I’m kind of a sucker for anything love or wedding related. I cry during mushy commercials (the Publix Thanksgiving ones KILL me) and TV weddings have me bawling before you can say “hypersensitive.” So, throw my baby brother into the mix (my first sibling to get married… and to a girl who has become one of my closest friends) and it was a very emotional weekend for me. To my surprise, I managed to hold it together during the ceremony, and the only time I cried during the night was when a metal photography beam got knocked over by the wind, and thanks to my cat-like reflexes, I dove my head underneath to keep it from smashing Liv (walking directly in front of me) to the ground. Other than the small snafu, everything went beautifully. Our families know how to throw a killer party!

Livi enjoyed the evening as long as she could, and when she was ready for bed, our babysitter met us at a nearby hotel so we could put Livi to sleep. Then, Tom and I went back to the wedding to get crunk on the dance floor and hit up the afterparty on Congress with our cousins. My absolute favorite part of the event was being able to see all of our family members in one spot — Liv especially loved getting to see all of her cousins and her great-great-grandmother. We have a lot of new pictures to add to our photo wall.

By the time I asked Meg if it was cool if I Instgrammed or posted some photos, the kids already had a hashtag going πŸ™‚ Hope you liked this little glimpse into the festivities <3 Congratulations, Meg and Kyle! We love you.

    What a gorgeous wedding! Can’t believe there was a hastag for the event – got to love modern technology!

  2. Danielle on May 13, 2013 at 11:23 am

    Gorgeous wedding! I’m going to my first peer’s wedding this June (a college friend) and I’m already stocking up on tissues πŸ™‚

  3. Maryz on May 13, 2013 at 11:26 am

    Beautiful! Meg is absolutely gorgeous!

  4. Nic on May 13, 2013 at 11:29 am

    Love the hair-do and Liv and Meg’s dresses!

  5. Irene on May 13, 2013 at 11:34 am

    I LOVE your bridesmaids dress. I’d totally wear it just as a guest. Mind if I ask where it is from? Congrats Meg and Kyle!

      it’s alfred sung and we got them at a tailor in tucson πŸ™‚

        So pretty, thanks for the info!

    My favorite part of family weddings is the whole family being together. We never get all of us in one place so it’s so special when we are all together. We are so spread out. I can’t wait for my cousins wedding this fall so we can all be together. Congratulations to both families and the happy couple!

    Congratulations to Meg and Kyle! The ceremony looks like it was absolutely gorgeous, and I love your dress… and Livi’s too! <3

    Such a beautiful bride and a gorgeous wedding! Love it all! What a fun time πŸ™‚

  11. Ali @ Peaches and Football on May 13, 2013 at 12:37 pm

    I love the side weave for Meg’s hair. It looked lovely. What a gorgeous day for a wedding too! I like how everyone of the bridesmaids looked like they had their own dress – just the same color and length. That’s such a great idea because it gives the girls freedom to find a flattering cut.

    I’m a sucker for weddings too – love looking at pictures. Now that I’m planning my own I love getting ideas from other people. πŸ™‚

    • Ali @ Peaches and Football on May 13, 2013 at 12:41 pm

      Oops – the side weave was YOUR hair. It looked beautiful. Love Liv’s dress too – but honestly we all knew whatever she wore was going to look absolutely adorable. πŸ™‚

  12. Julie on May 13, 2013 at 12:39 pm

    OMG just absolutely beautiful!! Every.single.pic! What a gorgeous venue & gorgeous bride & bridesmaids! Looks like something you’d see in a movie.

  13. Suzi @ Confessions of a Fitness Instructor on May 13, 2013 at 12:39 pm

    Can we talk about Liv’s dress for a second? SO ADORABLE!!!

    • Fitnessista on May 13, 2013 at 12:40 pm

    Absolutely beautiful! The wedding, the bride, you, everyone… I love your hair! Congratulations πŸ™‚

  27. Chelsea on May 13, 2013 at 4:33 pm

    I’m in love with that hair do! I’m seeing the grey/yellow kind of color scheme pop up more and more lately, and I’m loving it SO much, especially for spring/summer weddings πŸ™‚ Glad you were able to share these – weddings are always such a fun thing to get to see pictures of!

  28. Anna @ Your Healthy Place on May 13, 2013 at 6:09 pm

    Oh she looked so beautiful! I love weddings too, such a sap for them. So beautiful!

  29. Jenn on May 13, 2013 at 6:27 pm

    I hear you on the ‘hypersensitive’… I literally teared up half way through the photos. So beautiful. Raise a cup to true love <3

  30. Brittany on May 13, 2013 at 8:03 pm

    That was really smart to have a babysitter waiting at a hotel to watch Liv while you guys enjoy the rest of the night. I never thought of doing that! Did it work out for you guys? I’m curious

    • Fitnessista on May 13, 2013 at 8:06 pm

      it was the best idea ever. liv got to go to bed at a reasonable time (8:30, and her usual bedtime is around 7:30), and we got to stay out late without having to worry about her being miserable and overtired. win win πŸ™‚

      • Brittany on May 14, 2013 at 9:39 am

        That’s awesome! Glad you guys had fun! How was the dance floor?

  31. Brittany on May 13, 2013 at 9:40 pm

    Meg and Kyle’s wedding looks like it was beautiful. I love the colors and style of the decor. Ms. Liv is such a cutie and her outfit was adorable. Thanks for sharing the photos.

  32. Joelle (on a pink typewriter) on May 13, 2013 at 9:51 pm

    Meg looked gorgeous! I love weddings, too!

    ps. Do you have Publix in AZ? I looooove that store, but have only seen it down south, like in FL.

  33. Miranda @ Miranda Runs on May 13, 2013 at 10:21 pm

    Oh my gosh that wedding is GORGEOUS. I love the venue and the colors!

  34. Caitlin @CakesANDBeans on May 13, 2013 at 11:30 pm

    What a gorgeous venue! I love the lights in the tree! πŸ™‚ best wishes to your bro and his new wife xo

  35. Lucie on May 14, 2013 at 2:36 am

    You all look stunning! And it seemed to be the perfect party. I love Livi in that dress, so adorable and pretty!!

  36. kirsten on May 14, 2013 at 9:23 am

    I’ve been to a wedding at that venue and it was so beautiful! As soon as I started scrolling through the pictures I knew exactly where they got married, so lovely!

  37. Madison on May 14, 2013 at 11:21 am

    Meg looked absolutely perfect! I haven’t seen such a beautiful dress in a long time. Congrats to the couple!

  38. Annie on May 14, 2013 at 12:17 pm

    Where did you get those nude pumps?! They are perfect for weddings and whatnot. Beautiful!

  39. Jay on May 14, 2013 at 12:49 pm


  40. Dani on May 14, 2013 at 2:26 pm

    I feel a little dumb for asking – but I have been following your blog for over a year now and I still can’t figure out how Meg + Kyle are related to you! Is Kyle your brother? or is Meg your sister? They’re always mentioned without a sister or brother title attached so I am confused! πŸ™‚

  41. Kirsten on May 14, 2013 at 3:39 pm

    I went to the same high school as Kyle and Meg and two of my good friends went there too and are also high school sweethearts that got married on the same day and in the same town haha what a small world πŸ™‚

    • Fitnessista on May 15, 2013 at 1:49 am

      small world!
