This week we’re celebrating 8 years of marriage. Working in the wedding industry means that I’m always thinking back to my own wedding for one reason or another. But the trigger for this trip down memory lane is a field full of daisies.
We got married in my grandparents’ back yard, an outdoor ceremony overlooking the lake. It’s always been one of my favorite places on earth. There is, however, one spot in particular on their property that is even more magical. A small point of land that juts out into the water. This little pennisula is only a few feet wide and not very long at all, but the size never mattered. I used to spend hours in this spot. And it gets even better, because each June, it became overgrown with wild daisies sunbathing near the water.
Naturally I made sure that this sweet little flower would fit in with my wedding decor. It was one of the perks of getting married in June, these blooms would be a part of my wedding day.
I put this bouquet together to somewhat recreate my orginal bouquet made 8 years ago, complete with local peonies and sweet daisies. Photographed by Samantha James Photography.
Right now they’re dancing in the fields around our house and they take me right back to that place and time. This week, they’re the TownLine Journal Flower of the Week. Share your own daisies or follow along with mine #TLJfloweroftheweek here in my journal and on Instagram.
