A French Country Wedding
Here’s what one of my favorite fairy tale weddings was made of:
A French chateau in an idyllic countryside…
A perfect warm and sunny summer day,
Air filled with heavenly flower perfumes
And sounds of laughter, love and music.
Embroidered silk and satin, ruffles, ribbons, and wispy floating gowns.
And stalwart groomsmen standing by,
As rosy petals floated on the breeze….
Softest flowers blooming everywhere
All pink and blush and apricot and peach ~
Snapdragons, spicy-scented stock,
Huge hydrangeas, ruffled peonies
And tulips, freesia, phlox,
Palest pink yarrow and Canterbury bells and many more…
Pink candles ribbon-hung from branches of the trees ~
Every detail thoughtfully designed…
Tearful, smiling toasts, and wedding cake
Draped and swirled in buttercream,
Encircled by a wreath of billowing hydrangea blooms.
Under sparkling stars and candles’ glow…
A perfect and enchanting celebration to be sure,
A gift well-wrapped in Love.
And for this blissful bride and groom that day,
