In the moment

Yesterday's wedding was a blur of activity. The ceremony, cocktail hour and dinner / dancing all took place in a very long tent that was partitioned into three distinct areas. The goal was to create an elegant woodland setting totally lit by candlelight, except for the dance floor. 

The table linens were a gorgeous purple, set on rectangular tables. The centerpieces consisted of various sized containers and candles, all covered with moss, so that one only saw the flowers and the candle glow. The overhead lighting was created with nine circular frames, covered with branches, moss, flowers and hanging votive candles.

A beautiful night... which was very hard to photograph in a hurry. I leave you with a few tempting bits and pieces.

Some of the garden roses...

Isn't this a great color for a rose? A taupey, blush rose color.

This bucket of roses is full of scent. The darker red is called The Prince and smells heavenly; one of my favorite rose scents.

 The guests were pampered by these lovely pashminas to ward off any chill in the air. 

Have a lovely Sunday!
