cause for celebration


One of my dearest friends, Olivia, got married this weekend in one of the most beautiful weddings I have ever been to. I had the honor of being one of her bridesmaids and couldn't have been more thrilled to share in such a special day with her. The weekend was by far one of the most fun I have ever had, thanks to a wonderful collection of fellow bridesmaids and friends who traveled in for the occasion. Throw in lots of Greek dancing, homemade baklava, and copious amounts of champagne and this wedding was one that will be hard to top (Olivia is Greek and, Lordy, do they know how to celebrate). I love the image above because it reflects Olivia's demeanor throughout the days leading up to the wedding. Always calm and collected, she embodied the perfect bride: gracious, patient, and happy--the anti-bridezilla. She seemed to wholly understand that weddings are beautiful things--two people pledging their hearts to each other--rather than a frenzied circus of flowers, dresses, and h'ors d'oeuvres. A great celebration for a beautiful new husband and wife! Congratulations Olivia and Bob!

Here are some photos of the gorgeous reception hall, Five Oaks Lodge, a few minutes outside of Tulsa, OK. It struck the perfect balance of rustic and elegant and was the ideal backdrop for a fantastic night. The decorations were to die for, the food was incredible and the bride looked amazing. In one word, it was PERFECTION.
