Kara and Josh's Wedding: Nautical Looks!

My beautiful cousin, Kara, married the love of her life, Josh, on Saturday in Shelbyville, Michigan. The location/venue was absolutely stunning; everything was on the property of the hotel, and you could walk from the hotel to the reception to the wedding to cocktail hour within a minute or two. It was just stunning! The weather cleared for the wedding! It was like God giving a little blessing down on the newlyweds!

^^ Mom and I fighting over Finn, haha! Just minutes after arrival. He's the best!! 
Mom's Lilly:

My Lilly popover (that I literally wear every time I travel! PS- I got it on the Lilly After Party Sale for $64!) :

The view from our room at the Bay Pointe Inn!^^

Friday night for the rehearsal dinner, I wore this dress from Nordstrom. Do you remember this post?  Or this one? I have now worn it for two weddings and two rehearsal dinners! Oh, and Valentine's Day! :) 

It fits TTS (maybe even a smidge big!), and I am wearing a 4.

Remeber Caitlin and Neil's wedding in October? My other cuzzies? We had such a blast together!

These gold wedges are my go-tos! I wear them soooooo much. I am due for a new pair, but they are still holding up from the original purchase date of July 2012 for my Mom's wedding! lol! Anna wore hers for the wedding, too! LOL. 

Cousins with the beautiful bride!

Okay, those baby adirondacks! We said we needed to put Bella and Bentley on them. LOL

Love the cut-out back on this dress! 

My studly hubs!!! 

It was a total impulse buy at the Kate Spade outlet in Florida for $70, but seriously, I have been searching for a fun/whimsical clutch for weddings for about two years!

How cute were the coozies? #ahoyHoyer was the #!

So basically Gary's blazer was the greatest blazer I had ever seen in my life. 
He has an eye for *fun* fashion, and this blazer was absolutely perfect for the nautical wedding!
Also, it's on sale! Holler. 
Don't worry: he also has the pants. LOL

My hubs and step dad! 
Mike's bow tie had flamingos on it! #nautical

My dress is the Ashlyn style in the re-released "You Gotta Regatta" from last summer. It was under $100 on the Lilly After Party Sale.
It was the perfect fit in size 6, except for the top. I had my amazing seamstress take it in, but the length and bottom didn't need any alterations! Please talk to me if you're in the western burbs-- Charice is the best seamstress! She is so talented. She has probably altered 15+ dresses for me. She is based out of Bartlett. 

My earrings here in yellow for under $20! 
Similar styles of the drop earrings that are huge right now:

Love this guy ;)

They are so cute :)

Now for some iPhone snaps: 

The most adorable little boy at the wedding! 

All flamingo'd out! 

Kara and her mom's side of the family! HOW gorgeous does she look?! 

Kara's Aunt Rhonda! How darling is this cold shoulder dress? Love! 

I loved all of Kara and Caitlin's friends! Remember when I wore this dress? I love it so much on Danielle! 

our sweet "baby" cousin! We love you so much! How amazing is that dress?! It was two pieces!!!

Kara with her mom and aunts! Love this! 

Have you ever been to a wedding on the water? It was so gorgeous! 
I hope Kara and Josh are having a blast on their honeymoon in Jamaica! Love you guys!
