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.
