Both Natalie and AJ asked for something kind of different, a little outside the box, and I knew just where to go with it. Fiddleheads, succulents, pitcher plants, lisianthus and orchids. Simple, unique, quirky and so damn stylish. Its a well known fact that purple is not one of my favorite colors...in fact I think I've even told a friend that I think it "should die" but MAN.....I sure love a purple Vanda Orchid. Something about the slight checker board pattern kills me, even makes my heart beat a little faster. Off I go to swoon over the last stem left....OoOoOOO AHahhhhHHhhHhhh....
I just thought I would take a moment and introduce you to Ms. Treadwell. I fancy young lady with silly voices who happily cuts flower stems, makes a MEAN corsage and best of all, makes me laugh. Welcome her to wackyville. I think she'll fit in just fine.
Wet grass, omelet bars, fresh salmon, tables tucked into gardens, honeysuckle in the air, me fluttering through the garden, my hair blowing behind me, cartoon birds landing on my shoulder....ohhhh I love a morning wedding! Wait...I take that back. REWIND.....I love the idea of a morning wedding, my body however really hates the idea of waking up early on a Sunday. It yelled at me, told me to get back in bed and pull the covers over my head. My cat however told me it was time to feed her giant fat face and wouldn't leave me alone the second she saw me peaking out from under the covers. I'll thank her now or else I would have easily fallen back to sleep. Luckily it was a gorgeous day and once I was up, I was allll about playing in the sunshine.
Katrina and Ori had some really lovely personal touches. A vintage dress passed down by her family, a cake made by her mother and old Isreali books on each table to be used as guest books. I love the idea of writing a message to the bride and groom amidst stories. I only with I knew what the books were. (NOTE: time to learn Hebrew)
