I love our wedding flowers!

The photos from our photographer, Isabel March, are still to come, but meanwhile I had to devote a blog post to our beautiful wedding flowers. Our florist was Amy Young at Leaves of Grass; she’s up and coming in the business and gave us a fantastic deal. I was thoroughly pleased — nay, overjoyed! — with her beautiful arrangements, which suited our wedding perfectly.

According to Amy, our flowers included “purple hydrangea, two shades of purple hyacinth, two shades of purple tulips and some lilac and purple lisianthus.” I know next to nothing about flowers, but I thought there might also have been some peonies, deep purple to fuschia in color (check out the boutonnieres), as wel as a dark purple petunia. I’m in the process of drying my bouquet in the attic, so maybe I’ll be able to determine the mystery flowers’ identities later!

The hyacinth were so fragrant! I kept the bridesmaid hyacinth bouquet in our living room for the next week, and they were still beautiful when I finally tossed them. Incidentally, our flowers also inspired me to plant some hydrangea on our balcony.
