Weddings and Sunsets

After 34 centerpieces, 16 bouqets, 8 boutineers, 7 strands of strung flowers and 5 gallons of rose petals, we finished the wedding flowers. They all turned out beautiful!!

This box of arrangements were four ball type arrangements on a stick that would sit on top of four seperate bamboo poles going down the aisle.

These arrangements were for the second wedding that I think was at Mirada's.

And these were for the wedding that Jeri and Steve were planning at Playa Sol. Steve being the officiant!!
These last ones went with the first ones, but are the table arrangements. I believe that wedding was at Zama's.

After we ate some lunch Brian and I enjoyed a little sun time on the roof. After all this flower arranging, I thought about my first years of college. I attended The University of Minnesota in Waseca for a degree in Horticulture. Then I worked at Bachman's Floral and Design. So many nights of arranging for Valentine's Day, Mother's Day, etc. Who would think I would end up being the owner and driver of a trucking company?!

Off to Playa Sol to watch one of the weddings and the sunset!

these are beautiful,..I've always thought I'd enjoy flower arranging, but I don't think I'm that good at it!

Beautiful pics and flowers! I especially love the Gerbera daisies in the Conch Shells. May have to 'borrow' that idea!

Brenda, the flowers are gorgeous! A friend of mine and I did wedding flowers as a side gig for a few years. Lots of work, but also lots of fun!
