A Cottage Garden Wedding, a Graduation, tis the season!

Good Morning Bloggy Friends,
Hubby and I were busy this weekend with a wedding and high school graduation.
And what a beautiful wedding it was!  
The trellis is the name of the wedding site and it truly was a perfect setting!
Designed and built by two sisters just 3 years ago. 

As you enter, this path leads you to the gardens. 



The bride and groom were so lucky!  It rained all day long and about 2 hours before the 6:00 ceremony the sun came out and shined gloriously.

There were beautiful urns overflowing with flowers.

Fountains everywhere.

And angels

A place to rest and take in the view. 

And this delightful cottage where the bride and her wedding party set up.  The bride's parents are good friends of ours.

The bride was simply stunning!  I absolutely loved her gorgeous dress, she looked like an angel herself!

The sister of the bride looked smashing in this gorgeous blue gown!

And the proud papa escorting his beautiful daughter down the aisle.

She has the perfect figure for this style of gown .

There is the groom off to the side.  A simply adorable couple!

A view of the cottage.

The cherubs were just so charming!
After the ceremony they held their reception at a beautiful country club.
Now I need to back track to Friday night when my nephew Justin graduated from high school. 

Justin is my sister Susie's oldest child.  Justin graduated with honors and is pictured here with his sister Kristen.
Yah Justin, were proud of you!

His proud mom my sister Susie pictured with her youngest child Chloe and little miss Addison.

Now aren't these two cousins cute together!

Chloe  turned 2 in April and Addison is 7 months.  As Addison gets older they will probably get into a bit of mischief together.
Addison is crawling now and oh is she ever raring to go! 
I keep telling my daughter, babyproof everything you can think of!
Well that's about it for us....how was your weekend?
We finally have some glorious spring weather and boy am I loving it!
And I love hearing from you all!



  1. Awwww, those baby cousins are so cute! Congrats to Justin! That wedding site is so beautiful, so perfect. I would like to get married there too, lol, but too bad I am already married. I love the urns and all the other garden structures. The sisters did a great job decorating the garden...Christine

  2. Gosh you grow pretty girls around there! Must be the air and water!

    Lovely, lovely garden setting and the bride and her sis in the blue dress look great.

    What a wonderful memory for all. Even me, way out here.

  3. What an amazing way to spend the weekend. How romantic was that wedding setting? Wow!

    Love the babies. Congrats to all.

  4. What a wonderful way to begin my day! Weddings and graduations are Spring's magic. I agree, the bride's gown was perfection, bridesmaid's gown too. Babies, angels, cottages .... all of it perfect.

  5. You had a full and fun weekend. Such a pretty setting for a wedding. Thanks for sharing it all with us.

  6. How lucky that the rain stopped in time. It is a fabulous place for a wedding. You sure did have a busy weekend.
    The photos make me want to go out in my wet garden and clean some stuff up. Maybe...after my coffee.

  7. Hi there. You had a busy weekend too!
    The bride's gown is STUNNING! She is beautiful!
    And what a wonderful place to get married. So pretty! Wouldn't that be fun to do? Buy a piece of property like that and host weddings. How fun would that be?
    Miss you Girl! HUGS!

  8. Looks like a fun weekend Cindy! The wedding was beautiful and the girls are so cute together. We're waiting for spring to return here in Philly:@)

  14. Lovely spot for a wedding, so blissful and gorgeous!

    Congrats to Justin for graduating with honors!

    The cousins are adorable together and you're right, they will probably find some mischief to get into, but they will probably also be there for each other for a lifetime. My cousin and I are just nine days apart. We were best friends growing up, then separated by many miles in our 20s, now we've been back together for ten years and I couldn't imagine my life without her.

    Thanks for sharing such wonderful family and friends memories with us, this is what it's all about — time shared with those we love.


  15. The wedding looks beautiful, bride, groom and party. You had a great busy weekend I can see! Congrats on the nephew and the little cousins are totally adorable! Have a nice week.

  16. Now THAT's what I call a fairytale wedding! Gorgeous! Gardens like that in Wisconsin? Really? You must live in a different Wisconsin than I do. Not flower season here yet - still waiting on the lilacs to bloom. Congrats to your nephew! Ahhhh....what a wonderful time of life...The whole world ahead of you just waiting to see what you will do with it. Thanks so much for sharing, Cindy!

    Congratutaltions to the bride and groom!
    \Congratulations to Justin too!

  19. What a beautiful bride and gorgeous dress! Such a pretty place to get married! Your little granddaughter is such a cutie pie! I always suggest to new moms...get down on the knees, or even the tummy, to see the house from your child's point of view. And then childproof by looking up to see what she sees and what she can reach and grab.

  20. Gorgeous wedding. I will have to show this to Xanti.

    Congratulations to Justin!

    Loved the baby pictures. Cheered me up on this dreary day!
