She was also able to give me, my sister, and other cousins some of her jewelry that was given to her by my grandfather. She told us "That was one thing your grandfather never skimped on with me....this jewelry isn't from CVS you know. I always told him that he bought me too much nice jewelry but now I'm glad that he did, because I have all this great stuff to give to my children and grandchildren."
...Makes your heart melt right? I am extremely happy that the pearl necklace she gave to my sister looks amazing with my wedding gown. That will be my "something old" and/or "something borrowed" for the wedding day.
It could not look more perfect with my dress. I am so happy that my grandmother can be a part of my wedding day even though she cannot be there. I know that this means a lot to my mom, and especially to my grandfather as well.

What you have caught on film is captured forever...
it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything."
