Now, to tell a story in photos...265 to be exact would bore anyone to tears except perhaps the people that are in them, so I've decided to post several photos a day over the next week. This way first of all, your computers won't crash and burn and second, to keep a bit of interest...I hope!
above is their original cake topper from 1950
above, a poem I made and framed for the cake table
above, 60 years later and still smiling!
above, my $1.00 garage sale table. Sanded and repainted. Cute huh?
above the "outdoor living room" with the furniture Mark and I built.
The vintage colors and feel were in keeping with the years between 1930 and 1950.
My MIL was born in 1930 and married in 1950.
The bench is the Eastlake DIY project
Mark and I built from an old bed.
The chairs, Mark built from a pattern he has.
above buffet area with a lovely spread and my slow cooker!
My husband is so cleaver to get power way out there!
above, antique silver wrapped with the couple's wedding portrait.
My friend Lori and I made these from silver passed down from my grandmother and her great-grandmother. Thank you my "sister-friend" I couldn't have done it without you!
I scanned the original photo of the bride and groom from July 29th, 1950 then printed wallet size photo copies and tied them on with silk ribbon.
I made this bouquet from my vintage watering can.
"She's" looking pretty for the buffet table...
