wedding talk...


Our best friends are getting married this June. And we all get to be in the wedding. David is the Best Man, I am a bridesmaid and Annibelle's, under one condition, is the flower girl. The condition being, that since she is only going to be two, there is absolutely no way to predict what she will do. We will not be held responsible for the outcome. They agreed to take the risk.


As you can see from the above picture, they are a darling couple, oh so in love with not only eachother, but the idea of spending the rest of their lives together as man and wife. And we can hardly wait for them to get started, knowing first hand, the happiness that lies ahead.

Ever since the evening they suprised us, with glowing faces, stary eyes and gigantic smiles, with their happy news, excited to show off her most amazing, custom designed ring, Anna and I have spent hours & hours, heads together, sprawled out on the living room floor, into the wee hours of the morning, in a sea of magazine clippings...brainstorming, in search of some solid inspirational ideas to build the details of this wedding around...


Here's some of what they've decided on so far


  • location: outdoors, preferably out in the middle of a enormous grassy meadow

  • color scheme: robins egg blue with orange accents...inspired by a favorite tie of the Groom.

  • the bride is going to wear a wreath of fresh daisies in her hair

  • flowers will include blue and white wildflowers and orange ranunculous

  • table settings, sprouting green grass in barnwood boxes, river rocks adorned in writing with beautiful words like: cherish, beloved, adore, etc.

  • serving: dinner menu is yet to be decided upon but at the request of the groom, there will be ice cream cake

So on with planning, and shopping, and preparations...as the ancipation mounts.
