Flower Girl Dress of the Year 2010 - Runner Up
Announcing the 2010 Pegeen Flower Girl Dresses: Wedding of the Year runner up!
Our 2010 FLOWER GIRL DRESS OF THE YEAR!
We couldn't resist: In 2009, we had over 8500 brides submit photographs from their weddings. It was the hardest year to make a decision. This year, we were close to naming THREE weddings as the Wedding of the Year! So instead, we have three categories - our Pegeen PRACTICAL DIY Wedding/Flower Girl Dresses of the Year, Our RUNNER-UP Flower Girl Dress of the Year (here) and our OVER THE TOP & FABULOUS Wedding of the Year.
Sarah, the radiant bride, made a distinctive choice for her wedding by selecting the elegant style 357 for her flower girl dresses. These enchanting gowns were carefully designed in a captivating blend of peach and baby blue silk, exuding a delicate charm that perfectly complemented the wedding's atmosphere. The dresses featured a graceful V-Back design and a Criss Cross Trellis silk top, which added an extra layer of sophistication to the overall ensemble. To complete the look, the dresses were adorned with velvet back flowers, creating a striking contrast and adding a touch of timeless beauty. Sarah's choice of style 357 encapsulated her vision for a wedding that radiated grace, poise, and a harmonious blend of colors, leaving a lasting impression on all who attended her special day.

Christopher and I both knew we wanted an outdoor wedding. Having both lived around Stillwater, we fell in love with Cindie Sinclair's old 1800s dairy farm she has turned into a flower farm. We added romance with a vintage flair throughout the wedding and reception. Guests had fun using a black and white photo booth from the traveling photo booth that allowed guests to keep one strip of photos from themselves and paste the other strip with a message in the wedding guest book. Cones made from vintage print paper were made and filled with flower petals to be tossed at the bride and groom as they went down the aisle as husband and wife. From the paper cones, to the flowers, to the tables everything was mix and match, nothing was quite the same.
Vintage silver teapots and creamers served as vases for table floral arrangements, roses in bright peach, pinks and creams were highlighted with blue flowers, white hydrangea, and eucalyptus spray painted silver. Ribbons in silver, white, peach and salmon adorned the wreath in the hair of the flowergirl, along flower arrangements lining the aisle, hanging from chandeliers, trees, and the arbor. Maud Hixson and her Big Band sang out classics such as "Night and Day" and "Fever", tables were enriched with wine classes, silver ornate silverware, peach damask napkins and pin tucked silk beige tablecloths, the pintucks mimicking the pintucks on the bodice of Brooke's flowergirl dress.
Since the groom Christopher is a chef, we supplied guests with four delicate hors d’ouvres and a four course dinner by Lake Elmo Inn. Cigars were offered to the gentlemen with blue match boxes indicating "the perfect match". Lanterns in clear, peach, blues and pinks hung with candles at various levels on the arbor and the vines were growing up the openings of the 3-sided pavilion where the reception was held. All in all, Cindie Sinclair transformed her Camrose Hill farm into a vintage whimsical, midsummer’s evening for us.
I hoped that help give you a better picture of our wedding!
