While You're Waiting...

Three days before the kiddos got married, they had a photo shoot in their wedding clothes.



Sara's wedding dress is truly from the 1950s.  We ordered it on Etsy several months ago and made some alterations to her liking. 



The Wedding Day was a total success. Pure magic under the stars!!! While we wait for the photographer's photos and while we all recuperate over here, I thought you would enjoy these few shots.

Be still my heart! The sweetest couple-their eyes with love. I'm sure you were floating on air ML. The dress is an amazing transformation. You worked so hard to make this day a day to remember for Sara and Will.
I thought about all of you this weekend and wished I could be a fly on the wall.
I love what Jamie said, "the angels in Heaven are so happy tonight". I'm sure that is true.
Now some well deserved rest for you my friend...I look forward to seeing more pictures.

Dear Mother of the Bride...

Give yourself a medal of honor, you did a wonderful job of making this day, the most beautiful day in the world for both of them.

Creative Breathing said...

Mary Lou, What a wonderful job you did on transforming vintage to modern while still keeping all of it's charm! Lovely girl you have! Restful wishes for you MOTB! Elizabeth

Diana said...

Mary Lou,
I am still amazed as I read about your life. It is amazing and I seek to be like you every time I read your blog. Instead of making cute crafts though, I have to go to school. It is so cool to read everything too since I couldn't be there to go to the reception. You did such a nice job. Love you and hope you are enjoying your life. What now? quilting? :)

Diana said...

P.s. Sarah is so dang cute too. YOu and hubby raised her to be such a wonderful young lady. Congratulations!

Beautiful! While our Jessica and Craig struggled with photos the day of the wedding, yet hours before the wedding, your daugher was WAY ahead with 3 days before the wedding for the photos! Great idea, more time for lovely shots!

Darling coulple. Like you, we are waiting for our photos from our friend (who took the photos, not a pro! but very good..). I'll be watching your photos and come over and see ours---hopefully soon! Jessica wanted the "under the stars" reception...good thing we rented a big white tent, as we were under the clouds-rain clouds. But she was so sweet and enjoyed everything in spite of the DAY LONG RAIN>...

Blessings, Heidi
