Timeline: Tying the Knot

Sonya and Shawn Hemmings; Sept. 2, 1995; The Farm at South Mountain; Phoenix, Arizona.

I would say that I can’t believe it’s been 15 years since Shawn and I were married, but when I see how young we look in this photo (fewer wrinkles, more hair!), there’s no denying that a bit of time has passed. 🙂 It was a hot day for an outdoor wedding (just ask our friends and family members, who kindly indulged us), but we wanted our wedding to mark the seventh anniversary of our first date—and it did! Most of my memories revolve around all of the handmade touches brought together on this day: With the help of several friends and my sisters, I sewed my dress, fashioned Shawn’s ring, designed and hand-lettered the invitations (which featured a decorative molded-paper cover), and cross-stitched bookmark favors for the guests. I know, I know—so over-the-top. What can I say? The things you do for love when you’re young and carefree with maybe a little too much spare time. . . . 🙂
