A JULY WEDDING: ABBY & TOM





Okay...so I'm popping in really quickly because I am always waiting to write the most perfect post, and this especially, about something so heartfelt as my daughter's wedding.  But I'm not going to postpone a lot at this point.  My blogging habits are sincerely going to change.  And that starts with photos of this happy day on July 13, 2019.



It tugs at my heart that Abby and Tom met just after high school after living in the same neighborhood in Chicago all that time.  To their credit, their relationship was on a steady course throughout college...hundreds of miles apart, stints living separately in the city while stretching their wings, and then together in an apartment with their rescue dog, Squall.

The wedding was a culmination of ten steadfast and loving years.


Abigail was surrounded and supported by her friends and big sister as bridesmaids.  There is so much more to share about the days before the wedding, and on the very day when these girls prepared and helped prepare Abby for her big day.  I'll share that soon.



The gowns were simply lovely.  I loved that they were long, silky, and so flattering on all of these pretty girls.  The flowers were spectacular against the simplicity of the dresses.
,


Finally, a little peek at the tables at the reception which was held inside the grand dining room of the resort. 

There are so many details I want to share, as well as candid pics.  But I'm always on a writing deadline crunch and I really have to get some discipline going here.  I know you understand. We also know how well that works in summertime! ;-D

I'll be around soon.  Just wanted to share a bit to all of you lovely friends!

Blondie, Your beautiful Abby. Doesn't seem that long ago she was in school, does it? Yes, those gowns are perfect. Not gaudy and restricting. LOL Wishing the happy couple all the best. Blessings, xoxo, Susie

Hi Jane, I have been away for a while and am trying to catch up with some of my friends. Your daughter was a beautiful bride and it is stressful. A beautiful wedding. I know there was more to do when our daughter got married than when our son got married. Your family is growing with expecting new grandbabies. They are very special and precious. All the special memories that are made whether a wedding, a new baby, or a get together is something that we have in our heart every day. Take care. Hugs and Prayers from your Missouri Friend Shirley

Jane, I so get it! I'm not churning out blog post at any speed these days. Sitting here tonight with one floating around in my head but not yet written. Abby is so pretty, and I love their story! The photos are making me eager to see more. But I'm a patient girl.
Take care and savor the rest of summer at your pretty lake property.
