"My Best Friend's Wedding"

This is my best buddy Regina and I on her wedding day!
She married a brave soldier of the United States of America!
The ceremony was lovely and really touched my heart. I have watched this love unfold from the beginning via a very long distance romance to watching them exchange their vows and begin their journey in God's kingdom as husband and wife. They will be living in Hawaii.
I made this for one of their wedding mementos.
Yes, it is a bitty book! I stashed a few away to save for very special occasions!
This is a picture of the sleeve the bitty book slides into for safe keeping.
This is my garter I wore at my wedding used to embellish the sleeve. I used The Grooms Designer Speciality Paper and the Brides DSP to design this book.
The letter "L" stands for LeValley their last name with two half back large pearls from the Pretties Kit. The "L" is from the Seriff Essentials alphabet die cut set. It is backed with dimensionals and covered with the Brides DSP with chipboard sandwiched between to give it some firmness.
The ribbon is the white satin, OMG, I love the NEW 5/8" satin ribbon line in the Occasions Mini.
This is the bitty book that fits inside the sleeve and holds all the pictures.
I used the Sizzix Scalloped Hanging Frame die cut and some beautiful quick embellishments I picked that just fit the occasion perfectly. Using our rhinestone brads and the Bride and Groom DSP. What do you think, really I need comments?

This is the card I made for them as these were their wedding colors it worked out great!!
Again Bride and Groom DSP, pretties kit hat pin with pearls and crystals wrapped the bow with NEW satin 5/8" real red ribbon( love it ) get it in every color!! The sentiment is from the Together Forever stamp set and the label is from the matchbox die cut with two black brads.

This is the happy couple having their first dance as husband and wife!
Josh and Regina have not had an easy road to this day, Josh has been fighting in the war in Iraq and Regina has been patiently waiting for him to come home so they can begin their life together.
I thank God for the wonderful blessing of this union and for bringing her soldier home safely to begin their life together. Did I mention in Hawaii!! Lucky girl!
