Today marks my husband's and mine 18th wedding anniversary. We married young and we were completely broke, but very much in love.
I have really good memories of our wedding day. Since money was scarce, we relied upon friends and family to supply the setting, much of the food and even the entertainment.
My dress was a 1920's drop waisted gown that I found at an antique store ( along with the pearl choker) and my veil (which I fell in love with) was found at a second hand bridal shop.
My aunt had a huge backyard that she generously welcomed us to use for the setting. The fare was simple... my mom and I went to a local, mom and pop owned Italian deli and purchased trays of meats and cheeses. A talented friend made the wedding cake.
With over 100 guests we were grateful to have 3 D.J's in the family which provided plenty of music for dancing.
I have always been a bit of a romantic. I think that is why so
many of my clay characters are shown happy, lovey-dovey settings like the guys below.
I hope you have happy plans for Valentines Day tomorrow. To celebrate, I modified the image below for you to you use as you please in your Valentine's day tag or card making.
