Sometimes the Work Stops

No, we don't do field work all the time. Some events cause us to take off our work boots and leave the farm. The latest occasion: our cousin Scott's wedding in his bride's hometown.

Above: To quote Scott, "there is more that goes into a wedding than we ever imagined." The couple had much help from family and friends throughout the process. My Mom, a talented artist and seamstress, made table runners, over 400 chair covers, and potpourri bags out of wheat from Scott's fields and dried rose petals. She is amazing.

Above: My assistance was minimal compared to Mom's. I made a movie from old photos, and the collage pictured above. It covered a bulletin board in the front foyer of the reception hall.

The following photos are snapshots of the weekend.

Above: Family and friends are scattered in the pews before the rehearsal begins. You may be able to find Farmer Fred if you look closely.
