If you follow me on instagram, you probably caught a couple of pictures from the events, but if you didn’t, you are going to have to wait to see some of those another time.
I know, I’m such a tease. 🙂
I’m trying to work out a deal with the place we stayed to host a giveaway for y’all, so I want to wait and talk about the destination when that happens.
And seriously, keep your fingers crossed that it happens. The place was awesome.
Here are me and my guys getting read to head out to the ceremony!
I told them all to hop in a selfie with me, and they knew just what to do. 🙂
So if you remember, I was planning on wearing the one shoulder coral dress to this wedding.
The first one I ordered had a pull in it near the shoulder strap, so I sent it back.
I ordered the exact same dress (because I loved it!), but when it arrived (3 days before we were leaving for the wedding), it had the exact same pull in the exact same place. Dangit!
So, I ran to the mall 2 days before we left, and I found this turquoise lace number.
And I ADORED it.
And I could hardly wait to share it with all of y’all, because I knew so many of y’all would probably love it too.
A bright vibrant color, a simple silhouette, a little cap sleeve, and lace!
What’s not to love?
Well, I’ll tell you what’s not to love.
Like, I can’t find it ANYWHERE.
You can find it in white HERE, but the turquoise has just up and vanished.
And there is a similar one in a GORGEOUS pink color from the same maker HERE. It looks inappropriately short on the model, but I’m thinking it’s probably because she’s just like 6’2″. 🙂
Or click HERE for another turquoise option from a different maker.
OOHHHH WAIT! UPDATE at 1:00 p.m. on MONDAY!
A reader found my turquoise dress!!!!!
Click HERE for the dress!
I have a 4 in the dress and found it to run true to size!!!
Thank you Janda!
And if you use the code FRIENDS, it will take 25% OFF the dress, making it only $103.50! GREAT DEAL!
(The FRIENDS code ends tonight.)
Since the dress was turquoise…and lace….I decided to go minimal with the accessories.
I got a new pair of nude pumps (and I’m going to sing their praises in a minute), I made a pair of earrings in the Kendra Scott Color Bar, and I already had the fun clutch!

The little guy had to strike a pose too.
I had Chris snap another picture of me after the ceremony and before the reception.
HOW GORGEOUS IS THIS VENUE?!?!?!
I was seriously blown away by the beauty.
Again, I’ll reveal more about the site once we hopefully get the details of the giveaway
all worked out!

And you can find the earrings HERE. I couldn’t get them to show up below.
And remember, the code FRIENDS will get you 25% OFF the dress until midnight on Monday!
Me and My Guy.
I looked over at him during the reception and just felt so dang lucky.
We are about to celebrate our 14 year wedding anniversary, and since we’ve been dating since we were 16, we’ve been together 1/2 of our lives!
Love you babe!
My whole world in one little picture.
Carter looked at this picture and said “Oh my goodness, I look like a miniature Daddy!”
Yes, yes you do. 🙂
So like I said before, I kept my accessories to a minimum. I didn’t want too much going on since the dress was all lace. But even though I didn’t pile the accessories on, I loved everything I paired with the dress! When you go “less is more”, you definitely need to love what you choose!
First off, the clutch.
Pictures do not do the clutch justice. There are clear sequins sewn onto the bag that make it subtly sparkly. It really is so pretty! The accent color in the clutch is definitely coral-ish, but I still wore the pink (magenta) earrings and thought it looked great all together!

And let’s talk a second about the shoes.
They arrived the day before we left for the wedding, so I was just crossing my fingers they were going to fit and be comfortable. And YES M’AM THEY DID (fit). AND WERE (comfortable).
I danced my face off all night long.
And these babies did me right.
They aren’t the most amazing quality (BUT COME ON, they are only $59.95).
They are the perfect nude color and the perfect heel height! I was very happy with the purchase and know I will wear them for years to come.
How in the world did I not own a pair of nude heels before?
I did the Cotton Eye Joe, The Electric Slide, The Wobble, The Twist.
I could go on and on.
I also did plenty of free-styling. 🙂
And the heels handled every dance I threw at them.
They were champs.
They even survived a near death experience I had when a REALLY TALL groomsman whom I had never even talked to before this incident (and who had perhaps had a few too many cocktails) thought it would be a good idea to pick me up and throw me over one of his shoulders.
I literally saw my life flash before my eyes.
I at least saw a couple of my teeth missing and a handful of stitches in my chin.
(And I’m pretty sure several people saw my Hanky Pankys.)
Somehow, with the help of a lot of innocent bystanders, they were able to steady him before we both fell crashing to the ground.
But I’m telling you, I ALMOST DIED.
Okay, back to the clutch for a second.
You might remember the clutch from when I carried it to the Genesis Women’s Shelter luncheon.

So if you love the idea of wearing a lace dress to an upcoming event, I’ve got LOTS of options here for you since my dress is nowhere to be found.
Just click on the dresses you are interested in!
First up, some bright and vibrant color choices!
And I’ve also got some softer color choices as well.
And because I couldn’t leave you without a couple of breathtaking pictures from the weekend.
Look at the ceremony location.
(The gorgeous wedding pictures were taken by Kristi Bracewell.)
The entire weekend was MAGICAL.
And here is a picture of the happy couple!
Wasn’t Cassi the most beautiful bride?!?!
Love you Cassi and Mark!
See y’all back here on Wednesday for the Bachelorette recap!
