Don't you love the gray suits and big hair?  Definitely an 80's wedding.  I am sure one day my kids will feel the same way and look back at our photos and ask J and I what we were thinking!


  1. K-T: This post is a-freakin-mazing. I LOVE IT!!!!! You look gorgeous and so does your Mom! And you both are such sweet & lovely couples!!

    Oh, oh, and the poof sleeves add such a kick!!

  2. Aww thanks girl! Poof sleeves and you can't really tell from the photos but the sleeves on my mom's dress also had frills. Gotta love 80s wedding fashion :)

  3. Just be thankful your mom didn't fall into the 80s cowboy hat veil trend that was sweeping the nation. HAHA
