Praying It Don't Rain!

Saturday, one of my good friends got married outside in a rustic barn, High Point Farms- you can visit there website here for more pictures and to hear more about it. I really loved the venue, it was picture perfect!

I told my friend that I would help out at the wedding and the entire time I was praying for NO rain during the ceremony. And it didn't rain during the ceremony, PTL! BUT, it did rain before the wedding, so we lost a little bit of time decorating and we were running behind, to the point that when guests were arriving, we were still setting up the ceremony site in out tshirts! Luckily, it all came together, after MUCH running around and stress! HA... I did not sit, eat or potty the entire day.. FOR REAL.
I must say, that I have a lot to add to my resume: Cake decorator, coordinator, director, server, florist, decorator etc...
This is the old farmhouse on the property, it has been there since the Civil War. So neat!
