My Best Friend's Wedding

We've just returned from my best friend's magical wedding weekend in Napa. I keep referring to the weekend with the movie "My Best Friend's Wedding" with Julia Roberts in mind, really for no particular reason, other than the fact that she is literally my best friend and the phrase seems to fly off my tongue. There is also a bit of pride in that phrase as Lauren is one of my dearest friends. Witnessing Lauren's marriage was so incredibly special and I am most certainly still on a high of joyful emotion. Not only is Lauren one of the most loyal, witty, and elegant people I know and cherish, she has impeccable taste. From the provencal garden landscape to New Orleans band and chic tablescapes, it was an evening to remember...I just had to share a few captures!

 The most elegant bride! Her "something borrowed" were a pair of diamond pearl-drop earrings my friend Betsy wore at her wedding, and Betsy's Mother wore at her own!
