lacey, the florist.

thank you for all of your sweet comments about our new house! 
we are so excited and I will definitely share pictures once we're settled in.

last weekend, nicholas and i drove up to portland for my brother-in-law's (cj) wedding. when i first met janelle (cj's new wife) in seattle, we went to the pike place farmer's market and i was in love with all the flowers. i told janelle that having a little flower shop would be a dream job for me. well, three years later, janelle remembered that and asked if i would help out with the flowers for her wedding! i was sooo honored that she asked me to help on her big day.

the day of the wedding, me and a few of janelle's portland friends, went up to the site and put together boutonnieres, bouquets & centerpieces.

i actually have no experience in floral arrangements other than the sweet bouquets i get from my dad and my hubby. so, honestly, i was pleasantly surprised how gorgeous everything turned out. especially the boutonnieres!

The flowers are lovely, Lacey! What a considerate sister-in-law to remember a comment that you made off-hand three years ago!

They looked great Lace! I might have to hire you instead of all these florists we are meeting with to do our wedding!
