My Wedding Day


Before liturgy the day of our wedding
I placed rose petals and rose leaves
by the main icons.


My Grandma's dress
that I wore
62 years
later.

The Veil
was handmade
to match the dress and
what my Grandma
wore on her wedding day.

It was beautiful and prayerful.

Our Crowns.

Being brought from
the betrothal to the crowning
by my spiritual father.

My shoes. :)

My dress.
Cross and komboskini from
Holy Dormition Monastery.


We had each table named
for a different event or character in
CS Lewis' Narnia books.

It was beautiful and full of light.

This was our wedding cake.

Everyone had cheesecake
for dessert.

Our rings.

The cake server is ours
a gift from a good friend of ours.

We handed out wedding favours.
 
Dutch King and Queen peppermints.

Oh, dear Elizabeth, it's so beautiful, that it looks like a fairy tale. I wish you a fairy tale life with your husband, plus the protection of our Lord, the Theotokos and all the saints you love and talk to so much!

Lovely! So many nice little details, no wonder you were overwhelmed in planning them all, but looks like they all came together beautifully.
