|Caitlin and Devin's reception August 24th 2010|
We had the reception in Sandy at LE JARDIN and it was very beautiful. They set up all these white orchids and heart ivy topiaries all around the giant greenouse filled with wrought iron and stone and flowers. We added our little touches of black and white and creme, Cait's colors. It turned out really lovely and the weather cooperated too. It wasn't too hot for an August evening in Utah!
The linens Cait chose to match the black and white color scheme turned out so pretty. The black, ceramic pots have white orchids and we wrapped each one in a black and white ribbon with little crystals thrown around for a little glitter. Lucky for us Mrs. McCain had loaned us all the pictures of Dev and Cait growing up from the St. Louis reception in these sweet little frames. They added a lot to the decor.....I really loved the black voile bows on the white chairs...
|THE LOVERLY BRIDE AND GROOM|
I love this one the best.....
There are statuary waterfalls all over the insides of the greenhouse. It is actually a flower shop during the day and at night it opens for private parties. I love hanging out there in the summer. It is a stone's throw from our house. We could have walked there, but it would have been hard to carry the lemonade dispenser...:-D And all the cakes....
|Pretty couple..... them ... us...not so much....|
|Beautiful things everywhere....|
|Like....My beautiful new grandbaby Josie. She was a good girl and slept through most of the night.|
|Isn't she just the sweetest thing...you should see her when she smiles!|
|My daughter Tiffany, her husband Gary and their 2 cutie pie girls, Megan and Marisa...|
Now these cute little jars are simple cookie jars from Walmart, but I used black and white scrapbooking paper inside in different designs and different ribbons on the jars. Then I found some cute wedding stickers in black and white to add to the outsides. We filled them with 3 different kinds of homemade cookies. I did the same thing for Wendy's baby shower using the jars with pink and green ribbons and scrapbooking paper. They turned out sooooo cute both times!
We did every kind of fruit in season on platters. I'm so glad we have Costco in our lives.... So glad....
There were these giant pink, white and blue hydrangeas all over the place.... they looked so gorgeous! Boy do I wish I could grow these in my yard. I have tried before and with my black thumb they just die within a year. I wonder what the secret is....
|Marisa's little flower girl purse. Caitlin found them in St. Louis....|
I asked 2 little girls from my ward to help serve and I made them matching aprons like this tablecloth under the fruit and added different striped fabric on the pockets and black ribbons on top. We forgot to take a picture of them but they dressed in black and white and looked so cute acting all official bussing tables.
We had iced lemon water and iced lemonade for the drink dispensers.
|Grandpa Don Moss and Grandma Merlene Moss, both of them in their eighties and going strong! Aren't they so cute?|
Well nobody is cuter than Marisa Belle....Flower girl extraordinaire!
|Megan Tremayne, littler flower girl...|
|My son Jeffrey and his cute wife Wendy and their firstborn daughter, Miss Josie....Cute family pic! Thanks Candice! I will be putting these into frames for my family picture wall in the den....|
|Tiffany made all the girls hair bows...too cute...Cait found these little pearl bracelets for them both. They were little dolls in their lace dresses with black sashes and black Mary Jane shoes...|
I loved this gazebo in the middle of the room. It was so pretty...
|MOSS FAMILY 2010 CUTE SHOT!!!|
|I love this statue so I bought it and the vase for my house. The caption says "Plant the Seeds of Love and watch them grow.... and you know what? I think it's really true!|
|We had chocolate, white and carrot cakes, chocolate turtle pie and coconut cream pie (John's favorite)|
My handsome husband. But why didn't anybody tell me my hair was doin a left turn?

|I'll give you a petal if you give me one of yours!|
|Here's Grandpa Moss giving the newlyweds lots of advice...|
|"Well Dad, yeah I've got enough for the honeymoon but if you're handing out money...well... let me just get my wallet.. you know you can always use more cash in the Cayman Islands! "|
|"Hey Grandma! Can we do this again tomorrow? It's been fun! "|
