The perfect accessory to a ruffly pink wedding dress is a taco truck

'Scuse me while I pick my jaw up off the floor. Shawanda's pink wedding dress is pretty much everything I wanted as a pink-mad eight-year-old. Who am I kidding — it's still a major part of my fashion dreams. Ruffles, mermaid skirt, long-ass train, a brooch at the waist… Shawanda is divine.

But trust: there were lots of awesome details to take in at Shawanda and John's wedding this past March in Atlanta. For example, check out the sweet Unplugged Wedding sign the couple placed outside their ceremony. I also love that Shawanda and John opted for no dessert and put all the focus on taco truck goodness. And for my favorite photo ever, scroll until you see John holding hands with his best man/brother while he's waiting for Shawanda to walk down the aisle. No, you're crying.

  1. This might be one of my favorite weddings ever on the blog- so sweet and unassuming, and that note from the groom made me tear up. Plus, Shawanda rocks that dress SO HARD. Congratulations, you guys!

  2. Thanks for featuring our wedding!! This made me relive the ENTIRE day again – such a fun day! Also…we worked with the BEST.VENDORS.EVER. xoxo

  3. Shawanda you look STUNNING in that dress! I don't like pink, or ruffles, but you pull it off exceptionally well!

  4. Love both of the brides dresses so much! I never thought I liked girly outfits (and still mostly don't dress that way) but these two dresses make me swoon. The soft pink ruffles and the emerald green sequins. The bride is gorgeous!!

  5. This wedding looks so sweet, and yet so fun! Love the dress – I'm not much of a fan of pink or ruffles but that she really rocks that dress and it looks fabulous.

  6. This wedding and everything and everyone in it is absolutely gorgeous! Everyone looks so very happy. 😀
