The Rehearsal

When we last visited our bride and groom, they were leaving the rest of the setup at the firehouse to their awesome helpers and heading to the ceremony site to practice their “I do’s”.

Everyone converged on the site (I had my clipboard and my ‘Mom Voice’ so everyone would listen):

Saturday…

…the real work began.  We needed to turn this:

Firehouse Before...

into a wedding wonderland.  Not an easy prospect!  The pom pom fluffing began in earnest:

up next, the rehearsal!



Wedding prep began…

…on Friday.  When I took delivery of 650 roses and assorted amounts of stephanotis and hypericum berries.

Have you ever seen 650ish roses in one place before?

The roses I used for my own bouquet aren’t pictured because there was an issue with the order.  I ended up carrying peach roses that my mom found at Price Chopper – and they were awesome!

My mom, sister and assorted other minions arrived soon after the roses and a day of flower arranging commenced.  We put together 45 centerpieces (3 for each table), 5 bouquets, 7 boutonnieres, and 3  corsages.   No photos because I was wrapped up in flower arranging but you’ll see the results soon!
