My Best Friend’s Wedding

August 24, 2017



helping the bride get dressed on her wedding day

As some of you might know, my best friend Lizzie got married in July. Her wedding was pretty much the highlight of the year, and we did a lot of celebrating over the past few months from her bridal shower to her bachelotte in Palm Springs. Lizzie is one of those people that just puts a ton of thought and effort into every single thing she does, so it’s no surprise that her wedding was the most beautiful celebration, full of countless special details. I feel so lucky to have been able to stand up with her as her Maid/Matron of Honor.  Today I’m sharing photos from one of the most special days that I know we’ll remember for the rest of our lives. Whether you’re planning a wedding, or just a special party, hopefully this post from my best friend’s wedding will give you some inspiration. It’s eye candy galore!

Just looking at all these photos again makes me so happy. This was such a special day and one I know we all wish we could relive over and over again. Lizzie and I have known each other since we were 6 years old, when we met in that same church’s catechism class. We bonded over a love of musicals and American Girl dolls. While I don’t have a sister, Lizzie is mine. She’s been there for me through so much, and of course she was the maid of honor in my wedding! I love this girl and to see her start this new chapter of her life makes me so happy. I know there are only more wonderful things ahead for her and Michael!

Thinking about doing another post with all of Lizzie’s DIY tips {she did a ton!}. Let me know if any of you would be interested in that! And if you have a friend that’s getting married, send this post her way! Hopefully she’ll like it!
