ABC Wednesday N is for Newlyweds

Another photo from a short while back, since I'm cautious about exposing myself to the elements now after having been sick/still am a bit.

This was taken downtown, and the garland above the door announces a wedding that has taken place. This is pretty much a village custom, and sometimes the garlands are quite elaborate, but you do see them in town sometimes, as in this photo.

What a nice custom! A bit old-fashioned for this part of the world, but lovely just the same. :D

What a great way of showing that a marriage has taken place. Lovely custom.

I love that village custom. Its lovely and very original for the letter N.
Hope you return to health soon. This sickness seems to be hard on everyone.

I love the wood of the door frame and what a pretty way to announce to the neighborhood of newlyweds.

This has been hanging on for a while. Sure hope your all better real soon.

It's not a custom with which I am familiar, but I like it a lot...

Hope you all well soon!

Should I assume this was the recent wedding of a couple you know very well?

Bibi said...

Hi, Chuck. Could have been, but wasn't! We didn't do the 'garland over the door' thing! :>)

A very elegant garland but hard to preserve when the flowers are natural.
And a perfect background to make it stand out.

James said...

Beautiful, and I love the woodwork.

Virginia said...

Lovely custom. Simple and nicely done.

So pretty and delicate. Looks lovely against the rich brown door.

I meant to ask if your wedding guests wore a sprig of rosemary - my mom had those for our wedding reception.

Did you do that for your daughter's wedding?
