Royal Wedding Fever (One year later)

Okay, I’ll admit it. I’m still kinda obsessed over Wills and Kate and still dream about their fairytale wedding. Now that we’re coming up on their 1 year wedding anniversary I’m starting to feel some nostalgia over last year’s beautiful ceremony at Westminster Abbey. That day, I woke up at 6am to watch (and cry) live – texting back and forth with my mom and sisters about the dress, the guests, Wills and Harry joking at the alter, and everything in between.

Let’s take a look at some of my favorite highlights from the 2011 Royal Wedding:

The moment Kate stepped out of the car and saw the thousands gathered to watch her get married…

The perfect ceremony location. How amazing is Westminster Abbey? Love those tall trees along the aisle. Although, I’m sure the guests who had to sit behind those weren’t that happy.

The Bride and her father walking down the aisle followed by the bridal party.

The moment when Harry looked back and saw that Kate was just feet away from them. He then whispered something into William’s ear and you could see that William had to try HARD not to turn around to take a peek at his bride.

The crowd gets their first glimpse of them as man and wife — the crowd goes wild!

The happy couple

There’s nothing NOT to love about this moment…the kiss and the flower girl.

Such a cute surprise and ending to the wedding. Simply adorable.

Welcome to the Dirty Thirties Kate!

The Duchess of Cambridge is celebrating her birthday today, and since we’ve I’ve been obsessed with her ever since the Royal Wedding I figured I’d celebrate by admiring some of her best outfits over the last year. I almost need two posts to get in all my favorites, but had to contain myself and give you those at the top of my list.

I love her classic style, yet I think she surprises us by being (a little) daring at times. I love the clutch she’s rocking on Canada Day – top middle – it looks like a Spanish fan (abanico) and that dress is gorgeous; it’s actually the same one she wore for her engagement pictures. And those fascinators….a-m-a-z-i-n-g. Can we please adopt that trend in the US?

Happy 30th Kate!
