unthrown flowers

We just got our photos back from the photographers and are really happy with them. This is my beautiful bouquet that turned out just how I envisioned. I avoided the tradition of throwing the bouquet for a few reasons. But now my bouquest is dried and the white flowers have turned brown :(
For my sisters (bridesmaids) I wanted pommanders (aka flower balls). I was also very happy with how they turned out.
Simple green hydrangeas for the men. For blue's buttonhole I had a koru (fiddlehead) added in. The silver fern is a national symbol here in NZ and koru images are very prevalent in Maori culture where it symbolizes new beginnings, rebirth and all that jazz (We also had a koru on our invites).
