A Thimble of My Love: Bouquets and Bouts

After seeing Mr. Thimble for the first time on our wedding day, I was ready to get my bearings and make sure everything was in it’s place—or at least that the bridesmaids had a vague idea of what they should check up on. And it also meant finally getting my hands on my bouquet before continuing with more pictures.


I thought about calling this post this post “Epic Bouquet.” Our florist, upon looking through my inspiration pictures, surmised that I wanted a LARGE bouquet. I thought a regular bouquet would be just fine…but she handed me my flowers on wedding day and asked, “Is it big enough?” And I was enamored with the texture and the billy buttons and the chamomile and the pink and peachy fluffy bits. If it had to be big to fit them all in then bring on the big bouquet. =)


I only have eyes for my flowers.


The girls’ bouquets were looser with more greens. Still a bit wild and full of different textures.


The men were sporting billy buttons and herbs for their boutonnieres.


Rosemary and variegated greens for the fathers, soft lamb’s ear for the groomsmen.


Now that we had our finishing touches, we were picture-perfect for more pre-ceremony photo shoots.

    Oooooh my gosh!! Your bouquet is by far the prettiest thing I’ve ever seen in my entire life! Like, legit. I LOVE it.

    Also – isn’t it crazy how they get so big? My bouquet was awesome, but giant.
