We brought a bride to tears! In a good way....

This is the reaction that we strive for!  Not to make a bride cry, but when she is so moved, that she may shed a tear of joy, it is truly heartwarming.  This is my nephew Andy and his new wife Julie.  We went to Hawaii earlier this month to celebrate with them, but also, of coarse, do their wedding flowers :)  Thank you guys so much for getting us over there to do just that! 
These words from the photographer Sarah Rhoads, "My favorite moment of their big day was when Julie walked into the room where the ceremony would be held, saw it for the first time and her eyes welled up with big tears, as she hugged Andy she told him she couldn't believe how much everyone did... her gratitude was so sincere. You see, Julie & Andy's wedding was supposed to be outdoors but it rained quite a bit that morning so they made the executive decision to move everything inside so Jules had no idea what it would look like. Andy & his family put together a gorgeous surprise for these two indoors and it ended up playing out perfectly."
I worked along side with my sister-in-law Annie who has a floral and coordination business of her own.  I had so much fun collaborating with her on this special wedding.  Julie is also in the wedding industry, she is quite a talented photographer.  We worked on this wedding together. Julie had a huge part also in the design of her wedding and did many DIY projects that made this wedding truly special and unique.

This beautiful wedding was featured on Style Me Pretty and you can see more beautiful photos on Sarah Rhoads Photography's Blog.

This is one of my all time favorite weddings. I love everything about it!!! The colors, the couple, the ridiculously over-the-top amount of cuteness that went into the decor, and OF COURSE, the FLOWERS! Perfection!
