flower girl entourage

When it came to picking my flower girl, it turned into an entourage.
Five flower girls to be exact.
I never thought I’d have more flower girls than bridesmaids, but then again, I didn’t think I’d end up buying three wedding dresses for one wedding (another story for another time).

Izy because I remember when she was 3 and already very outgoing, because we rode the Dumbo ride at Disneyland, have so many happy memories, and she would write me letters when I lived in Tennessee.  Hopefully we’ll still have movie dates when she’s a teenager.
Aliyah because she’s just so darn cute and has a great personality for such a small frame.
Abby & Mica because they’re from “my side” of the family that lives in Canada, and because I loved them even before we met.
Jazzy because her moms are some of my dearest friends – to honor them through that little blessing of a kid.
That picture right there is one of my favorite pictures from the wedding.   The girls are scooping the flower petals up and putting them back into their baskets…and having a grand time doing it!  While everyone was dancing at the reception, the flower girls were throwing the petals in the air creating a shower of color (and a mess for the clean up crew)…but that, too, was one of the memories that stands out.
