Neopotism: Giving deference to your family. Astonishment: Total surprise your sister pulled this wonderful champagne pink wedding off.
I was always the creative one in the family, and I say this modestly, my siblings long admired my talents and the many homes I decorated. But this year I was blown away by two very special family weddings, the daughter of my eldest sister – a lovely family wedding who married a super guy in Philadelphia and my my middle sister’s son’s wedding in an old-style Kentucky wedding complete with WAY too much bourbon. When I was married, my oldest brother, who toasted me at my wedding in 1985 said “You never surprise me, Marg. Everything you do is done with elegance, beauty and this wedding is certainly a reflection of who you are.” I know he said it because my wedding was one of the first recorded weddings in the family…. back in the days.
But, this past August, it was with total surprise that my sister Emma pulled one on all of us. She and I have a brood of boys between us, and when the doctor (back in 1995) told me my second child was going to be a boy, the only thing I could say is “there goes the princess weddings!” My sister and I are always giggling about ways to get pink back in our lives. So, when she invited us all down to Kentucky for the wedding of her oldest son, she got her revenge and got her pink on. The wedding and rehearsal was a statement in pinks and champagne and all of her 5 siblings were completely transformed by her creativity and dedication to creating one of the most opulent, over the top weddings I had ever seen, and in this business, I have gone to well over 1000 weddings. So that is really saying something.
However, of the almost 5000 entries this year, I decided that there was no way I couldn’t pronounce the wedding of my sister’s son and daughter-in-law, as my favorite “2015 Wedding of the Year” – and here is a startling peek at the wedding and the rehearsal party! For more, visit this page.
