August 2, 2013

It was so much fun to spend time with our wedding party. The bridesmaids and groomsmen were all either siblings of the bride or groom or dear friends. Special memories were made as we spent time with them over the weekend and on the wedding day.

The wedding party’s attire fit into the casual elegant theme. We asked the guys to show up in blue blazers and khaki-colored pants while the ladies were asked to pick out a navy dress of their choice.

The bridesmaids and I got to enjoy some time together while we waited for the guests to arrive.

Since the wedding took place on our land, there were plenty of fun locations to take photos!

    1. Thanks! Soooo much hairspray…..;-) It’s from the formal-event section in Macy’s! It’s not even officially a wedding dress but I was super frustrated with the wedding dress options I was finding, so I got brave and branched out a little into some neutral colors. When I put tried it on for the first time, I didn’t want to take it off (like, ever)!

      1. I was even thinking that you should totally wear it again for some gala because it is PERFECT. Bravo. I love everything I’ve seen of your wedding and I am so sad that we missed it!

        1. Hannah, I would totally wear it again!;-) Maybe dyed? Although I love the champagne color. You’re so sweet. I’m sad you guys missed it too but I’m glad we can all enjoy it allllll over again through pictures! 😉

  1. I love your dress! It looks so….. confident. You should re-purpose it into a party dress so you can wear it over and over. Or…. save it. 😉

    I also love the navy bridesmaids dresses. Really fun! Your two younger sisters are so grown up and pretty! I can’t believe it. And I love both of their dresses.

    Really enjoying the wedding pictures and descriptions!

    1. Monica, you’re so sweet! I love the dress and I FULLY intend to wear it again!! I don’t think I’ve ever put on a dress that fit me so well and first-met. I’d even consider dying it….

      Don’t the girls look stunning? I couldn’t believe how beautiful they all looked. I’m having so much fun posting the pictures…I’m glad someone is enjoying looking at them too.;-)
