Wedding Weekend Rundown!

So that wedding that I went to last weekend... New Dress A Day - wedding picture

...was filled with all of my most favorite friends from college. We make quite the colorful group!!

The gorgeous bride and groom, J & S...

...had the most magical day.

From the amazing snacks that were keeping us far from "hangry" during the ceremony...

...to the parasols that we all got to use to keep the sun from beating down on us! (Not to mention, they made the PERFECT photo props!!)

One of the coolest elements was the surfboard that was used to list all of our table numbers on it. The groom surfs, so this was such a cool tie in!

I scored my dress at a sample sale ($20, say what?!?)...

...but before I could wear it, I had to make a minor tweak. The waist was a little big, so I DIY'ed the easiest belt ever. Here's the easy trick.

1. Find a vintage brooch.

2. Find a piece of matching ribbon.

3. Pin the brooch to the ribbon.

4. Put on belt.

5. Done!!!

The watercolor table cards were stunning (the bride's father made them all!!) but the best part was that the menu card was crayon-checkable to pick the tacos of our choosing! LA's Border GrillĀ catered...

...and the tacos (and Coronas) were perfection on this warm summer night!!

The bride made the rounds in her SICK dress that I was obsessed with...

...and I even found someone in a matching animal print. We became BFFs by the end of the night. Stefanie is really the coolest lady ever!

So when the cake was cut and passed around, it was super dark. I mean SUPER dark. We were dancing and I took a bite break from the dance floor and my bite tasted kind of floraly. Yep, it's because my bite had this big flower on top of it. I went to the cake table afterwards and took this picture. I literally ate that flower on top. Geez, Maris.

Because the new couple's last name is Fox, there were lots of fox masks around for photo ops. Ron and I couldn't resist...

(Pretty floral display, right?)

I was taking my own fox shot when...

...I got photobombed by the bride!! Best kind of photobomb.

I got in the photo booth with N and some pairs of big sunnies, because when there are big sunnies, you wear them!

By the end of the night, our feet hurt in the best way possible - from all the dancing. I mean at the end of the night, while you're waiting at valet, the best idea ever is to have a maple donut from King's. I just say that I gipped from my cake bite, so I had to compensate with a donut.

I think that my favorite pick from the evening was this one...

New Dress A Day - Me & Angelina Jolie

When you've got a slit, you use it. Just couldn't resist giving my best Angelina...
