Kelly and John's Memorial Day weekend wedding was a bit of a humbling experience for me. They had invited any and all guests to dress in the uniform in which they had served. It was so striking to see young men as well as gentlemen of an "advanced" age dressed in their blues and grays and whites. So impressive!
Kelly chose a color palette of yellow, black, and white. All of the bouquets were a variation of those colors. Kelly carried a bouquet of yellow roses - some with black pins in them - and white mini-calla lilies. The two MoHs held bouquets of white roses and yellow mini-calla lilies white the bridesmaids' bouquets were made up of white carnations and yellow mini-calla lilies. And the junior bridesmaid - Kelly's daughter - carried a bouquet of yellow roses with yellow mini-calla lilies. They all blended together so nicely. John did not wear a boutonniere on his uniform but the groomsmen did wear yellow rose boutonnieres.
PS - I felt a little bit like Santa Claus at this wedding for waiting for me was a beautiful tray of delicious cookies! One of my former lovely brides - Christin Cicippo-Smith - surprised me with this adorable tray of cookies. Thank you soooo much Christin - they were so yummy! (She knows I'll work for cookies!)
