Brides and Dads

July 30, 2010

I have the privilege of being a part of the inner circle on a wedding day.  I see lots of dynamics that play out.  Brides and their best friends; brides and their siblings; and brides and their moms.  All of this is wonderful stuff.  But being the bona fide daddy’s girl that I am, there’s something very special about seeing a bride interact with her dad on her wedding day.  It’s a heart-wrenching display of trust. . . that father is in essence handing over his treasure to another man.  
So this one is for all those dads.  The ones who wonder why I’m there to begin with, because their daughters couldn’t be more beautiful (with or without my help).

Think tie-die kinds of colors, yet in matte/satin finishes. This is especially appealing to me because all the shiny things MAC comes out with don’t […]
