On June 29th 2017, Emily and Ryan said their vows with a rushing Colorado mountain river in the background and just a few raindrops to bless their marriage. It was beautiful!
Our family of four has grown by one and we couldn't be happier.
It was so special shopping with my daughter and finding the perfect dress. The one she chose was extra special because the name of the dress was Marnie. My Mom was called Aunt Marnie by my cousins my entire life. On top of that, Emily wears my Mom's engagement diamond in her ring! And, to complete the picture, this frame is a special one that came from my Mom's house. I just love this photo and all it means. I'm sure my Mom is proud of her beautiful granddaughter.
Emily envisioned a botanical theme featuring primarily ferns with a few florals added in for color. My inner graphic designer had so much fun designing and making the invitations and other decorations. I used my Silhouette to cut the leafy panels for the invitations and Illustrator for many of the other items.
The floral motif came into play with this beautiful paper that we used for some of the signage and this fun wall of photos telling the Deister and Othman family stories.
Since allergies were a bit of an issue, Emily and I did the bridal bouquets ourselves using some lovely high end silk flowers from a specialty floral boutique. Can you tell we had fun playing with all the beautiful colors and blooms.
We spent the whole week of the wedding in the mountains with family from out of state. Hiked in Rocky Mountain Natl. Park, talked, ate and talked some more. Had a special girls only party and basically had a fantastic time just being with family. This is Ouzel Falls and then the view of the river near the wedding venue. Stunning.
I'll leave you with just a few more wedding photos . . .
Introducing Mr and Mrs Ryan Othman . . . my daughter is a wife.
And Ryan is a wonderful, handsome, caring husband.
Life is good.
If you've read this far, thank you for indulging me and sharing in this very special event. I promise I'm getting back to quilting. I've finished a top that perhaps you've seen on Instagram. Take a look and follow @springleafstudios.
