Letters from Lycette

Officially Mr. & Mrs. Needlepoint

Officially Mr. & Mrs. Needlepoint

Greg and I were married October 10th, 2020 in Naples, FL. Originally we were slated to be married in Vermont at the Woodstock Inn on the same date; however, this was not possible due to our guest list and restrictions due to COVID-19. Instead, we opted for a small 15 person wedding- immediate family only.  

We were married at 9:30 AM on the beach with brunch immediately after. I wore a custom dress. My something blue was my late grandmother's sapphire ring, my something old was Great Grandma Lycette's charm bracelet, my something borrowed were Mama Lycette's pearls, and my something new was my headband and shoes. My bouquet featured hydrangeas and bunches of kale in purple, of course. Wrapped around the bouquet was a handkerchief my aunt had hand embroidered (Greg wore one as well) and the handkerchief that Greg's grandmother Kay had carried on her wedding day. I adored incorporating touches of loved ones who could not be there with us. 

I walked down the aisle with my father to a cello and violin playing "She's a Rainbow" by The Rolling Stones, Mr. Needlepoint and I  walked up the aisle to the same instruments playing "Heart like a Wheel" by Eric Church. 

Although it was not what we had planned, our wedding was more than we ever imagined. Below are small snippets of our special day- in order to protect the privacy of our family members we mainly included photos of ourselves.  

Special note to any future brides out there- I had extreme anxiety about my weight leading up to the wedding. On your wedding day it will be the last thing you are thinking about, it will be the last thing your groom or bride notices. I don't even notice it when I look at these pictures, all I see is happiness. A wedding is more than a dress or a dress size- it's about honoring and joining together with your best friend and partner. I am so happy I married Mr. Needlepoint. 

This is just the beginning, we are so excited to continue stitching with y'all. Officially now as Mr. & Mrs. Needlepoint!

Oh Greg and Jessica – Congratulations! Thank you dearly for sharing your day of abundance with all of us, your happy supporters and well-wishers. Every moment captured radiates the strength and solidarity of your love. Jessica, you have sent a powerful message to brides to be; I’ve admired and support the remarkable ability you have to share such purposeful introspection with your readers. A woman of true grit and you are blessed to have each other! Hold to that love in the years ahead. Pamela

Congratulations! My husband and I were married on the beach in Naples, too! My hope for you both is that you will be as spectacularly happy as hubs and I. I am a crocheter, but have been following your IG page for awhile. Trying to decide on an appropriate first project. Maybe a saying for a pillow? We’ll see!

You are a gorgeous, happy couple and the love you share is so evident. My husband and I were married in a private wedding ceremony at the historic Stoneleigh Hotel at 11am in Dallas on a beautiful fall day 28 years ago and had a beautiful luncheon afterwards before we boarded a plane for our honeymoon in Carmel. It was everything we wanted and so much less stress than the huge wedding I had for my first marriage. Thank you for sharing these beautiful photos with all of us!💜
