Something Old, Something New...

Tyler's mother, Mary Orrison, was a San Antonio debutante in 1967. In addition to having glamorous long white hand gloves, and meticulously styled hair, Ms. Orrison had a beautiful dress detailed with lace of flowers and leaves.

After our upcoming ceremony on June 5th, when the cathedral length veil will be retired until the next family bride, I will don a hair ornament featuring this beautiful lace. The final design has yet to be determined, but I assure you, it will be fabulous!

Something Old...Something Borrowed

In the wedding, I will have a few very special items which were graciously lent to me by family. One of these items is a cathedral length veil, made of Belgium lace, which is a Steveson family heirloom. This veil was first worn by my mother's cousin Mary Francis Teahan at her 1960 wedding at St. Patrick's Church. Cousin Mary Francis has since been the caretaker of this veil, which was worn by my parents, countless relatives, and most recently my cousins Kim Perich and Marion Gammill-Keller.

I am SO excited to carry on the tradition of wearing this veil at our wedding.
