Simple and Beautiful!

Today my blog post is going to be a bit about my sister and Pinterest!  My sister is a wonderful woman, great Mom and hard worker but not very crafty or so she thought until she decided she was going to do most of the decorating for her wedding!

I introduced her to Pinterest and as they say the rest was history.... she made so many gorgeous things from that site!

Her wedding was very beautiful and everyone was amazed at some of the things that she did with simple things.

Her Husband to be was very handy too and made lots of gorgeous wooden items items for the decor.

Card box/keepsake box - Husband made.

The letters are made from cardboard and glitter, tacked to a piece of satin fabric... her husband made the frames to highlight them... she made LIVE, LOVE AND LAUGH!  The hearts hanging from the ceiling are also made from cardboard... she had 3 different sizes that randomly hung from the ceiling. Also the little flower arrangements were her pew markers.. made from cans, glitter, and dollar store flower with small clip to hang by(Pinterest)!
This was so special... also something she saw on Pinterest... Parents wedding pictures placed next to a candle.. both Dad's have passed away and were not here for her special day.  It is hard to see but her programs are also placed on the table... they were fans... each blade was a part of the program.. stunning idea and very useful in the church.  The blue table cloth and table mats were made by me.

Our Family!

As you can tell I am very proud of my sister and am so happy for her... she deserves it so much... she lost her first husband in a boating accident 17 years ago when her children were 3 and 5!  It took her this long to move on and make a new life for herself... and to show how wonderful she really is!  Her first husband's family were almost all there at the wedding!

One last picture... this was so fun... the bouquet toss...
Lady in the pink and black- MIL; 2nd last lady - her former MIL; Last lady in green blouse our Mom... all up to catch the bouquet! It was so fun getting them up there to catch her bouquet...  Sadly they are all widows!

I hope you enjoyed the little glimpse of my sister and her beautiful wedding day!
