The Wedding - a few more pics.

The Bride's bouquet... orange calla lilies...

and the bridesmaids carried an assortment in autumn colours.

The bridesmaids were stunning in their gorgeous dresses.... three friends of the Bride and the Bride's sister....

.... and the groomsmen looked pretty good too. OlderSon was Best Man, and the other three handsome young men are friends of both the Bride and Groom.

Guests were invited to sign the engagement portrait.
And of course, the Wedding Cakes! The round one was a three tier chocolate cake provided by the reception venue. The Bride and Groom decoration on top came from the wedding cake of the Bride's great aunt who passed away earlier this year.
The square cake was my homemade fruit cake decorated by Susan. Both cakes were served at the late night buffet.

My Granddaughters are still asleep, so I have a quiet moment to myself..I saw your comment saying you'd posted the wedding..and here I am, (proving there's no fool like a romantic old fool,) with tears streaming down my face!
Your pictures of this lovely wedding with the beautiful bride and handsome groom are perfect!
I love the blue of your dress... your eldest looks the perfect best man...the colors and flowers are just right for an autumn wedding.
I've had a lovely time attending your son's wedding..thank you for sharing:)

It just gets better and better, Ex-S. Those may be the prettiest wedding bouquets I have ever seen, bar none! And I LOVE how there were so many touches tucked in from the relatives, like the cake topper.

Thanks for sharing!

I love the Lily's they are so pretty, and the cake looks so yummy, It was nice to have that topper from a family memeber what a nice tribute to the aunt.

Looking at the two post, seems to have been a terrific wedding! ... and what were the comments about your cake? (Too humble to mention?)

The lilies are so beautiful, I have never seen them in that colour before, only white.

And the chocolate cake iced, I bet that was absolutely scrummy

That wedding, with the beautiful flowers and the gorgeous young people, topped off with the cake you made, was just about the perfect affair. I'm sure of it.

Oops. Did I click the wrong button for yesterday's comment? It's not here.

I didn't notice the autumn colors before. They're spectacular.

Best wishes for the couple, and may they be a blessing to each other's family.
