Hey everyone! Happy Labor Day! I cannot believe we are already in September, honestly, where did summer go?! Well, at least I got to jet off to the east coast with my fiancé for our best friends wedding. We spent the whole weekend celebrating them with some of our friends who were also able to make it out with us for the long weekend.
I wore one of my favorite maxi dresses from Red Dress Boutique for the rehearsal dinner paired with my go-to Marc Fisher wedges because the dress does run a bit on the long side.
We laughed, we cried, we partied, and we prayed together with our dear friends and newlyweds, Alex and Anna. Their ceremony and reception were held on a beautiful farm in the backcountry hills of Virginia. We dodged some rain and thunderstorms during the rehearsal on Friday night and again in the evening of the wedding. Being from beautiful and sunny San Diego, it wasn’t even on my radar that it might downpour during the ceremony, which was outside! Thankfully, the clouds parted long enough for the couple to say their vows, slip on their new bling, snap a few photos and head to the reception inside a beautifully decorated barn, before the rain started pouring down.
For the wedding, I wore a lace midi dress from Nordstrom and got to wear my new Jeffery Campbell sparkling heels and yes I danced all night long without taking them off! Best heels ever!
All in all, it was a beautiful wedding with a beautiful couple and we couldn’t be more happy for them!
Thanks for reading along!
