The wedding was amazing and beautiful, the weather was perfect.....everything was relaxed, casual and fun with a laid back soundtrack and an easy going pace. Richard and I had both our families there, our parents, kids, and siblings as well as a few very close friends that might as well be family. The setting was on the river with orange and gold leaves still on the trees and the water a deep blue/gray/green in the background. We decorated with daisies and pumpkins, the bouquets looked like they were picked in a field of wildflowers. The colors were orange and pale aqua and yellow and chocolate brown. It was so pretty and informal. There were even little tiny creatures (spiders maybe?) trailing little threads of gossamer through the air all over the place. That sounds kind of disgusting but it looked so pretty and magical lol. Just little sparkling threads of silk floating on the air whenever you looked toward the sun. It was like fairy guests LOL. Ok, maybe I'm romanticizing it a bit....but it was really neat. We don't have any photos back yet....I'll post some when we do. We went to Asheville for our honeymoon, we stayed at the Residences of Biltmore, a super nice hotel right at the gates....if you get a chance to go to Asheville, NC, I highly recommend it. It had a separate kitchen with full sizes stainless steel appliances and granite countertops....a living room with an awesome fireplace a separate bedroom, huge bathroom with a two person shower and jacuzzi tub. So very romantic :).
