Wedding Season

Yesterday two of my good friends from college got married.  It is so wonderful to be able to share in the joy of your friends' bliss! They were married in the small church she and her family attend near their house, and they had a lovely outdoor reception at a tree farm and nursery.  They had a big, white tent with tiny, twinkling white lights strung up along the outside, and there were gorgeous gardens all around.  Plus, check out that flamingo.  Pretty cool, right?

This dress is my college graduation dress, but this is the third wedding I've worn it to since I got it last summer.  It is by far my favorite dress that I own.  I was first drawn to its unique, eye-catching floral pattern, and then I was smitten with its vintage-inspired cut.  It's my go-to summer dress.  The red-orange shoes I had already when I got the dress, and they just happened to match perfectly.  I'm definitely glad I wore this breezy dress on that muggy summer day.


  1. That print is so pretty! I love finding vintage-inspired pieces like that, because while I love my vintage, it's nice to have a few go-to dresses that you don't have to be so careful with. (If that makes sense. haha!)

    Those gardens are really stunning! (They remind me a bit of Phipps Conservatory here in Pittsburgh.) And weddings always make me happy and nostalgic. :)

  2. That is a beautiful dress! I can see why it is your go-to summer dress!

    Glad you had fun at the wedding!

  3. Gorgeous dress! I love floral prints with lots of colors and a sort of impressionistic (?) look. I almost bought a blouse with a print like that at Anthropologie once, and I've regretted not getting it. The wedding setting in these photos is beautiful too!

  4. Your dress is the most incredible print! <3 I love your shoes too!

    Lost in the Haze

  5. Wow, such a beautiful location! Love the little house surrounded by all those trees <3


  6. such a pretty print and that house and pond are out of a fairy tale.

  7. Oh wow that pattern is beautiful! So perfect for summer, and I love how simply you styled it! Also, that flamingo bush is so adorable!



Thank you very much for stopping by! I appreciate your feedback! :)
