Lura and John are married y’all. Finally. The one consistent theme during the toasts from the best man and maid of honor was how they never thought this day would come. But it did. It was a hot & humid August day where the air was thick and felt like a second layer of skin. The bridal suite was full of giggles and anticipation as Lura stepped into her dress. John eagerly waited in the groom’s suite always asking if it was time to get dressed and see his bride. And then the first look happened. The bridesmaids looked on from the kitchen windows with squeals and tears. Lura truly had some of the best girls by her side that day. Oh, and the father/daughter dance?! Cue the waterworks, folks. I knew this family for a short while but I saw how fiercely that Papa Bear loved his cubs.
On a personal level this wedding day was full of accomplishments. First, it was my 30th birthday. I was a bit hesitant to take on this wedding, at first. I mean who doesn’t want to celebrate their 30th birthday?! But I WAS celebrated by a great couple and their gracious family. I got a birthday card and a totally awkward birthday dance in the middle of the reception :). Lura and John also completely trusted me with their floral design. It was so fun to walk her through the process of choosing her flowers, picking them up and then watching the buckets of blooms transformed into exactly what we had talked about in our consults. I was so proud to bring everything to the venue!
