wedding weekend

calivintage: wedding weekend

aaaand i’m back from a long weekend spent with my family in southern california for my sister’s wedding! i have to admit, i was a bad blogger because i hardly took any photos while i was away, but i was just too busy running around with last minute wedding preparations, and just spending time with my family. but i did snap a few shots on the wedding day, and thought i might share my little photo diary with you!

above, i’m doing my signature jump shot in front of my grandparents house with my incredibly fashionable little brother. i’m wearing a boutique by jaeger dress and he’s wearing a j.crew shirt, levi’s 1947 jeans, and alden boots.

on the day of the wedding, i went to the nail salon with my sister (the bride), my mom, and my aunt julie. i picked out a bright orange to match my lipstick, and the lady doing my nails convinced me to do the tips. i thought it was weird at first, but i actually like it  a lot!

i was too impatient to wait to wear this dress, so you’ve already seen it! but here’s a quick outfit shot!

i decorated the wedding cakes complete with little orange blossoms and kumquats!

my brother decided to interfere with my outfit shot. his vintage reissue levi’s and alden boots are stealing the show!


  1. your little brother totally is super fashionable, guess it must run in the family <3

    and im kind of in love with this nail colored tips idea! i must try this asap!

  2. Too many gorgeous things to comment on all of them- especially those cakes! You don’t look like you are jumping, you look a bit angelic. Why do I always look like I am falling?
    Your hair is perfect to- must stop gushing now. What a lovely wedding.

    your sister looks beautiful in that layered dress and so happy.

    talk soon wild child

  7. What a beautiful and fashionable family! You and your brother always look chic and amazing, but I have to say that the bride’s gown is so great–just flawless–I love the tiered ruffles. Everyone looks so lovely and so happy.

  11. Love your dress and I think this is the first time I’ve seen you smiling in pictures! Funny that you mentioned it about your grandparents! I tend to dork out with my brother too- the jump shots and just plain silliness! The cake is FANTASTIC- I love the simplicity yet delicacy of it! Looks like a wonderful time! :D
