Wedded Bliss: Poolside Party

As you probably recall,
I just returned from my sister's wedding
over Memorial Day in Dallas.

It was an amazing week
full of fun & seeing good friends...
but I have to say,
the actual wedding festivities took the cake.

They were gorgeous,
and to the credit of my family alone-
no planners enlisted!

Just my mom working her face off on this fabulous fete.

While the professional pictures are yet to arrive,
I thought I would start by sharing some of the pre-wedding fun...

{thanks for the nudge, Helena!}

First up,
the bridal luncheon.

Held at my parents home,

hosted by my lovely aunts,

and reveled in by ME...
I was loving all the fanciness.

Poolside pedicures,

dainty drinks,

and low 80's temperature.


One of my aunts who threw the gorgeous party
also owns a wedding chapel in Oklahoma City, Rose Briar Place.

While I have yet to attend any of her weddings,
I'm now assured that they would be quite the good time.

Especially after dessert was over-

it was her own lemon sorbet... mmm.
