Hello Knotties! It's a trip to be posting here again--I was very active in this community when planning my wedding years ago. We are coming up on our 15th anniversary and would like to have a very tiny (just us and our 2 kids) vow renewal. Unfortunately, my brother was killed in a car accident 2 months before our wedding and while I was so glad to be getting married to my husband, it was a really heavy day in a lot of ways. So, we were thinking it would be fun to plan a tiny party for our anniversary that could be more of a fun day.
We're planning to get new rings to exchange, and will have our pastor do a short (like... 10 minutes) ceremony with us in the small chapel of our church. Our kids (ages 6 and 10) are very, very excited about this and have announced that we will be dressing up.
Hence, we need flowers!
For our wedding we did all white hydrangeas. So for this, I'd like to do something COMPLETELY different and have gotten hooked on the idea of a bouquet with all green cymbidium orchids, like this:
Anyone have a florist they love that wouldn't charge an arm and a leg for this? (Our wedding florist seems to have gone out of business--ack!) Mpls or SW metro preferred.
After the ring ceremony, we plan to have a family photo session on the Stone Arch Bridge, followed by a small dinner at Bachelor Farmer. Or would another restaurant in that area be better?
Fun to post here again & thanks for any and all advice!
