Everyone at the wedding loved my grandma-in-law. Roberta Jo (or Bobbie Jo) is so cute and sweet, and just lovely all around. By the time I was 16 all of my grandparents had passed away, so to now be 32 and inherit a grandma by marriage makes me elated! Especially one so sweet, kind, and fun as G-ma (as her grand kids call her).
When Mary (my mother-in-law) and Gma were here back in April, we went to a fabric store and items were purchased for Gma to make the pillow for our ring bearer in our wedding. I was thrilled to have a personal homemade item be included in our wedding! I myself am not crafty whatsoever, and both Mary and Gma can pretty much do it all. When I saw the pillow the week of the wedding I cried. The details are gorgeous, and it was perfect. Gma was super worried (I have no idea why!?) I wouldn't like it. But I love it!
After the wedding I wanted to find a way to preserve some of my bouquet. I love my flowers and didn't want all of them to go in the trash. I somehow thought of the idea of doing a shadow box and adding some of the other day wedding day details. I got this rather large frame at Target and put this together. I thought it would be difficult to fill, but it could have been bigger!
Funny story about our escort cards. When I was packing everything in a plastic bin a few days before the wedding it was at that moment I noticed "Sweatheart Table" on our cards, rather than "Sweetheart Table". Chris didn't even notice until I pointed it out to him while we were eating dinner at the reception. It was a super funny moment.
A cute mention of the note Chris wrote me. He wrote on a cocktail napkin from the Westin a little note, formatted like an email.
He had the "To", "From", "Subject" and date/time listed. He had Cheyenne our flower girl deliver it to me in my suite while we were getting ready. He then gave me a card once we got to our hotel room after the reception.
