My childhood best friend, who also happens to be an amazing florist, insisted I have peonies- my favorite- for my wedding bouquet.
Somehow she managed to procure the final peonies of the season and drove them from Oklahoma to texas blasting her air conditioning the whole way to keep them from blowing open.
The flowers at my wedding were hands down one of the best parts of my day. She’s a gem of a friend. Oh, and I still love peonies… they’re straight from heaven.
