Well, what day isn't a beautiful day for a wedding? Weather has very little to do with it.
Saturday, Andy, Mom, and I traveled to Indiana to celebrate our neice's wedding. It was about a three hour trip which gave me ample knitting time.
The happy couple, Liz and Sajay, had a very busy day with three separate ceremonies.
First, they had a Catholic blessing at the church. Later in the afternoon, they had a traditional Hindu wedding ceremony followed by a civil ceremony. We attended the afternoon ceremonies which were held outside at Andy's family's home. The weather was crisp and bright. Definitely fall-like. So nice for a wedding.
For the Hindu wedding, Liz wore a sari made of gorgeous silk from India. Mom and I watched as Liz's now mother-in-law and friend dressed her. The silk was wrapped, folded, pleated, tucked, etc. to form the dress. Fascinating to watch. She was adorned in gold jewelry per custom. Sajay donned a sherwani. The ceremony was so interesting - full of symbolism with lots of rich colors.
For the civil ceremony, Liz changed into a wedding gown and Sajay wore a suit.
The grounds looked wonderful! The family has been very busy getting the yard and gardens ready for the big event. The flow around the house from the different areas was great! Just a perfect place for a big happy event.
Sunday was another Farmers Market in Waynesville. I love sitting outside visiting with people on these nice end-of-summer days. If anyone reading this knows of people in the Waynesville are who have things for sale - mums, pumpkins, honey, etc. - the
Farmers Market is still looking to add vendors. We'd like to finish the season with a bang! I'll be there again this coming Sunday weather permitting. Come out and see me!
This weekend is A Wool Gathering at Yellow
Springs. I moved to Ohio Labor Day weekend in 2009. This fiber show happened a couple weeks following my move. I thought it was Ohio's way of welcoming me. I love this show! It's not huge but has grown every year since I started attending in 2009. The show is a good size to still allow you time to putz around the charming little town of Yellow Springs. Very eclectic and interesting. Mom and I are going to the show and will be there bright and early! Holler if you see us!
