party don't stop

My summer backyard wedding equation:
short dress (to keep cool) + girlie accessories (to add personality) + easy wedges (for walking in grass)
{ What I Wore: boutique dress // ModCloth crystal necklace // Ann Taylor gold wedges // J.Crew belt // H&M purse }

Get the Look:
floral dress {$50} + crystal necklace {$9} + pink belt {$10} + pink clutch {$78} + gold wedges {$48}
Ty and I had a wonderful day & night celebrating the marriage of his college friend 
(to his highschool sweetheart... cutest couple and story!)
The day was unusually hot for Portland, Oregon however, we had the advantage over the Oregonians... Oregon hot is nowhere near Nashville hot... and once the sun set and the gorgeous garden lights were lit, no one seemed to mind either way
Dancing to Call Me Maybe with friends (old and new) and then singing karaoke and enjoying yummy Northwestern beer until last call was the perfect celebration for such a beautiful union
Wedding season has been full of fabulous celebrations, and traveling from coast to coast
And while I have gotten quite the workout from laughing more than I can ever remember, I am tired...
My 25 year (+3 days) old self feels more like 80 this morning
Besides coffee, I have some amazing memories and future blackmail photos to keep me moving this Monday morning (totes worth it!)

  12. Love this backyard wedding look! You look gorgeous and the dress is lovely. Also, I agree, wedges are a must for outdoor weddings. I have made the mistake of wearing heels and walking like a dork sinking in the ground.
