Wedding Blessings

This past year has been full of wonderful events, but the biggest blessing was the wedding of our daughter this past November.  This isn't a quilting post, but I thought it would be good to mention what has taken up much of my time this past year, and some of the wonderful experiences I've had.

I was so blessed to be able to share with my daughter in the wedding planning.  From her dress to arranging flowers, to decorating the reception hall...What fun we had planning, shopping and working together.

She was able to find a wonderful buy on a plain satin gown and I was able to add a lace overlay top with beading around the neckline. We added buttons from my wedding dress to the back of her dress for a touch of "something old".  We took embroidery from another dress and added it to hers for a touch of elegance.  The end result was lovely and it was one of a kind, suited just for her.

So many memories and I treasured each moment we had together getting everything ready.

The wedding day went off without a hitch- except for the 7" of snow that came to add a little more drama to the day!

Here's a photo of the happy couple

I hope your year was also full of many wonderful memories.
