Well, it finally happened after all that preparation and work! The wedding took place on the evening of August 31st at 7 pm. As you all know, I slaved over my dress, which used reclaimed satin from my mother's wedding gown, with new embroidered lace netting. It was a beautiful evening, a beautiful ceremony and a terrific time with friends and relatives. Here are a very few highlights, before we return to sewing. Here's something you'll probably never see again... me without my glasses!
We were so lucky to have been gifted by special friends with our lovely cake by Niamh Swan.
A spectacular dessert table by Claudia Matthews.
And a killer punch by Randy Schryver.
The setting was Universal Pathways in pastoral upstate New York.
We hope that everyone had as wonderful an evening as we did! We are very grateful to our friends and families. I am also grateful to all of you, who have read along as I've worked on this project, offering advice and encouragement as I put this together on a shoestring budget!
