A Fine Artsy Wedding...

In Rapid City, at the end of the summer, for the wedding of the son of my dear crafty friend, Donna. Here are myself and good old friends, Anita and Morey. We are out at the park where the wedding was held that evening. Donna had made eighty glass lanterns, many lit paper lanterns and had decorated parasols. We were all there to help put it all together. 

The women are dressed and waiting for the happy event. My Kat, me and friends, Di, Janice, Anita and Mary.

I thought Kat looked rather smashing, here in her retro dress, later covered with a leopard sweater.

Woody, one of the most handsome grooms I have ever seen, waited happily for his beautiful bride. He and the groomsmen wore bowties that belonged to Jud. The wedding was actually held on our anniversary. I was very touched. Artists and crafters, note the flowers, torn out of paper and made by the bride, that fluttered in the breeze.

The stunning bride and her father. She made the beautiful flower that she carried. Major Wow!!!

The bride and groom speak their vows to each other, under the weeping willow trees, while the paper flowers were blown by a gentle breeze. 

And for the reception, the bride made even more of these gorgeous flowers. I was dazzled!!!

Lawn games, a buffet dinner and a pyramid constructed by the wedding party. What a beautiful, happy wedding!

Alas, my friend, Donna, was so busy that I did not get a picture of her and of her husband, Art. I will find one from a friend and print it later. She looked lovely in an incredible short sleeveless dress and matching sworovski crystal jewelry.
