Weddings are the best.
There’s no other way to put it and the one we went to this past weekend was pretty amazing. On Thursday night, Drew and I hopped in the car, along with our friends Grant and Kelly, to head south to Point Clear, Alabama for Dean Wilkinson and Frances Houston’s wedding. Nine hours and lots of Wendy’s later we made it to the Gulf for a weekend of fun at the Grand Hotel Marriott.
Fran and Dean were the ultimate hosts (they had a room stocked full of snacks, drinks and beer at the hotel just for guests!) and we couldn’t have had more fun if we tried. I think my sides still hurt from laughing so hard at the rehearsal dinner after-party. Even a little rain on Saturday couldn’t slow us, or our eating, down (if you’re ever in the town of Point Clear, stop by Sandy’s Place for a Chicken Salad Sandwich Melt. You won’t regret it).
I love doing style spotting at weddings (even if Drew HATES it) so I broke out the camera to take some snaps of some stylish guests. Oh and sorry for the lighting in the pics – it was super dark in the hotel ballroom.
Bailey and Courtney
First off, Bailey would look awesome in a paper bag. Second, I love how she threw a white blazer over this black & white dress. I had to include the creepy close-up so you could see the detail on the dress. The bridesmaid dresses were really simple which I loved, I also am pretty obsessed with Courtney’s sandals.
Dakota and Cary’s
If I could raid any Louisville gals closet, I may have to go with Cary’s. She always looks so chic and this colorful maxi did not disappoint. And the simple gold cuff was the perfect accessory to compliment but not overpower the look. Dakota’s dress is one of those ideal closet staples. A great silhouette, fabric and color that works for almost anytime of year. Plus I want to steal that bow bag.
Louise & Stephen
Louise and I used to work together and I couldn’t have been happier to get the chance to catch up at the wedding. This pink and green combo isn’t the traditional southern one but I love the bright color with the mint necklace. p.s. – How cute is she?
