A day of joy!

After much prompting from my family, the time has come to blog about one of those beautiful milestone days in life... a family wedding.
After a seven month engagement Eleanore and Robert married on a beautiful spring day, surrounded by those they love the most, and who love them.
 It was a joy and privilege to share this day with them, enjoy their planning which made the day a reflection of who they are, and just to see them so very very happy.
A gorgeous cake...
a beautiful bride...

a happy couple...
The planning and anticipation seems to take on a life of its own, and the day whizzes by so very quickly.
Stitching aunts were in attendance...
and danced up a storm!
 (It took me days to stop humming "Blame it on the boogie"...I had a Beyonce hip from shaking too much booty...oops!)
Too soon we are kissing them goodbye as we wished them well on their journey together, it seems hardly any time since it was DH and I sitting at the bridal table. My dear 82yo mother stayed until evening's end, declaring she was not going to miss a minute of the festivities!
Here are my two favourite photos from the day...
and our beautiful girl, ready to go right on time!
We are eagerly awaiting the official pics!

Your daughter is gorgeous and it looks like a wonderful time was had by all!
Our daughter was married last April and I can tell you I know all the planning that goes into it and then BANG, the day is over. Great memories.

We are now awaiting our first grand baby by said daughter! 2-3 weeks and I'll be holding that little thing in my hot little hands.

It was such a beautiful day. Lots of fun. The 'Stitching Aunts' had a fabulous time! Beyoncé Hip.....is that a medical term? I hear you have been sharing photos at an old work venue. I've had people talking to me about certain photos that were taken when the Stitching Aunts or should I say Solid Gold Dancers were doing their thing on the dance floor. Well?

Jenny said...

THe happy couple look amazing. Congratulations to them. You and the stitching Aunts look pretty good too.
