My Son's Wedding

I thought I would post a couple of pictures of my son's wedding in the N W USA last week. He has married a wonderful American girl who he has had leave behind while she waits for her UK Visa to be issued, (hopefully about 4-5 weeks). We went over to the USA for two weeks and have just about recovered from the journey and time difference. Her parents really made us feel at home and we saw some beautiful countryside while we were there.
Incidently I made all 4 waistcoats in Lilac Silk Dupion and the Bride's Bolero in Ivory satin to match her dress.

The Bride and Groom 

                The Bride and Groom with th Best Man (Grooms Brother) and Bridesmaid (Brides best friend)

With both sets of Parents (Grooms father, Brides Mother, Bride and Groom, Brides father and Me)

This is the Parchment Craft card I made for them. It took many hours and 2 or 3 goes to get it right. It is an 8" square card so quite large. The pattern is one I found in a Parchment Craft Magazine and I mounted it on purple pearlescent card. The theme for the wedding was Butterflies and Dragonflies in purple and green.
