Last weekend family and friends from three continents gathered at the Chicago area's Morton Arboretum to celebrate the wedding of our middle daughter. The day dawned rainy and overcast. And then the sun came out.
The day before the wedding was a busy one, spent playing with succulents and flowers,
and the Bride's bouquet.
Her bouquet was made with a dozen roses, 17 hand-wired and wrapped succulents, orchids, baby's breath, and statice, all hand-tied, wrapped in ribbon, finished with an ivory bow, and blessed with a mother's love.
Rain and clouds, sun and warm breezes, family and close friends - it was an entirely beautiful day - one we'll remember with great fondness and joy.
It is written, when children find true love, parents find true joy. Here's to your joy and ours from this day forward. -Unknown
