You're in a great business. Do you ever get tired of them. I love to see the different wedding scenes that people choose. My friend Katherine has officiated over some unusual weddings. One on horseback recently.

Ooooh - lisianthus! And cockscomb in a bridal arrangement? That's really inventive!

That's the part I like best! The imagining how it all turns out.

Those bouquets are stunning. I always enjoy the pics of the flowers that aren't arranged yet, to go along with the finished product.

These are such lovely color selections. It astounds me that mere humans can put them together so perfectly!

You are lucky to be in such a beautiful and creative industry.

I'm sure there is plenty of pressure at times but to make up for it, you deal with beautiful things and happy occasions!!

Good for you.

They make the ones we had in our day so plain, heavy and boring although
I did love my white on white elegant bouquet which was unusual at the time as was having a spray of lily of the valley on my bum:)
