Keuka Lake and Wedding Shenanigans

I went home this past weekend for my uncle's wedding, and decided to tack on a trip to visit my best friend at her college in the Finger Lakes! 

First (decent) selfie from my brand new iPhone 6! My hat is from Delia's forever ago, my vest is from J. Crew, and my sweater is from Gap.

It was a bit overcast, but actually really nice weather for a majority of the day we were there. This is the little downtown area. Unfortunately, most of the shops were closed, but it was still cute to walk around. I love the different colored buildings and ornate detailing near the roof!

One of the shops that was open was, conveniently, a candy shop! It was decorated very cute for Halloween and they had a bunch of "older" candy that you basically only see in other small candy shops. I picked my dad up some peanut butter fudge and it was delicious (I snuck a bite or two, I can't even lie).

We spent quite a bit of time walking around her campus, as it was absolutely gorgeous in the fall time. It was so weird being on a campus that had a lot of grass and wasn't arranged in a straight line down city blocks. It reminded me a lot of Emmanuel College when I toured a couple of years ago and made me sort of miss the trees.

Would this little spot on the water not be the best place to read or write or just sit and chat? I fell in love and we were only down there for a few minutes before we headed back up to her room before it got too dark.

The festive candle on our table at dinner! We went to The Keuka Restaurant and it was so good! We were really hungry by the time our food came, so there are no pictures! Also, my friends got chicken fingers and I got a chicken sandwich so it wasn't anything too fancy ;)

It's not a trip with my friend Janelle without some ice cream involved. Seneca Farms makes their own homemade ice cream and I can attest to it's brilliance. In Janelle's cone is pumpkin pie ice cream, my cup is peanut butter cup, and Katie got their equivalent of an Oreo Blizzard from Dairy Queen. My tummy was definitely full after this, but it was so worth it.

Sunday was my uncle's wedding and a lot of my family came in town for it. It's always nice to see everyone all in one place (and to see us dressed up, we're totally a jeans & t-shirt family!).

There was a gorgeous gazebo outside of the church, so I of course made my mother take some pictures of me. The weather with the leaves was just too tempting not to and we had some time to kill before the reception. For somebody who is usually very awful at taking pictures, Mamma Jamma did a pretty solid job this time around!

Dress: Forever21 (shocking, I know)
Shoes: JCPenney
Coat: BCBGMaxazria

The reception was held in a relatively new hall on the river. I went outside to take this pictures, but the hall had massive windows overlooking this gorgeous view on the exterior walls without having to deal with the chilly fall temperatures!

I know it's a bit dark, but it was too beautiful not to take photos outside. I switched from my JCPenney heels because they didn't quite fit right with my pantyhose on. However, these Lauren Conrad booties did the trick. They're my go-to fall shoe for nicer family events.

This was my "Yo, Harry Styles, where are you?" pose. He never showed.

And we shall end this post with a photo of my dog, being his weird self.

How was your weekend?
