    Beautiful! Thanks for sharing pics! My daughter’s getting married in January… what would maybe be one particularly helpful piece of advice you’d want to pass along? 😉

    • Congrats to you, Cyndi! Hmmm…one piece of advice. I’ve had both a daughter and a son get married now (certainly different responsibilities for a bride’s family than a groom’s family)…but one thing was the same: I paused for a moment to realize that nearly everyone I loved was gathered for this special day. It truly felt like a hint of heaven! Don’t miss that moment…it’s quite amazing to stop and take it all in.
      Thanks for asking! Blessings on your wedding planning, Cyndi. Warmly, Suzanne

        Great advice! True about the differences… my son got married in May a year ago and it’s LOTS different! 🙂 The planning is going well… just really hitting me how little time is left! And the holidays in there to boot! A bit bittersweet since this is my last but the seasons are changing… and that’s a good thing. Right? lol

        Good reminder to pause and enjoy! Thank you!
