Last year in May I had a daughter get married in a lovely understated ceremony on the beach, followed by a magical “Mama Mia” inspired celebration. There were colorful paper lanterns strung everywhere, a steel drum playing in the background and brightly patterned sarongs, tablecloths and batiks haphazardly covering an assortment of miss-matched tables, it was simply stunning. It was my daughter’s vision from the start and fully realized thanks to the help and participation of family, friends and neighbors who lent their creativity, moral support and muscle to the project. Now we’re doing it again, this time it is a different daughter and of course a different vision but once again it will be at the beach. This time around I’ll keep you all informed as we dance, stitch, cook and create our way to another dream wedding.
