to step out of chronology so often, Reader Dear!
I know it doesn't make a lick of sense to now show you the bride as she's preparing for her wedding! Alas, however, that's just what I intend to do.
I have to show you how that lovely vintage gown involved some very fine workmanship (all those tiny, cloth-covered buttons!)
It involved some workmanship to get them buttoned, too, I mean to say!
Likewise, I feel I must toss in this little bit regarding the bride and how she tossed a sixpence into her shoe just prior topicking up the bridal bouquet I'd
crafted for her.
Then she set out on the
journey of a lifetime!
She exited the dressing room to meet the man who planned to set sail alongside her on this journey (and this man's mother [whom I was so pleased to meet, knowing that she and I would also be on this trip [well, not on the very same ship, you know (but, yes, very close by)!])
The bride attended to a few more details.
And, now! Now we will all move along to the ceremony, Reader Dear,
in a tidy and traditional way!
Any post to come will stick strictly to the post-ceremony story, I promise. I do!
