The last of the wedding pictures will be shared today. The above 6 foot trees were put together a few years ago by a creative friend of mine. She used tree branches and placed in a bucket with cement. She asked if I wanted to use her trees for our wedding since it went the theme of our wedding. We were thrilled that she shared them. She had tiny white lights intertwined on the white branches. She cut out snowflakes, hooked them to the branches with ornament hooks, and used them as placecards for the reception seating.
It was an elegantly beautiful display that greeted the guests as they entered the reception area of the facility.
She had also created a larger snowflake that was placed on each table with a pinecone and evergreen, displaying the number of each table. Her creativity was a gift to us via this clever way to seat everyone.
The father - daughter dance was danced to the group Heartland's song, "I Loved Her First". Emotionally, the words got to me as I sat there watching them dance together.
They chose cupcakes to use as their "wedding cake". Chocolate and raspberry cream with white roses and edible glitter.
They were served with vanilla ice cream from a local dairy.
Here the bride and groom are pictured with the bride's cousin and the girl he recently announced his engagement to. Just amazes me that they are at this stage of their lives already. Seems like yesterday they were racing around the playground together. The engaged couple is getting married in July. Another fun wedding to look forward to.
Like all good things...the end of the evening was upon us. Saying goodbye was so difficult as she joined her new husband in the limo and headed for a life together. Difficult and yet so happy...I'm sure you know what I mean.
Your interest in the wedding and your response to the pictures helped me realize again, just how good it is to have others care in what you experience. I enjoy when you all share your lives via blog, and certainly now more than ever. Thank you!
