Show us Your Wedding Party

I am participating in a fun blog hop started by Kelly's Korner where we are all showing our Wedding Party/Flowers.

Our Wedding took place Downtown Memphis, TN at the Cadre on December 29, 2007 at 7 p.m. My colors where black and white. I had originally thought I was going to have my bridesmaids wear black dresses of some sort, but then as I was looking for dresses, I saw this gorgeous black and white dress with a satin sash. I knew this was it! I had one of my girls come and try it on and she loved it too! I was a little hesitant at first because the skirt was a little bigger then what you see bridesmaid's wear these days - but since it was a night wedding and in such a beautiful, elegant building, I thought that it would be just fine! I'm so glad I went with those dresses because it is different then any others I have seen and since it was 2 pieces, most of the girls have worn the top since. I love the top and have yet to borrow it from one of them! Got to do that! I stuck with white flowers of all kinds too: roses, dahlias, spider mums, peonies, and my favorite, orchids. The guys had orchids for their boutonnieres. The isle was lined with branch candelabras and white rose petals, which I loved! The floor was black concrete so the white rose petals really showed up and looked gorgeous! I mentioned some of the music in our last post. We had a small string quartet that played as guests were being seated and then had 2 gorgeous songs performed, one before the ceremony and one during. The one during was "The Prayer" and during that time Mike and I lit our unity candle, then came down the steps and went to each of our parents and gave them a hug and thanked them for everything. It was quite emotional, but such a beautiful moment! I love watching it on video!
