and away we go!


Saturday launched  the Fall wedding Season.  One wedding started off with a ceremony at Larz Anderson Park on the slope of a hill.  The aisle was an alle of trees leading up to a stairway to a small terrace attached to nothing.  Showers were forecast. The bride was adamant that she would be married outdoors in this lovely spot.  According to the Park Ranger this morning when I went to take down the tree decorations, the sun burst forth just as the ceremony started.  It was pouring an hour later.



Then, a small wedding at the Cambridge Brewing Company.  That's where the couple met and it was a perfect venue for them.  She asked for a wildflower bouquet in peach, yellow and light orange.


Gillian came  back to help.  Still wobbly with the new staff and the scheduling; so grateful... that's GRATEFUL for her help.  Her plate is full now with an internship at the MFA, studying for the GRE and choosing Graduate programs.


I went to Maine last week to find silver containers for a magical wedding we're doing next Sunday. You'd think I'd photograph the plants at Snug Harbor in Kennebunkport, but no:  the dog and the birds.





 And today, I was at the Cambridge Antique Market to find the last pieces for said wedding.  I'm all set now.  Just waiting for the gorgeous ribbon to arrive.

Thanks, Jane! " God, weddings" is just about it. Looking forward to knee surgery at the end of December. That hill was a killer!

Miss Marlowe - more kisses!

Agree. The wrapped trees are very sweet. Were guests seated up on the terrace? What a great setting!

LOVE the tree wraps. Will probably steal that for one of our May weddings. :D And what Jane said, that bouquet is seriously drop dead! Miss you.

Steve - have no idea where the guests were going to be. Some guy with a cane was being transported down the hill in a golf cart.. it was all slope except for on the 'terrace'. Maybe they all gathered there?

Ma'me Peicha - steal away!xoxo

Kristina- I'm going to write you an email back!
If only there had been grazing animals at the park everything would have been perfect.
