Third times the charm my friends!
Bryan and I had a simple courthouse wedding at City Hall in December, witnessed by my sister Coralea. There was something so powerful about hearing the vows in English and repeating them back...that of course I started crying! All happy tears.
But what is a wedding with a bouquet?! I whipped up this bouquet of white roses, baby's breath, eucalyptus and wheat, which I found at my local Trader Joes. Tied together with a ruffled bow, it was simple yet perfect.
The creation of this wedding bouquet was simple enough. I started with trimmed roses in the center, and then added the outer layer of baby's breath and eucalyptus. As I was creating the bouquet, I would take a look in my mirror to get a better sense of how it looked. As a "garnish", I added a few sprigs of wheat.
I have always loved symbols & signs, so it was important that each flower had a specific meaning. Here's what each of the flowers in my wedding bouquet represented:
white roses: loyalty and youthfulness
baby's breath: everlasting love
eucalyptus: strength, protection, abundance
wheat: abundance and fertility
