Roses Roses Roses!

We did all the flowers for the wedding ourselves! Well, almost--we had the expert assistance of our good friend Maria who just happens to also be an amazing floral designer. Jenni told her what she wanted, gave her the money, Maria went to the Boston Flower Market and showed up Saturday afternoon just before rehearsal with a bucket full of beautiful long-stemmed wedding roses and ready-made bouquets and boutonnieres.

Sarah, who was an amazing help to me in setting up also showed up to help. She and Jenni stripped the roses (ouch) while Maria put together the centerpieces. It was quick and fun! And we had the most amazing flowers-in white, cream, yellow and orange! Maria added some beautiful freesia to Jenni's bouquet just to make it extra special, and it was just perfect. Thank you Maria! And thank you Sarah!
