Professional Flower Girl

I promised you more wedding pictures, and by golly -- I'm bound and determined to keep at least ONE of the promises I've made around here lately!!!  (My Photoshop Elements Adventure post is coming soon - I know I said it would be last week ... ugh!)
ANYway....
This past weekend, Lucy got to be a flower girl for the second time this month!
She is loving all this center-of-attention stuff, let me tell you! :)~

The wedding took place at a little white church, up in the hills near our home.....

My cousin, Monika - the beautiful bride. :-)




 

Lucy and Mama :-)
And the reception took place in MY BACKYARD!  
FYI, throwing a party THAT big at one's house is a pretty serious endeavor!
And a lot of work.  


I failed to take pictures of most of the cute details that were incorporated, but here are a few ....
LOTS of chalkboards with cute script.

Candy Bar
Scott cut up a log to make lots of flower "stands" - very cute!
Orchids in water-filled hurricanes ...
and old milk bottles, tied with raffia, complete with striped paper straws for the guests beverages.

White lights galore ... and hops!
Beautiful. :-)
Lucy had a BLAST on the dance floor ALL. NIGHT.
I don't think she got off that dance floor once for about 3 hours straight!  She is a dancin' machine!
Dancing with Supernanny, Joy. :-)

And bridesmaid, Khoben.

And she LOVED  our pretty pink princess dresses.  So much FLUFF to play with! :-)
It was another beautiful wedding night, and although it was a lot of work .... it was worth it! :-)
(I just wish my yard looked that beautiful year-round!)

  2. First, Lucy is a beautiful flower girl. You looked good, too, by the way. I can't imagine all the work that went into having the reception in your backyard. My heart started racing when I read that. My granddaughter will be a flower girl in 2 weeks, and I'm having the bridal brunch here that morning. I'm so nervous about it. I need to clean, clean, clean.
    Thanks for sharing those pictures. I just love weddings.

  4. Gorgeous... Everything! The bride's dress looks amazing.

    I agree with Sara's comment... where did you get the milk bottles? I have only been able to find, for a reasonable price, bottles that have writings on them. I want smooth ones like you got.
