Something Borrowed . . .

It's a done deal -- they tied the knot! 

On Sunday, our daughter Caitlin married her young man and since they have not returned from the honeymoon trip, I don't have permission to post pictures yet. Be sure to stop in next week!

But I can tell you that the beautiful bride borrowed her mother's veil for her special day. 

Before we removed the veiling from the headpiece I wore (nearly 29 years ago!), we had some fun dressing up the younger girls - dreaming and reminiscing and sharing. At 11 years old, we were amazed at how well my gown fit her! She's growing up fast and doing a good job filling her big sisters shoes (and mama's wedding dress!) already. At 6 years old, Rebekah was in her element. She would have been happy to trounce around in it all day long.

Next week I'll share several lots TONS of photos from the wedding, including how we re-made my veil for Caitlin's special day.


  1. That is so sweet! I rented my wedding dress, but now you're making me wish I had one that my daughters could try on! :) But I did save a few other pieces, like jewelry, the sash, and gloves, so maybe my (soon-to-be) daughter can incorporate one or two of those someday in her wedding. Congrats on the big event!

    I'm Erica, btw. Thank you for your comment on my guest post today at Beauty Through Imperfection!

    1. Hello, Erica, it's so nice to meet you!
      I'm so glad you enjoyed my sentimental little post. It seems like yesterday I was welcoming our first daughter into my arms, now she's married with 3 babes of her own and my second daughter has married -- so get ready for the years to fly!
      How exciting it is to be getting ready for your little girl! I'm sure you'll find special ways to celebrate your daughter's "big day" when the time comes. In the meantime, enjoy and celebrate every day. Blessings to you and yours.
