Lulu's wedding was AMAZING. It was a great ceremony - in a beautiful church - and had the perfect mix of solemn and light-hearted. We then headed to the historic Arizona Biltmore Resort for the outdoor garden reception. Hubs described it as "Nantucket chic" (Surprisingly the perfect way to describe it). Everyone wore bright, spring-colored dresses to complement the yellows of the bridal party. Mama Martini even wore an a-mazing hat to match her teal dress. Old college friends were in town to help celebrate the big event. But most of all, Lulu was radiant. She looked beautiful and her happiness was infectious. While dancing* in a big circle she mouthed to us "This is the best day of my life." I was so proud to be able to share it with her in all her happiness.
*the girl boogey-ed in her dress!
And in true Arizona spring/wedding fashion, Hubs and I will be heading to another wedding this weekend. This time, one of our best friends (and the Best Man from our wedding) will tie the knot. I can't wait!
Funny how I was such the anti-bride, but I have so enjoyed my friends' weddings. In fairness, mine was the first wedding of most all of my friends and I was overwhelmed with being the center of attention. And the decisions - oh the decisions to be made. Overwhelmed was the perfect way to describe it. I wish I had known about all of the wedding blogs 5 years ago...so much inspiration, advice, tips. Luckily, my wonderful and ever-talented mom was able to translate "Miss E language" into "wedding language" and that day turned out perfectly. Exactly what I wanted.
Well I'm off, lovelies. Please stop by Wearing Mascara's new site. She recently made the switch to Wordpress and is hosting a fabulous giveaway! You should read her if you don't already...she is such a kind, funny, smart chica and I always look forward to her posts.
