Wedding Recap!

Well after an exhausting weekend filled with family, friends, fun, and gorgeous weddings, I'm excited to report back with some pictures! Ashley and Trevor's (my brother) wedding was perfect! Ashley looked beautiful, Trevor was beaming from ear to ear, and there was a great turnout. I had so much fun visiting with friends and family from out of town and dancing the night away at the reception. The dance floor was full pretty much the whole time.......what more can you ask for?

This is the only pic I've seen from the wedding day so far. The newlyweds!


Here are a few pics of the rehearsal dinner:

My mom and I did the decorations for the rehearsal dinner with the help of some wonderful friends. We could not have done it without them. They did all the setting up while we were at the rehearsal and they did all the flower arrangements. We seriously cannot thank them enough. They kept us somewhat sane throughout the crazy, hectic day!

Here are the mini floral arrangements. I found these little vases at a garage sale a while back. They were old spice jars that someone was selling for $5 for 35. I absolutely love them and they worked perfectly for the rehearsal. Our friend Jess had the idea to spray paint twigs with gold glitter and put them in the jars...last minute, we decided they needed some flowers too! I think they turned out darling.Jess also came up with the idea to add orange slices to the mason jars filled with candles. Great idea!!!!We put our talented friend, Laura in charge of the flowers and she did a GREAT job! She came up with the idea to use cranberries in the jars and I LOVE how it turned out!I found this idea on Pinterest and thought it would be perfect for a fall touch to the rehearsal decor. We used popcorn, red beans, and split peas....so easy and cute!

I also got this idea on Pinterest and I immediately fell in love with it. I used real pumpkins and spray painted them off white and then wrote on them with a black paint pen. I'm so glad Pinterest came along because I don't know what I'd do without every one's wonderfully genius ideas!


The day after my brother's wedding, I attended Lance and Brandi's wedding. It was also a gorgeous and super fun wedding! Brandi looked beautiful and it was so sweet the way Lance looked at her. They wrote their own vows and made all of us cry! It was so much fun getting to reunite with all my best friends from high school. Even though we see each other quite often, it was still great to see the out-of-towners and all celebrate the new couple. We danced the night away and hung out with the couple for a while after the wedding. Can't wait for the next engaged couple to get married so we can do it all over again (that's you, Alli and Ryan! WOO!)

They had a nice little choreographed dance going on.Look at Lance's big grin.A very special group of friends. So thankful for each and every one of them. Don't know what I'd do without you all!I gave my camera to some girl to take a group pic and right after she took the first picture an old school N'SYNC song started playing and all at the same time everyone started dancing. This pic is the result. I LOVE IT!
