Last weekend it was my friend Julia's wedding, so today I have some lovely wedding pics for you.
I didn't take photos at church because there were already so many people with cameras, but afterwards at the reception I tried to catch up.
I have decided not to post photos of the different people because I would have to ask them for their permission to do so and we all know that mankind is vain, so probably most persons wouldn't want their picture to appear on my blog anyway. But I asked the bride and she allowed me to use the photo I took with her - thanks a lot Julia, kisses to you!
Here we go with some wedding goodness.
Julia looked so pretty! Her dress was the perfect fairylike girly dress, a vision of simple elegance and her hair was pinned up and looked effortlessly cute. Furthermore as "something borrowed" she wore a 250 year old necklace, a friend's heirloom - so perfect! But the best accessory she wore all day was her radiant dentist smile! :)
My outfit was rather "seasonal sale themed" - the dress and jacket are both sale bargains. However I was glad that I found a simple chic dress in such a great shade of blue and the matching nude jacket and shoes to go with it. The shoes were regular price but still not expensive and now I have a versatile pair of high heels for all upcoming events that require chic shoes.
Above: The location for the reception was a lovely place with archways that looked like they were taken from a mediteranean church.
Below: Instead of writing into a classic guest book the guests could write their congratulations on a vase and/or leave their fingerprints with their names on a canvas with a tree painted on it. Such cute ideas!
Below: the wedding cake and the present that my girls and I gave to the newlyweds - a Chinese take-away box filled with fortune cookies made of felt, which again were filled with money and quotations about love.
It was a lovely wedding and a great day with all of my favourite girls (love ya guys!), so glad they were all there - apart from Jasmin who couldn't join us because she lives in Beijing (so at this point I'm also sending kisses to Beijing - or rather to Cambodia because she is on vacation there)! Mwah mwah!
