Bridal Beauty


This past weekend, I was just ecstatic to be able to celebrate my dear friend Lindsay’s bachelorette party in Beaufort, North Carolina.  Lindsay is one of my best friends and one of the most refreshing and cheerful people I know.  If you knew her, you would love her.  I had never been to Beaufort before but was enamored upon arrival by the charming houses and beautiful scenery.  Weekend festivities included bike rides by the water and an all night dance party at a beer and BBQ festival (Lindsay even got to play tambourine with the band!)  And of course, taking as many pictures as possible.

Here are Lindsay and Julie being adorable (as usual).  Julie planned the whole weekend and even had the cutest little goody bags for all of the girls!  So thoughtful!!

Lindsay gave us little bracelets with our initials.  Such a sweet touch.  For anyone coming here from Pinterest to find out where these are form, we are sorry to say that she got them from an etsy seller that no longer sells them.   I am sure you can find something similar if you search it on etsy.

We traipsed through backyards to find Blackbeard’s house.  Somehow, it was different than how I had imagined it in my head.

We ended the weekend with a delicious brunch on Sunday morning.  Best. Coffee. Ever.

    Wow thanks so much guys! You are so sweet! Christina, I use a Canon Rebel, whichever one doesn’t have the fancy i on the end. My lense really does all the work – the Canon 50 mm f/1.8. Seriously, a miracle worker.
