when flower farmers get married

Dear Readers,

We got married!!!

I don't want to seem self involved by posting wedding pictures on the farm blog, but I really want to share how glorious entirely local flowers are. I'm proud of what we've done at the farm; four years ago, I couldn't have imagined we'd have this bounty.

So, this post's purpose is to show you our wedding flowers, which were grown 100% by us and designed by the team at Local Color Flowers. I hope these photos (by L.A. Birdie) remind you that the world is beautiful!

Walking up to Jascha for the "first look." For those of you who aren't familiar- the "first look" is a moment before the ceremony where the bride and groom see each other for the first time all dressed up. The point is to get pictures of the bride/groom, family, and bridal party before the ceremony so that afterwards, they can go straight on to partying.
