Here are some more photos of the wedding we went to last weekend. I was pretty involved in the preparations (from doing all the flowers to helping the bride pick out a dress) and Jeff created the ingenious cardboard tube vases that held the flowering branches at the outdoor “altar” and did 101 other tasks behind the scenes. Here’s what we helped create:
The groom fabricated the fantastic cupcake stand out of wood disks and a brass frame. The cupcakes were from Lynne’s Lovecakes in Chilliwack and they were delicious. The icing was the best icing I’ve ever had – light, smooth, not grainy and not sweet. They tasted as good as they looked.
The bouquet wilted during the heat of the wedding but perked up once it got back into water. It survived our day-long trip to Ikea and got home, 2 days later, looking fairly fresh.
I don’t have pictures but we also did two huge arrangements of Solomon’s Seal, pink snapdragons, green bells of ireland and a mass of other greens for the front of the “altar”. It was great fun… and I’m happy it’s over!
