If you loved all the varied uses of pinks from Maren and Steve’s "Special Touches," just wait til you see their flowers. All of the texture and softness and beauty. Plus, I am adding a bonus to spark your appetite with some of my favorite food images.

Part 2- Flowers and Food

First the flowers, pinks perfect for a summer wedding.

Loving the lushness of our bride’s bouquet. And check out our groom’s boutonniere.

The walk down the aisle was just perfect with these flower baskets hanging from the seats.

They brought the pails from the ceremony to place on the cocktail hour tables.

The dinner setting was just perfect. Some tables had tall centerpieces, some with petite centerpieces, all set off by the crystal chandeliers.

One of the tall centerpieces. The use of greens and whites add depth to the arrangement.

Along the fireplace, the bride’s and bridesmaids’ bouquets were placed in glass vases tied with pink ribbons.

And now for a few sweet, yummy morsels. Maren’s caterer- Blue Rocks Catering– was fantastic. The food both looked and tasted (what we were able to enjoy) amazing!

Oh and her beautiful cake. A perfect combination of the food and the flowers!
