#JALsquared - Jenny & Justin's Wedding Weekend

Last weekend, we celebrated our good friends, Jenny & Justin's wedding! They are a very special couple to us. Cameron and Justin have been friends since middle school, and Jenny & Justin's second date was to a boat ride Cameron and I threw for our wedding party! We were also lucky enough to celebrate their engagement with them in April of 2014.

We kicked off the wedding weekend at a Welcome Party at the rooftop of Jenny's work!

I love that you can see multiple church steeples peaking out over the city line.

Friday night was the rehearsal dinner, which was at Justin's parent's house. They live 5 minutes down the road from us, which was a nice touch. The dinner was some of the best barbecue I've had in a long while. 

I stressed so much on what I was going to wear for all of the events. Bought a new dress for the rehearsal dinner but made a last minute decision to pull an old faithful out the back of my closet instead. I didn't LOVE the dress I bought and figured I'd rather save that money. Man, Cameron has really rubbed off of me. 

So much blue!
And now, for the big event!

The whole week prior, my weather app was calling for 50/60% chance of rain both Friday and Saturday. Luckily, there was not a drop during any of the events and nothing but sunshine.

Both the ceremony and reception were held at Old Wide Awake Plantation, the ceremony down by the river under a big, beautiful oak tree, and the reception next to the plantation house. This place is such a hidden gem! The ceremony was a warm one (hello, 90*!) but the sweetness of Jenny and Justin reciting their own vows did not leave many dry eyes. The reception was beautiful! Amazing details throughout, coupled with a super fun band that had me on the dancefloor all night long! (Alcohol and dim lights helped with that, too.)

She did a great job - especially for being a very timid pup.

Could they be any cuter?!?

Me with the most handsome groomsman in the wedding - lucky girl!
I promise we are not matching on purpose, just happened that way!

Cameron's adorable parents. How smokin' is his mom?!?

So in love with the Hunter Bell dress I wore from Rent the Runway! Got so many compliments, which made a girl feel good. 

Sunday we contemplated laying out by the pool, but we were even too exhausted for that. Jenny and Justin are currently honeymooning in Antiqua and I can't wait for them to get back to hear all about it!
