This wedding was particularly special for me as it joined my little sister Olivia with her college sweetheart, Joshua. The design was a joint venture between our talented mother (calligraphy), the groom (graphic design) and me (florals & decor). As all of us were in different locations across the country, it was challenging to schedule phone calls, but such a joy to see everything come together so exquisitely in Tulsa at the Alma Mater that I share with Liv & Josh. Olive leaves were used throughout the wedding decor as a nod to the origin of Olivia's name. Other flowers included roses, ornamental kale, sweetheart roses, hypericum berries, peonies, scabiosa, hydrangea, curly willow and monkeytails. The paper sheet music flowers in Olivia's bouquet and the boutonnieres was Olivia's major DIY contribution to the event, and a nod to both Josh and Olivia's love of music. There were so many personal touches, I could go on for days. It was such a perfect day.
(Olivia will be joining me here on Friday to do a guest post and share a tutorial for the sheet music paper flowers that she designed and made!)
