Prepare for a massive amount of pictures in this post. (Catch part one here!)
So after the rehearsal dinner, we went home and got a good night's sleep. Right? Wrong! My mother, aka Mrs. Last Minute, waited until the night before the wedding to decide that the 150+ chair covers needed to be dried to get some wrinkles out. Naturally, we headed up to the laundromat. : ) (not the precious bride, she was getting sleep, of course!) It was midnight in a laundromat in a somewhat shady area of town. We were so delirious that we laughed until we almost peed our pants. But hey, at least they were wrinkle free when we were done!
The morning of my sister's wedding was quite the busy one. We (myself, my husband, my parents, and some others) headed up to the reception site early that morning to start decorating. Even though it was busy, it was SO much fun getting to spend so much time together. For some reason, when my mom and I get stressed, we just laugh hysterically. One of us will be totally freaking out about something and we just look at each other and crack up laughing. It's really so fun.
Even husband came to help decorate...and totally was amazing! Fireman/wedding planner?!
In the process...before the chair bows were tied.
After several hours at the reception site, my mom and I left to go and meet the bridal party to get our hair done...after a quick stop by Raising Cane's. I mean, it's not like my dress was tight or anything. ; )
The beautiful bride-to-be!
Heading to the church...it was such a gorgeous (110 degree) day.
My wedding shoes...which became my sister's wedding shoes. That makes me SO happy!
The stunning flowers...love, love, love!
Patiently waiting and eating.
My mom helping Whit get dressed and ready.
The prettiest bride ever.
My baby sister and my best friend.
The ceremony was short and sweet and totally perfect. I can't describe the emotions that I felt as I stood beside my sister and watched her marry her groom. It was emotional, it was amazing...I was SO proud.
My parents signing in at the reception.
My sister is a MAJOR dog lover, so their favor was puppy cake pops. The note states that money will be donated to a local animal shelter in honor of all of the guests who attended. I would have taken a picture of one of the pops outside of the bag, but I ate
all 6 of mine before I remembered.
My best friend Melissa and her husband.
Is she not the cutest thing ever?!
The best friends a girl could ask for.
The DJ called all the groomsmen up to come and dance. This is my husband, freaking out. ; )
#totallynervous. So adorable!
Andddddddd they are off!
Wow, is this post finally over?!
Thanks for hanging in there. My sister and her hubby should be coming home today from their honeymoon and I can't wait!! I kinda wish I knew someone getting married every weekend...it's SO fun.
PS: "These Three Things" will be posted tomorrow! Hint: shrimp fork! : )
