Doing A Friend's Wedding Today

One of my co-worker friends is getting married today at 2pm at the Boise Train Depot (no longer in use for trains).  Originally she was going to have the pastor of her fiance's church do it, but as punishment for her not being a member of his congregation he wanted to charge them $2000+.  What preacher would teach "don't fool around until you are married", but then wants to make it near impossible to do by "Christian" means?  Because I've done a few other weddings for family members of other co-workers who raved about how awesome of a job I do (I'm not bragging...) she called me and asked if I would do their ceremony.  I made this card for them.  They were high school sweethearts.  They're both in their late 50's.  They lost touch with each other and since have both been widowed and/or divorced.  I'm so excited for them!

Since they are a special couple, super sweet and very kind, I wanted to make them something more...unique, for their card.  Their weddings colors will be pinks and cream.  I used a sheet of double sided DP from the Preserved Paper pack by DCWV and a sentiment from Create With TLC.  I added some dies, ribbon flowers, a bow, cheese cloth, pearls, string pearls and pop dots.  I really love how this turned out.  I hope the pictures do it justice!

Karen, that is a wonderful story and unfortunately so true about what the "churches" do. I'm so glad that you will be performing their ceremony. Your card is just gorgeous. Have fun!!!
