another love story...

A couple of weekends ago, we set off to the sunshine state for my sisters wedding. 
They had an intimate ceremony and dinner on the Saturday and a Newlywed's picnic on the Sunday. It was such a wonderful weekend, with perfect weather to boot. 
You may remember me designing the invites a while back, well the whole wedding was a family affair, with everybody chipping in to help. We even managed to rope Mum's friend in to finish the bunting at the 11th hour.
On Sunday morning the boys went off to set up at the park, while the ladies got busy in the kitchen. At one stage I was breastfeeding Arlo, while giving orders and instructions to the merry band of helpers. 2 sisters, 1 Mum, 2 friends and an aunt. We made baguettes, sandwiches, cinnamon scrolls, fruit platters, antipasto platters, cupcakes... and don't forget the cake! 
Mum was in charge of the baking of the most magnificent cake. It was a 10 layer Red Velvet affair. How amazing does it look! I wish I got a picture of it cut.
Here's the cute couple too. 
Don't mind the knife wielding bride, she is really quite sweet.

Congratulations Melly and Zan!
