My youngest nephew got married on Saturday. That's his older brother behind him, serving as his best man. The groom wore his typical casual smile while his brother took his job very seriously!
His bride, escorted by her dad, ethereal in her DIY flapper style gown.
The groom thought so, too.
This lovely wedding is proof that a romantic affair (weather permitting) doesn't have to break the bank. The tables were set with assorted clear medicine bottles, wine glasses, teacups with flowers and candles arranged within. Paper lanterns and twinkle lights adorned the trees. Dinner was assorted upscale barbecue on small plates collected at tag sales. Casual and comfortable was the theme of the day. The bride's attendants wore color coordinated dresses of differing styles and lengths and carried home made bouquets. The groom's mother made the boutonnieres. The bride bought her dress off the rack and added the fringed straps herself. The floral arch was rented as was the antique bird cage that held the wedding cards. Instead of a traditional wedding cake, the bride and groom opted for cake pops and ice cream. The day hovered around a perfect 80 degrees with low humidity just as if it was ordered and paid for.
