    Wedding 2 

    On Saturday Night, Sofia and Mark were married at The Cliff Dwellers, surrounded by family and close friends. It was such a perfect night, and they were both so gorgeous.  The Cliff Dwellers also holds a special place in my heart, as Dan and I had our wedding reception there.

    A few months ago I had asked Sofia if she wanted me to make a shawl for her wedding.  She said no, that she wouldn’t wear it.  Well, about 4 weeks ago, I decided that I was going to make one anyways, how often does a mother get to make a wedding shawl.  I couldn’t really talk about it here, as she sometimes reads my blog.  So this is the silk shawl that i was working on, posed for just a couple of photos with the gorgeous view from the Cliff Dwellers.  The Jewelry that she is wearing was given to my Mother by my Father when they were dating, and I wore it at my wedding.  So perfect with the dress.

    Wedding 1 

    What an amazing fun-filled week.  I will be posting twice today, as each event deserves it’s own post.  My son Ethan, married his Fiancé Sayaka, in Philadelphia in a civil ceremony at the end of July.  Dan, Sofia, Mark and I all celebrated with them at the Signature Room on the top of the Hancock Tower along with my sister Diane and her family.  It was so beautiful and such a perfect night.  Unfortunately, I do not have many photos, need to get them from my sister.  I made Sayaka this Semele shawl to celebrate.

    So, since I don’t have good photos from the actual night, here a photo from 2 nights later (at Sofia’s wedding!).  They are such a gorgeous couple, we are so happy for them.
