Thank you all so much for all the lovely wishes you’ve sent my way in the last week. Our wedding last Saturday was one of the most wonderful and fun events I’ve ever attended in my life and I feel so fortunate being able to say that (truly, it was everything I had hoped for). It was a simple ceremony (click that link if you want to read our vows), followed by a potluck. People brought amazing dishes to share and I served the cakes I had made.
There wasn’t a whole lot of food in jars at the wedding (I did bring an assortment of jams/chutneys for people to take home if they so desired). However, I had to work jars into the day and so used varying sizes of canning/jelly jars to house live herb plants. These were the centerpieces and favors and I loved how they ended up looking, clustered on the butcher paper-covered tables. I spent a large chunk of the summer searching out the jars we used, and I was so delighted that they worked out so nicely.
Scott and I are now driving around Vermont and New York State, really enjoying our honeymoon. We’ve visited Bennington Pottery, The Vermont Country Store and the tallest man-made structure in Vermont. Tomorrow we head to King Arther Flour and a museum/farm. I am totally delighted by life right now.
