Wedding Weekend

I just went to a "Martha Stewart" Wedding. Seriously. My cousin got married yesterday. It was probably the best wedding I have been to. Everything was so fun. Her groom has a sod farm so they converted one of their machine barns to a garden party for the reception. It was a class act. They sodded the entire floor. The entire place smelled of roses and lilac. I think that has something to do with the hundred potted roses and lilacs surrounding the tables. The centerpieces where gorgeous! I even got to take one home! And they gave out African Violets as favors. I had been wanting a few of those. They also had those huge round lanterns strung from the ceiling providing the soft light throughout the evening. Sadly, my indoor photography skills are lacking and only came away with these no-so-decent shots. But you get the idea.





Oh, and let me mention they used an old milk tank to keep the beverages cold! Can you tell we are a Ag family?

And speaking of more family, I walked into my grandmothers TV room only to find a stack of these old family blankets. -- - -Drools- - ---

  2. Looks like a beautiful wedding. I used to art direct events and am a huge snob when it comes to event decor, haha. I think your cousin's wedding passed the test.

  3. Sounds like a fantastic wedding! I developed a bit of a passion for african violets this past year. I finally figured out how to keep them alive, and they are so pretty!

  4. That wedding must have been a grand kind of time! I would've been oohing and aahing I'm sure.
    And I just love those quilts! You can't help but hug quilts like that.
