June Honeymoon, My off Beat Bride
My daughter was an off beat bride and had an off beat wedding. I knew at seven years old when she asked for an album of " Queen's " music, and divorced Barbie for trolls that she had no intention of following the mainstream. She told me at seven she would be married in either a purple dress or a red dress. While on a search for a dress she stuck to those two colors! To this day she never wears white! She defied convention then and still does! Never a dull moment with my girl who was married Feb 14th, 2008. Was I upset that she planned to elope? Not a chance I encouraged them to do what made them happy. We keep hearing of horror stories where mothers take control of what is suppose to be the brides day! I wonder if the fact that I never enjoyed my wedding day was a precursor to the subsequent 23 years?
Knowing the groom had been wanting red shoes for well over a year, the bride went on an extensive search finding the last two back east, only one pair size 12! She spent less time worrying about her own shoes.Instead she had his shoes shipped here and presented them as a wedding gift. They made for perfect Valentine shoes!
Tinker is having a celebration called June Honeymoon, I made it! Posting one minute before midnight pacific standard time! Perfect, being the Night Hawk that my off beat bride is she would love getting married right at midnight! Surrounded in purple and green! Candle light aglow, indy music of all unheard artists playing in the back ground! A quirky cake with the angel Aunt Tuition whispering good wishes, checking out the groom to make sure he's on the up and up! My girl Chaise is ready for her special day. Would I want an wedding like hers!! Hell yes! For more off beat weddings and pictures, check out this cool website.....I wanted to post some of the pictures on my blog but was worried about copy right infringement!! So this is what you get!!! Hope you live happily ever after Chaise, and Pepper too!
