Wedding FUN!

These pictures are from Beth and Christian's wedding in March. Beth's Mom, Nina, and I went to jr high and high school together many moons ago. Thanks to facebook, we have gotten back in touch with each other and get together with our families - definitely the plus side of fb!

Nina made this pillow for the wedding - the fabric is from her wedding gown, the lace from her grandmother, and the silver ribbon was from her Mother.  Unfortunately, her Mother died last year - see this post.  She was a very special lady and has been greatly missed by her friends and family.

Now this was no traditional wedding, what fun it was!  Not that weddings aren't fun, but this one was unique!  Beth and Christian had their second date at the ballpark so that's what made this so special for them.  They had the wedding ceremony and reception at Camden Yards, home to the Baltimore Orioles.  The room was overlooking the field, how cool!  This was just before the season started, so it was quiet down there - can't say that about the wedding!

There was baseball fare food, popcorn, cotton candy, cracker jacks, hotdogs, hamburgers, and other wonderful goodies - what a feast!  Fun facts - the guys wore black Converse Chuck Taylor shoes with pink shoelaces, Christian had a lego guy on his lapel and Beth had a lego girl tucked in her bouquet, the wedding cake top was a baseball cake with Mario and Princess Peach on it, and the tables all had a team pennant with flowers as a centerpiece.  It was a memorable afternoon and quite the doubleheader wedding and reception!

Fun on the field!
Kiss me quick! 
Watch out, you'll have a couple of these guys soon enough!

Such a beautiful couple, wishing them all the best for a wonderful life together!
The honeymooners at Disney - love those ears!

We had the family over this past weekend and Beth got a snuggle from Nathan - he still loves her even though she married somebody else!
I finished these cute little wedding bells for the newlyweds, but haven't decided if I'm adding their names or initials or something else.  Any thoughts?

Wonderful pictures. Seems like it was a beautiful wedding. The wedding bells are gorgeous. I don't know if you should add anything, but maybe their initials? and the date? Happy stitching weekend.
