i heart macro Sunday

For my Challenge of Travel post, click here.

Last weekend, I was fortunate enough to attend a family wedding at the Overlook Farm in Clarskville, Missouri.

The entire wedding was outside .. in August .. during one of the hottest summers I can remember.  Someone smiled on us, though, and the weather was perfect.

The wedding took place in one of the three houses on the farm.  This house had a beautiful flower garden in the back.  You could see the effects of such a hot, dry summer on some of the flowers.

Other flowers fared a bit better.

The flower garden housed a few iron trellises that were covered in vines.

Exiting the garden, we were treated to fresh lemonade - perfect for such a nice day.

Did you notice that the lemonade was served in mason jars?  That was a bit of a theme.

The ceremony was, of course, beautiful and the bride was stunning.  The groom wasn't to be outdone, though.

I *love* those shoes.

After the ceremony, we were ferried to a second house for the reception.

I had never attended an outdoor wedding and had no idea how beautiful one could be, especially as the sun began to go down and the candles seemed to glow.

This was one of my all time favorite weddings and I am so thankful to have been included in such a special day.

Oh .. and did I mention PIE!  (How did they know strawberry rhubarb was my favorite?)
