Wedding Wednesday: 82 Year Old Matron of Honor

When Lucy and Jamie got married, they chose to involve their family in their ceremony. What made their wedding stand out, was the unconventional ways they chose to incorporate their family members into their celebration. 

Lucy and Jamie exchanged their vows in a traditional church wedding, surrounded by friends and family at the altar. The new Mr. and Mrs. exited the church to an instrumental rendition of The Beatles' "Luck in the Sky with Diamonds," performed on the church organ by Lucy's godfather. 

Lucy chose her two best friends as her bridesmaids, but for her matron of honor, Lucy chose one of the most important women in her life - her 82 year old grandmother! The happy couple went with a navy and pink color scheme for their wedding. The bridal party was adorned in navy dresses with pale pink shoes. The flower girl wore white like the bride, with a navy accent belt to match the bridesmaids' attire.

Lucy chose bridesmaids dresses that were the best fit and style for each member of her party. Her two friends opted for short, matching dresses while her grandmother wore a matching floor-length version with matching jacket. Bonus points to Lucy for choosing dresses that her bridesmaids could rewear. Grandma rewore hers to Lucy's 30th birthday party!

Jamie and Lucy added personal touches throughout their wedding to help guests break the ice and feel at ease. Place cards were labeled with guests' nicknames or anecdotes about the guest. The goal was to give family and friends a talking point so everyone could strike up a conversation and get to know each other. 

The day's pink theme was especially evident in the dessert portion of the reception. Guests munched on pink iced cupcakes and sweets. Pink flowers decorated the tops of the tables in the venue as well as the tops of the cupcakes. 

Congratulations to Jamie and Lucy!
