My Best Friends Wedding

Congratulations to Jannet & Rob!

This weekend, my best friend got married. It is such a different experience to be personally involved in a wedding rather than be coordinating it. It's a very emotional experience when your best friend gets married. This was especially evident in the amount of tears I shed throughout the day! As the Maid of Honor, it was a relatively stress free day for me, as Jannet used many of the wedding professionals that I use on a weekly basis. She used the best of the best and it was a flawless, well-executed day.

Cast of Characters:

Rehearsal Dinner: McLoone's Pier House

Hair & Makeup: Michelle Lo Conte

We just narrowly missed a storm but it wound up being a gorgeous afternoon! If you look closely there are starfish all along the aisle and awesome nautical rope ties with starfish on the aisle seats.

Jannet wore a Paloma Blanca Dress, style 3854 from Bijou Bridal.

She had these adorable fan programs that were a big hit in the July sun.

This photo brings tears to my eyes every time I see it! Her parents are some of the loveliest people I have ever met in my life.

First time as Mr. & Mrs.!

A few nautical details. The life preserver from Pottery Barn Kids was used as the guest book. Each guest signed with a silver paint pen.

I love the starfish in the sandbox!

The cake was red velvet (the bride's absolute favorite) and cannoli.

The bridesmaids all wore Two Birds Bridesmaids Dresses. I can't even begin to tell you how comfortable they were. We didn't want to take them off. We got so many compliments and I can legitimately say that I can (and can't wait to) wear it again!

Congratulations to Jannet & Rob! I can't thank you enough for allowing me to be a part of your special day. I love you both an insane amount and cannot wait for you to get home from your honeymoon! xoxo
