A lesson I've just learned: even though Western NC is quite far away now, even though there may be a gas crisis, even though your car floods itself like an excited baby whale... it is always worth it to make the trip. This weekend we gladly packed up some pretty clothes (and a gift I've been working on for months) and drove south west to Asheville for Nathan & Suzannah's wedding. I didn't know much about what to expect, but there was no doubt in my mind that we were in for a beautiful, heartfelt, profoundly lovey-dovey wedding. And I was right!
Cutting the cake. Baked by Becah, photographed by Lola, and cut open by the happy couple:
The ceremony was awesome. We made a mansion of ribbons, each representing their loving intentions, for them to be married under:
We all worked to cook and lay out the main meals:
And at the end, we all threw origami balls up in the air and smacked them, releasing hundreds of paper butterflies.
Many more pictures of the whole dang first day (didn't bring the camera on day two) on Flickr.
