my flower girl...

little lucy had the honor of being one of the flower girls in her uncle's wedding yesterday. i went back and forth on what to put her in (the bride being 100% obliging to whatever i wanted) and finally settled on a sweet little vintage dress that she already had hanging in her closet.



i wish i could show you photos of the handmade shoes and matching hair clip i purchased to go with her outfit, but alas, they arrived in my mailbox a few hours after the wedding. so (again, with thanks to my new & super-accommodating sister-in-law) in the end, lucy got to walk down the aisle footloose and fancy free. literally.

there's nothing fancy about those little piggies! but they sure are cute anyway, don't you think?



i had the pleasure of throwing together a quick pair of bouquets for the flower girls. i was able to pick up the flowers from the farmers market, then bound them with a few 2" sections of white linen. i ripped the fabric instead of cutting for an unrefined feel--perfect for matching those bare feet--and tied it off with more fabric instead of pinning.
hudson didn't have a role in the wedding, but i couldn't resist dressing him in a little vintage sailor suit i scored off of etsy awhile back. he was a charmer, for sure!

i even joined the kids in rocking a secondhand outfit--i ventured out to one of my favorite consignment stores to get myself a new dress. being that i was behind the camera for much of the day, there aren't any good pictures of it, but let it be known that buying used does not apply only to the kiddos!
lucy surprised everyone by walking down the aisle not once, not twice but three times! she never ceases to shock and amaze this mama with just how brave she's learning to be. is this shy little chickadee on her way to becoming a social butterfly? only time will tell!

I totally love the pictures of your kids. Lucy looks so sweet, and what could be more natural than a little bare foot bridesmaid!
