I had made my bridal bouquet of Daffodils, Pussy Willows, and Cattails. Heather incorporated them not only into my bouquet, but also into masses of blooms on the ground around us, along with patches of half-melted snow.
My sweet Mike, or "my big bearded friend," as I call him, with our courthouse behind him. The courthouse is the most beautiful building in our former college town. I used to live a block behind it when I went to school there.
My bouquet and my beloved cream tights and T-strap shoes. Heather even included the embroidered details on my jacket's collar.
Mike's ring in the painting is even the simple silver band it is in real life. Heather's attention to detail and the care she took with this just make my heart happy. And below is our Stuffed watching over us from a tree-top. Dear face.
We are now blessed enough to have both the wedding pictures we had taken (with the cameras on our phones and on a disposeable camera I'd bought at Target the day before [blissfully simple, as I'd said!]) and this lovely painting too. And where else to display it but on the mantel Dad made for our first anniversary. It is a treasure. ♥
