#484 Weddings.

I love weddings. LOVE them. I’m a little embarrassed to admit that I’ve been reading everything on the royal wedding leading up to today (purely work research, of course). My mama has always talked about watching Princess Diana’s wedding and I, like her, have developed a fascination with the royal family too.
So Mallorie, Jim and I woke up at 4:30 this morning to watch the greatest televised wedding event of our lifetime.
She only fell asleep after they said their vows.
Me and Jimbo were in it for the long haul.
Okay, it’s completely cheesy to be so excited by it, but I liked the feeling of knowing that we were a part of this thing that people all around the world were doing at that very same moment—watching two people commit to love each other forever. Ain’t love grand?
Oh yeah. I’m crushing on Kate pretty hard. Isn’t she just adorable?
After a late-morning nap, I spent the afternoon getting ready for another wedding—Sara-Claire and Khiron’s! I got a taste of what tonight would bring when we designed her wedding invitation suite, but I never had any idea what we were really in for. Everything about the wedding was a sensory delight. The ceremony was inspired by the theatrics of Baz Luhrmann musicals, with extravagant floral arrangements, pillar candles burning on every flat surface, and a huge, gold ballroom chandelier above the stage. I’ve definitely never experienced anything like this wedding:
The bride’s mama, a wedding florist, made all the bouquets from fresh roses, peonies and vintage brooches. Sara-Claire’s had 2 tiny crowns tucked in the bouquet in honour of Kate and William. How cute is that?
Hopey’s next up to become the bride!
My handsome date did the opening prayer and welcome.

Love that guy!

Mr. and Mrs. Harris

Boy, I miss the Nowells when they’re gone. Look how good our group looks with them!

If that doesn’t take your breath away, nothing could.

And they all lived happily ever after!
