Wedding Excitement!

Oh, what a weekend Hitty Jean has had!  There was a rehearsal at the Martha-Mary Chapel:


The bridesmaids and groomsmen were all there, along with the betrothed couple and their parents….It was all very exciting and chaotic, and brought over a year of planning to fruition.  The Bride’s Mother was a bit overwhelmed by this, so she and Hitty Jean had a quiet, reflective moment together by the Grist Mill before heading to the Rehearsal Dinner:


The following day was Wedding Day!  Such Joy and Relief that it was one of only a handful of perfect Wedding-Weather days New England has had this May!  The day was a blur, with so much happening, building up to the main event.  First there was lots (and lots!) of primping:


Then there was some beautiful lace:


And a portrait with the bride – before even the groom had seen her:


Hitty Jean was thrilled to be a flower girl, though she was a bit tiny to walk down the aisle and was instead carried (discreetly) by the Mother of the Bride.  And – oh, my –  there was a horse and carriage ride, some beautiful, witty vows, a harp playing, and lots and lots of festively dressed guests from all over the world!  Hitty Jean admits she was a bit overcome by all the excitement!  When asked what her favorite part of the wedding was, Hitty Jean had a hard time deciding.  She loved the Bride and Groom…and the dancing…and all the love amongst friends and family…but she has to admit that the Anniversary Cake* – being almost Hitty Sized – also comes in at the top!


Congratulations, Maisy and Oles!  We love you!!!

‘Til Next Time..

*Anniversary Cake – Replacing the custom of saving the wedding cake’s top layer to eat on the first anniversary, an Anniversary Cake is a small, two serving replica of the full-sized cake.  (Minus the fresh flowers!)  Pretty cute!
