This has been the most crazy busy wonderful week ever! lol Sorry I haven't been here to post but important things have been happening! The wedding of an amazing couple. My niece Neely and her (husband now) Alan. Neely is my sister ( my partner in crime.. Jan's daughter). And my brother in law Keith Since we had only boys I was lucky enough to have them share their girl with me. She's truly feels like my own. She was born when I was 13 years old and from that point on.... she has been a special special little girl to me. I'm so thankful she and my sis let me have a part in putting this wedding together. More than a few tears were shed by this Aunt I can tell you that much. It was the most beautiful, amazing day you could ever imagine. I will be sharing photos along with the projects we created for the weeding and the reception,over the next few weeks. It's been so hard waiting to share! I'm so ready to unleash the photos ... so beware. lol First off all today I wanted to share a card I created with Crafty Secrets "Creating with Vintage Illustrations" CD
This card is hybrid. The first part was done in Photoshop and printed off and then the rest was put together with stitching, buttons ect...
I have so many photo I want to share but most of them I have projects to go with. Today I'm just sharing photos from the actual wedding ceremony.
The bride.... my niece Neely
The wedding was here in NE, out doors by a lake at a cabin owned by a dear friend of Neely and Alan's. Neely and Alan did live here in NE, but moved to LA a few years ago so that Alan could pursue his career working in the film industry.
We could not have asked for a more beautiful day!!!!
This is a photo Alan took... looking up at everyone, towards the cabin. There was chairs on the different levels for seating, and then we had a old suitcase painted pink set out that was filled with vintage table cloths for sitting on. It had a banner sign I made, hanging from it that said "extra seating".
Some photos I snapped before the ceremony when the photographer was taking photos.
I'm telling you what... she has some true blue friends... these girls chipped in and helped with anything and everything, where ever they were needed all weekend.
We had filled little multi colored paper chevron bags with bio degradable confetti circles, instead of rice. I was pretty.
In my next post I'll show you what we did for the inside of the cabin décor. We served some food... Shrimp... veggies, ect after the ceremony since it was at 2:30 and then reception wasn't until 7pm in Omaha about 45 min away. There was lots going on, but my sis knocked it out of the park with her planning! It was amazing!
Highlight .... being asked to be a witness and sign the wedding license.
Like I said....... Perfect day.... my heart is full!!!
Thanks for letting me share!
