Wedding weekending

It's Monday already. I feel like in the last few weeks Ive been busier than ever. If its not my thesis, its work, if it neither of those, its friends and life being full. One of those "full" things happened to be the wedding of a good friend and colleague of mine. She met her now husband years ago when we were in law school and since they got engaged last year we have all been waiting for this wedding. I didn't ask her permission to show her face so I'll post what I can. 

Also before I start can I just say that you need not spend a lot to look good at a wedding? I straight up wore this Forever 21 dress to the wedding. Eighteen bucks.
Found here 
(The medium I wore is sold out now but small is available :D)

She rolled into the church in style ... not my style but certainly style - stretch hummer anyone?

Church selfie ... this is probably not the best church etiquette for anyone wondering. ha!

Her dress was stunning!! And so were the bridesmaids dresses!

And then car selfies on the way to the reception - the hair came down because Im a rebel. Or because it was giving me a headache. One of those.

The venue and decorations were gorgeous:

And I was VERY bad and had cake ... and drinks.

And then we danced the night away ...

One more picture of me because ... me.
All in all it was a good weekend as my past few weekends have been. It came at a great time after a pretty stressful week. I like when life is mixed equal parts stress and fun. All work and no play makes me VERY grumpy! 

And before I forget today I'm teaming up with some lovely ladies for a giveaway

  11. Another gorgeous winning! Also I think dancing cancels out drinks and champagne! At least I'm of that opinion anyhow!

  12. Looks like a beatiful wedding. I don't see yellow as a wedding color often so that just made it more unique. Her dress is gorgeous! As is yours. Would love to see a full shot of your accessories etc.

  29. Yay, weddings! I haven't been to one in way too long. Some of my friends need to hurry up and get married. I always love that style of dress like the one you wore-but I feel like I can't pull off the "bodycon" look--they just look a little funny on me!

  30. How about the hair came down because you're hot?! ;) I love a good wedding. Pretty much everyone there is in a celebratory mood and looking to have fun with full hearts. What's not to love about that?
