My Wedding Day, December 1981

My Wedding Day, December 1981, originally uploaded by confections.

I've been scanning family photos this week and came upon this one taken just before I got married on the beach in a cove near the Point Loma Lighthouse in San Diego, California.

I handmade my wedding dress from a vintage fine lawn eyelet bedspread that I had bought at a garage sale in Houston, where we had lived before moving to California.

We've celebrated our Silver Wedding Anniversary (plus one and a half) and are still going strong.


  1. thats so cool that you made your own wedding dress - thats a true labor of love!

  2. Just found you through Etsy forums and had to say this dress is amazing! You did a beautiful job with it. San Diego is my favorite city in the world, I can just picture your wedding and how breathtaking a view you had of the cliff and ocean. Congratulations on a long and lasting marriage :)

  3. Absolutely beautiful! Congratulations.

  4. I enjoyed the pictures of your family, but my favorite was you on your wedding day. The dress is
    fabulous and you look great from head to toe. I can just imagine the wedding at the beach. How
    beautiful! - Rita from Chadds Ford
