Real Weddings: Kirstie and Mike

Hello everyone!
Is everyone ready for the holidays? I know I'm ready for Thanksgiving, but not looking forward to Black Friday. Let the crazy hours begin!
It's time for another real wedding post before the craziness of the holidays hit.
Kirstie is my best friend, has been since our senior year of high school. Today is actually her birthday too! We instantly clicked and have been friends ever since. Even though we are no longer in high school, we live thousands of miles away, and both have babies, every time we talk, it's like we've never been apart.
I've seen Kirstie go through some of the hardest times in her life and she has always pushed through. She's one of the strongest woman I have ever met. I could hear the joy in her voice and see it in her face whenever she was with Mike or talked about him. I think I knew before they did that they would be together forever. ;)

They got married on a California beach on July 14, 2012. I wished so badly I could have been there for her on her special day, but finances said otherwise. Naturally I had to make her something for her wedding. She was absolutely beautiful!

I made her a Bride hair piece. I wish this sweet couple the absolute best!

Real Weddings: Mitch and Holly

Good evening everyone!
It's time for another real wedding!
I have known this couple ever since before they even started dating, years ago! Actually, if it wasn't for these two, I never would have met my husband!
Holly and I were friends, and Mitch and Addison (my husband) were friends. We all met together at a church camp back in 2008, I think? We've seen this couple through all of the troubled times and milestones. They got married on February 25, 2012. They now have a sweet one year old son, who is friends with my son. 
I was honored to be asked to be a bridesmaid to such a close friend. My husband was even Mitch's best man, so needless to say, this couple is very precious to me and my family.
Of course I had to make something for their wedding.

November Special

Happy Monday everyone!
I don't think I've ever been so happy to be up and about and working on a Monday! I don't know if it's the time change or the fact that I will be on vacation this week.
The 5th-9th I will be on a much needed vacation with my family. I will still be reachable, but I may not respond right away. (I never truly go away from work)
November is known as the month of being thankful. So why not thanking all the wonderful people in your life and those who are helping with your wedding.
Which is what our November special is all about. Your wedding party.
