You two look perfect together. Congratulations and best wishes for a happy life together.

    I think I met your father-in-law at the deli when I was at the beach in September. If his son is anything like him, I’m already charmed. Much happiness to you both.

    I guess that single girl quilt can be officially retired now? 😉

  41. What a perfectly gorgeous and memorable wedding, location and joyful,
    loving family gathering. Hearty congratulations to you both. Thank you
    for sharing the wonderful pics .. can’t wait to learn how in the world you
    carried off the planning of this event with such seeming relaxed perfection
    in so short a time. LOVE the Scrabble accents.

    You are so beautiful .. just glowing .. on your special day; you made
    David’s Bridal shine, and your hubby is obviously overjoyed.

    Before your last few eventful posts, I’d been so looking forward to hearing
    more about your exciting blind hemmer and your progress and projects…
    and now look what’s unfolded! LOL ..

    God bless you with decades of happy times and steady, devoted marital
    bestfriendship through the ups and downs of life.


  42. Triple Word Score! Best wishes, and congratulations to the groom! Much joy and happiness to you both.

  43. Congratulations! Wishing you at least a million happy moments. Beach weddings are so beautiful… What a gorgeous couple. 🙂

    PS. Yarmulke? Didn’t realize your hubby was Jewish! (Mine is, too. They’re the best! LOL.) Mazel tov!

  44. Oh wow! You weren’t kidding when you said you’d moved it up!! Well, sometimes the things that you have the least amount of time to agonize over turn out the best, and it sounds like this held true for you this time. You look beautiful!! I wish you two a lifetime of loving, laughing, fighting (and making up! 😉 ), and respecting each other. Marriage really is work–you both have to put in the time and effort, but it’s so rewarding. It will be especially rough the first few years while you learn from each other and deal with this sad time, but this is the stuff that really will make you a better team, and it’s good to have someone to help you and be strong with you.

  45. Congrats. You look stunning and more importantly, joyful. Thank you for sharing your day with us…

  46. Congratulations! How wonderful that you were able to make things happen so that all the important people were there.

  47. Congratulations and all the best for a glorious future together. Beautiful bride and beautiful setting. The groom’s not too bad either!!!

  48. Congratulations to you both. May God bless and keep you both. May your marriage be filled with happiness and love xxxx
