Wedding Season

We sure did bring down the HAUS!
Friday morning my family and I drove to Morristown, New Jersey for my first cousin Mark's wedding!
He married my beautiful new cousin Jessica at 6 pm at the Madison Hotel in the Conservatory.
The Conservatory is the beautiful room that my mom and I snuck into before the ceremony to take pictures...

It was a beautiful ceremony, I cried, as per usual.
I shed a good amount of tears, so I ran back to my room after the ceremony to make sure I didn't mess up my makeup!
How could I not cry??
Weddings are such beautiful events!!
My cousin had been dating his new wife for about 7 or 8 years, and I was so happy to see them finally tie the knot.
They are perfect for each other; both so loving, caring and sweet, and I was just so happy, that I couldn't not cry!!

Don't worry there were no tears from me at reception though!
My brother and I sat at a table with my other first cousins and we really got to catch up and hang out.
We wined and dined and then danced the rest of the night.
My 82 year old grandpa busted a move, as did my dad and grandmother.
Alcohol really does wonders to people....

The bride looked gorgeous in a long sleeve lace dress with an open back.
The bridesmaids were all in long blush Lulu's gowns and the groomsmen were in dark gray suits.
Everyone looked stunning!

My mom stunned a similar dress to the bridesmaids, but it was more pink than blush, and had a gray floral pattern on it.
When we went dress hunting for her, we found this beautiful gown, but we were concerned it would be too similar to the bridesmaids and/or be too dressy because it was long.
But it was perfect!
My mom didn't look like a bridesmaid and she looked so elegant in a long dress!!
(And not for nothing, but long dresses are way more flattering than short dresses, on any woman.)

I wore a lavender/periwinkle off the shoulder ASOS lace dress.
It was a bit snug, but I loved wearing it!
It came past my knee and it was off the shoulder.
The off the shoulder part was elasticated, so it didn't interfere with my dancing!
And just so you know, I am a wonderful dancer!
I rocked my super high strappy heels, with my brand new Kate Spade earrings all night!

I never really talk about my makeup or haircare, but in this post, I am going to!
Michelle has always said I should add a section to T&P all about beauty, but I just don't have an interest in beauty like I do in fashion.
So if you do need good recommendations/reviews on makeup and haircare products be sure to go to!
I read some great reviews on some mascara's that I've tried, even though my all time favorite Maybelline the Rocket is not listed on the website, there are some other great products.
I wore my favorite mascara from Maybelline for the wedding, as always, and straightened my hair with my Revlon flat iron. You can read more reviews of great flat irons here!
Let's leave the beauty reviews to the professionals at right now, and I will stick to what  I know a bit more about...

I love weddings and I get to go to my other cousin's wedding in September!!
Get ready for more wedding photos really soon!
