I still can't quite believe it, in fact it's really quite cute!
After panicking the day prior to the wedding due to a hurricane coming over the Florida Keys and sweeping through Miami....arrgh! It all went super well, especially since the hurricane blew itself out before it reached Cocoa Beach and we reaped the benefits of the gloriously good weather that followed. It was silly hot for the whole of the holiday never got much below 86 at night and pushed 110 most days, nice.
The pictures I'm showing are what my dad took, the professional ones won't be ready for another couple of weeks but never fear I'll post some of those when I get them, they're bound to be fabulous as the photographer was great.
You can see in the photo's that I didn't get round in the end to making my own wedding dress so my daddy bought me one! You can however see the end results of the dresses made for 'Little Miss H' and my neice using the gorgeous Anna Maria Horner Voiles. Oh I just remembered on the voile front that a mere 2 days before we went away I managed to get hold of a lovely selection of the dobby dot voile line that never really made it to the UK. I just happened to look on Saints and Pinner at the right moment as they received a small unexpected amount from their supplier. I think it was the only ever UK stock so was snapped up in a few hours! I will post pictures of this rareity in the near future, I promise as it really is to die for.
Now where was I? Oh yes, as ever a last minute nightmare ensued! When we tried the finished dresses on the girls they were huge even though I'd made the correct sizes and they measured up correctly when finished!! Holly wore hers on the big side on the day as she wouldn't let me tack the straps to make them shorter!! It really was no big deal though as it was majorly hot on the beach. The night before we flew I was up into the wee hours making my neices simple sundress out of the leftover fabrics as the original was just huge on her!!! At least she'll have that one for next summer....
On my return I had a nice suprise from Kerry over at VeryKerryBerry. I'd won her giveaway of a scrap bag and a mini pincushion, how cool. I'll post pictures of the winnings very soon along with pictures of the wonderful wedding gifts 'Mr.G' and I received from some very generous and lovely bloggy friends.
Now I must dash and attend to the mountainous cleaning task that our humble abode requires, I knew there was a reason I didn't want to leave the teenagers in charge for 3 weeks........
