The Wedding...Part 1...The Church...





We thought the day would never get here...

But...

When it did...

everything was wonderful!

Miss V's dress was a dream...I crocheted her a wee shrug, as the day was on the cool side... 

Unfortunately she did not wear it...she needed something warmer...but it sure was cute!

My boyfriend and our oldest daughter Lissa...

Aren't they just the cutest!!

Me and my two daughters before the ceremony...

I am so proud of these gals...they are my best friends!!
 

Miss V and her Auntie Lissa...

And with her Papa below...💞
 


Isn't the church lovely....
 

 The pics without my initials were taken by my son-in-law Jeff...
He was the Best Man...and what a great job he did!





Miss V looked like Cinderella all dressed up for the ball...

Her friend Sam, was the ring bearer...isn't he just the cutest thing??? 

His Mommy was a bridesmaid...a very dear friend of the Bride Anna and my daughter Erika...

Anna made Miss V her bracelet and necklace...cute! 


Anna's dress was spectacular...

So simple...but so beautiful...her hair looked fabulous too!!

And my son...handsome as ever 💞
 



 Miss V's bouquet...aren't the colours wonderful?


My 3 beautiful children...💞

I couldn't ask for any better...... 




 I hope you are all well...

This post took me forever to do...hard to choose...don't want to bore you!

I will post again this week...and feature the reception...

It was held at The Royal Botanical Gardens in Burlington...

What a gorgeous place it is!!

Boyfriend and I are going to drive to the good old cottage tomorrow...

Have a look around, and see what has been happening down there!!

I am SURE there are tons of leaves down...with these darn winds and cooler temps...

Enjoy your evening...

        Cheers!  :o)

  6. An excellent selection of pictures Linda! You have a beautiful family, and that little Miss V very nearly stole the show ;) Love the bride's dress! She is beautiful! That church looks very familiar, and I'm wondering if I was there for a wedding on my husband's side years ago. The walk up the aisle must have looked like miles to the adorable ring bearer and flower girl. Love the shot of them (so tiny!) walking up together. Enjoy your time at the cottage ... soon time to close it up?

  12. Lovely, lovely pictures, Linda! Thank you so much for sharing with us. You have a beautiful family. It is so interesting to see pics of your children, odd that we bloggers share so few but in this case, wow, yours are just so handsome. I think Lissa favors you very much. And all look so spectacular on this special day. Miss V? Just want to squeeze her!!! And you, exquisite! Boyfriend...distinguished looking as always!

    SO...off you go to the cottage...relax, regroup and see you soon!

  13. Everything is Beautiful, Linda. I loved every bit of it, and Miss V, so adorable in her white with pearls, and the little ring-bearer - both so cute walking together. Love the bride's dress too, so classic and sculptural, and her hair is lovely. You look so chic, and your two daughters as well; they get it from their Mum. It is indeed a beautiful church, and a special day. Looking forward to seeing the reception.

  17. Everyone looks so beautiful (and handsome) and the bride is stunning. Miss V is adorable along with the ring bearer. Love that pic of them walking down the aisle and the one of the boy at the altar. The flowers are gorgeous! I'm glad everything worked out so beautifully for your son's special day Linda. I'm sure it was a whirlwind along with the windy weather outside! Hugs. Pam

  21. Lovely photos of your son's wedding, Linda! Such a beautiful, loving family :) Love the shrug you made for Miss V, and doesn't she look like a little angel!?! The bride is lovely and your son is so tall and handsome. Weddings are such a happy time to celebrate all the hopes and dreams of the new couple and be there to wish them all the best. Everyone looks so wonderful. There's nothing like family. Sending hugs xo Karen
