Wedding Veil

RickMartin's picture

It has been almost a year since I last posted anything and 3.5 years since I posted my blog about the wedding veil I made for my daughter. I finally have an "in action" photo. She was married on 08/10/13. Mmario was the designer for the shawl, Vera Wang was the designer for the dress, and I have no idea who designed the cowboy boots she wore. If you want you can view more of the wedding veil photos on my flickr page at:

Boots and that's an inspired combination....the post and beam wedding dance site exhilarates as well. What a glorious event! Congratulations to you and yours. The veil is astounding!

Every person I encounter teaches me more about myself. Without whom not.

Wow...we knew it would be stunning and it exceeds even that expectation. Congratulations on creating a new family heirloom. And congratulations to your entire family on the wedding. Many Blessings to all of you.

Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.

Love it all - especially the boots and lace. Wang is a great designer. Your daughter looks beautiful as she should especially on such a wonderful day. Congrats. JRob

Absolutely amazing! It must be so special for her to wear something her dad made. MMario has such talent as a designer. Vera would be proud to pair the two garments together as well. You should send her some shots of it being worn. Congratulations on the wedding and the veil.

Isn't it?

MMario - I'm not divorced from reality - we're having a trial separation

Congratulations on creating such a beautiful gift for your daughter's big day. The veil is truly amazing and I am sure she will treasure it all her life.

Perfectly lovely bride! What a joy to have knitted your daughter's wedding veil!
I made my daughter's wedding dress...wasn't doing much knitting then...and still haven't knitted lace.
You and your daughter should be very proud....perhaps one day a granddaughter will wear it...
