A Lavender Wedding

The Big Day is so close, and I’m so excited! Everything is done and ready to go. I can’t wait to see all of my friends and family and finally marry that crazy Fellow who’s put up with me for nearly 6 years.

In the mean time, I thought I’d share some sweet details from my brother’s wedding. He got married September 23rd to his high school sweetheart. They tied the knot in a simple rustic wedding at their new farm.

The girls got ready in my old room at my parents before arriving at the ceremony in the bed of an antique pickup truck. The girls were in varying shades of grey/lavender  neutrals, and each of the guys wore a brand-new straw cowboy hat.

The bride wanted all of her nieces and nephews involved, so the little flower girls carried child-sized cowboy hats full of flower petals, and then handed the hats off to their respective partners, so all the men and boys were wearing hats. It was super cute!

This cracked me up. My mother sent me up to my brother’s bedroom for something, and I found one of the flower girl dress hanging from this antler mount.

My big responsibility was the bride and groom’s wedding pie. They wanted a braided lattice work pie for them to cut. Three pounds of apples later, I was quite pleased with the result. I got a big “thumbs up” from the groom, who, in keeping true to his typical antics, cut the pie with his pocket knife!
