Mr. and Mrs. Gillespie! You sure know how to throw a party! The venue was amazing, as was the weather, the food, the guests, and oh, I almost forgot - the bride and groom! Ashley was stunning in a delicate vintage lace dress, and Mark, let's just say marriage looks really good on you! I loved all the little details this couple packed into the day. A beautiful day spent get ready (on Gillespie time), mimosas, visiting with friends out by lake, swimming - yes! Swimming in late September!, all preceded a gorgeous evening ceremony overlooking beautiful Falcon Lake! I would've expected nothing less for a 'getaway vehicle' than a canoe for these two - and they paddled off into a beautiful sunset and a very rapidly rising full moon (oh sigh.....)! Oh, and the monogrammed custom made paddles were an absolute perfect wedding gift for this outdoorsy couple.
Aaand then the party started! What a pile of super cool people these two keep company with! Bevies and some amazing hors d'oeuvres including breaded trout, and my favourite - stuffed mushrooms accompanied a great evening of visiting, dancing, and shall we say, general merrymaking! Oh, and no Gillespie party would ever really be complete without a bonfire. So naturally, we had a variety of s'more options ready to roast over an open fire - with the groom busily whittling marshmallow roasting sticks!
The biggest congrats to the both of you Mark and Ashley - may you enjoy a lifetime of happiness and make a million memories out on the lake together!
