May 28 Blog Family Wedding

                                                                 BLOG  May 28, 2013

I’ve had a busy two weeks and taken time off from writing about your decorating journey.  My niece, Megan, was married at our Lake Martin, Alabama family home this past weekend and I did the flowers for both the wedding and reception. The wedding was held at a charming outdoor chapel on Lake Martin.  It is accessible either by boat or car and there is a charming, wooded path to the chapel and there are no walls so that the woods are visible on three sides and the lake is the backdrop.  The weather was cool and the light sparkly for the ceremony.  Megan graduated from medical school earlier the same week so she felt happy and carefree having arrived at this point.  Her father, my brother, Tom and her mother Vici are blessed to have a wonderful bunch of friends and family that all lent a hand in the event and the extended party weekend.  They went so far as to provide the rehearsal party site, the reception site, provide a magnificent fireworks display, do the brides make-up,  bake a beautiful wedding cake and cook up a wonderful  Louisiana crawfish boil.  There were lots of willing hands to transform the already beautiful  lake home that was the site of the reception into a truly magical setting!  Megan’s groom  plays fiddle in three bands and all three bands came from Atlanta and provided great music!

I’m home now and just so happy that it all went off so well and really amazed AGAIN (as this is not the first time I’ve seen this) at what spectacular things loving friends and family can make happen when they all come together and share their talents and abilities.
