Our Wedding: The Dress

My parents were married on December 31, 1984 in the same church as Kern and me, with the same organist that played in our wedding and I got the privilege of wearing my mother's dress, with a few alterations.

A local seamstress removed the sleeves, adding some more lace and buttons down the back.  Mom and I were in Mississippi Magazine showcasing the dress!


When my mother and father got engaged, Gran Fran gave my mom this gorgeous hand mirror--along with a note "To the Most Beautiful Bride in the World."

My mom passed it along to me.











This is the sixpence that my mother wore in her shoe on her wedding day!




It was such an honor to be able to wear my mother's dress.  It made a wonderful day even more meaningful and special.
