FOTD & OOTD: Geneviève & Donald's wedding

Saturday, my friends and I gathered together to celebrate our friends Geneviève and Donald's wedding, and I wanted to share some pictures with you.

The wedding was celebrated in a church somewhere in Laval, but I don't remember which one it was. The reception was held at Buffet Il Gabbiano, which is where my friends and I celebrated our prom!

Unfortunately, I absolutely didn't have the time to snap some close-up pictures of my makeup, but it was a basic gold and brown smokey eye - just like I always do (=

 The bride and the groom

We have known Gen since high school, so it's great to still be in touch with her and to have the chance to be with here in this very special day. Donald is also a great and funny guy!

I got this dress from Winner for only $25! 

 I tried to find pictures of the back of my dress, and those are the only ones I found.

Strapless dresses are so annoying, but I couldn't resist this one... especially in this color! I also wore some bracelets and earrings (the same the bride wore!) that I borrowed from my mother, along with a simple necklace I got from Etsy. I wanted all the attention to be on the dress!

Véro, Gen, Sara and me before entering in the church.

With the girls, again

With my other friend Gen (who reads my blog - Hi Gen!)

 The cake! Yummy ^^


And these are the only pictures I found where you can - almost - cleary see my makeup:

Avon SuperExtend Mascara - Black
Annabelle Galaxy Eyeshadow Palette - Shooting Star
Annabelle Glitterama Liquid Eyeliner - Funshine (upper lash line)
Maybelline Expert Wear Eyeshadow Singles - Vanilla (highlighter)
Maybelline Unstoppable Eyeliner - Onyx

Annabelle Zebra Bronzing Powder - Haute Gold
Marcelle Minerlas Powder Blush - Natural Glow
Annabelle Satellite Pearl Powder - Celestial Pearl

Mary Kay SignatureLip Gloss - Pink Diamonds

For my hair, I went for the usual loose waves. At first, I wanted to curl it with a curling iron but I ran out of time. Next time, maybe?

  12. Wow you look so beautiful Gaby! I love your hair, makeup and I remember that strapless dress that you said you were saving for your gf's wedding :) It looks great - love the bow at the back too!
    The bride and groom look so happy - everyone looks so happy! The atmosphere of weddings are so touching and sweet :) The pictures turned out so nice and you look great with your boyfriend. I must say, you have very good looking guy friends too LOL I haven't been to a wedding since I was a little kid!! Can you believe?! My gf Jasmin said her friend Oi is getting married this coming November and I'm chosen as a bridesmaid. It's going to be in Thailand, I think I will go but it's a bit of a trip to get to Thailand ;)
    About the Aveeno Eczema cream, it's been very very good at helping my eczema not flare up. My right hand looks really good almost all the time now for the past month I have used the cream and it's never been like that. I always had problems before with it getting pretty bad/itchy/scaly. I use Aveeno regular lotion everyday for my body and it's not the same as the eczema one because I use to use the regular Aveeno on my hands and my fingers would still get itchy. I highly recommend it! :)

  13. You look stunning! :) And you and your boyfreind are so sweet together :)

  14. Great dress! You and your bf are so cute together!
