Old, New, Borrowed, Robotic

Happy dance! We've had our wedding photography proof DVD for a few weeks, but grant deadlines (Sleeping at work! Bah!) have kept me from taking time to look through all 1,400 photographs. I've only been through the first half, but there are lots of lovely detail shots. All photographs below are courtesy of Purvis Photo.

My Something Old: My mother in law gave me her veil and bestowed her blessing to cut it to my needs. I removed it from its original Juliet cap and shortened it from a cathedral length veil into a waltz length veil. My mom used her new serger to add the trim of our choice to the edge. It's one of my favorite accessories from that day; it was a chance to wear a little piece of my mother and a little piece Mr. Lollipop's mother.

My Something New: I purchased new Capezio ballroom dancing shoes. My dress restricted me from putting them on by myself from a standing position. They were well-padded in the inside, but they weren't quite broken in despite several sessions of wearing them around the house. They wore the skin off of one my ankles soon after the ceremony. I'm glad that my coordinator brought plenty of band-aids.

My Something Borrowed: My Mom loaned me her wedding ring and I wore it during the ceremony. Below is a detail from a photograph of my bouquet, my hand is the one with the ring, and my mom's is the one without. My mom is great.

My Something Blue: I wore my blue robot watch purchased when we both lived in Nagoya. The little robot guy was upside down all day unless I checked the time, so I flipped the photo below so that he can look like he is having a little fun.

What is your old/new/borrowed/blue?
