofing around was the best group shot I could find for the moment. My bridemaid and maid of honor were my two good friends who I had known since kindergarden. My cousin was one of the flower fairies, and then two little sisters - daughters of our friends - were the other two.
My bouquet was roses, orchids and ivy. It is a frail little dried blob now, sitting on a shelf in my house. I hope to have it forever.
The chain is simple, and it mixes a gunmetal color with the copper for what I feel looks like a heirloom piece. The earrings are just simple petals from the same flowers topped off with the lampwork beads. I think this set would have been very fitting for my special day!
