Sunday Wedding

Our friends got married this past Sunday.


I love weddings. Brian and I always find ourselves extra sentimental at weddings - I cry and he gets super affectionate. Not that he isn't an affectionate person, it's just he's extra lovey-dovey at weddings. I think it reminds him of when we got married.


I was the Maid of Honor (I know technically, I'm a "Matron" of Honor, since I am married - but I don't like the word - it makes it seem like an elderly war nurse should be walking down the aisle), and Brian was a groomsmen - so it was fun for us both to be in the wedding party. It's the first wedding other than ours that we've both been in the wedding party.

How are you at weddings? Do you cry? Do you fall asleep (yes, believe it or not, I know people who've FALLEN ASLEEP at weddings!)? What was your favorite wedding that you've been to?

(the photo on the bottom right of me and Brian was taken by our friend Prashant at MFL Photography).

I love going to weddings and I LOVE it when my hub and I are both in the wedding party. It's the best when you walk back down the aisle after the wedding arm in arm with you hub. I don't get teary eyed, but I get super exited.

BTW I'm doing a guest post at The Short and the Sweet of It this morning on fashion. You should stop by if you have a sec =)

It looks like your friend had such a lovely wedding! I love the autumn colors found in the chairs and decorations in the "tulip love" photo. She has good taste ;)

I've never been to a good wedding, and those I've attended ended in divorce. To make up for this, I happily compliment and "support" the brides in the TLC shows (SYTTD, 4 Weddings). When my friends marry, I am ready bake, decorate, and support all the way.

Such a gorgeous wedding! I've only been to two weddings outside of my own. I would love to be a regular wedding attendee, and maybe a bridesmaid one day.

I have never cried at a wedding. But, I haven't been to a lot of them. Which is sad because I love weddings!

Sey said...

You look dashing on your dress as well as your husband. The color looks royal and elegant.

I think my favorite wedding, outside of my own, was my friend Jennifer's as she got married the same place we did. It was like a return to the magic a few years later.

You two look amazing!

I was in my boyfriend's sister's wedding at the beginning of September and that was the first wedding where I had a hard time not bawling my eyes out!

I haven't been to that many weddings, but I loved my best friend's wedding. I was the maid of honor, and I did cry during my speech. Fortunately, she did too!

Yana said...

I always get a bit emotional during the ceremony. Marriage is such a beautiful & quite miraculous happening. My favorite wedding was when my beat friend married my brother a few months ago.:)

How cute are you guys?

I agree, I'm maid of honour (technically matron) for 2 weddings next year & refuse to say matron - eek! How horrid!

My hubby & I will both be in the wedding party for one as well! Yay!

great to visit your blog again after my long blogging break.
i've never ever been to a wedding!i would just love to be invited to one, but it just seems like nobody is going to have a weeding.geez.

Silver Strands said...

I love weddings too and I LOVE your blog. It's just so pleasant to look at Dionne!

i love the photo of the two of you! (you also wearing really nice shoes)

I am not particularly a wedding person- well it depends on who's wedding it is, actually. if they are close friends i always love them-- but the last 1 1/2years we had to attend over 15 weddings... of close friends and aquaintances- which sort of put me off weddings a little. thinking back though i got to say i did really enjoy most of them
and yeah the word matron is horrid!

Barbara said...

Sweet photos, Dionne! And I love those wreaths!
Yes, we all love weddings...but I don't cry or get mushy. I'm too busy looking at the flowers and the food!! :)

Meghan said...

Aww! You and Brian look amazing! I love weddings.


You and Brian are so beyond adorable. Loved seeing this pictures.

Maybe you should take Brian to a wedding every weekend. :-)

Love the picture of you and Brian! Stunning. And it looks like the wedding was beautiful as well. I love weddings. I think my favorite wedding so far (besides my own!) was my sister's from this summer. The theme was old country fair and it was just plain fun! Loved every part of it. :) Here's a link to it: http://pamelasusan.typepad.com/pamela_susanup_close_pers/2011/08/tying-the-knot-old-country-fair-style-part-i.html

Hope all is well with you!

Melissa Blake said...

i love weddings, but they do get me all choked up!

Teresa said...

I Looooove Weddings. Geez, I love it so much just that just by looking to your pics I'm already Ahhhhing and Ohhhhhh ;).

You and Brian look... Happy. And when a couple reacts the way you both do it means the path that follows is even better than the ceremony itself, and it touches you to witness family and friends heading that way.

Thank you for the pics Sweet Girl :)
