Way back here I was assembling an outfit to wear to an upcoming wedding. You may recall our conversation about bra fittings??
Well, the wedding has come and gone and I'm just now getting around to doing a post. Yes it's true what they say about time flying.
I must say that the whole ferry experience was new to me.
My husband thought it was no big deal, but I found it fascinating to see how many cars could fit on this one big boat and even more fascinating to see how all day long these ferries filled up and traveled back and forth from the mainland to the islands.
I know... it doesn't take much for some people.
this was the best way to travel from Seattle to:
Which is where the wedding was to be held.
My nephew and his bride selected a most beautiful venue for their special day. Unfortunately I don't have a photo of the entrance to The Farm Kitchen . If you are interested in knowing more about it, simply click the link.
The weather for their outdoor ceremony could not have been more perfect.
The setting was so peaceful.
All around us were trees filled with ripening apples and plums.
We all had to laugh when a few plums decided to drop during the bride's mothers reading. Luckily they didn't land on her head :).
The new Mr. & Mrs.
The bride's dress was gorgeous and fit in so well with the vintage flair of the wedding.
After the ceremony it was a short walk to the reception.
Under this billowy white canopy, the bride and her sisters had put their own special touches to the tables. Much to my delight there were unique vintage touches all around.
At the bar.
On the tables.
The bride's sister began collecting vintage tablecloths and accessories as soon as she was told about the upcoming wedding.
The flowers were picked from the surrounding flower gardens.
I think it all came together so nicely.
My nephew and his mom both have large record collections.
I thought the use of record albums as chargers was a cute idea.
Love this idea instead of the boring guest book.
The desserts at this wedding were all homemade and out of this world.
Yum. Yum. Yum.
One of several cakes.
There was another table set up with trays of cookies.
I never even saw those until after the wedding when I was looking at the photographer's photos. Probably a good thing I didn't know at the time ; -)
Wishing a very special nephew and his beautiful bride a long and happy marriage.
Because some of you asked for a photo of the dress I selected to wear that day, I had intended to have my son take one in the beautiful flower gardens of The Farm Kitchen.
However, we were so caught up in enjoying every happy detail of the wedding that I nearly forgot.
Better late than never, as they say.
