One Fine Day
I love American weddings! Each one so reflects the individuality of the couple tying the knot, unlike most cookie-cutter Japanese weddings. J & R's was no exception: it was as charming and homespun and as earthy as the two newlyweds (who are now off on a ten-day camping honeymoon!)
R grew almost all of the flowers for the event and J made a huge batch of his own beer, using hops grown on our very ranch. (The hops also featured in the male attendants' corsages!) R's dad welded together a cute cake server and her mom made the wedding cakes, all decorated with home-grown Johnny-jump-ups.
Kids ran wild, a gypsy jazz band played on and guests had a boot-stomping, flip-flop shuffling good time at the barn reception.
