I'm back from the recent wedding of our 
son and his lovely new bride!  

I have a collection of pictures from 
an iPhone and my trusty little digital 
camera!  

I'll have to wait a little longer to see the  
professional versions!

With Angela's family being Italian they 
put together a lovely Tuscan themed 
wedding to honor their heritage!
I'm sharing a few pictures I took 
before the reception got underway!


The reception took place at this lovely 
outdoor location under this elegantly 
appointed room.


The color theme was blue, yellow and 
white and there were many sunflowers as 
accents everywhere!


The tall centerpieces came off the stands 
and all the floral centerpieces were given 
as a gift to one person at each table.


Each table had a number and the guests
located their names from one of these 
cards and identified their table from there!


Isn't it neat how they prepared all this! 
The tray had a combination of moss and
ivy with sunflowers tucked 
everywhere!


I snapped a shot of this birdcage they were 
using for the gift cards to be dropped into!  
Cute idea!


This is a long shot of the table where the
bridal party sat with a view of the
bar area at the end.


I loved the cake they had and the lovely
pewter bride and groom centerpiece!
The cake stand was awesome too!


Angela also had a "grooms" cake made!
 She plays the violin and he plays the 
guitar, so she had these two metal statues
representing each of them placed on 
the guitar shaped cake!  
Isn't that the cutest!

It was a great day and one
I'm still living over and over
in my mind. 
It's still hard to wrap my
mind around the fact
that 27 years has passed
since our son was born and
where we're at now!  
Dreams do come true!

  17. What a spectacular wedding and reception it must have been, Liz! I loved seeing the photos. The way they combined elegance and simplicity seems totally fresh -- tradition with modern touches. The groom's cake was a work of art! What a charming way to celebrate their musical interests and talents.
