Hope this Wednesday finds you well.
Today is "Best Friends Day" and I would
like to wish ALL my friends near and
far a good day!
I love each of you and couldn't get
along without you!
Well, last Saturday was a big day
for a special lady and her family.
Ken and I were invited to this
lovely venue for her wedding!
This is the Thompson Barn, it
has changed drastically over
the last 50 +++ years.
Our lovely city has turned it
into the MOST sought after
venue for weddings in the city.
Brides must reserve it a year in
advance in order to secure it for
their big day!
Upon arrival guests were greeted
with the chalkboard and picture
table. Loved the pictures!
This would be the inside of the
barn. The restoration work is
Chairs were set up for the ceremony
on the second floor of the barn.
I'm going to call the theme for this
wedding feminine with a rustic touch
here and there. This beautiful wreath
was hanging on the doors in the front.
During the cocktail hour and while
other pictures were being taken,
ceremony area turned into the
dining and dancing area.
this was our table. Pretty glass
bowl with floating candles and
greenery. If you look closely
or biggie the pic, you will see
the small carved gourds by the
champagne flutes. The groom's
mother worked in Peru for four
years and knows the couple who
carved them. Each one has a
ribbon with the date and their
names on it.
Here is the beautiful bride with her
family. Dad, Mom and brother.
Their first dance as husband
A beautiful cake. I love the topper,
it was cut out of wood!
The bride and groom are outdoors
people( ie: hunting, fishing etc.) so
I thought it was a fitting topper for
When trying to figure out their
gift, I ran into a wall...everything
on their registry was already
purchased and I am not too hep
on getting something from there
anyway. Soo after a discussion
with my friend, the Mother of the
bride I decide to make another jar.
I made a Honeymoon jar. I heard
from the bride the next day "we
loved your gift!"
A wedding selfie.
It was a beautiful evening
for a lovely couple. We
wish them many years
Garage sales are all over the
place and I have been to a
few as soon as I can I will
post pics of my treasures.
