A Hilltop Wedding!

.

IMG_1394

Hello friends!

I think I mentioned last month that our son was getting married on our hilltop in May.  And it was absolutely spectacular! It was a very small intimate wedding with only 18 of us and it was so incredibly special.

Today’s blog post is simply pictures with a few descriptions!  I hope it makes you feel like you were here!  We are still waiting on the professional photographer to get the final wedding pictures to us, so you will be getting another post on the wedding in a couple months!

I was super happy with how the tables came out.  This, and the food, was my part of the Rehearsal!

I smoked brisket (from our beef), cole slaw, grilled okra, wild rice pilaf and bread!  I made three different pies for desert and somehow we don’t have a picture of that!

My daughter did all of the flowers for the wedding and Kayla’s bridal bouquet was especially beautiful I thought.
