The morning after, flowers and more flowers

The wedding was beautiful - everything about it.  And it was beautifully planned down to the last detail, as well as the reception, held in their back yard.  The bride's parents (my cousin and her husband) invited us for brunch on Sunday morning.  A few photos that I think of as the aftermath...

 - All over except the take down.

- I loved how they had wedding themed DVDs stacked up in the den of their home.  :)

- Gathering for brunch in the kitchen.  The flowers were so beautiful.  The mother of the bride said the florists made extra bouquets for the house from the wedding and reception flowers.

- Sitting outside for brunch. These were the flowers that graced the reception tables the night before.

- The father of the bride has a second career as a barber and this is the entrance to his shop in the house next door to their home.  So the reception flowed through two back yards.  These flowers were on one of the food tables.

- And of course, some of the reception flowers made it home with me.  I hope these photos load up quickly for you.  It's flower overload today!

Family scattered back to their respective states by Sunday afternoon and bride and groom are honeymooning in Grenada.  I loved the weekend.

It is all so lovely. Looks like the florist knew how to adjust the flowers in a way to save money on wedding costs.

A sweet tender wedding with some amazing bouquets.
Now to relax. No, now to clean up, and then relax.

YEAH...what a nice picture post. I love flowers at weddings and it sounds like you had a wonderful time. At least the weather was better, right? We had a party on Saturday and it was beautiful here. We deserved it after all the rain:~)

I hope the same was for you.
