Flower Girls



Mary Ashley and Emma were delighted to serve as flower girls in Haley's wedding Labor Day weekend.



I made the girls' dresses, ivory sundresses with wide satin bows at the shoulders. Haley's mother, Nancy, shared yards of lace insertion leftover from the heirloom garments she made for Haley through the years, so I used those for the lace panels at the top of the dresses. I love that the flower girl dresses share a connection with the bride's childhood!

Emma and Mary Ashley are breath taking in their special dresses and pearls! The origin of the lace makes everything even sweeter. I love seeing flower girls that still look like the precious little girls they are. You did a wonderful job!

They are exquisitely beautiful little girls, and from what I can tell, both inside and out. I know they make you proud, and probably will throughout their entire lives. You are truly blessed, as are they to have you as a mother.
