Larbs and Matt’s wedding was spectacular! From the bachelorette/bachelor party boat ride along marsh at sunset to the amazing food and company at the rehearsal dinner to the stunning bride and her handsome groom to the ocean backdrop…the amazing weather…the friends and family…the smoky shrimp dip…the chimichurri sauce…THE CAKE (both flavors)…and the romance that is still wafting through the air. I promised myself I’d let the professional photographer capture all the details so I could relax into the day, but somehow my own camera wound up with a number of special moments to share thanks to helping hands.

Oooh how pretty! I am in FULL wedding planning mode and not only am totally clueless but also totally unprepared for deciding anything. I love your bridesmaid dresses and how they are all the same length and color but different styles. They are gorgeous. You all look beautiful and happy in the pictures and the weather looks absolutely incredible.

What a perfect day. Congratulations to the new couple!

Larbs looked beautiful!!! So stunning.

Love that dress on you! That is one that could definitely be shortened and reused (and not just saying that!).

Bridal makeup is always so intense so that it shows up better in pictures–not really a natural look, but I bet the professional photos look great!

My sister has a home on BHI and is there for a few weeks now. You all had the best weather-sunny and warm. Looks like both you and your son were kissed by the sun! This weekend is a different story with the weather- Tropical Stoem Andrea is causing tons of rain and flooding. Y’all lucked out!

Wow! My breath was taken away here! My younger sister is getting married in September. We just had her bridal shower last weekend. As an older sister, I am sure you are feeling very similar emotions! Though, I am not yet married… so I am going through a bit of a different gamut haha As Maid of Honor, I am also wear a single strap dress! I love the elegant/Grecian look and feel of the one shoulder dress.

The happiness, romance, and exquisitely beautiful, loving memories that you have here are so apparent in your photos! The colors are so rich and I love Matt’s bow tie!

What were the two flavors of the cake?? My Sister’s top tier is going to be carrot cake. I am going to have a rum cake. A very saturated Italian rum cake haha

So lovely Kath. his post brought a huge smile to my face! Your family must me thrilled! Where is the honeymoon!?

If your mom doesn’t sharing where did she get her dress (name/designer)? My mom would love to wear a dress similar in style for my fall wedding!!

Reply

77 Mom June 7, 2013 at 4:21 am

The dress is Magic Formals-Moms. I found it at Bridal Mart. They look much prettier in real life than they do on this page: http://www.magicformals.com/ Mine comes in about five colors and was tons of fun to wear. It has a shawl, which I didn’t wear because it was warm and the church was on the informal side.

Thanks. It’s sitting on a rocking chair in my bedroom looking a little sad and crumply. Not sure I’ll get to wear it again but it sure was fun to wear at the wedding.
