since the u-pick farms are such a cool and amazing thing in Portland, dlb and I have decided rather than hiring a florist for our wedding that we are going to pick flowers ourselves, with the help of our amazing friends and families of course. so this weekend, we headed out to the farm to see what was in bloom this time of year. I’ve had this idea in my head from the very beginning about using dahilas but I wasn’t sure if they would be in bloom. much to my delight, they were bright, colorful and oh so pretty and perfect. we plan to arrange dahilas and zinnias as well as some other random flowers and greenery in small thrifted vases and jars on the tables.
