Bonjour, Wedding Day!

My daughter is now a Married Lady!

Here she is getting her hair ready for the big day.  You see the little daisy hair clip?  Callan made that herself!  She had a real DIY wedding.  Everything was so lovely, unique, creative and artful--from the hand-made paper daisy links gracing the trees in the Mt. Vernon Park to the table decorations with antique books and pretty little vintage vases of flowers.

So imaginative!  But, then that's no surprise.  

After all she is a graduate of MICA (Maryland Institute College of Art).
Oh, and of course pretty bridesmaids are all artists too!

We had the most glorious weather in Baltimore!

It was sunny and warm--but not too warm.
The ceremony was so romantic.  Jerry and Callan
wrote their own vows and memorized them.  Their
heartfelt declarations of love were so poignant that all
the bridesmaids began crying.  And I must admit I was
pretty teary-eyed myself!  I loved it when they declared
that they vowed to forever be Best Friends!  That's really
what marriage is all about.

And here's the bride with her proud mama
(that would be moi!)

Callan and Jerry both adore bunnies and so they chose bunnies for the "cake topper."  Although, they didn't have a cake, but rather the most delicious cupcakes decorated in flowers with blue and pink and green frosting.  Yum!  Here's a photo of the cupcakes and the bunny cake topper.  And, yes, Callan made it!

My French tutor has told me that it's very French to celebrate your wedding in the morning, and Callan and Jerry did just that.  No surprise there, since they both love France, especially Paris, where Jerry proposed to Callan last October on the Artists Bridge....and now, one year--she's a Married Lady!
I'll post some photos of the bride and groom very soon!  I promise! xo Jamie

  5. Thank you! Yes, it was a very original wedding. Very sweet. I will post more photos as soon as Callan sends them to me! I was so distracted that day, I really hardly got any pictures! I was too busy crying, then laughing, the crying. It's really incredible to think my baby girl is a married lady!
