Andrea Pearson (now Andrea Skinner) has been a good friend of mine for the last year, and when she started planning her wedding, I
Here is her beautiful bouquet of roses, daisies, ivy, babies' breath, and tree fern.
You can also see the groom's flowers in the background.

Here are the parents' flowers. Oh, and the parents, too ...
Here is a group shot of the flowers together,
with their matching people.
Here is a close-up of the cake. Man, a good photographer makes
all the difference in the world.
Here's a full shot of the cake. Disclaimer: I did not make
the cake. I just put the flowers on it.
Yep, it was a lot of fun. But I'm glad I don't do weddings often - there's a lot of stress. What if it doesn't turn out right? What if ... oh, I don't know ... the bride is walking out of the temple and all the roses start to fall out of the bouquet?
Don't believe such a thing could happen? Well ...
This would be the picture taken right after two of the trailing roses fell out onto the pavement outside the temple. Yeah. I was standing right there and was able to make some repairs, and then later in the evening, made some more repairs ... there was a foam vs. rose stem thing happening, over which I had no control, but we all survived, and I do believe Andrea and Nolan will live happily ever after anyway.
My thanks to Glenn Pearson for letting me use his amazing pictures - seriously, if you need a photographer in the Utah Valley area, you should look Glenn up.
