Our spring 1920s-themed wedding
As I mentioned in a previous post, the spring wedding season is starting.
My husband and I were married at a 1920s-themed wedding in April 2007. I think spring is a lovely time to get married, for several reasons: Because it's such a pretty season, because it's not too hot, and because it's a symbolic time for a new beginning.
Of course, spring weddings can also be quite a challenge, because it is the beginnign of the rainy season in many places. Luckily, the day Michael and I chose for our wedding was sunny and perfectly clear.
A risk of spring weddings that we did encounter was that sometimes a late frost can kill or retard the new spring growth. Our wedding was in the courtyard at a winery, which is usually draped with grape vines. Unfortunately, a week of hard frost in late March or early April meant that there wasn't much green growth on the vines.
Of course, there was enough green growth to take this series of pictures, which turned out to be among my favorites of all the pictures of Michael and I together:
It really was a perfect wedding!
