My Son's Wedding Day

Wednesday, March 06, 2013

Hope you enjoy our family's special day!
This is Taylar's Mother's wedding dress---a lovely tradition!

She needed the high heels so Michael could kiss her at the end---LOL
During the ceremony, they poured the colored sand into the box to signify the blending of the 2 into one.
Watching the guests arrive. My mom being escorted down the aisle. Hard to believe that a month later she was in the hospital with a stroke---she is doing better---coming to my house this weekend to stay for a while.
This is ME! and my dh is behind me---LOL
Walking down the aisle
No tears---which was a surprise---and they both looked so happy saying their vows.
This is something new---guests coming in put their thumbprints on a tree and then signed the bottom.
I will do a another blog of the reception and the bubbles another day. Hope you enjoyed our event.

    Lovely photos, Cathy! I adore your dress and I WANT it! Purple is a good color on me and that style too :) FYI--I love hand-me downs too! ;)))))

I want to see the group shot too, as soon as you get more pics posted.

Your mother looks great and who'd have suspected that she was soon to have a stroke? My grandfather attended my brother's wedding and then passed away in his sleep a week later. We really need to cherish every day and not take anything for granted.

    You got some AWESOME pics!!! SO great that you're able to share them with us -- and that you took the TIME to do so!! I KNOW it's hard to upload all those photos!

LOVE the shot of her/her mom's dress on the door! Really shows off the train etc...

Those shoes are quite something! Does she have any trouble walking in heels like that?? Or is she used to it?? I would have been worried I'd end up falling on my face if that were me at my wedding!!! LOL...

And that box is BEYOND cool! LOVE their names being on it -- and hadn't seen anything like that before! I've heard/seen of people using sand into a bottle or vase type thing -- but never a box -- and such a neat one like theirs!!

Wonderful pic of your mom! And isn't THAT true -- about who would have known a month later what you'd be facing??! Sadly, that was the case with my wedding also -- my one grandma died the Monday after we were married on Friday....then my OTHER grandma died within 6 months of my wedding... Just never know -- better NOT to know I think!! In the meantime you can be SO grateful you have that beautiful pic -- and the memories of that happy time -- prior to your mom's stroke!! Good reminder to NEVER take anything for granted, isn't it??

YOU were one GORGEOUS mother-of-the-groom!!!!! Beautiful dress -- great color and it looked WONDERFUL on you! Who is that escorting you and DH down the aisle??

Do you have any family pics you're going to be posting??! Can't wait to see the purple shirts etc!! Or didn't anyone but DH wear one of those??

Neat idea about the "fingerprint tree"... I've actually seen that before -- but as a "keepsake going away" gift... Someone arranged to have something similar done for a person that was retiring from my workplace... Were the fingerprints blue and pink?? Couldn't tell for sure.. If so, were they supposed to use pink if they were Taylar's friend/family then blue for Michael's "side"?? Or not?? Was curious...

THANKS again for sharing your special day with us!!!!

    You look beautiful in your dress !! And yes hard to believe your mom is dealing with her medical issues as such. Beautiful pics, the sand ceremony was done at my niece's wedding - but the tree with prints and signatures kewl !! Can't wait to see more !

    I love the photos!! And I haven't heard of the sand thing--we did a special candle with one wick higher than the other two--we were two people still but part of a whole. I like the sand as well.

YOU are beaming in the photo--and look just lovely!!

    Wow, what a day. Proud mama.

That is some dress. What a train! Look what Reagann has to look forward to! And I love the pink shoes! Too high for me now though. Maybe that should be a goal for me to lose weight.

My son had the sand, but they poured it into a vase. And I love the thumbprint thing. Maybe you should have the police check it to see if anyone is 'wanted'. LOL. Actually, I hope everyone there was wanted by someone.

Thanks for sharing. I'll have to keep that tree in mind. I still have 2 at home, although Pete would love to find someone. And I want Mic to concentrate on college, not boys right now.
