Summer Wedding Flowers in Sacramento

Liz and Joe love each other!  Look at this picture.  Can’t you see so much happiness in their future?

I would want no less for the girl I have known since she was knee high to a grasshopper.  I have known Liz since she was about 8 years old.  In fact, I sat next to her brother Josh in high school math.  Josh and my husband Jim were in a band together in the early 90’s (Check this out for a bit of a trip back in time: The Rosebuds). So when I heard Liz was getting married my reaction was , “Whaaat?  Is she of legal age??”  Um yeah- time flies.

Liz and Joe are a musical couple.  Both music teachers and musicians in their own rights.  Joe plays and teaches the trumpet and Liz is an opera singer and teaches voice.  They are going to have some talented kids!

When Liz first started talking with me about her wedding flowers she used descriptive words like fun, bright, light hearted.  She had fabric swatches we used for the inspiration of royal blue, orange and hot pink.  I love a girl who loves her color!

Liz and Joe’s photographer was none other than my bestie, Beth with True Love Photo.  If I have said it once, I have said it a million times, Beth rocks my socks with her creative wedding photography.

Beth and I were talking one day before the wedding and the conversation went something like this:

Beth: I want to do a really cool and crazy pre-shoot for Liz.  Because all my good ideas come from you, Shannon, what should I do?

Shannon: Well, I am the queen of all inspiration.  How about finding an awesome tattoo parlor and stage her gettin’ some ink?

Beth: Shannon, you are the wind beneath my wings.***

***May or may not have been edited to make me look good. 

Liz’s bouquet was peonies, roses, hydrangea and hypericum berries.  Pretty!

Congratulations to Liz and Joe.  You guys make beautiful music together!  I know, groan.
