More Norfolk Nuptials

Last weekend we gathered on the banks of the Elizabeth River to celebrate a friend's wedding. Let me tell you, it was hot, hot, hot in the bright sunshine and 95 degree weather (I downed about 8 glasses of lemonade)...but the wedding was beautiful. The bride and groom radiated happiness in spite of the heat. The wedding had gorgeous flowers, great live music, delicious food (the fried green tomatoes were the best), and lovely little herb favors. Their thoughtful planning was evident before, during, and after the ceremony. Don't you just love to discover a drink with your name on it?! I took a few photos to capture the day with the pocket point and shoot. Weddings are such joyous occasions!

They had mason jars on their invite and throughout the day, so another friend and I decided to give her a mason themed gift basket. We included a delicious cookie mix jar, homemade strawberry jam, and homemade plum preserves. I also went vintage hunting and found two beautiful fabric napkins to include in our basket. Love vintage linens! I also made a sweet little card to accompany the basket. It doesn't really match, but I made the card before I decided on the basket colors/contents. Hopefully they will enjoy the basket's sweet treats as they nest and establish their home.
