One Crazy Week, 2 Beautiful Weddings

The week before we moved was CRAZY! Between packing and cleaning out everything, finishing projects, and trying to get together with friends and family, I was also doing 2 weddings by myself! I had committed to doing them while my boss was in Hawaii before I found out we were going to be moving that same weekend. (This is why I didn't leave until Saturday) But they both turned out AMAZING and I'm so glad I did it.
The first wedding on Thursday was very traditional and all roses, but the roses I used were beyond beautiful and made the whole thing so great. They were huge orange ones that opened up to the size of your palm. You would have thought they were home grown garden roses. I also mixed them with a little different rose that had a darker orange tip. I always recommend mixing more than one shade of rose to add dimension. I'm so sad I didn't get a picture of it! My mind was going so crazy making sure I had everything done that I didn't even think about it. Darn.
But I did get a few pictures of the wedding I did on Friday and I am so glad because it was even better! The bride wanted a sort of modern asain vibe so we used lots of horsetail, orchids, and dark callas. I really had to stop myself from just taking her bouquet home with me. The two arrangements for the outdoor ceremony were just as amazing.
Although everything turned out great and there weren't any major tragedies, I was more than glad when the week was over!
