超美麗的戶外花園自然婚禮 / Super Beautiful Outdoor Garden Wedding at Bodega Bay

一個星期前,我們倆參加了個愉悅又美麗的戶外花園婚禮,大王好友 Zach 的婚禮。

婚禮辦在一個位於 Bodega Bay 的美麗私人花園,這個花園佔地廣闊而且有著各種層次的植物,配合迷人的綠色草地與池塘小橋造景,放眼放去每個角落都讓人心情愉悅,而晴天白雲只是讓一切更為完美。

配合著花園的調性,當天婚禮的 Dress Code 是隨性,希望大家來參加的自在就好。

A week ago, we went to a delightful and beautiful outdoor garden wedding.

Zach, a good friend of Wayne got married in a fabulous private garden in Bodega Bay.  This private garden is really spacious with all sorts of greens.  With its charming lawn, large quiet pond and footbridges, in every direction our eyes were delighted.  The nice sunny weather just made everything perfect.

 

 

這場美麗的婚禮對我們而說很特別,因為我們不只是單純的婚禮賓客,Zach 還邀請我們去可愛的露天廚房裡幫忙做 2-3 道小甜點,真的感覺非常榮幸可以幫忙,而且我沒有過這樣的經驗,真的很好玩。

配合著現場的材料,我們做了百里香蜂蜜無花果和 Brie 起司覆盆子千層杯,耶!

This wedding was not only beautiful but also a very special experience to us because we got to have fun in the kitchen!  Wayne and I were invited to help out and made adorable desserts for other wedding guests.  It’s really fun!

We made Grilled Figs With Thyme Honey and Brie & Raspberry Phyllo Cups!  Yum Yum!

 

 

與我熟識的朋友都知道我不太參加婚禮,因為坦白說,我不是很能夠一直「待在婚禮的狀態」裡面,也很難真的放鬆,特別是室內的喜宴 (除非它很特別)。但是這個婚禮對我而言是個新奇的體驗。

我享受陽光在池塘上的閃爍,涼爽的夏日微風在池塘上逗起的漣漪,我可以在這個美麗的花園裡跑來跑去、爬上爬下,認識我生命裡從來沒看過的植物,與戴了項圈與花環的羊咩咩做朋友,這些都讓我開始喜歡上了戶外婚禮。

Honestly I’m usually not good at ‘being’ at weddings.  I’ve never relaxed in any wedding, especially indoor ones unless it’s very special.  However, this wedding was a whole new experience to me.

I enjoy sunshine gleaming on the pond and the cool summer breeze created multiple rings of ripples on the surface.  I could run around in this pretty garden, identify new plants of my life and met a new friend of mine with collar and wreath.  I’m now in love with outdoor weddings.

 

 

酒足飯飽後,進入了美國婚禮的重頭戲-跳舞,幾乎每對準備婚禮的美國新人,都會為自己的婚禮安排樂團現場演奏或DJ。這次當然也不例外,大家開心的從白天跳到了夜晚。

After speeches and dinner were done, it’s time for dancing.  It seems to be very important when it comes to US weddings. That’s why people would spend a lot of time looking for talented band or DJ when they are doing wedding preparation.  This beautiful outdoor garden wedding was no exception, and we all happily danced until it got dark.

 

 

由於隔天就是美國國慶 7/4,這場美麗戶外婚禮就在美麗的煙火裡劃下了句點。

This beautiful wedding ended with gorgeous July 4th fireworks.
