I was so excited to visit Ivory and Birch in Boardman, Ohio, when I was home for my bestie Megan's wedding showers in June. My other bff, Amanda, had gotten me the most adorable mug from Ivory and Birch last year when I was going through some really rough times, and every time I look at it, I am reminded to be strong and courageous. It was the most thoughtful gift, and I love drinking my coffee from it!
I went in to Ivory and Birch to pick out a dress for Mike's cousin's wedding. I knew it would be an outdoor ceremony and a rustic reception, so I was thinking of something a little more casual. I found THE PERFECT dress.
The detailing of the cross-front was just a small accent, but it really made the dress unique.
The colors were amazing, too!
Michael Kors watch: old, but similar here.
This tunic dress was the epitome of comfortable. I ate (all) the amazing food at Andrew and Stephanie's wedding without worrying about my food baby protruding. It was flowy but not too oversized! I went with a size small for reference.
Mike's bowtie was a dream! I had to turn the camera on him to capture it.
Flamingo bowtie: the Tie Bar.
Cheer Darling change purse: Kate Spade.
Maria bought me this change purse, and I use it every time I go out for an occasion. It's perfect for my ID, debit card, cash and credit card. It fits nicely in my small clutches. Also, it's so much easier than bringing my big wallet out and trying to stuff it in an evening clutch. Here's another adorable option!
My forever wedding date!
He's in gingam pants! MELT! He is so fashionable. One of the thousands of things I love about him.
How beautiful is that sunset? Shout out to our SIL, Lidija, for capturing this one outside the reception venue!
Another highlight of the wedding: Sarah (on the left) is a fellow belle! She graduated with me in 2009 from SMC! We had no idea that her cousin was the bride and Mike's cousin was the groom! Such a small world. And her sister, Kate, is on the right-- another SMICK chick! So happy to see them!
My sisters in law!
Lidija and Molly :)
Molly and her daughters, my adorable nieces!
Loved celebrating with them!
