To be honest, I think part of the excitement for me was that it just brought back so many memories. Doug and I began our relationship while living in England. I lived there from 1994-1999 and Doug was there from 1997-1999. We even spent our first few months as a married couple living right outside of Cambridge in a small village called Cherry Hinton. It was such a magical time and England will always hold a special place in my heart. Thus the obsession. I just couldn't let the day go by without acknowledging it in some fashion.
I did convince her to let me take a few shots with our version of the wedding hat. I had to agree to let her bring 5 ladybugs home with us. We now have a ladybug nursery in the house.
I used Dana's freezer paper stencil tutorial to make the "Royal Lion" t-shirt.
Harry: Wills is hitting me.
Parent: Do not hit your brother. I said, "Do not hit your brother. William Arthur Philip Louis Cambridge Strathearn Carrickfergus Mountbatten-Windsor, do not make me come down there".
Seriously though, it was such a fun day. I saw a wonderful quote on facebook that I thought summed things up nicely. "For one day I saw magic. Every other day of my life I watch one disaster after another. Today I watched a fairytale". I agree! Congratulations to the Newlyweds! Wishing all of us more fairytales and less heartbreak!
