This Saturday's Wedding

I so enjoyed doing the flowers for this Saturday's wedding...I love the delicate ultra feminine look...here is a pic of the filled silver tussie mussies the mothers carried....sweet...

The bridal bouquet was a teardrop of blue hydrangeas and white roses...um....um....I am so ready for the strapless look to exit the wedding scene...it's been ten years!!!...arghhhhhhh....something different please designers....designers?.....designers?....are you listening to me?!...anyway the bride was beautiful....
...the bridesmaids carried a swanky arm bouquet of callas and peacock feathers wrapped in gold ribbon...it reminds me of the '20's for some reason.....really like them....especially since it is a departure from the round pave' bridesmaid bouquet look....
This is the bride's son....he was an adorable stinker....I overheard this conversation....
...between him and this little girl....boy, "...I hate all this..",  little girl.." you bettah not say dat...you remembah what ya mamah said huh?...Let's go have a convahsation?!"  ...hmmm?  I guess his mammah had been having some convincing conversations about proper wedding behavior!   Oh, too cute....I adore, adore, adore, children in weddings......
...making sure the musician has his equipment set up and in working order before the wedding begins...
Simple delicate cake topper....I love this location for weddings...It's a shabby chic plantation home and an old church...The weddings take place in the house or the grounds and the reception in the church...huh?...but I love it!
...the giant old palms and cypress trees are breath taking...Looks like the groom is saying..."c'mon guys line up!"
...this is the front of the home.  These old plantation homes were designed to be seen from the Mississippi river when they were built long ago.  Now the levee blocks the view of the river, and the back of the house faces to highway.  If you climb to the top of the levee you can imagine how beautiful the view of the plantation homes must have been from the deck of a steamboat.

This particular home "Woodland Plantation" has the particular fame of being the home featured on the Southern Comfort bottle...
...there's also a beautiful swampy area complete with gators and snakes...ha ha...no really...there are gators and snakes....did I mention this place is kid friendly?...
...the ceremony area presided over by a great old Louisiana bald cypress...
...and a simple bouquet of blue hydrangeas to adorn the church....

Kristi - the wedding was beautiful. This was (to me) one of the prettiest weddings (so sweet and simple) that I have seen in a while.
