Last Minutes Things To Do

Taking care of last minute things for the wedding.  Jess wanted to check a few things off her list, so I'm helping her until the big day arrives.  She is having **sparklers** at her wedding (isn't that a fun idea), and I've been looking all over for a pretty bucket to put them in.  She will fill the bucket with sand first to hold the sparklers.


She wanted to have gold sugar around the rim of the champagne glasses when she does the "wedding toast" at the reception.   I found some, and it's going to look so pretty.


We are all gathering at my house to get ready for the wedding.  I bought seven champagne glasses and this peach sparkling wine for a toast before.   I thought of my girl, Nel, when I came across this wine, as she just moved to Georgia, the Peach state.



Jess and her bridesmaids all met in beautiful San Diego for the Bachelorette Party.   They had a great time.  Here's the Maid of Honor.  ; )

 

Nel got these darling shirts for the bridemaids to wear, and a special white one for the bride.



My dear Jess, amongst all the fun, magic, glitter, and fancy,  please take a few moments each day and remember the sweet love you have with Brian.  Nothing fancy, nothing elaborate, just real.  ~mom

Sheri, Things will work out beautifully. Those shirts are so cute. It is going to be a wedding full of beautiful people. Do you feel a bit melancholy? Your little girls is so grown now. We know they must fly, we just hope they do not fly too far from our arms. Blessings, love you girl, xoxo, Susie

Such a sweet and happy time - preparing for the special day! Love all the charming preparations - the gold glitter glasses are going to be wonderful :) The wedding of a daughter brings out so many nostalgic memories of when they were small, but now you can bask in the glow of all your hard work, Sheri! A beautiful daughter starting her new life, with a solid foundation of love. Hugs xo Karen

Oh, the gold sugar and the peach wine are beautiful and unique, and what a pretty wedding it will be. Last year we attended a wedding with sparklers: it was great fun, and they looked gorgeous in the garden after sunset!

Well, this is it for the girls, isn't it! Your son is left, and maybe one day, his day will come. But for now, enjoy seeing the cycle of your life advance and come right back to you. Lovely photos of a truly happy time. I sure wish we could talk again my friend...

This is so exciting! I especially love the idea of the gold rim on the toast! You must be a combo of smiling and frazzed every single second! (I remember that time!)

Oh those are real sparklers, I remember those. Everything is so beautiful and I love quirky quotes like the flamingos. You must be a bundle of emotion since the time is almost here.

I have been a wedding vender (Photographer) in the area for twenty five years and I have never been treated so well by a wedding venue like I was at this place. I am usually taken care of as a "last on the list" at venues, which I understand where the bride, groom and guest come first but the entire staff at DC wedding venues from the minute I walked in the door treated me so well.
