tying the knot...

       A wedding is such a joyful event. Beauty- excitement- commitment- enduring love- and pure bliss are some words I would use to describe this big day.  My cousin was recently wed on a beautiful saturday afternoon.  Looking back upon how much detail went into making this day perfect for her was at times a hassle. In the end, everything paid off.  She was a radiant bride walking down the aisle, and I was honored to stand up for her as a bridesmaid.  As a gift for her, the bridesmaids/ maid of honor, and flower girl, I created something very special that they could keep as a rememberance.  I designed three different bouquets.
12 white paper roses for the bride
completely made by hand.

3 funky lavender roses
for bridesmaids/ maid of honor

5 roses with 10 calla lilies
for the flower girl

The girls loved them! Success! My desire was to design something they could keep, rather than throw away.  I completed my mission. :)

  13. Love these..I was telling my daughter that I'd seen a blog where the girl made her wedding flowers out of paper but couldn't remember which one..lucky for me I am a follower of your Mom's blog and found you again!!! I am your newest follower!!! Yay!

  14. WOW! They look beautiful in those photos, but I have to say they are even more special in person. :) They definitely will last longer than our real boquets. Mine is in a short glass vase on our dining room table with wedding tapers next to it in the glass flowers vases. I'm glad you were one of my bridesmaids, I wouldn't have done it without you! Luv ya!
