These three girls have been best friends since 6th grade and somehow all managed to get engaged at the same time! Their weddings are within 3 months of each other.

    This is so much fun! Thanks for sharing! (Although I do wonder HOW I’ll manage to get anything done here at work today, as of course I’ll HAVE to check in everytime I have the chance!) Can’t believe you look so relaxed with those pulled muscles (… or were those the pain meds kicking in? ha, ha!)

    Gorgeous hairdo’s!
    But Katie, I also like your frizzy hair! Don’t fret about it :):):)

  13. I love the photo of Michelle getting ready for her toast – I think it encapsulates everything great about wedding toasts.

  14. I love weddings…love them but what I get especially excited about besides the obvious (The CAKE) it’s the frills, the mimosas, the nails, the perfect shade of pink, the smell of the otherwise highly toxic hairspray.. why the primping of course.

  15. Trish

    Gorgeous pictures! Thank you for showing the back of your head! Grins…pretty hairdo…how hard was it to take down the next morning??

    Humidity..don’t you just love it? We had a rainy weekend so my head looked like it wouldn’t fit into a bushel basket!

  20. So much fun! Can’t wait to see how Ginny looked in her dress 🙂

    I’m getting married near Pensacola in April…do you have the contact info for your hair salon and SKIN? I’d love to check them out!

    1. Katie

      I don’t have their contact info, but you can probably Google it. Our make up girl was Erin and she was AMAZING. Super nice, really easy to work with, and she did a fantastic job! She made us look just like the pictures we picked out!

      1. flutter

        Is this them? http://skinbeautyboutique.com/ Had a bit of trouble finding it the first go; Erin’s name helped!

        1. Katie

          That’s it! Tell Erin that Ginny Tillman’s sister recommended her! 🙂

          1. flutter

            Definitely! I love the blog (naturally!), but I must admit I’m enjoying seeing your sister’s wedding so that I can get a few vendor names! I’m up in Atlanta, so finding local FL vendors has been a little challenging with no one to recommend anyone. THANK YOU. <3

  22. I am loving your play by play of the day! I love weddings! Thanks for sharing all the details! 🙂

  23. Katie, you look so great! I hope I look as good as you do after I have a baby. I’m not just saying that 🙂

  24. Jeska

    Haha poor Chris. You guys all look great though!

  25. […] Ginny and her husband, John Michael, were married last April (see posts about her wedding here, here, here, here, and here) and since then have been living in southern Virginia where he was […]
