September Blooms and Berries
We have an arrowwood viburnum growing in our horse pasture. The flowers it provides in the late spring and summer are always a welcome sight, but the berries that make their show in the fall are truly the icing on the cake.
The berries have been lush and beautiful this year. It is always at this time, when the berries ripen to the perfect hue of blue, I think of all of the fun ways to incorporate them in floral arrangements.
Recently, while going through old emails, I came across the professional photos that one of my September brides had sent to me some time ago. Though I try to post photos right away when I get them, as I recall, we had an over the top full schedule at that time, and posting the photos simply didn't happen in a timely manner. With the stunning viburnum berries just starting to fade in our horse pasture, I couldn't let the season pass without sharing these fun photos now.
Being a part of Rachel and Tim's special day was a gift. Tim's grandparents had lived right next to my childhood home, and I had actually babysat Tim occasionally when he was young. Meeting Rachel was a treat. She is so creative. She even made the copper flowers that we incorporated in her bouquet.
The wedding & reception took place at Rachel's parents property in Saint Johns, MI. A perfect setting for a special day.
Here comes even more sweetness...
Tim's wonderful parents...
Rachel's grandparents are adorable.
I love the expression on her grandfather's face in this next photo.
Tim's dad built all of the wooden flower boxes that were filled with flowers for the reception.
A perfect way to remember the day...
Looking forward to when our viburnum will bloom and bear berries again!~
