A Wedding Blog Party...

If you're here for the
please click here.

Today I'm participating in the Wedding Blog Party,
hosted by Stephanie at Angelic Accents.
Our only guideline is that it be romantic or wedding-related.

My regular followers know that I recently completed
a wedding gown for my mum's April beach wedding,
but if you're new to Brynwood, I'd like to share my favorite
photograph from her big day:
Our family has known Burt for over 45 years.
It was a match made in Heaven, and their celebration was perfect
and I was honored to make the gown she wore for her special day.
You can click here, if you'd like to see the entire wedding album.
In 2008, my eldest niece (who is also my goddaughter)
was married. I made her gown, the attendant's dresses
and the cummerbund for her husband and his son,
who she has now adopted.

In March of this year, she gave birth to their second son.
I made his christening gown from the surplus fabric
I'd purchased for her gown. (I'd planned ahead, knowing
that they wanted to have more children together.)
You can click here to see their entire wedding album,
from choosing the fabric, to Handsome and me
dancing at their reception. I've even included a photo
of their new son and his finished christening gown,
which I am hand delivering to them this weekend.
I couldn't do a romantic post without sharing my wedding
photograph to Handsome. It was 60º on December 29th
in Wisconsin!! (Yes, it was a record heat wave in 1984.)
We celebrated our 25th anniversary last December,
and I'm as crazy about this man now as the day I met him.
(It was love at first sight...really!)
In the words of the vicar in The Princess Bride,
"If it's Wuv...Twoo Wuv."

I hope you enjoyed my romantic post today,
and that you get a chance to visit the other participants
in The Wedding Blog Party.

May your days also be filled with love and happiness.

Dear Donna, the first time I visited your post wasn't up yet, so I'm just getting back to your blog to visit your beautiful wedding post!

How many daughters get to make a beautiful wedding gown for their mother? How wonderful that you are so supportive of her and her new husband. I remember seeing their beautiful wedding on your blog.

I believe it was the bridal gown and christening gown that got me "hooked" on your lovely blog. Your god daughter looked so lovely on her wedding day and what an adorable little boy and pretty bridesmaids. I'll have to visit her wedding album when I finish here.

Your wedding day looks like it was glorious. I adore your frothy lacey gown ~ just dreamy ~ and you were/are beautiful. Handsome IS handsome, too! May God bless you with many many more happy healthy years together.

Thanks so very much for joining in the WEDDING BLOG PARTY, Donna! I feel so blessed to call you a dear friend now, too!

Big TX Hugs,
