The Evening Before and The Morning Of

I love the way the dessert table looked at night.  I was so happy and excited the night before.

Now, I was just setting up my camera on a tripod and doing a few test shots for a family photo. But I love the way the yard looked and how Scott set up the tables. (We had set the place setting that morning and then covered them with sheets so that the would stay clean until we got home from church.)

How it all looked before we covered it. I did an April Cornell table cloth (called Mother's Bouquet.. perfect for Mothers Day) in the middle for the "head table" with solid dark pink napkins. Then I did the two side tables with white tablecloths with the "Mother's Bouquet" napkins to bring it all together.

Oh that morning. I still get butterflies thinking about it.

I told Abigail that when I'm old and grey I'd like her to bring me those shoes so that I can look at them and remember.

The Mass you'll just have to trust me.. was A MA ZING! The children were on the alter for the entire Mass and gathered close, right there for the Eucharistic prayer. I cried. It was just so meaningful.

And after Mass we headed back home for a very special afternoon.
