A couple of months ago I showed the preparations I was making for my son’s wedding. On May 24th the event came off without a hitch, well except for one issue. More about that in a minute. Nick and Lacey were married under the apple trees of a plantation house. It was a beautiful setting. The colors were orange, hot pink and yellow. It made a striking show against the green background. Every bridesmaid wore shoes to match their bouquets. The guys got in the act against my better judgment and wore strings in the same bright colors to match the girls shoes. .
My family and I. What can I say? I carry a ball bat when I want to make a point to all the tall people in my life.
This is Nick’s heart surgeon. He and his wife joined us for the big day. Nick is 25 and Dr. Kanter did his first surgery when Nick was five days old. Dr. Kanter preformed three more surgeries then a transplant at one year old and a aorta replacement when Nick was 19. Dr. Kanter once promised me quality of life for Nick. I think a wedding might qualify.
These are two of Nick’s nurses. The one in pink came all the way across the US to be at the wedding. Both took care of Nick when he was a baby. These are extra ordinary ladies.
My niece made the cake. Each rose was hand done and looked real. She did an amazing job.
Now for the cutest people there. My grandkids. I finished Anndee’s dress the week before the wedding. I even sewed during my Tuesday night critique group meeting. Alex was our one glitch for the day. He pulled a hot iron down on his arm the morning of the wedding. He burned his entire hand up to his elbow. Ouch! After seeing the doctor and having a wrap put on, his mother made it to the wedding venue on time. Alex wasn’t his most active self but he sure was dressed well.
It was a happy day and the honeymooners are doing well.
