MY SISTER'S WEDDING


My sister got married to my (or, our; they met there) long term harbor colleague last saturday. It was a fine day that went by terribly fast.

Away in a Ford Mustang, oh yeah. (I snagged this one from our friend @Johannesslotte ...) 

The party was at a small old ship yard on the sailing club's island right outside of the absolute centre of Helsinki.

 
My youngest sister, brides maid. They (the bridesmaids) wore similar short versions of the wedding dress. 

And yes, I managed to finish my dress in time! It turned out pretty damn good although I of course succeeded in spilling nail polish on it the last minute before the wedding. Oh well, that's life. And, the stain wasn't that bad in the end; tiny as you can('t) see.

Oh oh oh lovely photos! Thanks sooo much for sharing. I'm at my desk at work and it was uplifting to see the wedding and gorgeous sisters and their gents. Almost brought a tear to my eye. Your green dress is splendid! Justine

There's quite a resemblance between you and your sisters, I thought for a moment that the pic of your younger sister was of the bride!

Looks like it was a beautiful day, these are lovely happy photos.

Your dress turned out amazingly!

The couple is looking very beautiful and happy and all of you three girls are very pretty. Your green dress is the bees'knees. You're a great seamstress apparently. I couldn't sew such a dress never. I like the colour and the shape and what is more it fits you like a glove.
