shout it from the roof tops

There are moments in each of our lives that we feel the need to shout it from the roofs how happy we are.
this month is that time for me
my incredible daughter Emily and her amazing boyfriend Matthew got married June 2!
James and i smiling all day

 it is amazing  how many months before the date you plan, create and then set up the whole affair. the work is incredible but in the end seeing everyone enjoy themselves and the look on my daughters face i realized all over again there is nothing i wouldn't do for her and Matthew.
Emily's dear friend Eva from college days in Cork, Ireland came all the way from Italy to be a part of the wedding celebration.
She wore the most amazing dress that her mother wore over 40 years ago, the stitching was beautiful and of course i have to share it.

you can see the inside of the stitching

and last but of course one of the yummy parts is the cake. made by a family friend with acorns, ladybugs, ferns, mushrooms and etc. it was a work of art.
 i love the cake topper that my daughter had made to go with her outdoor in the woods theme,
a buck and doe all dressed up.
