My Best Friend's Wedding


Happy Monday!

Prepare for picture OVERLOAD! After the best few weeks EVER celebrating some very special people, i'm finally back to recap our amazing time back home in San Diego and share some breath taking pictures from my Best friend's wedding. I was a bad girl and brought my DSLR all the way from Arkansas and didn't take it out of the bag a single time. There is someting to be said about just living in the moment rather than photographing every last minute. So i've got ton of iPhone photos to share, and if you're just here for some wedding eye-candy, scroll down to the bottom to get your fix :)

We landed late Friday night, and didn't waste any time because starting Saturday morning the festivities began! The bridesmaids got to throw Bree the sweetest little shower and it was the best way to kick off an awesome week and get that wedding excitement flowing.


Then the fun really began as the gals were off to Palm Springs for a ladies weekend in the Sun. I'll let the pictures speak for themselves, but seriously...get 8 ladies together, add sun, booze and bikinis and it's a recipe for the most fun bachelorette weekend ever!








One of the best things about being a bridesmaid is gaining some automatic besties from the bridal party. Bree had the best group of girls in her wedding, and we bonded so much over the week!





Leaving Palm Springs was bittersweet. We had so much fun but it meant W-Day was only a few short days away :)

The week came and went and before we knew it, rehearsal day was here. Can we take a minute to discuss how perfectly our rehearsal dinner dresses coordinated?! We didn't even talk to each other beforehand!




We stayed in the MOST breath taking house in wine country the night before the big day. This was the rehearsal dinner table. Can you say, DROOL!? This is what entertainer dreams are made of. It was a perfectly romantic night filled with so many anxious butterflies. 



Alright, ya'll. Sh*ts about to get real. Things are gonna get mushy real fast and you can just deal with it. Friendship is a real precious thing. Bree and Tyler have truly been family to Jake and I, and seeing them finally tie the knot was like watching your heart burst right in front of your eyes! These two have been together nine years and Bree has been saying that she would Marry Tyler since they were 15 year old Sophomores in highschool. The love the two of them share is out of control, and it truly inspires me to love Jake in a way that is bigger than anything I could ever imagine.  

Throughout the years, we've developed a "signature pose." We make sure to take one picture like this on all of our adventures and it was so cool to gather some of my favorites ending with the 2 biggest days of our lives. We have so many more but i'll spare you and just share some of the best...

B + T's wedding day 

I think you can tell by the way the boys hug in all the pictures how much we all mean to each other ;) It was the most incredible week. I sat in the airport crying before we flew home wishing we could press rewind and do it all over again. If your BFF hasn't gotten married yet, prepare for the best week of your life when she does.

Now for the good stuff...B + T had the sweetest photographers, Hanna and Alexander from First and Orange, who shared some previews of the breathtaking shots they took. Grab a tissue cause #whitegirlcanteven when I look at these photos!
















Do you see how Tyler looks at his Bride?! Melt me. And look at those gorgeous rings. drool.drool.drool. And i've never seen a more beautiful Bride in my life. Bree is so elegant and was radiating so much love and happiness on her big day.

As much fun as we had celebrating those two, all good things come to an end, and we're back to regularly scheduled programmin' here at Absolutely Arkansas. I've got weeks and weeks of projects to share with you, and a full week full of updates comin' at ya quick!

Here is to getting through Monday with some gorgeous eye candy. :)

Until Next Time,
xo Kylie
