Nice day for a white wedding

As September is coming to a close I have realized that I never posted about my recent trip to Sonoma, California. Me, my husband and in-laws were in Cali for a family wedding. Family being my husband's cousin's wedding. Brian (cousin) meet his fiance Nina due to the slip of a finger. Literally. While they had meet due to mutual friends months prior they had exchanged cell numbers, but never reached out to each other. A couple of months later Brian accidentally dialed Nina's number while he was trying to reach one of his friends. This happened numerous times. So many times that Brian figured something must want them to get together. He set a date and the rest is history.

What we all thought would be a very nontraditional wedding was in reality quite traditional with a touch of Nina and Brian. It was held a friends estate in Sonoma in their backyard. The ceremony was held outside and the ladies were giving pink parasols to get some much needed shade. Pinks, whites and burgundy's were the color theme and they fit perfectly with the setting.

The dress was a surprise for most, but word on the street was that Carrie wore it during the Vanity Fair photo shoot in the Sex and the City movie! I think we were all on pins and needles as she began her walk down the aisle. I took a quick glance at the dress to see what the big surprise was and then did my favorite thing at a wedding. Watch the groom as he watches his wife to be walk down the aisle. Nina did not disappoint. The dress was beautiful, she was beautiful and Brian was in awe.

I truly enjoyed the wedding. I wish I could plan my wedding all over again. It would totally be an outdoor wedding such as Brian and Nina's. Plus getting to wear Carolina Herrera wouldn't be too shabby.

Some pics from the wedding:

All the Ladies with their parasols!

My Father-in-law and hubby. Not afraid to wear pink.

My try at being the Satorialist. I loved her dress and she had an Audrey Hepburn vibe going on.

The funniest conversation overhead at the wedding was from some of the youngest attendees. The two ring bearers were discussing who they were going to marry. One little boy mentioned that he wanted to marry another boy. He was met with an,"Okay, but it's not good" response from the other little boy.

Ah only in California.

I just adore her dress and I love the striped ribbon! It seems to perfectly compliment the traditional/non-traditional vibe of that wedding. Gorgeous day, you're right.

I love bows so for me the striped ribbon was to die for. I think where it was placed was perfect. I love mermaid style dresses. I wish I could get married all over again!
