@BurlapnLace:  wow. I’m crying. My grandfather (who was like a dad to me) passed in 2010. Before he passed, he had a conversation with my dad that it was time for him to step up and “take care” of my sister and I. My dad and I have never had a good relationship, and planning my wedding has been such a bonding time for us. He has helped more than I could ever imagine. id like to think my sweet grandfather has something to do with it. I’m having a portrait painted of him for my dad in thanks. Anyways, I can imagina what an emotional and sweet moment that was for you and your mom 🙂

oh god, I’m at my desk and trying so hard to not cry because I have to talk to guests, otherwise I would be bawling. That is so beautiful. I’m sure she’s looking down on you and absolutely beaming with pride. I’m sure they will both be walking you down the aisle on your wedding day.
