Update: here is the mirror in all its glory!
I know this is hard to see with the mirror but trust me, it looks fantastic. This turned out better than I had hoped for. The wedding colors are turquoise and navy. The vinyl lettering on the mirror is turquoise and navy. Amazingly the turquoise of the mirror frame and the vinyl match exactly. The mirror will be on a large easel at the entrance to the wedding reception.
The hardest part was getting the lines of numbers and wording spaced correctly. I had to have my husband do the math. I get lost when you start talking 1/2 of 9 and 3/4ths etc!

Yes, they dated 13 years before getting engaged! They were both in the 8th grade when they started dating and never dated anyone else in all those years! They have both recently graduated from the University of Missouri, with masters degrees. It’s quite a love story!
