Wedding Fun!!!

Ok, so I have been so busy with traveling and life in general...but I MUST share photos from a wedding we went to a couple of weekends ago. 

All I have to say is: Breathtaking. 

Seriously. This was one of the most beautiful weddings I've ever been to...and it was pretty darn fun too! It was held at a mansion right on the water. Can you get any more perfect than that? They even had one of those fun photo booths...I think we visited it at least 5 times. 

Thanks to Cristina and Matt for an AMAZING time - CONGRATULATIONS!!!

So, really quick story from the wedding:

I was having major dress issues. After the ceremony, I realized that the hemming was all off, and it felt really awkard...not to mention it looked so terrible! 

How could I not notice this in the store?!?!?!

So, my friend Sarah went into emergency mode, and we came up with a plan. We were just going to cut part of the lining out because it was crooked. 

Well, we searched throughout the entire church nursery and finally found some first aid scissors. After cutting a bit of the lining, Sarah decided to Project Runway my dress...and literally cut the ENTIRE lining out of it. 

I was horrified at the thought of cutting out the entire lining, but it turned out perfectly. My dress fit even better than before!!!

Lesson Learned: No more half-price dresses.

I'm not sure I would have been brave enough to cut the lining out of my dress, but I'm glad it worked out for you
