In December I completed a dress for a customer who’s wedding was just before Christmas. Lynn Chose to have the Evelyn style dress in wine red with silver detailing. I mentioned that I would be posting some more photos of the dress so here they are with some more details:

The dress was made in wine crepe backed satin with the matt side outward facing, with matching wine chiffon for the sleeves and skirt overlayers.
The detailing on the dress which consists of embroidered motifs, leaves and beading with swarovski crystals was done in a warm silver shade with some deep red beads included on the skirt and the strings of beads over the upper arms.
The train on the dress is aproximately 2 feet long and the skirt shape is supported by netting layers.
Phew! Am I glad that today’s wedding is indoors. Getting ready to officiate at the much looked forward to ceremony of Justine and Josh. In an earlier post I told about going to the wedding shower and having a great time with all their close friends and family.
Today should be even more of a blast, I did see the pictures of her bachelorette [to us UK folks, that's a hen night] party, and it looked like the ladies enjoyed Boston immensely! Justine is one of those people that everyone likes to be around. Very positive and upbeat in a relaxed way…you would have to meet her to see what I mean.
Anyway. I digress. Having my coffee and brunch while checking my travel times, and adding a little extra time to allow for delays caused by this torrential rain. However, I am certain that Miss Justine will be radiant enough to make everyone forget the grey day and have a fabulous time! More later.
I saw the title of this post and it reminded me of a wedding that was a marriage between two existing families. The young man who was the middle child of the new family, but the eldest of the bride’s children, was earnestly telling me that he was ‘upset’ that his mom was not having a ring bearer.
He continued on lamenting his woes, and I listened for a while, trying to explain to him that not all weddings had a ring bearer. I then asked him why he felt so let down that he was not going to carry rings. He replied that he really, really wanted to wear the costume.
After a pause, and a rapid brain spin for me, I realized that this young man had misinterpreted the whole thing and thought he was missing out on being a ring BEAR. Trying not to grin too much, I explained that he would still be stuck in his regular suit in that position, at which he was much mollified……I, however, laughed for about a week. And I am, apparently, still amused by it.
I saw this headline and the whole cute scene came back to mind in a flood. So I expect to be laughing for one more week at least.
A sunny day, a yard full of friends and family, good food and a happy beautiful child. What better way to spend the day. I am a lucky person :-)
Tallulah Moon watched the world carefully and took the whole ceremony in her stride. She was very dignified when a strange woman [me] decided to fling cold water on her, for no apparent reason. Her spirit totem is Owl, and you can certainly see why. Those big round eyes missed nothing, her mind was busily processing reams and reams of information.I’m going to be interested to see how she grows and carves her path in life.
I talk with the moon, said the owl
While she lingers over my tree
I talk with the moon, said the owl
And the night belongs to me.
