My daughter and her long-time beau had a lovely civil ceremony yesterday. The bridal bouquet and groom's boutonniere came from our local florist, Parkview Gardens, at http://parkviewgardens.com/
The bride's vintage velvet pillbox was sourced at a local antique mall.
Several hours later, wedding attendees enjoyed a jovial dinner at Llywelyn's Pub, St. Peters, at http://llywelynspub.com/st-peters The food was terrific and our waitstaff provided helpful additional services, such as a "vase" for the bridal bouquet and a large knife for cutting a delicious red velvet wedding cake purchased from McArthur's Bakery, see http://www.mcarthurs.com/.
Thank you to everyone who attended, and the gifts they provided to make this a beautiful & intimate day for a very special couple.

Last night there was a huge thunderstorm with hail here, and tornadoes in Wentzville about 20 miles away. This is the second significant thunderstorm/hail/tornado warning we've had this year. A bit early for extreme weather, but as we have all noticed the weather patterns are changing. Spring is definitely 3 weeks early.
Tomorrow will be 75F/23.8C! I am enjoying the sunny warmth though, and the delightful fragrance of my yard full of blooms.
