a glimpse ~

{ part 1 of wedding photos }

Again, I feel like I have fallen off of blogland.  I never did get the chance to have a nice sit and catch up on your news.  And I've just realized that on my side bar, on the bedside table, it's saying "One Day' and that's a book I finished reading over a month ago.  Which by the way is a great read, I quite enjoyed it.  A good love story. 

I simply have a hectic life of late ~ I'm not sure I remember a time that felt more busy?  Just simple stuff really ~ work, kids, after school activities, life,
etc, etc,
yet it is feels quite tiring nonetheless.  But! Coming up, I will soon have three day weekends, just long weekend after long weekend, and let me tell you THAT is something I am looking forward to!

I wanted to share a few photos of my girlfriend's wedding day!!
  On September 10th, her and her love were married!  It was a weekend of celebrations as Friday evening stretched into Sunday morning.  I planned many of the little details for her ~ way back when, I told her I would love to help her plan something, and that idea soon turned into her hiring me to plan it.  And while I like to plan small parties for close friends and family, I have only ever planned one other wedding before - mine. 
And at the end of it all, I would say I enjoyed it.  I invested much love into it, and I liked seeing the ideas come to life, especially when they were for someone else.  And she loved it, and that meant the world to me.  I never got a chance to take many photos of course, these are ones that were passed along, I was the one doing a whole lot of running around and it didn't occur to me until it was too late. 
I'm sure some of the 'magic' must be lost when you observe the wedding planner running around so frenzied! *sigh*

Above are the aqua mason jars I mentioned.  My sister and the bride's mom arranged all the flowers day of.  They did such a fantastic job.  The collection they were working with was gorgeous, of course, but I could never have grouped them together so effortlessly.  For the ceremony, we wrapped wire around some of the jars, and then hung them from inexpensive shepherd's hooks down the aisle. 


...these adorable feet belong to the bride and groom's little boy!

And gorgeous boxwood wreaths!  These were a bit of a splurge once you factored in the shipping and duties, but a very pretty first impression.  There were a 'M' and a 'C', and they hung on the outside gates as you first drove up to the Inn.  To get their money's worth, the bride and groom are going to bring them out at Christmastime, for 'Merry Christmas'.  With a bit of festive tweaking, it may just work!

More to come!
