Motherhood is hard, makeup doesn't have to be.
I simplify makeup for busy moms.

If I were a wedding, I’d be this one

Hey girls! We celebrated Ashley’s wedding this weekend, and omygeez, what a wedding it was. 
Friday we had the bridal luncheon where we had fabulous champagne… 

and were gifted these beauties.

{kate spade Sweet Zinnia Crystal Studs} OBSESSED.

Rehearsal dinner was later that evening and I wore sissy’s dress from Macy’s (I forget designer) that she wore on Family feud. I just think the colors are so fab.

Then came wedding day! Yay. I was in heaven, because i was surrounded by pink girly bliss, AND mimosas. I mean… it doesn’t get better.

Some getting ready shots of course. I did my own hair (I just can’t relinquish that control! ha), but got my makeup done. I was a nervous wreck, I dislike letting other people do any of my hair or makeup, but thought what the heck maybe I’ll learn something.

Ya know what I learned?

To not let other people do my makeup. HAHA. No it really was fine, but I am just very particular about what I like, but a few little touch ups and I was feeling great. (excuse the pre-makeup shot below)

Our bridesmaids dresses were Amsale, and were my absolute favorite bridesmaids dress I have ever worn. It was gorgeous, and so comfortable. It was really light chiffon, and not hot at all.

And last but not least here is the gorgey beyond words bridey Miss Ashley!
Simply stunning. 

Here is Miss Katalin, the MOH, and most hilarious lil sis of the bride. Love this girl. We got in some fights over a bouquet. All is well though.

When I tell you this wedding was perfection, I mean it. Absolutely beautiful, and so so SO much fun. The band was incredible, remind me to find out the name for you all.

A lovely wonderful weekend. Ashley, you were picture perfect, and I am so incredibly happy for you my sweet friend!! xoxo

    What a gorgeous wedding! That dress was so flattering on everyone!

  35. Lesley says:

    Gorgeous! That really must be the prettiest bridesmaid gown I've ever seen. 🙂 My favourite part of getting my hair and makeup done is the sitting and doing nothing while they're doing it for me. I think I enjoy the relaxing part of it because the last thing I need is to get all wound up and smear gel liner all over myself. lol

  36. Sami says:

    I am right there with you that this wedding is incredible! The weddings dress and bridesmaids were flawless! Oh and you're pre makeup shot.. you look gorg! I wish I looked like that without makeup!!
