Two Weddings and a Happy Mother


Welcome and wonderful
Even if a bit stressful
Diaphanous  gowns and
Decorations to suit,
Intriguing reasons and
No unhappy tears
Grooms who love their brides
Smash all thoughts of doubt and give freedom to joy!

My husband and I have much to celebrate this month and next month. Both of our lovely adored children will be marrying their chosen partners; our son on Mother's Day, yes, this month, and our daughter on June 27th, yes next month! We have known of our daughter's for over a year, the other was announced last Thursday!

They are both so very happy, how can I not be? I am lucky that both my husband and I will be at both ceremonies. We are lucky that both of our loves have chosen wonderful people to share their lives with.

Thank goodness I've had a year dealing with my daughter's wedding, to help me know what needs to be done and how to get it done for my son's. Thank goodness all of my family lives up in Asheville, NC where the ceremony will take place, and that they have helped in such a way that all is running, so far, very smoothly and we have everything, so far (don't want to jinx anything!) that our young couple has asked for.
Here they are, our loves, 
Tristan K. Buie-Collard with his fiancee Amber Felice Lamprecht
and Marjorie Buie-Collard with her fiance Michael Dallas Fought, Jr.

  1. Wonderful Lisa - sounds like you will be having a fantastic couple of months ... beautiful photos and I'm so pleased your two have found their life partners ... just enjoy, relax, breathe! and live every moment with them ...lovely too having the family help on hand ... congratulations all round - Hilary

  2. What can I say, Lisa. I hope both weddings go off without a hitch (can one say that about a wedding? I thought getting hitched was the whole point) and that you and your husband, as well as your son (and his new wife) and your daughter (and her new husband) have a day to remember and to treasure.

  3. Congratulations Mom. I've only had one of my sons get married and my daughter-in-law planned everything for a small destination wedding.

  4. You're going to have a really special Mother's Day. Asheville will be a great place for a wedding.

  5. How lovely and everyone looks so happy. Glad it is all working out Lisa. Asheville is such a nice town too. My very best wishes to the prospective brides and grooms. GMD hugs to all of them.

  6. Congrats to you and the two lovely couples!! You'll be busy and so will they. Best wishes for a long and happy life together! And a fun wedding.

  7. How wonderful for you and them! Two weddings in a month, though. Gah! I don't envy you that. But then again, you'll get it all over with quick--like ripping off a Bandaid. LOL

    Congratulations to the happy couples. :)
