My Wedding Party and Flowers

Show Us Your Life Friday---Wedding Party and Flowers from
Last week I was out of town and did not have access to my wedding album so I thought I would start with a few more pictures of my wedding gown. I love how this one has the trees around the arches. Samford University has a beautiful campus!!!

Again, I do not have digital pictures of my wedding day so the quality may not be so good.

Seth and I were married at Samford University in Birmingham, AL. Samford is where we both got our music degrees. The chapel we were married in had a huge pipe organ which was very important to us since we are both musicians.

My old flute teacher played and we had the trumpet player that also performed for Harry Conick Jrs. wedding. I actually taught his daughter flute lessons so he offered to play for free. He is an awesome trumpet player.

Anyway, I am from a small town north of Birmingham so I decided to use our local florist and cake designer which was very nice. The flowers were yellow calalillies and yellow roses. I didn't really like the bridesmaids bouquets very much but I loved mine. The bridesmaids bouquet is on the left and mine is on the right.

The bridesmaids wore navy blue dresses but in different styles. I wanted them to be able to pick out which ever one they wanted in the navy blue color. The grooms men wore black tuxedos with a button for a tie. Since we are musicians and the guys are always wearing tuxes for concerts we wanted something different for them to wear for the wedding.

My flower girl was the daughter of our school of music director of instrumental studies and flute/theory professor. Her grandmother made her flower girl dress and my mom made a flower wreath for her head. She was so cute because she threw the flower petals over her shoulder when she was walking down the isle. When we asked her why she did that she said that she didn't want to step on the flowers. HA!!

Thank you for stopping by!!!
