Where have I been? Getting Married!!!

The Wedding was beautiful and magical but we are still both exhausted - so many details!  Whew.  We had nearly 50 people come in from out of town and most of them were at our house the night before the wedding.  It was great!  During the reception I realized I had forgotten to wear something blue.  However when we finally got home and I started pulling the pins out of my hair I realized I had left a blue hot roller in my hair the whole time.  That was how dazed I was!  I don't think anyone saw it because of the veil but I was laughing.  Well I got my blue!  The flower girls walked down the aisle to Down to the River to Pray.  And the recessional was America the Beautiful done by Ray Charles.  Dancing and cocktails were on the big back porch of this beautiful Southern Plantation.  Dinner was in the gorgeous dining room.  All my girlfriends were running around the house playing Gone With The Wind.  It was just wonderful!  I need a couple days to recover and then I will be painting!  See you all soon.


  1. Congratulations! You are such a beautiful bride, and the groom is pretty cute too! I love the "blue" story! That will be one of those great stories to pass down through the generations! I love it!

  2. Congratulations Carrie Joy! You looked wonderful and your new husband is so handsome!
    I laughed out loud about the curler. I am so happy for you!


  3. Congratulations!! You are stunning as a bride! The blue curler story is hilarious too. I wish you both the very best. Good luck when you start painting again.

  4. How wonderful!! Congratulations and many years of happiness, health and wealth to you both!
    Looking forward to your new paintings on etsy!

  5. Congratulations Carrie! What a gorgeous couple! May you have many, many happy years together!
