Weekend Wrap-up

The highlight of my weekend was a friend's daughter's wedding.  This is a young lady who is very intelligent and has a very kind heart, but can be as dopey as the next person!  CH & I used to go to away high school football games with my friend and her significant other.  Sadly, when they broke up, we didn't see each other much.  
My friend said they had a venue booked, and 5 weeks before the wedding they were notified that the building "wasn't structurally sound".  They scrambled, and, in my opinion, found the perfect place:
It definitely had a prettier view than their original plan.
 It was a very informal, yet intimate wedding.  The groomsmen wore Sperry's:

When I first saw the bride, I thought, "That's not the young lady I knew", but then, as she was coming down the aisle, she said, "Hey!" and I knew she was still there!
I didn't even think about taking tissue with me; it's a good thing I had sunglasses on!  It almost felt like it was my own daughter getting married.  There were several times during the short ceremony that I got teary-eyed; it was just so beautiful.  My friend did an amazing job with everything.  Beside each row of chairs, there were stumps with these on them:
There were clear stones on the bottom, something that looked like some kind of gel, and a candle on top of that.  Just the right touch!
The reception was in a barn; barbecue was served.
On the tables were these mason jars, as well as tags:


The couples' first dance:


 The rest of the weekend was pretty low-key.  What was the highlight of  your weekend?
