This past weekend I drove up to Minnesota for the wedding of one of my college roommates, Jason. I hadn’t seen him for a few years and I thought it would be fun to join in the festivities. The wedding was lovely and the reception was cozy. The family and friends, a couple of whom I knew from school, were welcoming and we all had a great time eating, talking and dancing the night away in the bride’s backyard.
|Drinks and passed hors d’oeuvre hour happened in the front yard with small tents, flowers and photos of the bride and groom’s family’s wedding photos (parents, grandparents, etc.) |
|As you entered the backyard, there were flip flops in assorted sizes for guests; probably to encourage dancing, and to avoid heels sticking in the grass.|
|The perfect setting for a reception.|
|The flowers were beautiful, although I might be a little biased as they were gerbera daisies and ORANGE!|
|The bride and groom.|
|The cake. I loved how detailed this wedding was. The food was excellent, the weather was perfect (pouring rain during the ceremony – for good luck – and sunny with a breeze for the reception), and a good time was had by all. Congrats Stephanie and Jason!|
