My hubby and I are celebrating our 10 year anniversary this year! 10 years ago today we were married. The day was fabulous despite it raining so very hard and so very much.
I thought I would share the details of our day. I know this is wedding season so very timely too! :-)
I loved my invitations, funny they matched my flowers so well. I totally didn't plan this at all just fell in love with the colors. My veil and tiara were from my Mom, she wore these on her wedding day. My flowers were a mixture of roses, lambs ear and I can't remember the other blue flower. The lambs ear has significance. I used to spend some time on my grandmother's farm during the summers. While she was gardening I can remember sitting and stroking the lambs ear. So soft and such a pretty silver green color. I had to have them in my wedding bouquet!
My sweet flower girls are grown up and teenagers now. They were my 2nd cousins. I made their dresses and loved the lines of the dress.
The first photo is of my Mom and Sister. I thought my Mom's dress was just stunning, the photo doesn't do it justice. The color of my bridesmaid dresses were a great blue, all the girls looked so great in the color. Just like all brides I thought they could wear the dress again, but yeah no not so much! :-)
The photo on the top right was me throwing my bouquet . .no there wasn't an accident. I designed the bouquet to come apart. It was made up of smaller bouquets that each had a "fortune" tied to it and came apart in mid air. Was a fun surprise!
The middle photo is a picture of my father-in-law and mother-in-law. My Mother-in-law's dress was also perfect and flattering.
My cake was just divine! Very simple in decoration, which is why I like it. The beauty of it was inside! It was a flour-less chocolate cake with a raspberry filling! YUMMO!
My wedding rings are still my all time favorite jewelry. I still look at them in awe, my hubby did such a great job selecting not only the ring but also the diamond itself.
Hope you enjoyed my stroll down memory lane. Sorry for the bad quality images, didn't have digital copies, so they had to be scanned in. If you are planning your wedding I hope that you have as much fun planning as I did. Truly I can look back on the planning and want to do it all over again. I enjoyed picking out and planning this event so much.
