Luca & Lilly's wedding...

On Sunday, of last week, my friend Anna and I decorated a tent and did flower arrangements, in preparation for her son's wedding. This was to host the rehearsal party and the brunch served on the day of the wedding, before the ceremony. I took pictures so we could remember NEVER to do this again. The guys put up the tent, forgetting to put the cross bar in at the top, so a little wind picked up and... we started all over again, did I mention it was 30Cdegrees.

We worried about rain the whole week, and in the end we had a lovely sunny day.  I didn't get a picture of the bride and groom together, not sure what happened to my camera.  Batteries probably.

Good heavens, what you did was simply spectacular, dear Irene. The flowers, the tables ... I particularly love the roses underneath the stems with bows affixed. So simple and elegant. The tent was stunning ... a chandelier!!!! So gorgeous. Congratulations to Luca and Lilly on their marriage and to you and your lovely friend for pulling it off with such panache.

You did a great job with those bouquets! Yes, you need a reminder not to do this much work again, LOL.

Love the's the Ambassador in Caledon. I LOVE that venue, hopefully one day my daughter will have her wedding there. I've been there a few times already for weddings.
Nice job with the decorations at the home...very nice. Glad it turned out to be a nice day.

Okay, can we talk?
These photos are wonderful. I LOVE what you guys did with that tent! Never do it again!!
I hope the ceremony was as beautiful as the venue. Otherwise, next time just go decorate and leave. In fact, take the bunny and leave it there, too.

Is this wrong?

Great photo of the mom and groom.
