In the quiet–where nature seemed to hush the rush of everyday life–down a winding gravel road and through the cover of aged trees, you’d find a barn.
Painted white with glass panel windows.
Under the pavilion a long, hand crafted table. A bench on one side. Mis-matched antique wood chairs on the other. Eight place settings total. Tulle draped on top of the wood, accenting it’s deep rich tones with a soft beauty. Garland laid on top of the tulle and at varied height white candles pulled the viewers eye up. The plates were white on white on white-each pattern different than the setting below it. Gold rimmed glasses and gold silverware accented the sides of each place setting just so.
Framing the table and against the simple white backdrop were six ferns. Rich and lush and full of life. Scrolls written and rolled with each guest in mind and clipped to the wood ladder. The three-layer cake swirled with details and macaroons painted gold suspended on either side. White mouse topped with mint and white wine were also to be found. Vintage stamps, gold lace ribbon and hand pressed custom invitations all made up the essence of what this wedding was all about.
And love in every detail.
Her hair was swept back loose and lovely. Tulle upon tulle upon tulle wrapped around her waist and seemed to dance as she walked. He looked at her like all that mattered in this quiet nook in the world was her. And she smiled like she agreed.
The breeze turned cool and softly, slowly at first, the rain began. Until all at once they were lost in a beautiful storm.
In a way.
Just like their love.
