Our niece's wedding was yesterday. It was a beautiful day for the wedding! It started out looking like rain, but that passed by mid-afternoon before the wedding started.  Ash made a beautiful bride! (I'm a bit biased, though!) Her new husband is a very sweet man. We wish them the best!  The wedding also allowed us to visit with many aunts and uncles that we might not have gotten to visit with otherwise.

The gorgeous bride and groom.
The wedding was very nice and the reception was fun. It was held at SoSerene in Wapakoneta, Ohio. Their colors where white and purple.  In addition to the three-layer cake, which was a delicious spice cake with filling, they had two sheet cakes. One was red velvet cake and the other was  marble cake. The groom has a huge collection of Legos and created their cake topper.

SoSerene is a beautiful place for a wedding and/or reception. A waterfall on the south side of the patio by the pond is surrounded by many beautiful flowering plants and greenery. This made a great backdrop for photographs.

Peaceful waterfall.
Lilies at the foot of the waterfall. 
They were so vibrant in color. Many 
other plants surrounded the waterfall, 
but the lilies really caught my eye.
Hibiscus in front of the pond. SoSerene had many 
gorgeous flowering plants and other greenery 
around the patio area. By the time I was able to 
take photographs of the plants, dusk was falling. 
So I didn't get very many photos.

The building and outdoor patio overlook a pond on the west side.  The water created a beautiful venue for the sunset.  I enjoyed standing here watching the sunset. The clouds were so pink, lavender, mauve, while the upper sky became a darker, richer blue.
