Friday Favorites #107 – Wedding Edition

Hello and happy Friday!!!! Wow, it feels like forever since I’ve done a FF post. Technically I only missed one, but it sure seems like it’s been longer than 2 weeks. I thought it was only appropriate to share A BUNCH of pictures with y’all from the wedding. I mean after all, y’all have listened to me yammer on and on about it for so long, why not make let you look at all the fun pictures.?So this weeks Friday Favorites is the official Wedding Edition. 

The entire weekend was absolutely perfect and not even a little rain could dampen our spirits.

These cute girls!

I absolutely adore the fun these two have together and that they will include me {most of the time}.?

The weekend kicked off with the most wonderful Bride’s Maid Brunch hosted by one of Debora’s friends.


The food was to-die-for and I’m going to try to get my hands on that quiche recipe. Katie said, “It was the best quiche I ever had, no offense, Mom”. None taken, I totally agree!

Two very proud mamas.

I was completely shocked when Katie asked to wear my dress from the bridal shower. I told her I was wearing gingham too and she didn’t even care. Takes me back to when she was little and we’d do the mother-daughter dress alike thing. Oh, and in case you’re curious, I left that dress with her.

The beautiful bridesmaid brigade.

Wedding rehearsal.

Rehearsal dinner

The Rehearsal dinner was at Maggiano’s and was fantastic. The food was delicious and the company was phenomenal. Having all the people you love the most in one room is the perfect way to kick off a wedding weekend. I was so busy enjoying myself I forgot to take hardly any pictures.

I did grab one of the four of us when it was over and of course you know how I love my sweets, so I took a picture of my overindulgent dessert plate.


                        We had one of these “sweet” little gold boxes as a favor at each seat for the dinner.                           (I saved mine and enjoyed it while sitting in the airport waiting to head home.)

My friend, Elizabeth came over Saturday morning for a few minutes and brought her dog. All the girls immediately ran outside to great him.  Murphy was super popular with the girls.

The girls looked darling in their little robes. You might remember I bought pink ones for myself and Debora. We were each waiting on the other to put hers on and never wore them…LOL

Erin was such a beautiful bride

Love her mom!

This is one of my favorite pictures of me and Katie!?

I love this picture of Erin and her mom

The venue was Marathon Motorworks. A really cool old building that used to be a car factory. There was so much natural light in the room that it made it really hard to get good pictures with a phone. I know the photographers shots will be much better. Oh, and on a side note, her sister was the lead photographer and hired an assistant to help. They took 4,000 pictures. ?I can’t wait to see them.

Mr. & Mrs. Benny Richardson

My “baby” brother, we’re 13 1/2 months apart.

We had so much fun seeing all of our best friends.

My college girls

And because I know y’all will be curious. Kent is 6’2″ tall and Luke makes him feel short. Luke is 6’6″ tall.

Mr. & Mrs. Richardson, squared?❤️

It’s so hard to believe all this was taking place this time last week. The weekend was so busy and flew by. We couldn’t have been any happier with how it all turned out. The kids have been in Miami all week on their honeymoon and we are anxiously awaiting their return home Sunday, and hopefully getting to hear all about it.

Thank you all for being so sweet and supportive during this special time and allowing me to share our celebration with you. Those of you who have already been through kids getting married know how wonderful it is and those who haven’t, well y’all have a lot to look forward to. I know this experience is totally different than it will be when Katie ties the knot (many years from now?).

Happy weekend friends!!!!

    Oh my goodness, I am speechless (of course that won’t stop me from writing an essay, lol). Everything was so beautiful! I loved the wedding venue and all the pictures. You and KT look like sisters (I say that all the time because it’s true). That gingham maxi is perfection on you!
    The rehearsal dinner looked huge, what a fun night! I have never been to Maggiano’s but want to go. The one here is in the middle of tourist central and I hate that part of town but want to eat there. The bridesmaid’s luncheon was picture perfect and the food to die for! Y’all did it right! I am so happy it all went so well!

    • June 1, 2018 / 8:01 am

      Yep, if I could only use one word to describe the weekend it would be PERFECT!!! Thanks for all your sweet words, support, letting me bounce things off of you and general friendship! XOXO Now I can advise you when your time rolls around!?

      Thanks Shelly!! Loving Erin the way we do just made it that much sweeter. I can’t imagine how it would have been if we’d felt differently about her. I hope you’ll be as lucky as we are!! XO

    I haven’t been to Maggiano’s in forever, now I am craving it. I hope Autumn will want to match me someday, the two of you are so cute in those gingham dresses. I really love the dress you selected, it just looks like it was made for you. And, what a beautiful bride and groom! Erin seems like such a sweetheart! I only hope that my kids marry someone that we are all close to someday, too.


    • June 4, 2018 / 10:07 am

      So good! You need to go soon. I’m sure she will! (and she’ll probably trying to raid your closet) Loving Erin the way we do made the entire thing just that much sweeter!!! Happy week friend!!! XOXO

      How exciting!!! You’ve got a big week coming up. I hope you’ll enjoy every single minute and make beautiful memories. XOXO

    Thank you for sharing your search! I do love your first choice- it’s perfect! My son is getting married in 5 weeks and I’ve been on a similar search. I have an amazing purple dress I have never been photographed in that I sent to my DIL for approval. She said yes but it was the same color the bridesmaids were wearing. Then I decided I’d go traditional & choose a blue dress. You guessed it…the MOB chose a blue dress so that idea failed. I did the Nordstrom visit & have one in my closet as a contender. And I’m still looking….the dress in my closet is looking better every day but I’ll probably shop until the wedding day.
