Vintage Irish

So I've been quite busy lately preparing for a big move and our wedding.  I'm finally ready,and have a few moments, to show a few sneak peeks of the fruit of my labors.  Here are some pictures of the wedding elements.  Thank the Lord, it is coming together, piece by piece.  Only a few more weeks to go!  It will be an exciting time as I start a new life in a new place with the sweetest man in the world.
I adore my invitations, made by They were designed by my talented sister-in-law, Aly. They were printed on an antique printing press on handmade paper with antique ink, salvaged from an old print shop.

A tiny peek of my dress. I'm wearing my mother's dress that I altered.
My ringbearer's  moss shamrock "pillow".
I collect vintage postcards and I love these tissue paper flowers that were made for the Wedding Shower that my church family threw for my fiance' and me. I bought an antique hankie that had green lace edging and hand embroidered our initial on it.
