The biggest project of my spring was Anna's wedding. I know I'm not the only Haley who is saying this. She and Victor decided to get married at my church, so David and I felt responsible for making it the perfect venue for her. We are blessed with a beautiful home-away-from-home in New Heights Chapel, but any sanctuary can be improved for a wedding, right? If NHC's sanctuary has any problem, it's the space next to the windows over the altar. I take it back: the space isn't a problem; it's an opportunity!
|It took 80 hours to make 5,000 cherry blossoms.|
I started by ironing tissue paper and cutting it into 5,000 rounds. Then I took each round and rolled it into a blossom.
|It took the trees about 2 hours to dry after I sprayed them|
with boat-grade polyurethane.
Mama graciously loaned us "Sue," her new Subaru Outback. We laid down the seats, covered them in tarps, and took the limbs to our chapel. There David and I spent a Saturday burning our fingertips with hot glue.
The 5,000 blossoms took about 25 hours to glue onto the tree limbs.

soms the weekend before Anna's wedding. What
a husband! What a brother! What a trooper!
