Bridal Show

I know I promised pictures of the Wedding event last weekend, but I didn't get to them before. But I am now! With out further adue.....

Me and my mom!
This the candy bouquet. My mom's favorite
Table centerpiece - we were going in a totally different direction with colors
 until we found these chocolate orchids. Amazing!
Our table display
My girls got to have a hand in the creating. 
They always want to help during a wedding, but it's a little too crazy to let them. 
This was low pressure and we were able to teach them a thing or 2. 
This one was made by Emma (6)
This one was made by Rebecca (9) 
In no time we'll be able to sit back and let them do it all ;)
This is a before picture. I pulled all these flowers together....
And created this! Spring at it's finest!

Another beautiful bouquet.
We drove for 1.5 hrs to get there, so we left @ 6:30am. 
This masterpiece had to be finished at the site. A little too big for the car!
 My mom is so very talented!
These are the bouquets I made. I used to hate this.
 I am so grateful to love this artwork, now.
 I learned at the foot of my mother.
 I hope that my children are learning something at the foot of me.
This was the favorite of the show. Every bride loved this one! 
It's funny how the colors change from year to year. 
I have so many more pictures. Which is your favorite? I'd love to know. It was so much fun. A few friends from the area showed up and it was so fun to see them. I love being a part of God's creations. Being able to add to the beauty of the world around us. I love the time I get to spend with my mom when we do a wedding. We are truly best friends, and I am so grateful for her.

Soooo pretty. I think it is awesome that you get to pass all that talent down to your girls too.

And about the pics- I can't handle huge groups like that! I would love to but I did a huge family reunion last summer and it is WAY too hard. Those pictures never turn out much better than a snapshot because everyone's head is so tiny in such a big group. How fun that you guys are having a big family reunion!
