A Prize and some Wedding Stuff

I cannot believe it, finally a chance to blog.......As lulu says I have just been up to my armpits in alligators lately. Whewwww........I have been helping with Katie's first shower that my Aunt Bettie is doing, and I have the mega wedding for my friend Cindy's daughter coming up on May 16 it is only 650 people.......Eeeekkkkkkkk.........Oh and on another note, take a look at this darling pillow that was a prize I won from Sweet Sue at Bella Shabby, I just love it and this girl made it and she is good, I would like to hire her to help me, if she wasn't in Oregon or somewhere..............Thank you for offering such a lovely gift and how lucky I was to win it.
Well, I have purposely not posted about the wedding because I know before it is over you will all be saying, "is that the only child that has ever gotten married?" But, I wanted to give you a little update on the Wedding of the year.........We met with the coordinator this past week and took some pictures, here is one of the actual venue. Isn't it gorgeous............. It is at the Legacy Lodge at Lake Lanier Islands in Buford, GA. It is just perfect for my son because he is such an outdoors man. That is the lake in the background and you can't even tell that the water is down 10 feet, because we are still in a drought here.

We traveled to the Mart to take a look at all the dresses to choose from........And this is not the dress but, it is similar I just love it.........

And here are the colors, the tuxedos will be chocolate brown and I am not kidding the vests will be camouflage, you have to love this girl for letting him have camo..........The bridesmaids dresses will be this terra cotta color. These colors are also incorporated into the invitations which I will show you later. And this is one of the invitations for her very first shower, I made them and managed to find this fabulous paper to line the envelopes. They turned out great.........More to come........................
Here is a picture I have included of Mr. Hottie, and his buddy Aaron wearing his favorite shirt......never get tired of looking at this kid....................Cheers, Lauri

I have added your blog to my list just so I can see how the wedding is coming. I live in Buford, GA & I have never seen that lovely arch at the lake. What a BEAUTIFUL setting! Wow! 650 is a huge number of people but the setting is the best I have seen. My goodness, what a BIG job yet how exciting too! We MUST have all the details once you get another life besides wedding work...I am looking forward to what is ahead...sharon
