And since I've gotten SO many requests to see some of the professional photos of our bouquets I thought I'd let you get a little peak - don't they look amazing!! Probably one of my favorite details of the day =) HUGE thanks to my amazing photog Margaret Jacobsen who captured our day brilliantly.

Some girls love DIY when planning their wedding, and some would rather just let the pros handle everything. Being in the industry myself, I usually recommend to brides to have a healthy mix of both. Let the professionals handle the majors, and do some projects that really tie in your personalities that make your wedding you. Not, really sure what I was thinking when planning my own - given the above statement. Somehow I thought I was superwomen and could just do it ALL myself. I was very mistaken to say the least. The only way I managed to do it all was by the crazy loving support of family and friends. One of those friends happens to be Samantha Santana of Primary Petals. I went to her originally for some advice on what flowers were in season during my wedding month since I was clueless about flowers. I explained how I was making a ton of flowers out of book pages and what I was looking for flowers to supplement that, and how I was going to do that all myself. Bless this lady's soul when she came to me with an amazing idea! Samantha is gearing up to do some floral workshops and she came up with the idea of doing a sort of workshop at my house w/ all my girls to do our florals. We still had a total DIY look, because they were all basically done by us, but we had a professional instructor showing us the ropes. I had such a fun time and seriously learned a lot. Samantha, you saved us! I cannot thank you enough for the awesome experience!!! With all that said, my Grandpa took some photos of the whole "workshop" in action that I thought I would share a couple =)
