More on this week’s photo challenge …
Have a lovely weekend!
I am excited to be able to share with you photos from a wedding that we hosted back in March. The wedding couple and photographer were incredibly gracious and gave me permission to use their photos. There were so many great photographs that it was difficult to select which ones to use, but I tried to choose ones that showed the joyousness of the day.

Thank you to Casie and Chris for having your wedding at The Morning Star. May you be tremendously happy together! And thank you Ali for the great photos!
Have a lovely day, everyone!
We had a beautiful garden wedding at The Morning Star this afternoon. The bride and groom chose butterflies for their theme and their family and friends did a job wonderful carrying the theme throughout the decorations. Even mother nature cooperated and provided a few living butterflies. Congratulations and warmest wishes to the happy couple!
We could not possibly have a more beautiful day than today for the bridal shower that we are hosting this afternoon. How splendid to be able to sit on the porch and enjoy the garden during the party!
Have a lovely day!
These are the flowers that I am using for a wedding this afternoon. They’re just gorgeous! I might not have time to photograph them again once they are tied off for the bouquet and placed on the cake. So I wanted to make sure that I got some photos this morning. The wedding is going to be lovely. It is so nice to be a part of such an important occasion.
Romantic, pink bleeding hearts …

We had another beautiful wedding yesterday. It was sunny and 75 degrees out – perfect for a garden wedding, despite still officially being winter. (This morning it is 32 degrees, so we got lucky – again!) The bride and groom chose yellow, white, gray and black as their colors – which was an elegant, yet sunny and cheerful theme. I didn’t have a moment to take pictures yesterday, but here is a photo that I took this morning of one of the gorgeous Gold Strike roses that we used for the arrangements. Have a lovely day!
