Last week a dear friend of mine got married.
I had the delight of being a bridesmaid, and my Little M had the big task of ring bearer. It was a quickly-planned wedding (about two months?) Yet it was pulled off beautifully and made perfect by the warm sunshine the Lord gave that day. I thought I’d share a few pictures I managed to snap during the reception on my phone.
(The details, in order of importance.)
(The scheme was based on “burlap and lace”)
(Recognize my settee? It was a cozy little love seat for the bride and groom)
(The blanket on the loveseat was given to the bride’s mother by her mother for her wedding. So special.)
(The reception featured a number of talented friends and family playing music. The Hutchisons are pictured here, and I could listen to them all day.)
(And how often do you get to roast marshmallows for a s’mores bar in a bridesmaid dress? Not often, my friends.)
(Kids found the play tent downright magical: colouring, dress up clothes, games, swords and fairy wands…)
(My sweet little fairy)
(Croquet, bocce, badminton… people stayed long and played together.)
(Don’t you love the way the sun shines on a perfect autumn day?)
(A lemonade/cider stand built by the bride’s father for the day. The bride and I gathered the old wood ourselves. It was totally worth the tetanus shot I needed. No, seriously.)
(The stunning bride.)
It was such a beautiful, fun, blessed day. But even after a good day like this…
…sometimes a girl’s just gotta’ climb into a nice warm bath. ;)
