Out of the Blue.....get dressed with me

Hi beauties:

I've never actually done a post like this before but I gotta keep it creative ya know!

This past Sunday, friends and family gathered together to witness the union of two beautiful people, my cousin (the groom) and his very humble, kind and loving wife. Whenever there is an event concerning any of my family members, the entire family shows up and that is one of the many things that I love about my family.
The wedding colours were fuchsia and baby blue so my aunt (groom's mother) requested that everyone wear something blue. It was a simple yet intimate garden wedding and although the sun was unmerciful, everything turned out beautiful.....including the bride's makeup ;)

I wore an off-the-shoulder, one-sleeved shift dress with waves of a variation of blues and accented with blue accessories. Normally I would throw another colour in the mix but I wanted to keep my outfit simple. Afterall, this momentous occasion was not about me.
