We love Wednesdays around these parts, and if you know why, you already have your cursor on the refresh button ready for its Wedding Wednesday workout. For those of you new to SMP (welcome!), we use this day as a way to crank out the pretty by showing snippets of each soiree, and then letting you get lost in each of their fabulous full galleries. See what I mean? It's easy to see why Wednesdays have our hearts over here...

Can I tell you what also has my heart? This lovely shabby chic celebration by Shan Cunningham Photography. Hello beyond adorable flower girl! And that cake? Well it has me craving its sweetness for breakfast so much so I might just indulge. Can you blame me? The entire event is sweet as can be and don't forget, there is even more in the full gallery of images!

From Shan Cunningham Photography...Rachele and JD were married at the beautiful Jefferson Street Mansion in Benicia, CA. Rachele did an amazing job with all of the details from her wedding!

When I met Rachele several months ago (before the Giants won the World Series and when my belly was big and round) I knew that I was going to love her. She was so sweet and reminded me of a Southern Girl from Texas! She told me her colors and I immediately went back to one of my favorite childhood (and adulthood) movies Steel Magnolias and the line where Julia Roberts says, “my colors are blush and bashful” and her mom (Sally Fields) chimes in “her colors are Pink and Pink” with the most Southern accent you can find. Anyways, if you know me, you know I love Steel Magnolias and I absolutely love all things from the South (I grew up in Texas).
