Best Friend's Wedding

We had a very busy weekend.  It was Jess' best friend's wedding, and we were all trying to get ready for the special day.  Jess and Nel were bridesmaids in the wedding, as the bride is like a sister to them both.   Jess baked about 50 sugar cookies for the reception, and she spent so much time preparing them.  Nel thought of the design to put on top of each cookie, and they were scrumptious.






The bridesmaid's flower bouquets were the most unusual arrangement of flowers that I've seen.  They were so pretty, and the colors went well with their grey dresses.








It was a lovely wedding, and I wish the bride and groom many years of tenderness together.   Jess and Nel celebrated the night away, and were very honored to share this special day with their friend.

Those heart-shaped cookies are so pretty and it was such a thoughtful idea to prepare them for the reception. Gorgeous photos and the choice of brightly coloured flowers, as you say, was perfect with the grey dresses. I hope you and your family are all well!

Congratulations to the bride and groom. Those biscuits are yummy and how pretty is the design, so perfect for a wedding. How clever are the girls. And that bouquet is beautiful with different blooms of the same colour. The grils look stunning in their bridesmaid gown.
Thank you dear Sheri for dropping by, you are so kind and sweet. I need to get my act together and post on my blog regularly.
Hope you have a good week.

Hugs,

Good morning sweetest Sheri! I LOVE THE GREY DRESSES! And the white decorated cookies are perfect to go with that color. The flowers too! June is such a great time for weddings.

Are you enjoying your summer? I SO AM! Oh the love of summer, I'll never forget Carmel; I am still enjoying it in my memory.

Hugs to you all my dear! Anita

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

My dearest Sheri, I just saw that you went to my blog! I am so happy to hear that you are watching my IG photos. Oh the time I had in Carmel AND my time back here is so special. Not a day goes by that I don't remember something about our trip and the BEACH. That water was what I needed. And now being at home for a while from work, what FREEDOM to play! The sunshine is exceptional, the days are long and full of opportunity for photos and POETRY. I wrote a new poem yesterday that really was more of an exercise in a new style for me. Oh the fun.

More photos to come my friend! Love, Anita

Happy Wednesday Dear Sheri!
What a pleasant treat to see such beauty on your lovely blog this morning! Your girls are beautiful in their dresses and the countryside wedding looks charming. The Wedding Bouquet was delightful with the choice and colors of the flowers. I was admiring the detail on those cookies, they were precise and delicate- a gift in themselves.
I can see it was truly a memorable day and I am wishing the newly weds years of joy.
Love,
Jemma

Jess said...

The girls look lovely and the flowers are breathtaking! How lovely that Jess made those pretty biscuits for her friend, they look delicious!

Doreen@househoneys said...

I can certainly see how those beautiful, colorful flowers would compliment the girls gorgeous dresses. (When I got married nearly 32 years ago, my bridesmaids had the same color.)

Those cookies look Delish, and what a sweet gift for the bride!

Beatrice Euphemie said...

Your girls are so lovely in their beautiful grey dresses! The cookies turned out perfect for a day celebrating true love, and the flowers are so pretty and just the right colors against the grey. It looks like the weather was perfect, too! Best wishes and congratulations to the new couple! xo Karen

Sheri, The girls look so pretty and such an honor for Jess to be in the wedding. Those flowers are gorgeous ~ love that color! Frosted cookies aren't as easy to create as one might think ;) so great job with that! Sounds like you summer is off to a fun start with lots more to continue. So sweet of you to pop over and say hi. I've been working so much and my blogging has taken a back seat and I so miss just spending an hour or so visiting everyone. You are right about the desk. We do have the office going in and there will be space available there .. but I really like being in the kitchen. I really just need a place for my computer and purse! ;) Anyway, I'm off to the office for the afternoon and then I'm off tomorrow ~ yay!
