Thursday
Tea at the Farm

Thursday was fabulous. I drove, got lost once, made sandwiches, took lots of pics, hung off a fence, drank champagne, had tea, talked, giggled, petted pretty costumes, promenaded around the lake and had more fun than should be allowed wearing my new jacket and petticoat. It was heaven! Thanks again to Loren for having us over and for everything!

Oh, that is sooo beautiful!!! :) I just love all the dresses, the hair and the colors. You guys looked like you had a wonderful, memorable day.

I have a question, is there a name to this style of gown? I really like it!

Thanks! It really was a magical day.

It's called a gaulle (or chemise à la Reine with a fitted back). modehistorique has a page on how she made the gown here: and demodemade a similar gown here.

I really love it too... I've decided I need one myself! :>

I love these pictures at Loren's farm. The rolling hills, lake, and stone basement set off the beautiful gowns so much better than the modern hotel lobby. :) Everyone looks smashing!

I was so happy we could roam about and take some fun pics - the rain held off just long enough! Thanks!

Thank you, thank you! You all look so much better in this backdrop, and we get to see you moving around in your gowns.
