April’s Wedding

Tuesday, May 5th, 2009

aprilandrob.jpgSaturday was a Very. Big. Deal.

My dear friend April got married. Though it was a small event, I was honored to be there and sing with Brian. It was a joyous day.

April is always beautiful. Saturday she glowed. She is a fuschia-pink sort of girl, and there was much pink to be found. She even had hot pink satin shoes for her “getaway” outfit. After all, wedding dresses are no fun to wear for very long.

However, apparently flower girl dresses are the most heftonesaprilswedding.jpgcomfortable clothing ever. I had Isabel (April’s daughter who is a primary love of my life) for several hours after the wedding. She would not change out of that pretty dress even when it got chilly. She loves dressing up… just like mommy.

Although I could not take photos while I was singing, I shared my camera with little 5-year old Isabel and with our friend/Maid of Honor, Brandi. A few others also helped with the camera and we got a number of lovely shots.

First photo is April and her beloved aprilweddingcasual.jpg(I haven’t asked him yet if he minds me using his name here on my blog). Second is one of Isabel’s cousins (I think), enjoying the music Brian and I were playing while the guests waited for their dinners to arrive. Third is April in her getway attire.

Fourth is Brandi, April, Me, and Isabel (frequent readers have seen a few photos of the four of us before). I will have a whole post on April’s purse (which I made for her), sometime soon.

My favorite photo? The last one. The best part I cut out and blew up so you can really see… what an honor it is to be loved by a child.

For the knitters out there: My shawl is a Bloom Shawl, designed by my friend Trish Bloom, free pattern on Knitty. It was knit for me by my Sister-in-Love, Diana, for me to wear at New York Ukefest 2007. The yarns are Louisa Harding Kimono Ribbon Pure held together as one with Rowan Kidsilk Haze, both blue-purple. It’s warm and stays on the shoulders well. And it flatters!

April’s purse is a Sassy Summer Handbag in Malabrigo Worsted Merino magenta/fuschia, with handle/closure knit from Louisa Harding Impression Ribbon. I’ll have closeup photos one of these days. It turned out beautifully.

I melt every time I see that photo of little Isabel holding my finger. It won’t be long before she doesn’t need me like that any more. I’m really enjoying this phase while it lasts.
