Autumn Nuptuals...

My sister Lura is getting married! I'm so excited!

Lura has been dating Albert for a of couple years. They actually dated in high school, but each married other people. Now, 200 years later, Lura and Alby are back together and planning a fall wedding. Neither wants a wedding in the traditional sense, Lura and Alby are looking to host a small, relaxed party in a nice room.

Last week she sent me a "save the date" magnet for my fridge. The magnet is quite nice, it has a picture of her summer garden in full bloom. Lura said Alby suggested they use that color scheme for the wedding flowers and the invitations. Lura explained she had something else in mind.

Since this is the second time for both of them, and the wedding is planned for the end of September, Lura would like to incorporate the colors of autumn in New England, tying together the decorations in the room, the costumes of the wedding party, the flowers and the wedding invitations . Alby really liked that idea and suggested an estate with great function rooms on the edge of some conservation land.

I think this will be a fabulous day. I've been to the estate Alby suggested. On a cool fall day, it will be beautiful with the foliage just turning. There are superb gardens on the grounds that I'm sure will be just bursting with mums and asters and other cool weather plantings. The estate has some really interesting opportunities for portraits and candid photographs.

Lura and Alby make a great couple. They are quite devoted to one another, and to the celebration of their marriage. I'm glad they found each other again after all these years. I'm sure they will be very happy together.


  1. Congrats to your sister. How cool.

    I do have aquestion though, what will you be wearing to the wedding?

  2. Sounds WONDERFUL! But ummm.... COSTUMES to the wedding? Do you want to explain further? Does this mean Quilly & Amoeba will be heading east again in the Fall?
