Default Carnival Glory\St Thomas Wedding May 8 2013 :)

Hey everyone, slowly working on back to reality after coming home from our wedding cruise, will start working on a review of the Glory and our contacts from St Thomas soon as I get thru the mountains of laundry lol

Short form everything was perfect, The Glory is beautiful, crew were awesome, St Thomas is absolutely gorgeous, and we've already said we are definitely going back to stay for a few days. Photos from Elisha Orin are to take a few weeks to get to us but photos from family and friends are slowly trickling in to us, one things I wish I could go back and re-do ..............ASSIGN SOMEONE MY CAMERA!! never thought to do that, but the 12 other guests took lots of photos, just patiently waiting for them to get back to reality and real life as well so they can share them.

It was quiet a trip. I did what I said and didnt leave without it. SO we were there well over 2 hours(think it was closer to 3). But I have it in hand and it fits. I can fix the rest. I am glad you had a great day! I wish you all the happiness in the world!

Default Bouquets and Bout's and ring boxes... oh my :)

So patiently waiting for my pics to come from the photographer but thought I'de start some of our May 8th Carnival St Thomas wedding review with pics of bouquets and such.

Had the brilliant (?) idea to make my own brooch bouquet, after seeing a pic of one, and then seeing the price to have one made was sure I could come up with something.

The flowers came from Michaels as well as tape and wrap, brooches came from old jewelry boxes, some from friends and some from ebay, I used ivory satin to wrap the handle.

My daughter made hers as well and she used a blue hydrangea, I had told her she could pick any brooches she wanted as this was something for her to keep forever, she chose birds, with one octopus lol and wrapped the handle in blue satin.

At this point I thought hey why not try making bou'ts as well...so made matching ones with some shells and small flowers
one for my groom and one for my son... they both loved the chain!
For a ring "pillow" we wanted different and since it was the Caribbean, what comes to mind but pirates and treasure chests....We bought 2 at a dollar store and proceeded to stain one and then wrapped foam with blue velvet with a cut thru the center for the rings to sit. Then added in lockets with pictures of our parents who have passed on, but this was our way of having them close
