Wonderful Wedding

I can't believe that our big day has come and gone in a flash! It was 18 months in the planning and one day in the performance! Never-the-less it was the most beautiful day (including the weather!), everything went according to plan with no major disasters, and a great time was had by all.

I think you will agree that Charlie (short for Charlotte) was a beautiful bride. Her tatted headdress showed up fantastically against her dark hair. Those of you who have followed my blog will know that Charlie has battled breast cancer and the pictures show how much her hair has grown in a short space of time! I think you will also agree that she looks a picture of health now, thanks to modern medicine, and her own inimitable determination to be recovered in time for her wedding day. Her only disappointment was that she could not wear her wedding veil that I had made with the beaded tatted edge, her hair was too short and too fine to hold it in place. I edged it with hens and chicks design, which I had also done on the tiers of the wedding cake to match it.

The caterers had assembled the cake by the time we arrived at the reception. The tiers were supposed to be sitting directly one on top of the other, but as it looked so nice the way they had done it, we left it as it was!

You're right she was beautiful. I hope this is the beginning of a long and happy marriage.

Yes, your daughter in law is a very beautiful bride! Gee, everyone is so happy in these pictures. But I love the legs of the young lady in the second to the last picture. She's a young thing too. She looks like she writes books & is ready to kick up the high step with the young men in the picture with her. So glad to see that you are feeling much better!

Thank you! Thank you! to everyone! They certainly do look happy and they were both smiling all day long!
I was very pleased to be standing on my own two feet. My surgery came at the right time, enough recovery time for me to really enjoy the day.

Thank you Linda for sharing the joyous occasion with us all!

I'm sorry that Charlie has battled Breast cancer, and yet so happy that she seems to be doing very well. Her hair is so cute like that!! and your tatting was picture perfect for the perfect wedding!

If I ever get married, I hope that my wedding would be as beautiful as hers (and that I would look as beautiful a bride as she)

Congratulations to all ~ may they have a full, wonderful life together!
