St. Paul Farmer's Market
This took a bit of time management, but somehow Satori and her mother and my brother found time before the reception to get to the market and get several bouquets of fresh cut and locally grown flowers. I had give them a hundred dollars for flowers, forgetting how many flowers that can buy you! They brought them back to my apartment, and along with the bouquets, which Satori turned into one big bouquet for herself, my Brother Biso bought really beautiful potted plants and had the idea to bring them with him to the park in his mini van. It was really nice, having them mark the top of the alter. I'm sad, though, because no one thought of going back and getting them afterwards.
The morning of, my bridesmaids left their apartment, got coffee and picked up several bouquets of flowers from the farmer’s market. If you have been to the market, you would know how beautiful the flowers are. I think the flowers look even better because they are grown locally, which means we are seeing what is in season, rather than some mutation. It was great having the girls remember to pick up flowers. We picked out the flowers we wanted, and made our own unique looking bouquets. Brock’s mother used the other bouquets to decorate the tables with. It’s always nice to have fresh flowers, but I could have stood up there without flowers. Or maybe not. No, I guess I really loved having fresh flowers there.
