Wedding season. For me this means four weddings, three bachelorette parties, a handful of rehearsal dinners and of course, the bridal showers and engagement parties.  If you are anything like me this year, your calendar is full of fun events for friends and family. That also means a lot of outfit planning in my near future.

  1. Floral Dress / 2. Headband / 3. White Dress / 4. Gold Earrings / 5. Pastel Midi Dress / 6. Nude Sandals / 7. Silk Dress / 8. Ruffle Slides / 9. Ganni Dress / 10. Hoop Earrings

Bride and Groom Kissing

It is crazy to think it has been two years since we said I do. It feels like yesterday, I was getting ready with all “my people” before walking down the isle to marry my best friend. Patrick and I have been together for nine years and today we are celebrating our second wedding anniversary.

WEDDING BLISS: GETTING READY

Getting Ready-03-4770

I am so excited to finally be sharing all of the details for our wedding with you! Be sure to head over to Style Me Pretty today to see all the details. It’s been almost 4 months since we said ‘I do’ and I only felt it was necessary to relive the wedding for an entire week (be sure to follow #adodweddingweek for behind the scenes pictures on Instagram).  I get teary eyed every time I catch myself scrolling through the pictures on my phone because there was so much love that filled the entire weekend.  After 6 years of dating, I could not have imagined the overwhelming sense of love and compassion that surrounded the day.  To kick off the week, today I am starting with my girls! Getting Ready-15-000060150007Getting Ready-20-9402 Getting Ready-12-9529 Getting Ready-12-9458 Getting Ready-15-000060400013 Getting Ready-15-000060150010Getting Ready-19-000060270002

My oldest and best friends stayed with me the night before the big day. We took a dip in the hot tub, jumped on the beds, listened to our favorite 90s music, and told stories late into the night. I knew I wasn’t going to be able to sleep the night before, so I couldn’t have imagined a more perfect group to be with me! All of the girls arrived early in the morning and the first bottle of champagne was popped! Bridesmaids gifts hung from personalized hangers I made, a gorgeous Eberjey robe and a pair of BaubleBar studs to wear for the day.  I searched high and low for the perfect robes, and thanks to Eberjey we found the perfect something blue for the day.

Instead of exchanging gifts, Patrick and I decided to sit down the night before the wedding and write each other a note. I love how Elyse Hall captured the emotion reading our letters.

Stay tuned, tomorrow is all about the dress and my favorite moment, the first look.

If you can’t wait until tomorrow, head over to Style Me Pretty for the lots of pictures and wedding bliss!

WEDDING DETAILS: THE DRESS

Dress1 Dress2 Dress3 Dress4 Dress5

Every girl dreams of wearing a beautiful white dress on their big day.

As a little girl, I imagined wearing a dress just like Cinderella. I would watch the movie over and over, but fast forward to the end just to see her in that pretty dress.  In my teen years, I used to sketch wedding dresses in my school notebooks (my friend just found a few of my funny sketches when cleaning out her desk at her parent’s house). I would spend hours on the little details that would be used as embellishments on the dress. As I get older, I find my style evolving and finding a timeless dress is what I am on the hunt for.  I have been pinning dresses (like a crazy person) on my Wedding Details board, and have a few I have been keeping to myself because after all, it has to be a surprise.

I have yet to start my dress hunt (I know insert: Gasp Here) but I am a very decisive person, so I know when I find the “one,” I will feel just like Cinderella.
