Love Is In The Details
Short post today. I had a meeting last night and a big game tonight. Maybe you could use a bit of a break anyway. The reception post will have to wait until the weekend.
I'm adding just a few pictures of some of the smaller details: the fun stuff, sweet stuff, and downright sentimental stuff.
Someone asked me what K's colors were for her wedding. Hmmm...the maid of honor wore a deep purple, table runners were green and brown, there were pumpkins, apples, branches, lots of candles in glass, and we all wore pink shoes. I think "outdoors" was the theme, with a bit of the bride's favorite pink.
That crazy maid of honor is in the 3-4 inch heels on the left. The bride and I wore kitten heels. We're older and more sensible. I bet you can guess who stayed in their heels the longest! Oh, and I bet you can guess whose toes are the least decorated. (That would be the really old, sensible one!)
K's only concern with the cake was the cake topper. She wanted to use the topper that had been on her Grandma and Grandpa's cake 60 some years ago. The Mr. and I had found it years ago in a box of his family's old photos. It still had net and a bit of dried icing on it when we found it. We cleaned it up and displayed it on a shelf for years. K had it put on the top of her wedding cake and included her grandparents wedding picture on the table. You can see it on the right.
And here is Grandma seeing the cake, topper, and her picture with Grandpa. I think she was touched by K's tribute. It was just another link to the generations that have gone before. And the circle remains unbroken...
