It had been a whirlwind week leading up to Saturday as the bridal couple had chosen to do most of the wedding prep themselves. We loaded jelly beans into organza bags and tied them to wine decanters for guest favours late one night. I just couldn't resist taking a picture of the pile of little bags; they looked so pretty.
We folded, stacked, printed, tested sound equipment, cut fruit and cheeses, set up tables in the marquis tent, made up the place cards, set battery powered candles in little white paper bags and small pillar candles in sand in mason jars (a M.S. touch that worked so well). We laughed and cried over the course of the week and stayed up until the wee hours of the morning too many nights!
All the bridal party and many of their friends showed up and worked really hard the night of the rehearsal and the morning of the wedding to be sure everything was perfect for the outdoor reception. Here are the parents and sister of the groom at the rehearsal night BBQ at their farm (also the reception site).

I will close for today and when I get more photos I will post a few - but not too many to bore you!
Till next time then, keep stitching!
