Here Comes the Br. . .

You know what? Let's just change the subject, shall we? My friends' visit, plus the supportive, encouraging, sympathetic comments from so many readers has me ready to move on. And I had promised to show you my daughter's wedding dress. We still haven't got the official photos, but these are some I took as she prepped, with her girlfriends' help, in the room beforehand.
Well, prepped and preened and vamped . . .
A simple silk dress with its own drama (see above!), it suited her perfectly. I never did manage to get a shot of the whole dress, but the groom's brother took this lovely, evocative shot of them moving to sign their paperwork. I love the light in this photo and hope (quite confidently) that the professional photographer has several of these. You can see the dress's mermaid-ish flaring here fairly well.

Perhaps you'll forgive a proud mama for saying her grown-up baby girl looks rather beautiful. . .

  7. So beautiful. And individual. And warm. It all comes through. Good mom, I say. It's a life's work, after all. As Jackie O said, if you're kids don't turn out alright, nothing else really matters. I'm with her.

  11. My daughter is only 5, but I can only imagine what it must feel like for you to look at your daughter and think, "I made that!" She is stunning and that dress is the epitome of elegance and was perfectly suited to her figure! Congratulations proud mom! -Hope

  14. Forgive your for gushing over your daughter? Absolutely! She is radiant and lovely. Both of your daughters are radiant and lovely.

    I hope this isn't too out of bounds, but this bride is giving Pippa a run for her money in terms of looking smashing in white satin!

    Mater and Pater have created a lovely family!

  16. She not only looks beautiful, but also completely "herself". And the dress fits perfectly; was it made for her?

  17. Gina: She's loving the Pippa comparison -- and I actually have 3 lovely daughters, lucky eh?
    Tiff: Yes, can you tell I'm heel-dragging on mine?
    Duchesse: you spotted that! Yes, the same Vanc'r designer from whom she bought her prom dress 10 years ago and who designed her older sister's wedding dress. Because the lines are fairly simple, the price was v. reasonable, certainly as wedding dresses go. And it's absolutely and completely her.

I'd love to hear your response to my post. Agree, disagree, even go off on a tangent, I love to know you're out there, readers. Let's chat, shall we? I apologize, though, for the temporary necessity of the Word Verification -- spam comments have been tiresomely numerous lately, and I'm hoping to break that pattern.
