The Hangover Brunch: Part I

& just like that, we’re at THE HANGOVER BRUNCH.

I mean not really, it took us a while to get here but hey, I had to be thorough.

So THE HANGOVER BRUNCH was very much necessary.

…Especially when you’ve stayed up until 3 AM the night ( morning? ) before.

Like times are tough the day after your wedding, you feel me?

I slowly dragged my ass out of bed & made fun of Michael for ten minutes about how his life is over, blah, blah. Drank some peppermint tea & then RALLIED.


I WAS TIRED AF butttt ya gotta do what you gotta do.

Of course Michael saved his pink shirt, glad-handing moment for when he made his entrance into the THE HANGOVER BRUNCH.

I feel like the wedding night is all about the bride & he wanted his bridezilla comeback the next day. When he walked into The One & Only Palmilla’s terrace restaurant everyone applauded & he loved every second. Truthfully I was very focused on his light pink shirt which was very TSC-esque ( right? ). Anyway, this was his time to shine. He basically almost put on tap shoes.

Kygo played in the background while everyone was served THE YUMMIEST, CALORIE-FILLED BREAKFAST FOOD.

Like I skipped the cake because of THE HANGOVER BRUNCH.

Remember in Charlie & The Chocolate Factory when the bunch got to see the factory? I wanted our guests to be surrounded by goodness & sugar & more champagne.

So everyone was surrounded by blueberry plush pancakes, warm maple syrup, chocolate croissants, espresso shots, strawberry/basil waffles, eggs, crispy bacon, pomegranate muffins, watermelon, & more chips & salsa ( <<< HAD TO ).

& of course, Suja Juice because I had to throw in a healthy twist. Lavender Lemon mimosas & Lemon Love spicy vodka sodas everywhere. Hair of the dog PLZ…with a side of ten chocolate croissants.

Skipped the cake, went for fatty/sugary breakfast. Festive.

For my look here I did white ( shocking ) with two braids. Easy & quick. I feel like my hair & makeup girls were so hungover that we did what we could. I loved that they were hungover.

I did a big lash, lip gloss, & a bunch of magic eye brightener because NO ONE needed to see those hungover bags under my eyes.

Flowers were from the night before- continuing with more drama. Arete Floral made it come together & Esoteric Events streamlined the process.

HUGE THANK YOU TO THE ONE & ONLY PALMILLA for putting up with us- you were AMAZING.

The crew was amazing but what did we loved most? Guests didn’t want to leave!

That’s what I wanted- people to WANT to be there.

  1. I LOVE this. Your line about Michael putting on tap shoes literally made me laugh out loud. That’s exactly what I want for my wedding, too – people to want to be there. Like I literally dread going to most weddings I am invited to. I do NOT want that to be the case for mine. You guys did such a great job making your family & friends feel so crazy welcome and wanted there.

  2. YUM YUM YUM! I’m hungry now!!
