    We’re back from a visit to Kentucky! Our first order of business was to get my best friend, Jenny, married to her knight in shining armor, Brett. I don’t have a photo of her as bride (since I was a bridesmaid and was carrying a bouquet of flowers in lieu of my camera or iPhone). But here she is a couple of years ago posing with another knight in shining armor.

    And here I am with my dear friends Amelia and Glenda at the wedding reception. This black and white comes to you courtesy of Glenda and her husband, David.

    This morning at 3:30 am California time, I snuck downstairs to watch the Royal Wedding on live TV. And just as the princess-to-be arrived at Westminster Abbey, another princess awoke in her crib. That princess’s mother (you know, the QUEEN – har har) decided to get her up, and together Eleanora and I watched the wedding of Prince William and Princess Catherine.

    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.

    Bollywood-style dancers!

    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 :)

    The groom watches the bride coming down the aisle…

    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.

    CAKE!

    All gone :(

    And a sparkler send-off.

    Congratulations and best wishes to Mr. & Mrs. Lyons, Mr. & Mrs. Marinaccio, and Mr. & Mrs. Richard!!!

    Love,

    Hannah
