i thought it would be fun to kick off wedding week with a few photos from my parents’ wedding. they’ve been married 45 1/2 years! they are so young in these pictures-just starting out. aren’t they cute?

my mom’s mom {my grandma} made my mom’s dress, veil and tiara. she also made the bridemaids’ dresses, the flowergirl’s dress and her own dress. and then, 34 years later, i wore my mom’s dress when i got married. we altered it just a bit {took off the sleeves and added a little lace} it was so special! you can see a few pictures of me wearing the dress here.they walked down the aisle to the wedding march. they had a white cake with white frosting. i asked my mom if she had a special memory and she said, “It was the perfect day–I felt so special and as beautiful as a princess.  I didn’t realize it then, but my parents, who had very little money, somehow managed to give me a fairy-tale wedding.”

thank you, mom and dad, for sharing a bit of your wedding day with us. i love all the handmade touches in your wedding. and i love that it was beautiful and simple. i am so thankful for each of you!

if you’re married–share a simple memory from your wedding day with us!
