My daughter and I spent this morning making a delightfully smooth punch for the wedding reception. Then we drove to town and decorated the reception hall and the sanctuary at the church. This is the church she was born in, baptized in, professed her faith in, directed music in, and where she and her fiance` currently lead the music.
The reception will be tended to by older women in the church who’ve watched her grow up, friends, and her Nanny Carol and cousins.
The wedding cake layers were baked and her dress was hemmed by Mrs. M. B., who also made the dress for her first birthday party.
The wedding cake is being decorated by Mrs. T.F., who has known her since she was a chubby-cheeked infant. She worked for Mrs. T.F. in her cake shop several years ago.
For the “Desserts Reception”, cousin Katy Bug is making Chocolate Mousse Cups. Our close friend, Debbie, is bringing Philly Delights from Mississippi.
Ladies of the church are making fruit trays, carrot cake, and the Doberge groom’s cake; and a man in the church is making Boclava.
Oh, she and I made the tropical fruit ring that will float in the punch bowl. It’s so beautiful!
Yes, indeed, this is going to be one heck of a “Desserts Reception”!
Here’s your sneak peek. I don’t have her permission, so I hope she doesn’t mind. If she does, I’ll have to “unpublish” this post! I hope I’m not breaking some big rule by doing this.
Here’s the welcome table. Those are not pennies–they are lavender stones . . .
Here’s the happy couple after a long, hard day. She will kill me when she sees this on here because she had on ZERO makeup! She was about to leave to go get ready for the “Bridemaids’ Dinner” as opposed to a bachelorette party.
These lavendar Jelly Belly beans are the wedding favors. Oh, and no rice or bird seed for this evening wedding. We’ll see them off to their honey moon car with good, old fashioned *sparklers*!!!!! In all colors!
Thanks for sharing in this with us. I hope to have more photos for you this weekend of the great event. The wedding is Saturday night. Please pray for us all!
