Our friends Ed and Jess were married over the weekend in Massachusetts, at the foothills of the Berkshires in farm country. On the morning of the wedding, we all set out to pick flowers for the ceremony and reception. Ed and Jess belong to a farm co-op, where we gathered buckets full of coneflowers, spider flowers, and sunflowers...

Wildflower bouquets in mason jars decorated the tables. All of the food was locally grown, the music was provided by friends (the bride and groom even sang a few songs), and the weather held up all day! Congratulations, Ed and Jess!
