My Best Friend’s Wedding

I have been wanting to work on this post since I hopped off the plane looking all tan from a week in Florida. I keep starting to write it, then hit delete delete delete, because everything I start writing sounds super lame. I even googled friendship quotes…but they proved to be MEGA lame, so I decided those were out too.

So, what do I want to say? I guess I already said it all in my brilliant maid of honor speech {shudders and sighs relief it was not filmed}…HA. But really, all I want to say, is Chrissy…you were perfect. I am so incredibly happy for you, and happy that you found Brian. Thanks for being my best friend…you made a solid choice. I am a pretty legit resource to have in your back pocket during wedding planning time 😉 hehe

No but seriously, how beautiful is little bridey? Striking. Jaw dropping. Thank you Claire for capturing these sweet moments between me and my best friend, and for sending them to me before anyone else, before you really even had a second to start working on her wedding! (man I can be so demanding! haha)

 Definitely a framer…

I love these pictures more than anything! So special.

The wedding was on Friday, so on Saturday everyone got to play on the beach all day (It was genius-I am so doing that when I get married). After the newlyweds left for paradise on Sunday, a few of us extended the trip and hopped over to Longboat Key.  You may remember that my friend Ashley has a house there (it was the perfect location for her bachelorette party a few years ago!) We had so much fun-I was seriously depressed to leave my friends and come home.

Chrissy I love you so, and thanks for getting married in Florida-it was so amazing!

Cheers to you Mr. and Mrs. Donnellan!

    Thank you so much for sharing! I'm a newly engaged bride in Naples, so this just made me that much more excited for my wedding in this area! It looked like such a gorgeous wedding! xoxo

  2. P!nky says:

    Awwwwwwwwwwwwww that's so sweet! She is so stunning and you looked fabulous too!


  3. Fabulous job PinkLOULOU. Question, what is your tip for holding curls all day? Did you curl the bride's hair with a curling iron or curlers?


  4. I have been DYING over anticipation of this post! So beautiful! The bride was perfect and what a stunning group of friends! I was so excited to see the blue koozies everyone was carrying around – totally something I want at my wedding!

  5. Brooke says:

    I'll be honest – I waited for every pic that Claire posted because I knew sweet Chrissy was going to be GORGEOUS. But I was not prepared for this. She was a show stopper. Not to mention the tiniest thing I have ever seen. She's gorgeous, and that video is amazing – but the best of all is your sweet friendship. xoxo

    I always love your video recaps. The song is absolutely perfect. It looks like the wedding was picture perfect!

  9. Jaclyn Kaye says:

  10. Lauren says:

    PLL! This video is WONDERFUL! You look mighty pretty yourself! Love when friends get married!

  11. Kelly B. says:

    I can't get over how pretty Chrissy is- ack- all the weddings you go to/post about are just so beautiful!

    BUT I have a question: HOW did you make this video!? I have some video/photos from my own wedding I'd love to put to music like this but am so clueless. HELP!?

  12. What a beautiful song and wedding! So neat you were on FMB-I'm only 25 minutes away from there! I've been to Longboat Key too-so nice & relaxing! 🙂
