I had an uneasy feeling all this past week, I thought there was another wedding coming sometime in October, but there was nothing written on any of our calendars. It turns out, this bride was apprenticing (or is it interning?) at my dentist's office back in April and had assisted in putting yet another crown in my noggin. While waiting for the Novacaine to take effect, the dentist had left the room to do whatever dentists do when they leave you alone to go numb, so me being nosy, like usual, struck up a conversation with the young lady intern. During our chat I learned she was to be married this October. They had almost all of their plans figured out except where to go for photography after the ceremony. You know what happened next; yup, I volunteered our yard to her if she was interested, gave her my phone number and said if she'd like to stop out sometime and have a look, just let me know.
I never heard from her, so it slipped my mind. Then one day a few months later, she called me and asked if they could come see the yard sometime that weekend. I agreed but told her we may not be home depending on when they came, and we weren't...we were out canoeing that day, but Dave was home. He took them through the gardens and they both thought it would be a nice place for pictures. But Dave didn't take a phone number and didn't recall them saying when the wedding was, either. I know, we're so organized around here.
Well, thank goodness she called on her wedding day, and we were able to be home in time for the photo shoot. In contrast to the rainy Friday wedding the day before, Saturday was sunny with odd passing showers and much cooler temperatures in the low 50's.
They arrived in style, my goodness!, much too fancy a vehicle for our humble abode:
The Serious Shot
The Not So Serious Shot
A few shots from the Formal Garden
and then........time to go.........
Off they go......
Into the sunset of their new life together.
What a beautiful bride!
As far as I know, this should be the last wedding party of the year for us. Thank goodness they all made it here before the frost did.
Now I guess I can get to work clearing the garden for winter......Karen
