And The Wedding Continues...

There were too many great moments and beautiful things to capture at this joyous event. I could not contain them in just one post. The loveliest was the bride's smiling face. I could tell she felt like a princess all day long!

The bride was not the only one who had a cake. Unlike the three tiered soft ivory wedding cake, the groom picked a Texas Sheet cake for his groom's cake. My sister set this up on an old fashion stove for anyone to just serve themselves....and they did happily!

These lemon curd tarts were so creatively decorated with tiny bees made from icing and almond slivers. They fit the country wedding theme perfectly!

A luncheon was held for the family members after the wedding, but before a reception. The tables were decorated with mismatched ivory plates and clear goblets of water. My niece made these adorable napkin holders from raffia and buttons.

To honor family members both past and present, wedding pictures were displayed in mason jars with a flame less tea light and hung from a tree. Arriving guests could stroll past and look at the happy couples.

Pictures of the bride and groom were hung in wooden frames suspended by soft silk ribbon on the back of the house.

Instead of a guest book, family and guests could put their fingerprint on a branch of this tree; writing their name. I put mine next to my sister whom I love dearly! This picture shows my 89 year old aunt putting her stamp of approval on the tree. She promptly asked for an alcohol wipe for her finger!

Towards the early evening a rain cloud threatened our celebration, however, it passed us by only getting us a tiny sprinkle.

Thanks so much for the comment. My sister was disappointed in the groom's table because she had planned to set up more trinkets to let us know his hobbies and interests; little bike for biking, etc. but I thought it was great as is!
