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.

Congratulations, Mark & Jess!
We, at The Morning Star, wish the wedding couple all the best!
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!
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.

Congratulations to Alex and Emmalie!
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.

To all of our guests and all of the wonderful mothers out there – especially mine! – Happy Mother’s Day!
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.
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!
Have a lovely weekend, everyone! If I get a chance, I’ll post a recipe tomorrow or Sunday.
I made this autumn-themed boutonniere with burnt orange mums from my garden and a Golden Mimi spray rose. Burnt orange and gold is a beautiful color combination for Fall florals.
I hope that you will stop by my new blog, Morning Star Weddings, to check out the photos and wedding planning tips. While there might be a small overlap between the two blogs, I will try not to duplicate photos between the two too often. A Taste of Morning will continue to have a range of topics from food to gardening to local events and general photography, whereas Morning Star Weddings will focus on our wedding services and wedding planning ideas … oh, yes, and lots of photos!
Thanks for reading A Taste of Morning! Have a great day!
One of the weddings that we had at the Bed & Breakfast recently was actually a surprise – for the guests, that is. The bride and groom had invited everyone to a 1920’s-themed cocktail party and asked the guests to dress appropriately, but made no mention of a wedding on the invitations. About 45 minutes into the party, the groom called for everyone’s attention and thanked the surprised party goers for coming to the wedding and sharing in the special day. As you can imagine, the announcement that the ceremony was about to begin was of course was met by cries of delight. What a fun and unique wedding! We at The Morning Star wish Patrick and Jo great joy together!
