The theme for this wedding is "Little Mermaid meets Burlap and Lace".
She has gorgeous red mermaid hair and the groom is a boots and jeans guy and together they participate in trap shooting gun competitions. The weddings colors are red, mint, tan and cream, with ivory lace. The bride to be chose the "jade" burlap, as she thought it was closest to her chosen shade of mint. Each wedding package can be customized to reflect the couples color, theme, personalities, interest and of course number of attendants, etc.

As we discussed the details and ideas of her wedding, she ask if I was able to make shotgun shell boutonnieres and she nearly cried when I said yes. The groom really wanted the shotgun shell bouts, but she didn't see any in my shop. From time to time, I do have request for them and was happy to make them. My nephews were happy to contribute shells to the cause! I went to take their senior / family pictures last week and there was lots of skeet shooting involved and I snatched up all the empty shells from them! They also promised to save me more and get me more colors of shells. (Currently I have red, yellow and a few black.) The boys participate in the 4-H shotgun competitions, were they just placed 1st and 4th in their divisions.
