My little sister surprised everyone by getting married this past weekend! I was privy to the planning process - dress selection and fittings, accessory choices, and I saw the rings as they were being designed. Everyone else found out post ceremony - including the parents.
As I waited to see her in the dress at each fitting, I happily took in the decor of the shop. Pretty girly items were placed throughout.
This was my view each time I waited while she stepped into the dress. The consultant helped her with buttons as the pregnant sister sipped water from a champagne glass. (I so miss wine....)
Did I mention that I love sparkly chandeliers?
We found some beautiful ivory lace at a fabric store, and the seamstress made this wonderful bolero.
As they had a Vegas wedding, she wore a stunning pair of cobalt blue suede shoes. Did I mention that she was given away by Elvis?
PS. When she was a little girl my Mom made her promise to wait until she was 30 to get married. It's funny how life plays out. I made no such promises which is why I married at 25. (My sister and her Husband went on their first date while my Husband and I were in Cuba getting married.)
