Introducing Two New Pairs in the Garden ;-)

I've been a little quiet in the past month, so here's a quick update on two new pairs in my garden.  The first is a little ephemeral, as you can see by the bite marks.  (I couldn't resist sampling before I snapped the pic.)


The second pair is going to be much longer lasting.  :-)


This is just a friend's cell phone pic taken off the back deck of our reception venue, so it isn't the clearest shot... but I like our smiles in this one, and we don't have our official pictures yet!  Steve had ditched his suit jacket immediately after pictures because it was about 95 degrees outside.  That amazing necklace and matching pearl earrings belonged to Steve's grandma.  My brooch bouquet is mostly made up of vintage brooches and earrings that belonged to all of our grandmas, plus gift brooches from my Mom and my boss, and a couple of special Etsy finds that have personal meaning--like a black dog to represent my gardening assistant.

It was a wonderful day all around... and we felt very lucky to have so many close family and friends join us in celebration.  :-)
------------------------

Note:  I'll be back to my regular (irregular) blogging in a week or so... Steve and I are going to take a little honeymoon of sorts. It involves sleeping in, staying offline, and spending lots of quality time together doing things like hiking and biking. See you all again afterward!

Have to admit my first thought: "You spelled pears wrong. And those are peaches."
