My mom and I are both obsessed with weddings, even though neither of us is getting married any time in the distant future. I guess our fandom is justified, seeing as my mother is a florist who works with brides all the time and I was brought up in that same atmosphere -- that is to say, surrounded by happy brides and blooming peonies tucked carefully in hydrangea bouquets.Here's my mom and I, presenting at a garden show.  So not so surprisingly, this is how ...
