A little story

I didn't get bouquets for the flower girls. I did decide they needed something small, but figured we could pick a bouquet for them. And I was eyeing up flowers in the neighbourhood I could pick from the park. There used to be several white lilac bushes in a park near us, but they were trimmed too much last year and didn't fully come back this year. Then I noticed an apartment building near us had a rather large, beautiful white lilac bush in full bloom a couple weeks before the wedding, that was it. On the drive from my house to my parent's house (for family photos), I made my mom stop so I could pick them.

I knew she would find it ridiculous, so I didn't tell her what I was doing. She had no idea why I yelled at her to stop. Then I ran out of the car to get the flowers. My mom was not impressed, I think my photographer (who was with us) thought I was doing it just to frustrate my mom (which was not why I did it, though it did frustrate her), but I got two lovely white lilac bouquets for the flower girls to carry.

The photographer snapped pictures of me running back to the car with my stolen loot: (Source: Unveiled Photography)

(Even though the lilac bush was on private property, I figured who would yell at a bride for stealing such a small amount of flowers. It was a gamble that paid off!)

Love the picture, the dress and the story! I would have totally done the same. I actually added white lilacs to my bouquet (but the tree was mine :-) ) at the last minute as well.
