wedded bliss

Oh weddings... not sure if it is the love in the air, or the open bar, but weddings are my new favorite thing. It is so amazing to see my friends grow up and meet the person of their dreams, and then get to celebrate in their major milestone. 2 more weddings this season... bring it on! I'll better start practicing my Wobble!
{ What I Wore: H&M dress & clutch // Nine West Wedges (similar) // J.Crew belt (similar) }

Ty's friend from college married the sweetest girl at a beautiful chapel on Vanderbilt followed by a reception at the historic Union Station here in Nashville. Neither the couple not the night could be more perfect. Cheers to their beautiful union and a happy life together.
Getting dressed up to cut a rug at the reception!
How's your wedding season shaping up? 
Are ALL of your friends getting married this year like mine?!

  4. :) You look super cute, LOVE this dress! And actually... last year all of my friends were getting married.  This year I have one friend getting married this summer, but in Mexico! I will be attending her reception back in the States though.  Otherwise, not another wedding until November! I think it is so fun though to see different wedding looks! The paisley dress is just perfect!

  10. You look beautiful!  That dress is lovely, and the red lips are so great. Most of my friends are already married so I actually only have one to attend this summer.  Did your friends get married at the Scarritt Bennett center?  I actually called off a wedding back in 2006 (it was for the benefit of us both!), and our ceremony was going to be there.  Such a beautiful chapel.

  11. Thanks dear! So funny how at different stages, all of our friends decided to get married around the same time... Mexico sounds fab, I understand not being able to attend, but I hope the reception is rocking! xx

  14. Oh goodness... That stressed me out just thinking about going to 5 more weddings this year! Good luck lady! xx

  15. Yes it was there... Been going to Vandy for 3 years, and it was my first time inside... Definitely gorgeous. The ceremony was held at sunset, and the light coming through the stained glass was beyond words. Small world about you booking your almost-ceremony there... And glad to hear that everything ended for the best in your situation xx

  26. It seems like everyone is getting married! But weddings are fun to go to! I love this dress. It's not to dressy and not too casual.  It looks great on you :)

  27. Thank you Grace. It was actually pretty funny that I wore this dress, because when I walked into the church, it seemed like every woman was wearing floor length black dresses... epp! But in the end I felt comfortable all night, so it worked out perfect!

  36. I LOVE this dress. This outfit is so well put together -- love how you tied the belt. I always like seeing another southern girl style blogging (does anyone else really understand the humidity we deal with?) and I'm totally following you now! 

    Went to Nashville for the first time last month and loved it. Will be making a weekend trip there soon.

  46. Thank you dear! I guess I am on the young side of my friend spectrum since I entered grad school straight out of undergrad... I still have many wedding seasons ahead of me! I wasn't ever a girl to be planning my wedding, but after being involved in a couple this year, I am already forming an opinion of what I want and do NOT want in my own! so silly!

  47.  Never hurts to be prepared!!  I was kinda bummed that I didn't have more examples to help me plan my own.  :o)
