Here Comes the Bride...

We had a wedding photographer for the big day, but we managed to squeeze in a few shots of my sister on her day after getting everyone ready>>

Our mom made the bouquets and boutonnieres for the wedding party, she did a great job! Maddie used a vintage glass box filled with moss as her ring box {see above} for our brother Alex to walk down the aisle with as her ring bearer.


Bridal Shower

My little sister was blessed with some wonderful in-laws! They hosted a bridal shower for her with the help, and in the company of, members of their church.

Maddie loves anything Fall, so her mother-in-law made sure to include festive elements into the decor. The pumpkin bride and groom were my favorite!

She has also been on a canoli kick lately... so we had to have those!

A sweet church member had been a baker in her previous life and generously made the couple a cake. Several guests at the shower were unable to attend the ceremony so we made them cut the cake together.

We played a handful of fun games, took a ton of pictures, and gave gits to the soon-to-be couple.

They were so happy to be one step closer to getting married!


Patterned Pants and Peplum

Here's another peek into what I wore on vacation in AZ. Can you tell I'm loving this maroon/oxblood/wine color? It's perfect for Fall and Winter!

Top: Forever21 {similar here} // Pants: H&M {similar here} // Shoes: Tory Burch {thrifted} // Purse: Phillip Lim for Target // Necklace: ILY Couture //

When I was packing I tried to keep my carry-on as light as possible, that meant some items needed to do double duty. This necklace was worn on repeat! It goes with everything!
