Our Wedding: part two

Flowers in my hair. The blackberry lilly seed pods and the dried flower on the left came from mom's garden. My friends Ashley and Carroll (soon to be sister-in-law!) did my hair.

Trae's boutoniere.

A game of statues.

I think the children had as much fun as the adults during the cocktail hour!

 After the ceremony we wandered over to the barn for drinks and hors d'oeuvres. It was nice to have time to mingle while it was still daylight. And the children had space (and energy!)  to run to their hearts' content.

Trae popped the champagne. Our brother-in-law Tommy Spake made the glasses we drank from, on the table on the left.

The cakes, made by our friend Julia in Sewanee, were amazing. We actually had a slice of the white rosemary cake last night, from some we saved in the freezer. 

Even a few of the youngest stayed up to dance til the very end!

At one point, I hopped up with the band and fiddled a tune with them!

The dancing was the best part. We had an old time string band from Birmingham, and they kept us on our toes til nearly midnight!

The barn was completely transformed. Sheets and lights were hung from the ceiling. The whole place ran on a generator. Just months ago, this place housed tractors, firewood and copperheads.

Tonight, Trae and I leave for our honeymoon! Thanks to everyone who helped us make this trip possible (we used a honeymoon registry, which worked great!). Our first stop is Paris. We'll keep you posted here on the blog!
