make your heart

Before Aaron and I met, I only knew who he was vaguely because we went to the same church, but he and his roommate Eric didn't ever socialize with anyone (or smile) so I knew nothing about them. I do remember one specific Sunday when they walked in with this tall, beautiful girl who Aaron and Eric talked to and smiled at all through Sacrament Meeting. Because I am a terrible person, I made all kinds of assumptions about them and their dating lives that were completely wrong and should have taught me a valuable lesson about assuming and asses and the like (but it didn't).

The tall, beautiful girl ended up being a friend of theirs, one who I would come to love and one who got married on Saturday.

I did her flowers for her, which I love to do regardless of the kinds of flowers involved, but was extra fun because she did a vibe similar to what Aaron and I had done for our wedding (cus Mexicans).

However, I am the worst at getting photos before I rush the flowers out the door so this is the bride bouquet in one of Aaron's hands while he drove with the other,

these are the 5 bridesmaids mini bouquets and a flower girl bouquet in a bowl on my lap,

and these are the boutonneires and mom corsages in my hand while walking up to the temple.

I wish the back of my car looked (and smelled) like this every day!

I need to get photos Tasha took of the tables, but my favorite was this sign-in table arrangement.

I love the set up stage of a party,

and the party side of a party...such a great night.

Congratulations Melanie and Zach!
