Scenic Wedding Setting

My husband officiates at many weddings throughout the year. It is impossible for me to attend every one of them, but a few days ago I was able to go to an outdoor wedding and events center for a wedding. It was close to my home so I took my camera and was very happy that I got there early and could get some photos of the land.

This landscaping was so artistic and I got some ideas for things I would like to do on the land surrounding my little house.

A bridge across the little creek was decorated with hanging led-light balls that glowed more as it grew darker.

The wedding was a western theme, with these candle lanterns.

Another view of the picket-fence bridge.

Closer look at that lighted ball.
 
Reception tables
Potting shed
 
From the wedding property could be seen the wheat land with a house roof peeking up over the hedge of trees.
 
 

A look at one corner of the land as the light began to fade.

 

 

One of the children picked this bunch of flowers from my own garden. I thought it looked like the print of the 18th century painting in the frame.

 

Getting adjusted to the routine of home is a challenge after being so off schedule for two months. I still have not unloaded my suitcase because I launched right into homemaking. You probably have read at the Pleasant Times blog that Lillibeth has been in the hospital and is recovering here at home.

Such a serene setting, makes one want to sit, contemplate and have a cup of tea. A nice spot to get away from stress.

Thank you for sharing and glad you were able to go there for a while.

That is a gorgeous venue for a wedding. So peaceful and tranquil.

I also love your pic of the wildflowers next to the framed postcard. You're right, they go together perfectly.

I sure hope Lillibeth is recovering well and feeling better every day.

Hello, So glad that you're home! You're a comfort to so many. The sweet flowers were worth more than ten dozen roses. Thanks for your pictures!
Blessings, Roxy
