Wedding Weekend

This past weekend I went to my hometown to watch my best friend from high school get married. Chelsey had 5 bridesmaids: her 2 sister-in-laws along with Kristan, Carmen and I. The three of us plus Chelsey have been friends since pre-school. It was so much fun to spend the whole weekend together. Chelsey and Jonathan are so cute together and will make each other very happy! I can't wait to have them over for dinner. They only live 20 minutes from me now!

The pumpkin made a picture!! It set next to the guest book table, but I didn't get a chance to snap a pic of that.


My dad made this arch for me to use in my wedding. It has now been through 3 weddings: mine, my sister's and Chelsey's. I bet he had know idea that we would get this much use out of it!

Rose petal covered aisle

Me and the Matron of Honor, Kristan, helping Chelsey get into her dress. I put this picture in because I did her eye make-up and you can kind of see it in this picture. I should have taken a close-up of it, but we were so busy doing other things I didn't even think about it. I was really pleased with how it turned out. She looked gorgeous!

The bridal bouquet. The groom had a twin brother that died when they were 2. The butterfly was placed in the bouquet to remember him and include him in their special day.

Old mason jars with ribbon and their monogram were the vases for the centerpieces. They were filled with white hydrangeas. I loved this old basket they were in.

The flower that made up part of her veil.
The girlies!

Chels and I at rehearsal dinner. The restaurant was so neat. This zebra wallpaper made up the back wall. There were several little alcoves off the main room and they all had different black and white wall paper. I was in LOVE!

  13. Fun weekend with friends! And, that pumpkin is precious! I've always thought that an outdoor fall-themed wedding with tons of pumpkins lining the aisle would be so whimsical. What a great idea you had!
