Peacock feathers and colors of turquoise, green and blue were a big hit last summer and seem to still be hanging in there for 2014.   Green is a wonderful color option for the colors of these dresses and bring out the shimmer of green in the peacock feathers.  Some flowers that come in this lime green tone are roses, kermit mums, green spider mums, alstromeria lilies, cymbidium orchids, dendrobium orchids, hypericum berries and gladiola blooms.  Gladiola blooms are a great way to get a full flower and not add a huge amount to your budget.

Jake and Molly

Mollie had a beautiful bouquet of white peonies and patience garden roses in a hand tied bouquet

Jake and Mollie had a beautiful June wedding at Glen Oaks Country Club.  They held the ceremony outside on the veranda and had a lovely reception inside.  
Mollies bridesmaids wore knee length navy dresses.  We used white hydrangeas, yellow standard roses and yellow spray roses.  Mollies bouquet description is below the picture above but look at those Patience Garden Roses.  They are so pretty and they smell amazing.  
Molly added some special touches to her bouquet by attaching a handkerchief from her grandmother to the handle and then we also added her fathers dog tags to her bouquet in his memory. 

Navy bridesmaids dresses make the yellow roses and white hydrangea bouquets really stand out.

Love this yellow ombre cake and the beautiful blue hydrangeas.

I just had to throw this picture in.  I love seeing the pop of color in the shoes that girls wear on their wedding day.

Details that are added on to brides bouquets that are sentimental are always a lovely touch.  This was a handkerchief from Mollies grandmother.  So sweet.

And this is a very special picture to me.  This is my oldest granddaughter Kenzie.  She is a special sweet young lady and I am pretty crazy about her.  It is fun when you get to decorate for a wedding and are a guest. This was an extra special wedding for me.  Congratulations to my sweet nephew Jake and his beautiful wife and my new niece Molly.
