Summer love

Yesterday morning I got up far earlier than I normally would on a Saturday. I kissed Dave goodbye (lucky jerk was still sleeping) and headed up to my grand parents farm.

It was finally my aunt's wedding day, and I'd made myself head of the decorating committee.
While everybody else was scrambling about, getting bride ready, and shuttling the groom's family about, I was working away, transforming the yard into a wedding sanctuary (with help from my uncle Jeff and cousin Drake - thank goodness!)

And the work was worth it!
It was a nice casual wedding and my grandfather got to walk his youngest daughter down the aisle.So nice to see my handi-work all together - shawl, flowers, hair wreath!

The ceremony was short and sweetIt was also the first time in a very long time (almost 20 years) that all my cousins have been in the same place. So we had to snap a photo with the grandparents (and a few babies!)

I like the easy, no nonsense kind of wedding. Lovely work on the flowers, shawl and brides wreath! Nice to have the family all together! Didn't Dave go with you?
