My Mom's Favorite Moment

As you may recall, a family friend graciously agreed to put together all the flowers for my wedding. I printed off pictures of bouquets I liked, and asked her to work her magic.

When I got home from getting my hair done, the flowers had already arrived. I walked into my room and picked up my bouquet...

I held it in my hands, looked in the mirror, and started to cry.

"It's PERFECT", I told my Mom. And it was.

At that moment, I felt like a bride. I couldn't imagine holding a more beautiful bouquet.
So as I cried, my mom held me. And this moment is her favorite of the day.

Our family friend had perfectly put togther everything I had asked for, and it ended up being much more beautiful than any of the pictures I had given her. My bouquet contained hydrangeas, lisanthius, roses, and of course, gerber daisies.

Absolutely beautiful. And absolutely a moment I will never forget.
When did you have that "I feel like a bride" moment?


  1. when we had our FIRST LOOK! thats when i was like....OMG!!! GREAT PICS!

  3. That's a really pretty bouquet. I think I had my bride moment right after my sister got my corset all cinched up and I turned to the mirror - priceless.
