Wedding Saturday

We packed in a lot today. The morning was spent at the lake where, as usual, we found our favorite swimming and picnicking spot empty. No one but us ever comes before noon! We swam and dug in the sand under pearly gray skies (these reappear in my story!), then had a satisfying picnic lunch with leftover birthday cake from Felix's fourteenth.

As soon as we repacked everything and hauled it up all those sandstone steps that the Civilian Conservation Corps laid in the thirties, the skies opened and the heavy rain began.

Which made an afternoon of napping just the ticket, and a perfect prelude to a friend's wedding.

Which was supposed to be held outdoors, in a green field. But boy, was it raining, so things were hurriedly moved inside. Fortunately the affair was meant to be very casual and organic, because there wasn't much room, and the guests ended up carrying their chairs in and out to accomodate the changing plans.

I ended up eating my plateful of dinner sitting on an ice chest in the garage.

But it worked. We had a great time, enjoyed the beautiful cakes my friend Carol baked and decorated, and Giles took these gorgeous photographs.

And I really enjoyed being comfortable and wearing Keds with my polka-dotted dress.

Beautiful pictures, as always. Is that cupcakes around the wedding cake? When we went to see the woman who is making my wedding cake she said that seems to be the trend now, at least here in England.

What a beautiful bride. I love how she did her hair. All the pictures are just lovely. You never cease to amaze me with how elegant simplicity can be.

Blessings to you and your family!

Your son takes the most beautiful pictures. Is he interested in studying art or photography when he attends college in the fall?
