It's been quite a season. Wedding after wedding. One graduation after another. And I love visiting all those mega wedding blogs too. SO beautiful and spectacular. Great for ideas.
None of the weddings I've attended this season have been on the blockbuster scale, though. Most of them have been funded by the couple themselves with a little help from parents. Modest affairs, but still costly. And tons of work!
I really admire the effort and thinking that goes into a "home grown" wedding. Even if not actually held at home. I just attended one such affair last night. The marriage of a good friend's daughter.
Once again the wind played a little havoc with the outdoor ceremony. And there were unexpected problems to surmount on the last day. Few are ever privy to the dramas that play out at the culmination of an event so fraught with expectation. But it turned out a heartfelt occasion with palpable joy attached to it alongside the tulle bows.
The bride and friends made decorations in the preceding weeks. One especially sweet element was the tiny seed packets provided as a favor to each guest. But the biggest favor was the obvious good time the couple had with friends and family on their special occasion.
Hope you're having sweet times this weekend too!
Ciao! for now!
