Beautiful Wedding!

There's a few reasons why I haven't posted for a couple of months. One of those reasons is that my son and his beautiful bride got married on September 29th. It was a beautiful day and a beautiful wedding. Matt and Aleyta were married in San Juan Bautista which is about an hour and a half from our home. It is a quaint little town where chickens roam free and reminds my daughter in law of Mexico where she lived for a while. Yes she speaks fluent spanish! Pretty good for a gringa!!!

They held the wedding in the lush gardens of a mexican restaurant named Jardines de San Juan. Jardines translates to Gardens in english. We didn't have to go far for the reception!

I must say that when I first laid eyes on my daughter in law (to be-in moments) I was taken aback by how beautiful she was in her wedding gown. I immediately was overtaken with emotion and had to give her a big hug. She had been dreaming about this day since she was a little girl and she just glowed with beauty!

As she walked down the aisle and my son saw her for the first time in her wedding gown, he also was overtaken with emotion. He's a sweetheart and a great young man who has chosen a wonderful young woman to share his life with.

This is my grandson Brandon. He's 3 1/2 years old and he was the ring bearer/reception entertainment with his harmonica that he received from his Uncle Matt and Auntie Aleyta.

This is my husband Steve and I standing in front of the quilt I made for the bride and groom. I didn't get a picture of the bride and groom in front of the quilt because the wind picked up and kept knocking the quilt over so we took it down.
Now that the rehearsal dinner and wedding is behind us maybe I can start getting some quilt related projects going. I'm afraid I've been spending a lot of time reading other quilter's blogs when I should be sewing. Anyone else have that problem too?

Thanks for the pictures of the wedding. The quilt is gorgeous! You and Steve look like you are having a great time. Did you make the Firehouse Beans? See you this weekend.

P.S. Yes, I spend more time reading blogs and looking at websites than I do sewing. I am afraid I am hooked, too!
