Glad it wasnt too wet after Friday!
I have only just seen your blog, I had a little moment when I saw your 4 kids... I too have 2 girls and 2 boys although they are still very young, so I saw a brief glimpse of my future.

Rose Petals & Blooms said...

Oh my goodness Alison! You look stunning as the mother of the bride!! What a wonderful day for all of you~ The sun always manages to peek out when it knows a beautiful bride is ready to walk down the aisle!

I had to smile when I saw the photo of Max giving his speech.. the old saying is true, behind every man, there's a strong woman! You are his rock, that is why he needed you there...

What will you do with all of your free time now, since preparing the wedding has been 24-7 for so long? lol.. I'm sure you'll be back to creating, they'll have to pry you away!

Thank you so much for sharing your families special day with us, and giving us front row seats!

Big hugs to you,
