Wow, we just married off our youngest daughter and the wedding was amazing! Lots of wonderful little personal touches that made it intimate and reflective of their tastes and message. We worked in conjunction with her florist, Collected with Love in San Clemente, to grow most of the succulents that would be the base for the bouquets, boutonnieres, and center pieces. 20 bags of potting  soil, 200+ plastic starter containers, 25 plastic trays later, we were ready. The yard was also used to trim, fill, and add to the array of plants. I can happily report that two months later, it is back to full glory – although it was very well sliced back to the point in which I wondered why I had offered 🙂 Honestly, trimming things in the summer does do wonders for the fall blooms of succulents.

Here’s a few photos of the wedding prep and in the next post, I’ll show you the wedding photos with all the succulent amazement.
