Wedding Plans

Well, the wedding is coming along nicely.  I'm more preoccupied with the farm at this point but luckily wedding planning has been easy so far.  We need an officiant, cakes and a caterer.  Major things I guess.

 I'm meeting with a baker this week.  We want three smaller cakes that are just frosted a bit rustically.  I will decorate them with real flowers from the farm.

An officiant shouldn't be hard to find for us since that don't have be from a church.

 The caterer is proving to be a bit trickier.  I've contacted a few places and they are booked up so, hmmm.  We are providing all the vegetables and I had the crazy thought of doing it ourselves but that would be way to much to handle for the amount of people we will have over.  I'm thinking a cheese platter and a bruschetta with tomato, basil, and mozzarella platter for cocktail hour.  Then a nice salad, a green bean side, potato side and chicken.

I found a costume designer to make my dress.  She works for the Interlochen Arts Academy and is pretty excited to help me with my dress.  She doesn't normally do wedding dresses but she loved that I am using my grandma and great grandmas wedding dresses plus some other antique pieces.  We are shooting for a semi Victorian era look with lots of lace, flowers, ruffles etc.  It is going to be gorgeous!

The snow has finally nearly all gone.  I can prepare the fields now.  We have a tracter coming today or tomorrow to plow and till for us.  I have a zillion seedlings here and at another greenhouse.  We are about to get our greenhouse put up but needed the ground to dry more so that we can level the greenhouse site.  That should happen in the next few days too.  What a cool, slow spring!
