The floral department recently arranged and made adornments for teacher Brittany Hayes’ wedding.
Hayes, formally known as Pennick, held her wedding April 5 at the Pine Lake Ranch Wedding Venue. There was a variety of adornments made by the advanced floral students. This was the 22nd wedding the floral department has helped adorn.

“I knew they did a good job with flowers,” Hayes said. “I thought it would be really cool to give students the opportunity to do that.”
According to floral teacher Jessica Smith, the students were prepared and had experience from previous weddings they had worked on.
“They collectively have worked on four other weddings,” Smith said. “So I knew that they could do it because they have done it before. It is a process, I walk them through it.”
Senior Consuelo Escalante said the project was stressful at times because they only had one week before the deadline.
“At times I enjoyed it,” Escalante said. “But other times we did have a deadline, so we had to push with doing some arrangements.”
Finishing a large project like Hayes’ wedding was senior Savannah Miles’ main concern. After the wedding was over, she felt relieved, Miles added.
“My first thoughts was that it was a lot,” she said. “We did not think we could finish in time, because of how much it was but we did.”
Junior Jose Lopez said that the best part of the project was the outcome and reflecting back on all the hard work.
“I really liked the outcome because I felt like I really did try my best to make everything look good and presentable,” he said.
The floral students who helped out include: Amie Doak, Consuelo Escalante, Jose Lopez, Melissa Mancha, Savannah Miles, Iris Ponce, Nancy Ramirez, Madison Rogers, Angelica Urena, and Georgia Ward.
