Mother Of The Groom Dress ... What I Wore

With my youngest son's wedding weekend behind us
I thought I would begin my sharing about the absolutely

Wonderful Wedding Weekend

What I Wore

as I  wait for the real wedding photos to be finished.

I looked for months for the perfect

Mother of the Groom Dress

 I was so happy how it all came together!
I wanted a dress that first of all

~ Felt like me.

~ Spoke to the event

~ Spoke to venue
(which was a gorgeous historic ranch in Carlsbad
here in Southern California)

~ Was Weather appropriate
( which was SoCal summer)

~ and of course most importantly 
made me feel confident and happy to wear!

My wonderful dress is from Beholden HERE

Besides finding the perfect outfit
I had my fillers done 
by the marvelous
 Marichelle at My Skin Services HERE
She is a true artist!
I have them done every 6 months.

I am sharing this
because I think it is important to be transparent.
I am not saying having processes done is right for everyone
but for me
I am all in for things that make aging better.
I know I have more to give others
When I feel good about me.

My ostrich feather shrug
was the perfect piece
to add in some glam and whimsy!
I ordered it from Beholden HERE
I adored wearing it!

My shoes were a jute platform.
Not as dressy as I would usually do for a wedding
but they were perfect for the venue walking surface.

I ordered them from Zara HERE

My bracelets are from my shop HERE
I will be adding them into my shop next week.

My necklace is one of my favorite shops in San Diego
Chateau Belage HERE

My sunglasses are from Free People HERE

I chose my shell bag for the evening
to continue the coastal, bohemian theme I was going for.
I don't have a source for this pieces
as I have had this beauty for ages.

I chose to wear my hair down,
which is very unusual for me for an event.

But I wanted to have a bit of SoCal easy vibe to my ensemble.
And I am very happy with the juxtaposition.

I had both my hair an makeup done for the event.

Here is a  picture of our family at the wedding.
It was a bit bittersweet without my mother
who died last month.
But I made quite a great intent to focus on all of the love of that day.
I'm sure she was watching from above.
I was ever so grateful that my dad did make the wedding
as he was in dire health himself 
just three weeks ago in ICU.

My absolute favorite part of the wedding
(besides seeing Hunter tear up as he saw Megan come down the aisle)
was the Mother Of The Groom Dance.
He chose the song 

I am so absolutely proud of my son
ever so grateful and blessed
to have Megan join our family!!
And I adore her family as well!

Thank you my friends 
for visiting here.
I will continue to share more about this
gorgeous wedding as pictures come in.

My next post about the wedding will be about the 

The Rehearsal Dinner
 we did at the lake.
It was truly another magical night!

As always my friends

I wish you love and joy
as you style your life
