The Finishing Touches

I am determined to finish this and I promise I will never put you through this again.

The Dress,  that month of work-on top of all the other work.

Putting together a wedding on your own...a whole other  part of you just  rises to the surface.  It's kind of like that movie "Basket Case".  When else do I go to Macy's... to shop???? ( I can't stand Macy's) and buy 5 pairs of shoes just to try?  Then buy 2 more on 34th street in a fit of panic. (6 hours of returns) When else does my better-half get even more involved than me in planning a party menu & insisting on the (amazing) chef & trekking over to Chinatown on the subway to buy,  lord knows, how many pounds of shrimp,  so the menu is absolutely perfect?

Not a lot of places in life where collaboration is quite like this, this is theater.  Starting  at the top...

  2. I can't believe that this was a tablecloth, I love it so much! I wondered where you'd gotten the design, who knew that your genius extended that far!
