Shabby-Chic to Soggy-Chic

Mr C and I headed to my home state this past weekend for my niece’s wedding celebration.

It was a whirl-wind trip and far too short of a visit but it was so great to go ‘home’ and see the family.

The yard was prepared and looking stunning. The day before and on the morning of the wedding I snapped a few pics of the yard showing all of the hard work that had been done.

Many months of planning, hard work and preparation went into this wedding. I was honored to be asked to be part of the process and help with the flowers. I put together and scattered arrangements on the wedding party tables and around the yard.

The tent was up and decorated in the cutest shabby-chic look. Lanterns and antique linens adorned the tables along with simple vases of flowers, most using antique milk glass vases.

The ceremony was lovely and the church was filled with loved ones.

We returned to the yard and began visiting while the bridle party had photos done at a local historical site.

It was overcast and a little bit sprinkley, but everything looked beautiful

The next generation of our family were all looking precious

And then the rains came…

And boy did it pour!

They were prepared for rain, but not flooding! The entire tent filled with 4 or more inches of water!

At this point many brides would have a complete meltdown.

But not this girl! Her new hubby looks to be in great distress, but he handled it like a trooper too!

Nope… this bride tied up her dress and her wonderful new husband rolled up his pants and they made the best of it

Everyone took their cue from them and dinner and dancing went on as planned

Some seemed to have come more  prepared than the rest of us

There MAY have been a little bit of mayhem involved!

But a few tears were shed when Daddy danced with his baby girl to Jim Croce’s Time In a Bottle

And when the bride and groom danced to Ed Sheeran’s   Thinking Out Loud

The night has been described as “The best wedding EVER!”  “A beautiful disaster” “Unconventional” “Crazy fun” and “Certainly memorable”

I agree with all of those and can only add that whenever a group of people come together to celebrate love …. well, nothing could possibly ruin that.

I’ll post more pics of the fun-filled night and the morning after tomorrow.
