A Family Wedding

After going several years (10, and it was mine) without a wedding in the family, we have had 3 in 18 months with two more coming up in October and November. It’s nice to be with family and I have a large extended family. Turns out my immediate family is pretty big now too. We filled the entire church pew Saturday.

We all get dressed up, laugh, eat, drink, dance, gossip (I know, that’s bad.), take pictures and enjoy the entire event. It’s so much fun. Here are just a few pictures, including what I wore.

Dress: Diane von Furstenberg
Belt: J Crew Flowerette Sash
Shoes: Christian Louboutin
Pearls: Gift 
The Boy
Shirt: J Crew (yep, training The Boy early)
Tie: J Crew
Pants: GAP
Belt: Mossimo Target
Shoes: Stacy Adams (JC Penny’s)

    You both look so nice! Your son looks so much like you, except you are beautiful and he is so handsome! The wedding looked like loads of fun! We have polka bands at our family weddings (in the past) and it is was much fun. Nowadays, there is usually just a DJ.

    We haven't had a wedding in the family in such a long time! I guess we need to wait for the younger generation now.

    Thanks for sharing your lovely pictures of your family with us. Yes, the boy is very handsome and he should be proud to have such a gorgeous mom. I love your haircut!

    It looks like you all had such a good time! I agree that you look very beautiful and the boy is indeed handsome…love that you're training him early, too. 🙂 Have a wonderful rest of your day!

    Thank you ladies!

    Kathy – I love polka bands. We enjoy them during Oktoberfest around here.

    Patina – I'm actually due for a cut but I love the style so much. I've had a variation of this for 7 years.

    FFM – I've been trying to convince him to shop on his own and get his own style going but he'd still rather have mom pick out and buy his clothes. And I don't mind. ;o)

    What lovely pictures. I love your outfit and the boy is too cute in his j.crew!

    I love the mariachi band! How fun! Looks like a great time was had by all! I feel like I haven't been to a wedding in forever too! It's strange that once you get to a certain age-everyone you know is married!!! 🙂

    What I would give for your colouring.
    I just wore a DVF dress to a wedding this weekend too, it's a trend!
