    Beautiful daughter and beautiful dress. And I am guessing that the groom is a HUNTER by chance? Where we lived in NC there were lots of camo dresses around - believe it or not.

    Just saw the last picture - BEAUTIFUL family. Happiness to them always.

    WoW! What a brave, talented, generous Grandmother YOU are! How long did you have to accomplish all of this? It would have taken me Y-E-A-R-S to do. Congratulations! Your GD is both lucky and beautiful! :thumbup:

    We went to David's Bridal in February when he first proposed. She tried on a dress similar to the one I made. They actually let us take pictures, the we immediately went to JoAnn for a pattern. Didn't start working on the dresses and all the outfits until June. Was still tweaking on the wedding dress the morning of the wedding. Wanted to get it perfect!!!

    Lovely work! I would love to know more about how you did the flowers. FYI, I'm just across the pond in Bellevue.
