Wedding Happiness!

Today I have a little wedding card to share with you!

I used the super duper cute Costumes from Wonderland set from MFT. I think she's the Queen of Hearts - but doesn't she make an adorable bride??? I don't know if you can tell in this photo, but I paper-pieced her dress with white textured dot paper. The crown is blinged up with a bit of Stickles.

I made this card for my niece Tanya and my brand new nephew Chip. They were married last weekend in Michigan - the main reason for our trip.

The wedding was in a beautiful location overlooking Lake Huron, aka My Mom's Lake. Wasn't it nice of my mom to let them use her lake as the backdrop for the wedding? :-) It was a rainy day, but thankfully the rain let up just long enough for them to have their ceremony outside as planned.

Here's my handsome boy at the wedding:

And my pretty girl!

On all the chairs were rocks, and after the ceremony we all walked down to the lake and threw our rocks into the water, after adding happy thoughts for the new couple to the rocks. This was the first thing that made this The Most Fun Wedding Ever in the eyes of my four year old. He would spend all day every day throwing rocks into lakes if I let him. Oh and two year olds love throwing rocks too, by the way. We took a quick family photo while we were down there.

Another thing that made this The Most Fun Wedding Ever? Bubbles!!

Of course there was also the entire table filled with candy, the cookies with dinner and the wedding cake. Hello, sugar high! But the kids were in heaven.

I loved the beautifully simple centerpieces on the tables at the reception - the rocks were perfect for a wedding on the lake.

They also had candles hanging from the trees - so pretty.

One last photo of me and my sweet boy before I go.

Hooray for fall weddings on Lake Huron! And congratulations to Tanya & Chip!
