Dreams Come True

Gesche Metz (Bride) INDEPENDENCE, VA
I'd been married 3 times, but never really had a wedding. (My mother had one, but that's a different story!) I LOVE flowers, and they became the theme of the wedding. Beautiful, old fashioned ones like peonies and garden roses, stock, and lily of the valley. I had the wedding I always dreamed of, and married my true soul mate in my sister's garage, which is pretty much where we met. I didn't do my own flowers as to save money, but because I love them, love arranging them, and wanted complete control over the look. And we were all so happy with the results!!
Flowers by with Jen, Michelle, and Brenda
