On Saturday June 24, Jeremy and I celebrated my dear friend Melissa’s wedding in Virginia (see recap of Melissa’s bachelorette party). Melissa is such a beautiful person inside and out. We’ve been friends for over 10 years. I’m really thankful for Melissa’s friendship after all this time. So, Jeremy and I were pleased we could celebrate with Melissa and her (now) husband Brennan, on their wedding day.
The wedding ceremony was held at Saint John the Apostle Catholic Church in downtown Leesburg, Virginia. Melissa’s uncle is a Catholic priest and, so was the officiant for their wedding. Her uncle led a beautiful Catholic wedding ceremony. Afterwards, the wedding reception was at Stone Tower Winery, a premium vineyard and winery in Leesburg, Virginia. I had never been to Stone Tower Winery before. The winery and views were absolutely breathtaking. It was a perfect day. Melissa looked stunning (as expected), the weather was lovely, and it was great catching up with all my old friends. All in all, Melissa and Brennan deserved nothing less than the most perfect wedding day and they achieved it. 🙂
I wore my blush Nicholas ‘Basque Lace Off The Shoulder Dress’ I bought at Intermix this past Fall. I bought the dress on sale and hadn’t had a great opportunity to wear it. So, I saved it for Melissa’s wedding. My blush Nicholas dress is sold out, but I’ve added links to similar dresses above. This one and this one are both pretty blush dresses designed by Nicholas. I wore my Admiral Row Gold Pave Curved Bar Necklace. Get 20% off with code ‘Lauren20,’ and my Tory Burch bag. For many weddings I’ve attended, I’ve use Rent the Runway, and have had great success.
