Things are finally settling down after a crazy summer of renovations and wedding preparations . Max & Stef 's wedding was just wonderful , the weather was gorgeous , bright and sunny and just warm enough to be comfortable . The bride & groom looked fabulous and were ecstatically happy to have all their family and friends there to wish them well . Jessey and Emma were perfect in their roles as flower girl and ring bearer .
The reception was such a blast with lots of good food and great music . They had a live band a DJ , both of whom were friends of the bride and groom . They did an amazing job, with something for all musical tastes, young and old alike . I don't remember the last time I danced so much .
Though the wedding was on Saturday Sept. 5th , the party started on the Thursday night with a rehearsal dinner /BBQ . We had family come in from the US, some of which stayed with us, so there was non stop entertaining . We hosted a BBQ on Sunday afternoon the the last of the festivities were on Tuesday evening with another party hosted by Stef's dad and step mom . The happy couple finally left on their honeymoon last Saturday morning . As I'm writing this they're probably sunning themselves on a beach in the Cayman Islands .
I managed to finish the shawl with time to spare . It was done and blocked about a week before the wedding . You can get a peek of it in the picture of Jessey on my lap in the church . None of the pictures we took with our camera were blog worthy so there will be another photo shoot soon .
More about what's on my needles as regular blogging resumes this week . Life is getting back to normal , but not for long as September is birthday month at our house . God help me and my waistline !
