My sweet niece got married this weekend. That's where I've been, my daughter came home for her cousin's wedding all the way from Alabama (LOVED havin' her home!) and we loaded Sally up on a car-hauler and headed north to a little paradise carved out in the middle of the north woods for a beautiful wedding. It was a beautiful wedding, indeed, and a beautiful bride, handsome groom, and lots of work by family and loved ones to make this day special.
One of my contributions was Sally for the retro theme of the wedding and I must mention that Jamie took all these (and more! She shot 500 altogether!) photos and my younger sister Pam did all the gorgeous flowers....we kissed Jamie good-bye and said our tearful farewells this morning and life will get back to normal now (boo hoo!), but I thought you might like to see the wedding photos. I don't think Sally has ever looked so good as she did on Saturday, but she wasn't the only one! My niece, the bride, her sister who was the maid of honor, and my sister Mary looked so beautiful, too and I was so proud of Mary for working so hard to make this wedding so special and make Autumn's dreams come true...great job, Mary and Ken!
Clint & Autumn....on their special day.
Looking forward to marriage...
The just married sign here was made to look retro and it was so adorable!

A beautiful day and a beautiful place for a wedding....a little paradise in the pines! My handsome nephew Casey, (the bride's brother) and his wife, Ashley are the second couple in from the right hand side.
The groom is on the far right and his groomsmen...
My other niece, Autumn's sister Katie, is on the left, third in...I swear she looked like she was 12 going on twenty that day...she's too cute!
Some retro sunglasses in raspberry....
Best of luck to you in your marriage, Autumn and Clint!
Sweet sisters...Katie was Autumn's maid of honor!
The parents of the bride. I have to say this: my sister looked so wonderful that day and she worked SO HARD and made everything so beautiful!
Little McKenzie, the most beautiful little flower girl EVER.
She's the perfect little poser...smiling for the camera and for her daddy!
The tent, all ready for the reception...all of the tissue paper flowers hanging were made by the bride and her helpers!
The Sweetheart Sweet Shoppe Candy Bar: my sister created this and each guest filled a small box to take home for a wedding favor!
All floral arrangments were in thrifted milk-glass vases, my sister Pam did all the gorgeous arrangements, she's very talented.
Mini sweetheart roses and hydrangeas were the flowers chosen.
The bride made all those in her wedding party these matching necklaces with a bracelet!
Saying their vows...starting a NEW LIFE and a NEW FAMILY: God bless them!
