and the bride with her dad, about to walk down the "aisle"
say that it was a picture-perfect day...the weather was glorious, the food sublime, the ceremony throat-catching, and the bride most beautiful. Her dress, made by a seamstress friend of hers, was ivory charmeuse with a lot of lace that has been in my family for a long time.Lots of music, toasts, wine, dancing,
(even moi!). Truly a day to remember!
And the MOB outfit? I don't yet have a full length picture, but here is the jacket
You can see a little sliver of them here, and the backside, here:
along with the ECCO sandals I wore in a light gold. The wedding was largely on the grass or on the gravel driveway, so flat shoes were a necessity.
Both the jacket and the top were lined with a luscious orangey-red stretch silk charmeuse from Emma One Sock; it was heaven to wear. The pants were underlined with silk organza and the jacket was underlined with a wonderful top-quality lightweight fusible from Pam Erney at Fashion Sewing Supply. She was her usual fabulously helpful self in advising me what innards to use.
It was a beautiful event, and I'm glad it's over...it has been at least 6 months of hard work preparation, and now we can get back to our lovely lives. The Bride and Groom flew off to New York today, for a two-week honeymoon.
