Preparation for this wedding started as soon as the engagement ring came back in October. Fast forward 7 SHORT months and wedding week was upon us! Total chaos started on Thursday prior to the wedding on Saturday.
It played out a little somethin' like this...
MASSES of flowers arrived by the truckloads. (However, I will admit, this pic was taken after about half o the flowers were already unloaded.)
These beyond beautiful peonies were brought in just for the bride's bouquet.
Lots 'o flowers and candles were Sarah's top requests and the mastermind behind all the decor delivered!
Then we laid a tarp down and unwrapped, unboxed and sorted ALOT of flowers.
Then we unpacked and sorted a hodge podge of candle holders / flower arrangement holders.
Then we folded programs by the hundreds.
We finished the night with a last minute Bachelorette Dinner! Mallory, #2 from the left, was a bride herself two weeks after Sarah's wedding. And Christy, #3 from the left, just got engaged this past weekend! Love is in the air!!
Yes, white girl was W-H-I-T-E. Don't worry, I went and got myself spray-tanned later that night. Much later. Like 11pm later. But that's a different story. And at the risk of making myself mad remembering why it took so dang long.....I will skip that story.
That wraps up Wedding Week 2012 - Volume 1. Volume 2 includes the aftermath of the Bachelorette dinner, how we all became licensed floral artists, how to unload a horse trailer full of wedding supplies, the Rehearsal, and why you should never host a Rehearsal Dinner in a bank's conference room.
Now, THAT is a cliffhanger!
