{Wedding Series} and {Nov. Thankful Moments} : Flowers

My {Wedding Series} and {November Thankful Moments} post is specifically on 
Winter has commenced in Utah. The beautiful colors of fall have faded and the brisk, yet still pleasant afternoon walks are dissipating. I step outside and the chill is that chill that is just a little too cold. You need your hands in your pockets in order to be okay. And friends, I don't like having to have my hands in my pocket. 
I have always wanted a summer wedding. I dreamed of having it in my backyard in the luscious, green state of Oregon. And I did. And it was perfect. I was bored with planning my wedding after two weeks. Ha. I cared about three things: my dress, the photographer and the flowers. Once that was done, I honestly did not have that strong opinion on certain things. I knew Michael, my gay florist from Portland who was, and I mean this in every stereotypical way, fabulous. Because, well, he was. He was seriously amazing. And this may sound pathetic but the second he handed my bouquet as I stepped out of the temple, I was almost moved to tears. They were little the most beautiful things I had seen. Haha! He knew my style and my taste and totally went with it. And it was the kind of bouquet I wanted exactly.
So pathetic, huh? 
But, seriously. 
I would rather have flowers over chocolates. 
(I know, I know). 
Something about flowers just makes me feel feminine and sweet, which are, well, two things that I don't exactly portray all of the time. They smell amazing and make everything so beautiful around them. 
I am especially grateful for them during this time of year because they are not up to their potential right now. And I dream of the days of walking through fields and smelling flowers in the warm spring days. (yes, I know. Already thinking of it and it's only November). 
So, take a gander at this bad boys and you will see what I'm talking about.
mmmm so perfect.
