Over the past several weeks, The Hubs and I have been to THREE fabulous weddings celebrating the unions of some of our closest friends. Here are some highlights from the joyful occasions.
JENNY & ART IN MALIBU
Jenny & Art were married at the Adamson House, a gorgeous estate nestled by the Pacific Ocean.
Lots of colors everywhere…
And there was dining al fresco, by the ocean, with beautifully decorated tables. Each table was a little bit different. I totally stole a peony off of one at the end of the night.
The crowd was SO. INTO. IT.
But Art & Jenny weren’t so sure about THIS part:
Dinner was a better moment.
MELISSA & MARK IN SANTA BARBARA
Melissa & Mark said their I do’s at Trinity Episcopal Church and celebrated afterwards at the Four Seasons Biltmore. This is the same hotel where The Hubs and I got engaged, and it’s pretty amazing.
I love a church wedding. This was the first one we’d been to since our own

Mark & Melissa were shuttled around in style.
The bride loved her Louboutins. Can you blame her??
They had hilarious life-size cut-outs made of themselves, which, fortunately, made their way to the dance floor.
MARY BETH & MARTY IN CHARLESTON
Does it get any better than historic Charleston? More on that later. Mary Beth & Marty made it official at the Palmer Home, a stunning bed & breakfast perched right on the Battery.
Hot pink accents everywhere…
The Palmer Home’s Battery view offered the perfect backdrop. During the reception, a light rain began to fall while the sun was still shining, and a gorgeous rainbow stretched itself across the sky over the Cooper River. It was like their wedding day winked at them. Of course I didn’t have my camera on hand at that moment, so you’ll have to take my word for it.
Below, the bride and groom are sitting on a joggling board — a super fun seat you see on porches all over Charleston. This was Marty’s wedding gift to Mary Beth. He even put hot pink bows on it. Good boy.
And a sparkler send-off.
Congratulations and best wishes to Mr. & Mrs. Lyons, Mr. & Mrs. Marinaccio, and Mr. & Mrs. Richard!!!
