The Pretty Little Flower Girl

In my previous post, I mentioned how I had made that dress for a wedding we went to over the weekend. Now I’m going to share a little bit about the rest of that event :)

The wedding was for the couple that I did the engagement session for. It was in Destin, FL, which is a beautiful area. The weather was perfect and everything was beautiful.

My daughter was the flower girl and I was so happy the bride let me make her dress! We went to JoAnn’s together and I let her pick out the colors and all. Then I got to sewing.

I just made it up as I went and I love how it turned out. I also made the little flowers for her hair and the shoes came from Target.

My daughter did such a good job at being a flower girl! It made me very proud. She was very cooperative and did fantastic for the pictures and all. She’s used to modeling for me so much she’s become a natural :)

After the wedding, her and the ring bearer went right into making sand castles. I mean, you can’t go to a beach wedding and not make sand castles!

My hubby was also a groomsman in the wedding (second in from the right).

And here are just a few more pics from the wedding and the reception:

Good times were had by all. I just love weddings!

    Beautiful wedding, and bride & groom! LOVE the colors!

    A long time ago I used to work for a company that did the chair covers, ties, etc…when we used that silky material for the bows, we had to stuff the loops with tulle to keep them looking like bows. lol

    The dress turned out beautiful too!

    Wow what a beautiful dress and wedding, you are definately talented in so many areas! Check out my side bar on my blog, you should sign up to be a “Betterist” a pro in styling or designing events or something. I was approached to sign up as a sewist, but I am sure you’d be excellent in a bunch of categories…after the baby is a little older of course!LOL Sandy

    Stunning photos Jess! You have an amazing eye for capturing the essence of it all. I love natural photos that aren’t posed for weddings.
    Your little flower girl looked just beautiful – you did a wonderful job on her dress. Were there other bridesmaids?
