Two summers ago a young couple in love wanted to get married. Money was tight, so some friends got together and threw them a beautiful wedding, on half a shoestring budget...Really, there was no budget, just four friends and the desire to make this young couple's wedding a wonderful day they would always remember. The young couple are Vee and Steve, my dear friend Carmella's son and daughter in law. Our generous friend Jeanie, gave us the run of her beautiful home and garden. Dearest Adeline and Deacon Ed, officiated. (We recently lost dear Ed, and miss him so...) Carmella took care of a million things... and the catering, and I took care of all the foo fooing. (I think foo fooing is Polish for, make pretty;-)
All the flowers (except for the fresh flowers on the tables) were silk. The couple had another ceremony at home, and wanted to reuse all the bouquets and corsages.
I took the arbor out of the ground at home, and layered on the tulle and flowers. Jeanie's yard is THE place for a beautiful garden wedding. The weather was picture perfect... It was a beautiful day.
A very happy day for Vee and Steve... The reason I'm reminded of this lovely day, is because Vee and Steve recently had a very special addition to their family...
A brand new baby boy! Welcome Malachi, welcome to the world. Your Mom and Dad and Sister and Brother will take good care of you, and love you very much. Grandma Carmella, once she gets her arms around you, well, we may never get her back home. God bless this young family and may they live happily ever after!
