Another beautiful outdoor wedding

This is the wedding we went to yesterday. It was a hot and humid day with storms before and after the wedding. The wedding had a theme of birds.
It was held at this beautiful house in the back yard.
This is the first thing you saw. Thought this was so funny. My daughter says that her doctor has this sign but it says "if your cell phone rings".

Sorry you have to stand on your head here. I swear it looked like they just cut this tree down and stripped the branches. That's Mr. Cozy.
See the top left corner. They called this the airplane style bathroom.....for the men.
The pool house
One of the fish ponds. I was in awe of this back yard.
The pool with a bunch of ducks.
A amazing train set-up.

A blimp flew over......not planned.
The couple got engaged in Cinderella's Castle at Disney. Cutest little cross stitch picture.
Pictures of relatives that passed, their engagement and photos of the couple growing up.
Stand on your head again. This was so neat. It was their wedding tree. They had an ink pad next to it. You were to put your thumb print on a branch and sign your name. Wish I would have taken an after picture. It really looked nice with all the green thumbs looking like leaves.
Table numbers and decorations.
Guess who sat here.
Pictures of the couple dating.
The menu. Wish I could print like that.
The seating arrangements. This was the wedding of my BFF's son. Her name is on the left and mine on the right. Loved this banner idea.The bird cage arrangement. The colors were a hot pink and brown......so pretty.
This banner was made from cloth and had pictures clothespinned on. We helped put this up twice. (Because of sprinkles) A corn hole game in the background with a bird painted on......the other one had a bird on it as well.
The picture banner up close and a picture of my friends family.
This is the second recent wedding where I have seen this sign........
Before the wedding......and yes those are rose petals.
And moving forward to the kiss.
My friend and her hubby.

My friend wanted a picture of their whole family. Two of the DIL's weren't in the wedding so weren't in the wedding pictures. The photographer saw us taking the picture and then came up and took one with her camera. I hope she can crop out the stuff on the table.
I just loved the wedding, except for the heat. I loved all the little details that the bride added to make the wedding special. I love seeing how weddings are all done so differently these days. Another interesting thing was......the groom side had his siblings and the brides her siblings. Her brother was the man of honor. It was different but nice.
This should be it for weddings for awhile. Two week-ends and two weddings.......sweet.

Debby, That is a really nice wedding. I don't think things have to be all posh. My granddaughter Lynzie called me Friday morning and said she got engaged Thursday night. It was her 22nd birthday. I was happy for her and cried too. I am going to tell her about this pretty wedding:):) Smiles, Susie

I love outdoors weddings. I find that every wedding I've been to have something unique. It's amazing seeing all the creativity that is put into the decors. Great fun.

It looks like a lot of fun. Too bad it was so hot and humid.
Hugs, JB

What a beautiful wedding. I love the theme and you can tell they are very connected to family and friends. Lovely. Too bad it was so hot. There is not much good about a hot sticky day but it looks like the wedding outshone the heat factor. xo Diana

Hi Debby,
Ince my daughter is engaged and plans on a wedding in 2014, I'm seeing some much ideas. Not sure if she will like them.
Yes, you have a few days to finish your banner and get it in the mail! I'm just an early bird!
Like you new photo!
Thank you for your prayers too!
Warmly,
deb

Happy wedding photos....I adore the theme and all the details that were put into this pretty wedding. And how lucky to have the moisture hold off! 'Tis Kismet.

I liked the sign about misbehaved children/espresso/puppies! :)

Thanks for sharing these pictures. I imagine the lucky couple has flown the 'nest' for a honeymoon!

Hugs
