At Long Last

Yesterday, Paul and Linda both came willingly to the altar, and amid a few tears (a few is the polite way of saying a lot) they spoke their vows. So, my little Rinda (for some reason we call her that...) is a married woman. I'm sure Linda will do a mega wedding post, but I edited from the just under 300 shots we took, to give you a glimpse of the festivities and more importantly, the fashion. I'll do a post of my bridesmaid attire on the morrow.
The wedding was a lot of fun but it's nice to be back to normal now. I made Linda's dress so, of course, I had major anxiety about that (one day I'll post on my love/hate relationship with the bridal wear I create...). Hopefully, my life will slow down a bit now... But I'm so glad that Linda looked smoking, that the day went really well and that Paul and Linda are now all married and stuff.

wedding funny
Something funny...

wedding short
Surprise! Linda's dress lost the bottom layer for the dance! I wish we had a better picture of the short version but I was probably too busy dancing and Matt was too busy sneaking cigars (gross...).
Interesting fact about Linda... you have to blackmail Linda to go out anywhere there is a dance floor. But yet, when there is a dancefloor, she's in the middle of it, tearing it up. Girl can dance... Probably gets it from her father, he killed it during Rasputin!

Anyways...
Congrats Paul and Linda!!!! You're good kids and we love you!
