Fall Wedding . . .

Hello!  Yes, the title says it all... we had a wedding!  My grandson got married on September 9th, to an amazing young woman, and it was just beautiful!   Please forgive all of the photos, my blog is my online journal, and I took a lot of pictures!  Enjoy.

My daughter made this yummy vanilla cake with, raspberry lemon filling.  It was so good!  This is Lisa and Anna adding the flowers to the cake.

Christian, Lisa, Amber, Taylor and Mac, making sure the arch was perfect.

Toasting each other.

A delicious Italian dinner!

From beginning to end, this was a beautiful wedding, held on a beautiful evening.  Lisa was so excited and wanted to help with the cake and all the decorations, and it was so perfect. The wedding was held in my daughters beautiful yard, and it was such a perfect evening for a wedding.  Lisa really wanted to have a beautiful sunset, and Mother Nature did not disappoint... it was gorgeous.  It was a small private wedding, and my daughter, Amber and her husband, James, were wonderful accommodating hosts.  Lisa is from France and her family couldn't be here to celebrate with her, although her sister, Anna, was able to come from Ireland, and I know that made Lisa so happy!   

Christian and Lisa are a beautiful couple, with hopes and dreams for a wonderful future!  It was a fun day, a beautiful wedding, ending with a delicious dinner, and a fun farewell.

See you soon, 
Hugs and Love,
