It Was a Sunny Day

It was a Sunny Day and the perfect day for a garden wedding... which is exactly what we had.
My sweet man's good, good friend Mr. Ray and his bride were married on the back deck of their new house... As our gift to them, we did what Nate and I have done together so many times before - we threw a party. Nate on food, me on flowers and decorations.

The bride loves Monet and we settled on a Blue, White and Yellow color pallet for the garden nuptials and reception.

11 years ago this coming Saturday Nathan and I said our own "I do's" and this blue and white tea pot was his 1 year anniversary gift to me. I still love it!

More flowers and a touch of humor. The bride dressed up these flower pot people as a bride and groom, since it was a "garden wedding" after all.

A perfect shady spot.

Bread and roses.

The cake. We didn't make it - only embellished it with a little fruit.

The veggies and the best dip ever.
I ate way tooo much!

Another touch of "garden wedding"
humor - It was blue and it was thematic!

The best kabobs. Again, I ate too much. I could eat these every day I think....

Miles was never seen without a piece of watermelon in his hand all day.

The happy couple, both widowed, both found love again... I think her smile says it all!


  1. Very sweet. These kind of wedding are my favorite. I think we only spend $3,000 on our wedding, and that included everything but our rings. Anyway, what I really wanted to say was that the little pots bride and groom was too cute!

  2. Very sweet!! So nice of you to do that for them.

  3. Lovely blog. Lovely post. Lovely couple!


  4. That looks like the most wonderful day. If I could do my wedding over, that would be it:))))

  5. So sweet of you to throw the party! Everything is beautiful! I loved the "happy ending" to your post!

  6. Gorgeous, beautifully decorated, food to die for:) Congratulations on your upcoming anniversary as well:) Rachael

  7. Oh Jerusalem, it's all so beautiful! Love the blue and white theme, the food, everything. They are so lucky to have friends like you. Yes the brides face tells it all.

  16. Last Saturday was a blast, even though we worked oursevles to the limit. The pictures you posted were beautiful and I'll remember that day forever, and will probably cry everytime.

    Looking forward to the girls pedicure day, we deserve the pampering.
