Wedding Day

My husband I were thrilled when our son and fiance visited us on the July long weekend to tell us they had  finally decided to get married...it had only taken eleven years! They chose the date...July 23rd and planned to use our church. Two weeks before the wedding date, Matt asked if they could use our backyard since  they were only including family. So, after all these years of having many flower gardens, I changed up this year and planted vegetables....where would they stand?....amongst the tomatoes? ...or between the  beans and beets? We decided it didn't matter. The ministers have a great sense of humour and one took pictures while the other performed the service. It was a beautiful day and the bride and groom  decided that 9:30 AM was a perfect time, especially with the heat of the summer. It was delightful! I made wedding announcements and was happy with the way  they turned out. I used PTI paper, ribbon and sentiment, Labels 20 Nestabilities, and a Cuttlebug embossing folder. I printed the announcement inside and used a PTI flower stamp. I made some with plain green ribbon, others with swiss dot and the rest with plain cream ribbon.  I will enter it into the following challenges:
