An enchanted evening

Sam's wedding couldn't have been more perfect!

It was at this cool venue that's all brick, concrete, metalwork etc. Very hip. It was lit with candles and uber romantic. It made me wish it had been around when I got married back in the dark ages.

Sam was a vision. She had a very specific idea of what she wanted her dress to look like so she had it custom made. It was the palest shade of green and looked just right with her coloring. And, it wasn't white. Sam did not want a white dress.

If you look very closely at the picture of their first dance, you can see that Ben is wearing red shoes. They are easier to see here.

But, there was no way the groom was going to steal the shoe show.

One of my favorite things at the wedding was the tower of cupcakes. (That's Amanda and her beau Derek.) Stephanie, Kylie and Caitlin made them all. Red Velvet, Carrot, Lemon, Chocolate Peanut Butter, Guiness Stout, Chai, Gluten Free Vanilla, Pumpkin.....I think there was a baker's dozen of flavors. It was only with the utmost discipline that I was able to resist trying them all.

The newlyweds are off on their honeymoon. Best wishes!!

Red shoes! It sounds like a beautiful wedding. Congratulations, Sam! (And awesome to have a face to go with Amanda's description of her new man :)

Give my best regards to Sam, she looks great in that dress and any couple that will wear matching red shoes to their wedding have a great future.
