I'm a little late on posting this one -- it's almost fall after all, and the wedding was in June! But I couldn't miss talking a bit about the flowers and setting of Kevin and Molly's wedding. It was the ultimate "Pretty In Pink."
The rest was up to us.
Rick was part of the lantern-hanging brigade. Another crew did the lights!
The favors were chocolate chip cookies made by Kevin's grandmother on his mom's side. She made 33 dozen and packaged them in pink and white.Those were placed on the tables with candles and flowers in the center.
The flowers! Oh, they were gasp-worthy!
Plenty of pink peonies, hydrangeas and roses.
And there were a few white spider mums thrown in!
I wasn't too sure about these tall ones -- I figured they were an accident waiting to happen. I am pleased to report no flowers were tipped during the evening!
There were also flowers for the outside where the ceremony was taking place.
When we left, the ballroom looked like this.
When we came back, pink napkins were placed, the lights were dimmed and it was a magical pink palace.
And it smelled fabulous!
And really, who doesn't look good when surrounded by pink?
