wedding weekend recap, in pictures!

needless to say, we had an absolute blast at Erin & Jon's wedding last weekend in Atlanta! every moment of our days were jammed packed with fun activities - just the way i like it... Welcome BBQ, Ladies Luncheon, Polish Party, Rehearsal and Rehearsal Dinner, gettin' pretty, ceremony at Peachtree Methodist, reception at Atlanta Botanical Gardens, and lots of beverages in between at the W Hotel in Buckhead - phew!

of course Erin was an absolutely stunning bride and all my lovely Wake gals were out in full force! as i've mentioned before, celebrating the nuptials of 3 out of my core group of 7 has been such incredible fun this year! i was about to be uber-bummed that after Erin's wedding we wouldn't all be seeing each other almost every month for some fiesta or another, but fabulous SAI stepped up the plate and is getting married next April! woo hoo for more festivities!

all the girlies at the Swan House for brunch
"Polish Party" - nails & (non-scandalous) honeymoon items... my pick was Julie & Julia for beach reading (thanks Maggie!)

update: to answer all of your email questions...


  1. Awww, you girls look so pretty! Despite the sauna qualities,that color is great on all of you. And Erin is gorgeous!

  2. Too sweet... that looked like one FAB Atlanta wedding weekend - how fun!?!

  3. What a beautiful wedding! Loved that she had her new monogram on her viel :) The "polish party" is such a cute idea! I almost always gift monogrammed towels as wedding gifts :)
    Looks like you all had a great time!

  4. The bride looks gorgeous!! What a beautiful dress!

    Looks like you had an amazing time! So neat that you have such a large group of great friends.

  5. I love the bride's dress and even the bridesmaid's dresses were gorgeous. You always hear such horror stories about them. Great pictures - looks like a blast!

  6. What a beautiful wedding! You all look stunning. And obvs had a lot of fun! I love the pics of the guys being goofy. It's nice to know that it's not just mine who is a ham for the camera!

  7. seriously...we should leave the menfolk out of the pictures and just take them of ourselves...D. and his "elvis" look is not what we have in mind when we said "pose for the camera"...1) yay for more plotting of world domination in a WEEK 2) heck yeah SAI stepped up to the plate, its going to be fantastic!!

  8. Looks like a wonderful wedding weekend! My bridesmaids said the same thing about their dresses-- hot hot hot. And what a gorgeous bride!

  9. LMAO- ohh, these pictures are awesome. You look like you have a blast where ever you go. I also really liked the slate blue dresses with the multi-colored bouquets, too. So elegant, but soooooo pretty.


  10. I was in a wedding in Atlanta in late June last year- we also had sauna dresses- long navy silk. Those are so pretty on ya'll though, heat rash inducing qualities aside. Flattering too!

    My college bfs had 2 weddings in 2 weeks this summer (one was mine), and now we are dying for someone else to get engaged. We've had a lot of weddings in the past year, but now its crickets on the horizon.

  11. Heck yeah for a shout-out on this fabulous blog! I'm so glad to have a wonderful friend in the blogging business who can post all of my pretty pictures when I get married :)

    Great pictures, K, especially the one of you and my boy J... love it! But they are all hilarious and just made me laugh. Can't wait to do it again soon!

  12. Beautiful ladies! I love the bouquets!

  13. You look beautiful. I'm loving the blue with the bright flowers! Hopefully I can make CT tomorrow and hear all about it! Otherwise, Sat. night!

  14. Smashing! Love all the pictures and the colors she chose. Perhaps you helped her picked the color that would look best on you? Selfish, no? ha ha, glad you had a great weekend.
