Earlier this summer, bride-to-be Abbie posted a request on Facebook for friends for submissions of brooches and pins to include in her bouquet. I crafted a bejeweled headband with loads of pins, charms and baubles (some dating back to my high school days, so this baby is an antique!) for my own wedding last October (see my headband photos here), so I just knew by her description that it was going to be a beautiful bouquet. My headband wasn’t lightweight by any means, but her bouquet was heavy enough to double as a weapon!
Phyliss Hendley, Abbie’s friend and “second mother,” made this stunning bouquet—as well as Abbie’s feather/flower headpiece. At the bottom of the bouquet, you’ll notice “something borrowed” hanging from a satin ribbon—Abbie’s late father’s Mason ring. I think this qualifies as one of the most beautiful wedding bouquets that I’ve ever seen!
