She had me at leather.
I am generally not a fan of boutonnieres. There's something emasculating about them. As H-town put it when I enlisted his help in talking TTO out of organza,* "It looks like prom.... It defies the best-case scenario for wedding apparel, where the guys look cool and tough, and the ladies are all dolled up and decorated with flowers."
But Afton made these minimalist boutonnieres** out of wheat stalks and white deer leather. Nothing emasculating about that. Plus they're not just for the groom and the groomsmen but for her parents, godparents and family members.
*IknowIknow. I'm bossy. But that's why you love me.... Right?
**Also, I refuse to call them "bouts." Gag.
