As I'm not much for updating very often as of late, I figured I could post a few pictures while I'm waiting for Rob to finish his homework, before we can go home. For my color photography class this semester I've done a small series of pictures. Here are my four favorite.

I chose to photograph weeds because being a horticulturalist I naturally tend to take pictures of flowers and plants. Most people see weeds as a nuisance, but I think they are beautiful. I hope that you can appreciate their beauty as well.

They finally loaded. It's about freakin' time. 8/22/09

Teri and Clint!

My baby sister Teri married her sweetheart on June 27th, 2009. Her colors were hot pink and lime green, which made the floral work a lot of fun. I was pleased to create . . .

Teri's hand tied bridal bouquet of hot lady roses, white cala lilies, green hypericum berries, lily grass, and salal with white satin ribbon.

Three bridesmaids bouquets, consisting of a white cala lily, hot pink gerbera daisies, white waxflower, and salal with green polka-dot ribbon and bow.

Nine boutonnieres--each one unique--consisting of a hot lady rose, accented by combinations of green hanging amaranthus, green hypericum berries, kermit mums, lily grass, myrtle, salal, and curly willow.

Five wrist corsages with either two hot lady roses with wax flower, salal, and a bow; or one hot lady rose with kermit mums, waxflower, and salal with a bow.

A grand buffet design which included hot pink gladiolus, white cala lilies, hot lady roses, green hanging amaranthus, pink heather, myrtle, salal, curly willow, and limes.

The flowers on the cake were hot pink gerbera daisies and kermit mums.

A hand-tied throwing bouquet, which had hot lady roses and white waxflower--the fun of this bouquet was that it was actually two separate bouquets that we disguised as one.

When Teri threw it, it separated--as planned--and two lucky girls (both bridesmaids) were given the fortune of "catching the bouquet".

Congratulations to Teri and Clint! It was a beautiful wedding and one heck of a party!
