Ahhh... a wedding!

Aren't weddings fun?

Being six months away from my own daughter's gala affair, I find myself eagerly awaiting the various weddings we have been invited to this fall. We are of the age where all our friends' children are getting married. It is a fun time of life.

Yesterday Bob and I attended the wedding of his secretary's daughter. They were married in Eldon, in a church that their family helped build many years ago. There was a stained glass window with the family name on it. The bride had six attendents and two candlelighters and a flower girl who refused to wear her shoes.

The colors were black and white and gold. Very striking and classy. The flowers were long stemmed calla lilies and stargazer lilies. The music was incredible, with two of the finest singers I have heard in a long while. It is amazing how the music can make or break the ceremony.

The reception was back in Jefferson City at the Eagles. I didn't think the location was very romantic until I saw the decorations and how much that does for a place! The tables were covered with white table cloths and black overlays. There were tall vases of black and white rocks and calla lilies scattered around. There were various sizes of cocktail glasses filled with black and white glass pieces and floating candles. Posh!

The food was good and the cake soooo pretty! We danced away the night and had a great time!

I am looking for all kinds of things to do at Ashley's wedding so pass on your favorite wedding tips....
