Fifteen years ago yesterday, I wed Husband in a beautiful ceremony on Maui at the Grand Wailea Resort. Our closest friends joined us for a magical ceremony that included our vows in a stained glass church near the beach, a sunset whale-watching reception cruise on a schooner with humpback whales breaching and dolphins racing us in our wake. It was truly magical.
So now that I’ve said my soppy sentiments (what can I say, it’s was my anniversary), here are a few photos from the day. The silk dress I made myself, as I wanted to look like a Hawaiian princess on my wedding day (I did hula back in the day and wanted something that would have fit in on Hawaii a century ago.) My “something blue” was my blue corset underneath and I sewed blue Austrian crystals to the bodice. The skirt no longer exists, as I chopped it up to make my son’s baptismal gown and romper. What would my son do with my wedding dress? I wanted him to have something he may actually use one day. Only the bodice remains. Hope you enjoy.
