I mentioned before that my beautiful niece Natalie is getting married soon. Well, tomorrow is the big day!
Family has arrived from out of town, dresses have received the final nip and tuck, the church is being decorated and there is a sense of excitement in the air.
I love weddings and usually need to bring a tissue. I think this will definitely be a two tissue event for me. I can’t imagine how many I will need at my own child’s wedding! I remember the day our sweet Nat was born. We have watched her grow up to be a lovely young lady. She picked a guy that fits her like a hand in a glove and in the short time we’ve know Adrian, we have grown to love him as well.
Since weddings are on my mind, I took a peek through my pictures and have a few to share.
These pictures of my parents are great- so young and happy. They were driven around town on the chassis of an old car. I love the red roses and dad’s white socks!
Here are their going away outfits. So stylish. Mom and dad married on September 13, 1958 and are still having fun and in love!
This was the first wedding I ever attended. I was the flower girl and I only remember a few things. I loved my gold satin dress. I loved everyone looking at me and I got very tired at the reception.
Steve and I were married 29 (gasp!) years ago. What a beautiful day. Boy, we were young! After all these years, I can’t imagine being with anybody else, through thick and thin.
My brother married two years later. His beautiful bride Shelley looked amazing in her aunt’s vintage wedding gown but it was a very hot day and she almost melted. They just celebrated their 27th wedding anniversary. Congrats!
My sister wore our mother’s gown on her own wedding day. The gown had been sold (my parent’s needed the money) and we tracked it down to return it to my mother on her 25th wedding anniversary. In the end, that dress was worn by four different brides!
Tomorrow, my sister will be the mother-of-the-bride. She and her husband Norb will welcome one more son into their family. Can’t wait for the festivities to begin! I have my camera ready!
Couldn’t resist one more picture. My sweet sister and me with all that hair. We were rockin’ the 80’s! (Where did I put those hot rollers?)
