A Perfect Fall Wedding CARD, The I Do Photos and LIM95

This post is kind of long but I'd think you'll like it.  Please forward & share with friends for those who love the Owl Builder punch & also pretty weddings.

A big Congratulations to Kelly and Ian on their Happy I Do day back in late October.  It was a perfect Fall wedding at The Old Homestead in scenic Crockett, CA (wedding photographs below).  So on with the card ...
My owl wedding card. The owl dress draped with a string of pearls and a touch of one glamorous rhinestone!
A close up photograph above of the owl bride's dress and ivory tulle veil.  At Kelly & Ian's wedding, the couple made the sweetest wedding favors I've have ever seen.  They were a mason jar filled with delicious oatmeal cookies adorn with beautifully laced & ivory satin picot edge-ribbon draped all around (sorry, no picture).  On the owl card I personalized it by adhering a piece of the picot-edge ribbon from Kelly's favors and adhered it onto the veil for the owl bride card "something new". 
 A string of pearls!
Below are a few of my favorite photographs I took of the Happy I Do couple Kelly & Ian.  Hope you enjoy them.

A big congratulations to Kelly and Ian on their Happy I Do day!
A Perfect Fall Evening Wedding it was!
 A photograph of my little grown up family. My son Matthew, Marian (me), my daughter Mandy (who was in the wedding party as a bridesmaid/brides hair stylist and by the way who caught the bouquet) and her sweet boyfriend Damon.   Mandy is wearing my favorite pearl necklace "something olde" given to me from my God Mother from when I was born.   Every year my God Mother would add a pearl and then when I turned sweet 16 she finished off the necklace.  God Bless my sweet Nina Lucy.   Doesn't Mandy look great!

LQQK there's more!  Over at Less is More Chrissie & Jen created some inspiring
Rich royalty gems a string of pearls and a sparkly rhinestone!
