… that will be in exactly one week from now, in lovely Pennsylvania.
It’s my second sister’s wedding!
I’m beyond excited.
We leave tomorrow to spend some time with the family before the wedding.
And to help as much as possible, of course.
Without giving away too many secretive details,
it’s going to be a church ceremony and garden reception.
The evening reception is what I’m dreaming of ~ the candles, the magical lighting at dusk,
the festive celebration of the Two becoming One.
Such a beautiful mystery, and even more amazing to be able to represent a much greater Picture,
that of Christ and His bride.
I think weddings are a foretaste of Heaven.
The forever of a marriage.
The celebration and excitement.
I LOVE WEDDINGS.
Zoe and Olivia will be flower girls once again, and they are thrilled.
This time they know what to expect, and they are rather proud of their little role. :)
They’ll be wearing little lace dresses…
Ervina, the bride, is as sweet as ever a woman could be. I adore her.
She’s thoughtful and sentimental, which I love about her.
Her Christmas gift to me was this:
Is that not the sweetest, most creative idea?
I was ever so delighted to accept!
The bridesmaids will each be wearing something different. I think that makes it so fun and unique.
The only stipulation was “lace and ivory/cream/blush colors.”
There were quite a few lovely lovely dreses to be found.
Namely, Downeast Basics [shown first] and Shabby Apple.
The following is a bit of fashion eye candy to me…
I bought from neither, but received inspiration from both stores and [said nervously] made my dress.
[from a goodwill sheet and yards of lace from a junk shop, she whispers with a red face.
husband was so embarassed, “we’re not that poor, he said.”]
My dress is a combination of the two center dresses.
My belt arrived just today, not day to lose, before leaving the next morning early.
And I ordered both, because I wasn’t sure which one would look the best.
The other will be given as a gift, I suppose!
And shoes! We’re to wear flats, of whatever we like. Colorful or not. I’m going with a nuetral look.
But oh, just look at the parade of shoes available!

I’m been making some of these as well…
And little Hudson needed a shirt f.or the wedding
Whoever said you can’t dress boys cute? I’m having loads of fun.
Well, he’s only been out of a sleeper once, but still. :)
Have a lovely weekend, this first of June!
