Stylish Genes: Pam's Wedding

A couple months ago, I went to visit my parents and found a goldmine: some old polaroids from my Aunt's wedding way back in the day. I can't get over how chic everyone looks in these pictures, and it inspired me to do a post series about the stylish women in my life. So for my first edition here, I am featuring my Aunt Pam's wedding with pictures of my Aunt Pam, my mom (Sandi), and my Grams (Beth).

The picture above features my aunt Pam as the bride, my mom (to her immediately left) as the maid of honor, and the rest of the bridesmaids. I love the tailored bridesmaid dresses and adorable little veils. So chic.

My mom with the preacher (so gorgeous momma!). I love that big flower in her hair, her big doe eyes, and stellar cheekbones - I wish I could have inherited all of this ;).

The bride's dressing room.

And last but not least:

My grandma (Beth) and auntie Pam. Grams looks so adorably chic here. That blue dress, elbow gloves, pillbox hat and jewels....what a knockout! (We miss you tons Grams) And of course Aunt Pam is stunning here too.

My auntie passed from cancer before I was born, but looking at these photos of her and my mom makes me wish I could have seen the sisterly bond they had together. I've heard a lot of great stories (my auntie used to always borrow my mom's Thunderbird and pretend it was hers, lol), and I'm always reminded how grateful I am to have the women I do in my life. I've come from some very great women and am happy to have a little moment of reflection on them.




  1. So chic is right! The dresses are so simple but so elegant. And then I think to that awful 80s era when dresses, hair and shoulder pads were so over the top - looking back at my sister's wedding from 1985, we just laugh at how ridiculous everyone looked in mountains of frills.

  2. Chic is an understatement. I love your Grandmother's outfit. It's amazing..
