The wedding was lovely. (Besides being 100 degrees, which gave everyone a happy glow.) Jessica was gorgeous, my parents looked great (my dad even wore a tie), and my own little family was very dapper all dressed up.
As for my crafty contribution to the event, procrastination payed off and about a week before the wedding my sister decided she didn't want the veil/scarf that I was supposed to bead (but hadn't started), so I had time to make Ali a skirt, and Mike and Devin ties. For the ties, I used this pattern, with great success. Who knew making a tie was so easy (and the pattern so crazy big)! Mike shrank down the pattern for Devin's, and I sewed an earring clip onto it to make a clip-on version.
Congratulations, Jessica & Brian! Welcome to the family Brian and Kayli!
