a country wedding.

sometimes i help with various weddings and this past weekend i got to help with a wedding just down the road from my farm. i was helping the wedding planner/coordinator/florist/saint, she is wonder woman, and assisting her with whatever she needed, including hauling stumps, attempting to move a four-wheeler and arranging place settings. it was quite an eventful day. and to top it off it was extremely hot. not just hot, EXTREMELY hot. unbearable. i have never been so sweaty and worn out, i have even been to a hot yoga class in a 96 degree workout room and it couldn't compare to this heat. but altogether it was a beautiful wedding. very simple. very relaxed. and very country. it was my kind of wedding. here are some pictures i snapped with my phone in between duties. enjoy.

this is the backdrop for the ceremony.
there was a beautiful tree lined driveway behind them and
fun ribbons and flowers hanging from the trees.

this was the beautiful home. the bride walked out of the
double front doors and down the aisle.

this vintage truck greeted the guests as they arrived.
the guest book was on the tail gate and gifts were
placed in the back of the truck. too cute.

here is the beautiful reception area. sorry for the sunlight,
i snapped this in between running back and forth to the barn.
there were stringed lights and a custom made dance floor.
loveless barn catered and you better believe i ate a million biscuits.

i love a simple country wedding. it was a happy day.

much love,

go find a chair.

today i stopped by peir one just to see what they have this time of year and i found these lovely slip-covers. i am a sucker for bold floral prints and i love the pleated ruffle flair on these.

so here is what YOU need to do. next time your out flea marketing or antiquing and see a chair that you can get for a STEAL, buy it. then go to pier one and buy one of these lovelies. viola, an accent chair. perfect for extra seating or maybe even a little extra color for your office. you can get the top one for $50 and the lower one for $70. here is the link.

now that's a deal you cant refuse.

happy chair hunting.

much love,

mary morgan

a love story.

once upon a time.. a girl graduated from college. this girls parents had no idea what to get her for her graduation present and she too was at a loss..

then one day it hit her. there was one item that had been on her wish list for years, but it was one of those items that was on her wish list that was more of a dream item wish list.. with items like a pretty white flat screen tv or a boat or a house in seaside or a volvo suv.

but the time had come, the dream was coming true. she could finally cross one item off of her dream wish list. THE kitchen aid mixer.

so she rushed to the nearest computer, googled the kitchen aid website, looked at the color options (which there are tons of great options, fyi) and she saw it, there it was. it was love at first sight.. ice blue.
after calling every local store that sells ANYTHING in the greater nashville area, she was forced to order this slice of heaven over the internet, sigh.

and after many, many, MANY days of waiting... it arrived.

it was true love, she jumped, she screamed, she was like a little child on christmas receiving her first two-wheeled bike. paper was flying, instructions were lost, styrofoam torn and there she was...

world, meet loretta the mixer.

its time to bake.

much love,

mary morgan
