Wedding Flowers

I had the pleasure of doing the flowers for my brother-in-law's wedding last weekend, July 24th. Unfortunately I only got pictures of the bride's bouquet and throw bouquet, but believe me, everything else was pretty too! For the bridesmaid's bouquets we did orange and yellow dahlias with plumosa, variegated pittosporum and some white little flowers that we get from a local grower (I can't remember what they're called). And then the boutonnieres were orange roses with plumosa (the groom's was a yellow orchid to match the bride) and the corsages were a mixture of daisies, carnations and roses.

The Bride's Bouquet: white asiatic lilies, orange roses, white hydrangea, and yellow cymbidium orchids with some plumosa.

I love the way it turned out! The ribbon we used to wrap it was like burlap, complimented it nicely.

Throw Bouquet: yellow-y/orange dahlias, orange spray roses, white hydrangea, solidaster, with some plumosa.

Hand Tram

Alaska is seriously one of the most amazing places on earth! We have mountains, wild animals in our back yards, crazy combat fishing, and beautiful almost unworldly forests and waterfalls. Don't believe me? Take a look at these pics from a hike we went on a few weekends ago.

Location: Girdwood, Alaska

This is the Hand Tram. Some one has to pull you across or if you're like us, you pull yourselves across.

Crossing over the river. I have no idea how high up we were.


This place reminds me of The Lord of The Rings, so beautiful and almost unbelievable.

Our Kitty, LaRue

We recently celebrated out 1st anniversary. I think our clock must be ticking (hehe) because we decided we needed something to "parent". So we adopted a kitten. She is absolutely adorable and very sweet, but also very curious. Right now she is snuggled on my lap taking a nap and purring very loud! Oh yeah, we named her LaRue (after the christian band). The pound thought that she was about 3 months old and I think she weighs about 3 pounds.

She snuggled on Eli's lap and watched him play COD.

We took pictures when we got home so we could show people, but she didn't want to be held. Too many new things to smell!

She is so precious!
