A Mardi Gras Wedding..2 LO's and a FREEBIE!!

Well, my Beautiful Daughter got married on the 18th! Finally, it's not like they've been together for, they are 'Middle School Sweethearts' and have been together since they were 14yrs old!
It was a beautiful wedding, she did such an awesome job planning it. She also saved some money and made the veil, Ring Bearer's pillow, Garter Belts, Money Bag for the money dance, tags for one of the wedding favors and some other stuff!!
It was Mardi Gras/New Orleans themed, instead of Bouquets for the Bridesmaids they carried Mardi Gras masks like the ones on the cake below. We also did the 'Second Line' from the wedding venue to the Reciption at the Mardi Gras Museum. Instead of the 'garder belt' my Son-in-law pulled out a huge pair of Mardi Gras was so funny! But he did eventually find the Garter and toss that! lol...My other daughter caught the Bouquet....Hint Leigha and Tommy!!!
 I cannot wait to post some LO's with her wedding pics, I'm looking for some really nice wedding and Mardi Gras kits...I'd LOVE it if I can find a good combination kit to use, but I know I'm pushing my!! Here's a couple of 'show off' pics...
1st there was laughter.....

Then there were tears.

My Daughter her Husband and their son.

Their 1st Dance as Wife and Husband (yes I did that on purpose!)

Mardi Gras wedding cake! 

Wasn't she such a Beautiful Bride?

Here's my other Daughter as her Maid of Honor:

And my Son as a Groomsman,(ohhhh he's in a Tux!! yes I cried seeing him in that! lol)  and Niece as a Bridesmaid: 

Wait...Gotta get a closer look at Brandon!!! 

This was wrapped around her Bouquet, in Memory of his Maw-maw and Paw-paw (on the right) and Bri's Paw-paw (my Dad, on the left)
  Ok, that's enough...I'm gonna bore you to Death with photos!! lol

Here are two LO's using Animal Crackers Base Kit by MagsGraphics, you find can this kit on sale now along with many of her other great kits over at MooTwo Designs!
