sunshine on a cloudy day

Since I'm still trying to be in denial of the impending winter (and possible snow today) here is some sunshine to brighten things up!
These are actually wild sunflowers used to fit a more natural, outdoors, wildflower feeling wedding.  It cut costs immensely, but a few cautions:

  1. the selection of flowers is limited by the time of year
  2. they have quite sticky sap, so the stems need to be mostly or completely covered with ribbon or floral tape or something unless you want to be sticky
But it did make for some fun bouquets and arrangements.

a+d = love (and a fabulous wedding!)

This wedding was just so much fun!  The couple was adorable, and everything about their wedding was so unique, and so them.   I'm mostly just showing pictures of the flowers, but for more pictures from this amazing event check out their photographer's blog:  (it's in her august posts).  This wedding was also featured on the Wedding Chicks Blog about a month ago.  They really paid attention to and had fun with details on this wedding - their own "logo" with the a+d,  custom cufflinks (a and d keys from an old typewriter), matching converse for the groomsmen, peacock feathers, polaroid pictures, and an old Model A car for the getaway car!  Fabulous.

Anyway, here are a few pictures for your enjoyment.

i love fall

So I don't love the sudden cold weather, but I do LOVE the orange and red and gold-sprinkled mountains. And just to celebrate the splendor of fall colors, here are some of my favorite flowers for fall arrangements. 

Happy Fall!!
