TTIC #28 Part 2: The Commentary


Margie wanted us to discuss memorable weddings/wedding moments. Well folks, here ya go! My wedding... I could literally post hundreds of photos of the most magickal day of my life (and, if anyone is really interested, ask & ye shall receive!), but I'll settle for just 2 for now. The entire wedding, ceremony, reception, etc. was pure magick and joy. We had a Medieval themed wedding (yes, all of our guests came in costume!), and our ceremony was a handfasting (that's where "to tie the knot came from!), preformed by a priestess. Everything you see that I'm wearing (sans my headpiece) was made by my amazing mom (yes, that's where I get it from). My sis Pam & I designed my dress, I picked out my flowers (all silk, of course!), and the fabric for my cape. She went to town. My husband's outfit was custom made for him. Isn't he stunning???


Moving on... Gene and I made our wedding about US. It was custom created for US. Nothing like it anywhere- ever. We had the greatest time planning it, and the best time celebrating it. Could I pinpoint a favorite moment for you??? That would have to be when I knighted him (I TOLD you it was amazing!!!). Our guests had no idea what to expect- we told them nothing. All they knew was that it was medieval. So, when Gene drew his sword, got down in one knee and offered it to me, EVERYONE gasped. And then, I knighted him. Pure magick...

So, I did make another project for the TTIC... but my darling little boy would like me to read him a Miss Spider book. Kids come first! So, I will be posting Part 3 ASAP. Watch for it! Hope you enjoyed Part 2!!!
