Saturdays, creating a wedding and new beginnings

There is something about Saturdays that just because it is Saturday, it feels different. If I am meeting with a client on a Saturday, it just feels more casual, even if it is not. During the week I would never do this, but on a Saturday if I am meeting a client, I do not feel the need to dress up as much. And I might not even shower (shhh!). I love Saturdays. I don't feel guilty to watch television during the day ... or take a nap. It is a day to refresh. And not matter how hard the week was ... you get to start over on Sunday. Kind of like a new year. Or a new season.

I spent this Saturday with my latest wedding client - a darling girl whose wedding is going to be spectacular. Oh, how I love working with my brides :)

This is going to be a barn wedding and it will be filled with vintage furniture, gold candelabras and naked cakes on peach pedestals. We planned and made some changes and worked on specific details. And these will be used:

There is something very magical and exciting about planning and creating a wedding. They are new beginnings. It is not just about this one day. It is about a the fresh new start as a couple beginning their life together; a coming together of two ... joined as one. A new season of their lives. I can't think of a better way to spend a Saturday! 

“[T]hat old September feeling, left over from school days, of summer passing, vacation nearly done, obligations gathering, books and football in the air ... Another fall, another turned page: there was something of jubilee in that annual autumnal beginning, as if last year's mistakes had been wiped clean by summer.”
― Wallace StegnerAngle of Repose

"Do not remember the former things,
Nor consider the things of old.
Behold I will do a new thing,
Now it shall spring forth;
Shall you not know it? 
I will even make a road in the wilderness
And rivers in the desert."
-Isaiah 43:18-19
