Mother of the Groom

I recently was married on Guemes Island to my lovely wife Amber Kai. On our invitations we added a postscript that indicated folks should ‘dress inappropriately’. Luckily, my side of the family took this as a free license to dress as their true selves. 

One of the highlights for me was the color craftsmanship my mother put into her attire for my very special day.

What you may not be able to pick up from this photo is the necklace that she’s wearing. It is made up of large chunky beads and SHRINKY DINKS that my sister and I made for her circa 4th grade. For those out of the loop, Shrinky Dinksare a "children’s toy/activity kit consisting of large flexible sheets which, when heated in an oven, shrink to small hard plates without altering their color or shape. They reached the height of their popularity in the 1980s.“ 

Now this is some serious ‘Haute couture’.
