I was honored to be included in the set up and prep on Friday as well as to attend to small details the day of the wedding.
Since pictures are worth a thousand words, let me share a few (most are mine, but the talented
Alexandra Roberts Photography is responsible for the one below)
Kristina and Steve made a dashing couple....
I got to hang out with my fabulous and fun cousins and their spouses.
The wedding venue, a working flower farm, was stunning....
both the outside overlooking Sheepscot River,
and the inside, the lavender drying house, a timber frame barn.
The massive barnwood and iron tables were part of the venue,
but everything else had to be rented and set up.
I did a little on the spot crafting.
The flowers, grown right on site, were perfect,
displayed in a collection of vintage bottles that the bride had amassed since her engagement.
And then there were the hand made touches by the bride and groom,
like the "gift house" made to look like the couple's home.
And the tree ring guest book, made from a tree taken down in their yard,
the table numbers crafted from cedar shingles,
and even the home brewed beer, complete with personalized labels
depicting the couple's beloved dogs.
Many guests brought a pie or desert to share at the desert table
and the groom's sister made the beautiful wedding cake.
And a shameless plug for me, I made the belt on Kristina's bridal gown!
The purchase of which, BTW, was featured
on the TLC show "I Found the Gown"
a spin off of the popular, "Say Yes to the Dress."
Congratulations Kristina and Steve!
It was an amazing and special day, full of love,
family, friends and beauty.
Don't you just adore an outdoor wedding, full of clever details???
