Life on the Connecticut Shore - A Few Scratchy Wedding Photos and a Quote

Notes from a New Hampshire Garden Club Meeting:
The Garden Club meeting in February was on Valentine's Day.  The subject was wedding flowers.  The presenter included history, which influenced how lavish or sparse the bouquets were.  She said in the 1930's the most popular month for weddings was November, and the most popular day was Thanksgiving.  Apparently weddings were held then so folks didn't have to travel, since they were already gathered for Thanksgiving.
Spring wasn't always the most popular time for New England weddings.

  1. Simply lovely, understated and covered up. I also used ivy in my wedding.

  2. Loved the dog and the little boy with his khaki's and bow tie. My husband tells me his parents dressed him in a little tie and sometimes even little-boy cufflinks for Sunday church every week. It's probably why he hates to dress up these days, but I do miss those days when people dressed appropriately.

  3. Not that much different than our wedding...except the dog stayed with the cousin's children. She ( the Border Collie) loved kids.

  4. In Texas, garden weddings are always held in April or October, after that, you run the risk of 100F degree heat or in the Winter, rain....especially in the Houston area.

  8. This reminds me so much of my first wedding! Guessing this happened between 1988-1990?

  9. Have no idea who these people are, but they must be good eggs with a boat load of champagne.

  10. Lovely lovely. The button detail on the dress, the bouquet, the basketweave cake, and the dog in the ice. Tasteful, refined and elegant. Thank you for sharing.
