Ahhh, the month of May. Full of back-to-back birthdays, anniversaries, baby showers and, of course, weddings. Mmmm. This past Saturday was no exception. Ben’s cousin Scott joined in holy matrimony with Caren and the lovely couple became Mr. & Mrs. Innes. Now, to be honest the day started out cold and ugly with unwanted rain showers. Big fat rain drops threatened to ruin perfectly-done curls and dry-cleaned suits all around. Brides ran to-and-fro, telling themselves that it was the happiest day of their lives but still having to squint from blustery winds. It was kind of a sad sight.
Funny thing is that when Scott and Caren came out to be greeted, they didn’t have to go through any of that nonsense. Mr. Sun was back and all the clouds finally behaved. The day for Scott and Caren was, simply put, perfect.
Isn’t Caren beautiful! She was stunning in her dress (which fit her like a GLOVE). I adore this picture with the wind billowing up under her gown and her laugh…all so natural.
Scott and Caren’s reception followed at 7 pm. When Ben and I walked into her parent’s backyard, we were greeted with rich tones of purple, green, blue and silver. It was absolutely beautiful! The peacock feather accents had just the right touch of elegance while the cotton candy treats made things fun. There was an old-fashioned ambiance with children running around in purple and grown ups stuffing their faces with sugar-clouds. But I especially loved the details. Ohh, the amount of detail that went into this evening was spectacular! Everything from the ferris-wheel picture frame to the feathers to the antique-looking chest on display looked amazing and none of it was coincidental. It was all a sign of good planning.
And of course the car-decorating soon followed. Austin topped it off with a (cotton candy) cone and actual cotton candy (all in the most literal sense) until it was later removed by someone who found it not-so amusing. But another cone soon found its way back up :)
I wish Caren and Scott the very best in their marriage-voyage and hope they have oodles of fun in Disneyland!!! That’s where they went on their honey moon…cute huh :)
