It’s been a whirlwind few weeks for us at Alluring Blooms =)

We got married!

It was everything we could have asked for and more. The weekend was colder than cold, but we didn’t let it dampen our spirits. We spent the weekend hanging out with the people we love most. Until we get our pics back from our amazing Aunt Rita, who was generous enough to gift us with taking photos, you’ll have to settle for some grainy cell phone pics snapped by various family members over the weekend.

Here I am hard at work on Friday night putting together the ceremony floral pieces:

And here they are in action:

On Saturday we had a short but sweet late morning ceremony at the Wisconsin State Capitol Building. We wrote the ceremony ourselves and it was very, very meaningful to us.

Here we are right after the ceremony:

After the ceremony we all went for a delish salad and pizza lunch at Francesca’s al Lago. The food was amazing. This picture at Francesca’s right after we were done eating has got to be one of my fav’s. I love how much little girls adore weddings!

Can I just take a moment to say how much I absolutely adored our flowers? They were exactly what I had envisioned. My bouquet was soft, elegant, romantic. I can’t choose a favorite part. The anemone blossoms were stunning. The vintage lace wrapped stems, out of this world beautiful.

The maids bouquets were a little more bold. They were a stunning mix of shades of green. The green ranunculus that came in were so unique! I just loved them. Here’s a shot of the maids bouquets with our rings:

Some people said I was crazy for doing our flowers… but seriously… how could I let someone else take care of my favorite part????

In the coming weeks we’ll be working on completely revamping our website thanks to our sister Amanda Kay! We can’t wait to share the new website with you.
