Anna, our gracious and very talented hostess (and a techie as well) got quite creative with the decorations:
A 'Congrats' sign made with cable:
Lovely techie lights with tea light candles, mason jars and cables:
So, of course, everyone thought pretending to talk on the phones would make funny pictures. Ah, techies and their humor.
Some lovely ladies--That's Doodlebug on the left, Margaret (a bridesmaid, good friend and one of the sweetest people you would ever hope to meet), Birdie, and Mackenzie (Birdie's BFF since they were three years old):
That's Anna (hostess, bridesmaid and truly wonderful person), Birdie, Caleb (Anna's hubby and all 'round great guy), and my wonderful soon-to-be-SIL.
And that is Miss Lola being held by Birdie. She is the adorable daughter of our host and hostess of the evening.
There were shots---
And an interesting final shot series:
Yep, gotta love techies!
One of my favorite things about the lovelies getting married is getting to know their friends even better. Once the nest empties out, you hear about their friends and you even meet some. But you don't always get to know them closely like you did when your kids were growing up. During wedding preparations, you are granted this most wonderful opportunity.
I can honestly say that my girls have made marvelous choices in friends. They are fun, funny, kind, compassionate, caring, smart, involved young people whom I am privileged to know. If these folks are any indication of our future, I am not worried.
Well, except for that whole humor thing....
Thirteen days to the wedding! Stay tuned!
