Eat Drink and be Married!

The wedding went off without a hitch...well, not quite,,, but I digress!
Here is the card I made her. I forgot to take a picture of the inside but it just simply said Forever in an embossed, heavy silver script,.I tucked gift certificates to a local scrapbook store that has the largest  selection of wedding papers, embellishments, ribbon etc. I wrote a little note that this was for the wedding album I knew she would be scrapbooking. Luckily, he seems to really enjoy her hobby so it kind of was for both of them...teeheee They had  "The honour of your presence is present enough" on their invite...but what can a good friend do!

It was a gorgeous sunny day, 33 degrees in fact, and the golf course balcony had a bit of shade, and a bit of sun, to suit all. The wedding ceremony was lovely, the bride looked gorgeous in an ivory heavily beaded halter dress and both of them laughed and smiled and just looked happy and relaxed all evening.

We were greeted with this pretty program on our chairs.
Of course she made's  a little peek at some of the inside pages

They were married by their minister with the backdrop of the golf course just through the huge windows behind them. Luckily she has agreed to let me show the pictures on my blog. It helps that she (and some of the othere guests) read my blog!
Here is the entrance
He met her and they walked down the aisle together

 After the ceremony, we all retired to the balcony where there was a lovely spread of appetizers and wine aplenty. I thought you would all enjoy the napkins.
Once the professional photographer was through with the wedding party, we were called in for supper. I snapped this photo of the table settings.
Well, I teased you on my last post with the story of how she was wearing white cowboy boots with aqua trim under her wedding dress. Not sure if that actually happened as when I went to take that picture...she had changed...into this cute little dress and dark boots...for the dancing.
Sorry about the picture, I had only a minute to take it as they were waiting to start the dancing!

And now the mishap...
My other good friend had kindly offered to make the cake. It was delicious! Apparently, the top 2 layers slid off on the drive over. The 33 degree heat, combined with an hour journey by car, was just too much for the poor cake. My friend was in bits. Luckily a member of staff, grabbed the cake and did a quick repair job. The coke looked perfect at the cake cutting ceremony and my friend breathed a sigh of relief.

Beautiful buttefly card, with pearls which are perfect for weddings aren't they?

It sounds like you had a lovely time, the whole wedding must of taken a lot of organising.

If you could, please send us some of your sun over. Floods in August are no fun :(

Take care xx

Looks like it was a lovely wedding! I've made a few cakes that gave me that particular scare, thankfully before I even got them out of the house! Taught me to use dowels properly it did! :) Now I always stick several through the top and down to the bottom when I make a cake more than one layer that has to travel any distance by car. And sense then, no more scares! :) So glad everything worked out for your friends!
