A Beautiful Bride

My niece Melissa was married to the most amazing man recently.  I met Wayne on the day that he arrived at my brother's house, to meet the family for the first time.  He had a great sense of humour and tolerated Crazy Auntie Linda Hugs.  Since then I have gotten to know him so much better and I am delighted that he is the newest member of the family.

Of course I made them a quilt, but first, pictures of the wedding.

The wedding was held overlooking the river at Pit Meadows.  A little comic relief was provided when a boater going by yelled "don't do it."  Well they did do it, and in fine style!

Melissa has always been so dedicated to her family.  Here she is surrounded by Deandra and Allawna.  Three beautiful sisters, I couldn't be more proud of them all.

The little brothers weren't left out.  Ibrahim and Idris looked very dapper in their suits.

Melissa with her family.  Ahhhh!

And now for the quilt.

Melissa said her and Wayne loved Blue and Green.  I pulled out an older Bali Pop called Blue Hawaiian, my Scrap Basket Surprise book, and made this for the two of them to enjoy.
