Ashley’s wedding reception was being held at the Wychmere Beach Club, probably one of the most beautiful, upscale places that I have ever been to. We were all pretty certain that at some point, someone from management was going to drag us all off the premises, declaring that we weren’t classy enough to be there. Instead, everyone who worked there was exceptionally nice, courteous, and more than willing to help out with anything we needed. Which then led us to the belief that we were probably all dreaming.
But when you’re dreaming about being at a place like that, you don’t ask anyone to pinch you and wake you up. You just go with the flow and enjoy every moment. 😉
Ashley had stayed on site the night before in an absolutely beautiful room that looked as though it had come straight out of a magazine. This was where the bridesmaids met to get our hair done and also to do our makeup. When I wasn’t snapping photo’s nonstop, I was gawking out the window at the ocean spread out before us. (Classy, I know).
The hairdresser decided to do all of our hairstyles differently, which was very creative and fun. For my hair, she did a side braid, which she then spun into a bun. I absolutely loved it!
Here are a few more hairstyles that were done…
Oh, and I sort of- kind of loved the dresses Ashley had picked out. The picture below doesn’t need any explanation for those of you who have been reading my blog for a few days or more. 😉 For those of you who are new, let me explain that I have a stripe addiction. And take a look at the skirts we were wearing!
Yes, I know, be still my heart! 🙂
Ashley looked absolutely gorgeous in her wedding gown too!
The limo picked us up around 1:30pm to whisk us away for the photo-shoot. (Ashley and her fiancé wanted to do photo’s before the wedding, allowing all of us the opportunity to enjoy the cocktail hour).
I don’t have any pics of the actual wedding, since I was standing up front with the other bridesmaids. 🙂 But here are some pics from the fun, beautiful, and delicious wedding reception (which was also held right on the water).
(BEST wedding food I have EVER eaten, by the way). 🙂 Sooo delicious!!!
Yes, it was breathtaking. 🙂 AND even more importantly, my best friend Ashley had the beautiful, romantic wedding that she deserved.
