Show Us Your Life: Wedding Party and Flowers
It's time for more pictures for Kelly's Tour from my wonderful wedding, this week featuring the wedding party and flowers.
Here are the girls that were in my bridal party: Constance, Katie, Lauren, Brooke, Anne, Susan Hall, Brittany, Erin, and my two sisters who were the maids of honor, Alyssa and Andrea. Such sweet girls!
They wore two-piece long dresses in the color European Gray by Bill Levkoff. I was obsessed with the color!
Sweet Anna was my flower girl. I love her and her family! :o)
I also had honorary bridesmaids. Some couldn't be there for the wedding, so this isn't the whole group, but here are Taylor, Katie, Dana, Laura, Caroline, and LeAnn.
My sweet sisters-in-law, Jennifer and Ashley, were also honorary bridesmaids.
Here are Kurt's groomsmen: His dad Randy (best man), Josh, Adam, Jim, Keith, Kyle, Russ, his brothers Cory and Kelly, and my brother Will. What handsome men! :o)
Here's what the platform looked like. My florist did freelance work, which kept the cost down, and she was so wonderful about maximizing my budget. We rented the canopy, and she dressed it with flowers and tulle. We used all the greenery we could find in the church (free!), and made it look like a garden. There were also candelabras with flowers and candles. I wanted the bridal party surrounding us in the choir loft. Everything was just how I imagined it would look for a beautiful summer wedding (I had plans in my head for a wedding any time of year. I LOVE weddings!).
This is a good look at my bouquet: peonies, roses, and gorgeous greenery!
A better look at the canopy:
What a blessed wedding it was. Songs: "All I Ask of You" from Phantom of the Opera, in honor of my love of performing in musical theater and my semester in London, "The Prayer" and "I'll Walk with God" from the musical The Student Prince, sung at my parents' wedding in 1981. My two grandfathers and my dad performed the ceremony, and my dad wrote personal vows for us. It doesn't get more special than that! Precious memories!
