The wedding is over, and all of my company is gone! I thought I would share some pictures over the next few days so I hope you won't mind.
For those of you who may not know - my middle daughter got married last Saturday and since it was a Do It Yourself kind of wedding it has consumed me!
So here we go.
This first picture was taken by my youngest daughter's boyfriend. He just happened to be there when my mother was showing 5 of my brother's 6 children the inside of the sanctuary. All 6 of the children were in the wedding!
The chalkboard on the right was one of our projects. It is an old mirror painted with chalkboard paint.
I made 28 pew markers - one for each of the pews in the center aisle. They are fabric flowers made with fabric and lace. Each flower has a different center made with an old brooch or earring that I bought at yard sales.
My youngest daughter was one of the two maids of honor.
My oldest daughter was also a maid of honor. She is the one who fractured her pelvis 5 weeks ago and we weren't sure if she could even be in the wedding. Not only was she able to walk down the aisle - she walked without a limp and wore high heels! I had my emotions in check until she walked down. Then I lost it. I am just so grateful to God for sparing her life and bringing her so far along in the healing process.
We borrowed a Radio Flyer wagon and decorated it with tulle and lace and ribbon. Why?
My 3 month old nephew was in the wagon and pulled along by his 7 year old sister. His 5 year old sister and 3 1/2 year old sister followed. The 2 year old sister wouldn't walk down the aisle which was ok. It was all overwhelming for her. But you could hear the "awwww"s as the children went by and understandably so! They were all ADORABLE!!
The flower clips in their hair were also made with fabric. I had leftover fabric so why not?!
The sign carrier came next. He is the 9 year old brother of the flower girls and the baby. All 6 are my brother's children and they did a fabulous job!I know you are probably anxious to see the bride and you will! I don't want to overload this post with pictures so I will continue tomorrow.
Until then.... thanks for stopping by.
