Formal Floral

We had a lovely wedding at the Bed & Breakfast yesterday. Amazingly, we had a break in the rain and the sun came out for the wedding. This, however, is a picture that I took indoors while it was dark and rainy out.

A Fragrant Rose

Working in the garden this morning, I was so pleased with all of the lovely fragrance lofting through the air.

“Memorial Day” rose, is just on of my fragrant roses. Can’t you almost see it dripping with perfume-scent?

Have a lovely evening!

Sunflowers for A Winter Wedding

We hosted a warm and happy wedding at The Morning Star yesterday. Despite the gray skies, the couple’s choice of sunflowers for a wedding theme made everything glow, and with the fire burning it was cozy and warm inside.

In addition to our regular menu, we offered a special Mother’s Day Breakfast this morning. The rain even held off, so that we could serve breakfast on the porch.

Morning Star Weddings

We had another beautiful wedding yesterday. It was sunny and 75 degrees out – perfect for a garden wedding, despite still officially being winter. (This morning it is 32 degrees, so we got lucky – again!) The bride and groom chose yellow, white, gray and black as their colors – which was an elegant, yet sunny and cheerful theme. I didn’t have a moment to take pictures yesterday, but here is a photo that I took this morning of one of the gorgeous Gold Strike roses that we used for the arrangements. Have a lovely day!

Gallery Page

In honor of Valentine’s Day, I just published a gallery of photos from some of the weddings that we have had the honor of hosting at The Morning Star. Unfortunately, I don’t have photos from all of the weddings, but I hope that you enjoy the images that we do have. Since most of our weddings are garden weddings, the gallery includes lots of garden photos.

Golden Moment

This morning, while waiting for muffins to come out of the oven and guests to come downstairs for breakfast, I decided to take advantage of a little free time to take photos of a mocktail for Morning Star Weddings – my other blog. The only trouble – I also had to wait for the sun to come up and get high enough in the morning sky so that I could get enough light for my photos. So I got all set up and played around with practice shots while waiting. This is one that I took of flowers that I was using as background filler. I was happy that it turned out because I really liked the contrast of materials. Have a lovely day!
