The Wedding was Perfect!

Whew!! What a whirlwind! My son got married last was a perfect day, a perfect ceremony, and a perfect couple :)

The wedding was outdoors at a venue called the Shawnessy Barn in Calgary.

It was a very simple, relaxed and intimate ceremony with just the immediate family.

She was a beautiful bride...and my son looked pretty amazing too..

What a wonderful couple!

There was a dinner following. The burlap table runners and chair ties that I sewed  turned out great..

The tables were beautiful... she scattered candles and mason jars filled with flowers on the tables, each with a lantern centrepiece....

The meal was amazing...blackened tuna, lamb shanks, rice pilaf, roasted squash, asparagus! The cater did a fantastic job.

They made dessert themselves ...cookies (she is American, we are Canadian)
OK....if you don't read morris code...the bottom Right hand cookie spells SOS...haha!!

So I added my hand and tried some of these... (they are almost 2" high)

Let me tell you...working with fondant has a steep learning curve! And those little green icing decoration balls...they bounce!! ...all over the kitchen!!! 
Cute though!! to the lake now to relax and recover !!

Hope everyone is having a great summer! And hopefully I will get back to sewing and blogging soon!!
