Hey all, Brooke here! As I was scrolling through all the gorgeous images to post for you today, this boutonnière just popped out at me. At first, it made me chuckle because I can almost visualize all of you sweet grooms standing with your chins turned and thinking how awkwardly close Mallory or Lilly is to get this particular shot. (Trust me though, gems like these are so worth it!) But then...my brain pondered over to a mental picture that is forever stuck in my head and it is of my dad's wedding boutonniere that he somehow secured in the tachometer of his 1957 #chevybelair on the dashboard. My dad rebuilt his #gold '57 Chevy when he was just 15 years old and we always joke that it was his first love, even though that's a true statement. Anyone who has had the pleasure of riding in the passenger seat while he thought he was #daleearnhardt , knows the feeling of watching the needle climb into the red zone of the tachometer and probably has that same mental picture of staring at the dried rose with baby's breath and just hoping the man behind the wheel would slow down! Now looking back I find it so sweet that he kept a momento from the day he married my mom, in his beloved '57 Chevy.
Keeping your wedding flowers after the big day is such a cool way to have a gentle reminder as time goes on. Did you keep any flowers from your wedding day? How did you preserve them?
