Whoa!  A LOT went on for the July nuptials of Portland's best hairstylist (and past DotMC model/stylist) Brianna and her wonderfully silly now-husband (!) Josh.  

First up, one of the very special projects I worked on leading up to the wedding was this heart-backed seersucker summer dress.  Brianna had been asking for a heart dress since Josh proposed months (and months) ago.  How could I say no to a fun little challenge like this?  Well, I couldn't.  Good thing too, because from what I heard, Brianna looked adorable at her rehearsal dinner.
The wedding also provided me with an opportunity to get out the May Dress and give her a spin.  You know what that means . . . time for a checklist!  Yahoo!

Now that I think about it, I didn't get any compliments.  Hmmmm. I don't expect everyone to love what I make, so I am going to blame Adorable Boyfriend for this blatant disregard of my feelings.

No one, however, gets the blame for the lack of perfect shoes.  This coral is a hard color to match and I didn't want violet.  What's a girl to do?  I did think about going for something in total contrast, but just couldn't find anything that really worked.  I am still on the hunt.

But, for the May Dress, the important items are now checked off and that's all that matters.  The dress was made, worn, and accepted into my closet.
Favorite pals, Kirsten and Cody, (who will also be tying the knot soon (Scoop!)), joined us at the Kennedy School reception to celebrate.  Brianna and Josh's big night was fun and lighthearted.  As it should be.  Think on this:  School Bus transportation between the wedding and the reception!  Thanksgiving dinner!  And . . . do I have to say it?  Photo Booth! 
Eliza Sohn, one of DotMC's favorite photographers, set up a great little booth (more like tent!), which is available for hire.  You might want to look into the aptly named Fotofort for your next event.  No really.  You want to.  It's super fun!

Congratulations to Josh and Brianna!  All the best wishes for the future!

Do my compliments not count?!?!?! You may have been upstaged by adorable boyfriend in that killer suit. I still vote aqua shoes.
