April Wedding Weekend!

My dear friends Scott and Lauren got married the first weekend in April. We had just gotten back from Florida and were ready to celebrate our two pals!  Check out some of the fashion behind their beautiful wedding.
This is my absolute favorite shot of Scott and Lauren!

Lauren and I teach and coach together. Her fabulously fun mom is on the right!

It was SO great to see my Colesters! 
My dress: B.B Dakota. This color is jade. The fuchsia is on sale for $65! For under $100, you cannot beat this dress! (Hence why I have it in 2 colors-- heheh!!). 
Cross body book purse: Etsy.  (Our pal Ben thought I couldn't put down Pride and Prejudice novel and had to bring it with me to the wedding ceremony. baahhaha!). 

My sister is such a trooper-- 9 months pregnant and still looking gorgeous!
Anna's dress (c/o Jackie!): here (on sale!) or similar here (both maternity). 
Cheetah ballet flats: here or here for $24! Here is the pump version.
Pumps on me: here in black (my rose gold is sold out!).

I love this shot of past and present poms/dance coaches for West!
How amazing is Lauren's wedding gown?!

Stephanie (one of the bride's sisters) and Lindsey, the bride's cousin, both looked radiant at the wedding!
Lindsey's hair was so fabulous: it was curled and gathered to one side. She totally rocked it! Her hair was styled by Privato Salon in Oswego, IL. Everyone raved about how pretty it looked all night!

Melissa and Stephanie were the co-maids of honor! Their speech made everyone laugh and provided some tears, as they included a toast from their late Grandmother, who passed away in the fall. 
Lindsey's dress (on the right) old Limited: similar here, here, here (in navy) and here
Lindsey's shoes are Bandolino! Absolutely adorable and a great price point. 

Mrs. Miller's dress: Adrianna Papell. That beading! To die for!

Libby utilized Rent the Runway for her cobalt blue stunner. Rent it here in black. Here (those details!), here (DVF and full back zip-- what could be better?) and here (that back!) are blue options from RTR to duplicate that vibrant color!
My earrings: old Stella and Dot, similar here (on sale-- under $20!) and here

My forever wedding date! Isn't he cute??? 

A reminder of the back of this dress. I love the open back! Remember when I wore this in red to my friends Jon and Sarah's wedding? 

My Chicago besties. All the SMC gals together!
Julie's red dress can be rented here.
Maria's orange/white dress can be rented here.
Jackie's blush dress (maternity) similar here from ASOS. 
Both Anna and Jackie are 9 months pregnant! They were glowing at the wedding!

We had a blast celebrating Lauren and Scott! 
What's your go-to spring wedding look?


  1. Check out some of the fashion behind their beautiful pieces for wedding

  2. Once you get through initial "I know what's best" attitude of the manager here, you will agree that - he DOES know what's best, and he does not treat you like just some paycheck. During my wedding here, the wait staff from Chicago wedding venues was absolutely the best.
