This bouquet was over the top thanks to the enormous dinner plate dahlia from All Dahlia’d Up Flower Farm.
The bridesmaids’ bouquets were equally as luscious with smaller pink and purple dahlias, waxflower, myrtle, seeded eucalyptus and white spray roses.

The groomsmen’s bouts were all similar but slightly different. I love that!
The bride and groom were wed in misty, beautiful Girdwood this afternoon. Many congratulations to the happy couple!
