Bouquet Recipe

From Austyn Elizabeth Photography:
Sweet Petals Florists made the perfect bouquets to pull all the colors together. A beautiful mixture of Lamb’s Ear, blush Garden Roses, orange Ranunculus, large white Mums, and Succulents making each of the three bouquets a little different but a masterpiece by themselves.

Give Yourself Plenty of Time

From the Bride: One thing I would have done differently is added extra time to the wedding. We ended the reception at 10pm and the night just seemed to breeze by. Having a couple extra hours of dancing and socializing would have given us an opportunity to relax, unwind, and hold on to the moment a bit longer.

Surprise Groom Cake

From Austyn Elizabeth Photography: The sweetheart table had a beautiful wooden ampersand, creating the connection of the couple’s handmade “Mr.” & “Mrs.” signs that hung from their chairs. The dessert table offered a variety of delicious delicacies to all in attendance. The cake was an elegant three-tiered design decorated with large blush Garden Roses. The groom’s cake was a surprise for Duane who works in Law Enforcement, a replica of the couple and a patrol car.

Schedule for Day Of Mishaps

From the Bride: I honestly wish we had scheduled more time in the morning to get ready. You cannot predict the various mishaps that might occur and you don’t get a do over. I had a large wedding party, which made getting ready a bit of a struggle. Even though we had an early start time I wish we had begun sooner and hired an extra hair / make-up person to keep us on track.

Drink Less at your Rehearsal Dinner

My head was more cloudy than anticipated when I woke up the next day. After months of avoiding carbs and excess booze I had become, to my surprise, a bit of a lightweight. Fortunately, since it was the day of, I was able to stuff my face with bagels and not worry about fitting into my dress.

Don’t forget to Eat!

Our priest told us horror stories about brides passing out at the altar from low blood sugar. After experiencing the adrenaline rush that comes when walking down the aisle I don’t doubt him for a second. Thanks, again, to my bagel feast, I made it through the ceremony.
