    Rocky Mountain Wedding

    My daughter got married in an old church high in the Rocky Mountains. I made her dress from lace I bought for that purpose 32 years ago. She wore cowboy boots. The bridal party was a Bassett Hound and children. The girls wore patchwork dresses.

    I promise not to buy any more fabric until I see something I really like. Or it's on sale. Or I think it might match something.

    ​The pictures made me smile. The one with her on the swing needs to be titled simply...JOY.

    What a happy time. The lace you saved is really wonderful. My daughters received special gowns from me also.

    Lovely! Looks like a beautiful wedding on a lovely day. My daughter wore cowboy boots too! But it was under a traditional puffy dress.

    How lovely...you thought ahead to buy the lace, she thought enough of you to wear the dress - which seems perfect for the setting. Charming pictures.
