A Thanksgiving wedding

As we're getting ready for the holidays and making our plans for Thanksgiving, I started thinking how appropriate the upcoming holiday is for a wedding. What better time to bring your close family and friends together than a day officially designated for giving thanks? You could even incorporate some traditional holiday spirit by following the formal toasts by having everyone say something for which they're thankful.

Here's what I'm envisioning ...

The Written:
Luckily, the bride's parents own a charming colonial-style farmhouse (in Massachusetts, of course!) with an old rustic barn out back for some after-party mingling and dancing. Cranberry and gold color palette. Mulled cider. Pumpkins galore. One long table for guests to dine (No separate table for children, I hate that!). Lots of cranberry wreaths. Groom ceremonially carves the turkey. Caramel apple favors and apple bobbing for the children in the barn. Pumpkin spice cake with buttercream frosting. And ... most importantly, absolutely no cornucopias in sight. ;o)

The Visual:

& the details:
Row 1: Joseph Webb house; Pottery Barn dining room; cranberry wreath; Row 2: MS pumpkin dip; Caramel pumpkin pie; turkey; Row 3: Bouquet; cones; and spiced cider all by Michelle Rago

For some reason, I don't think I've *ever* known or heard of an actual Thanksgiving wedding. Have you had one? Are you planning one? Know of someone who has?
