Weekend Recap - Wedding Edition

It's Monday...and there aren't emails and texts going back and forth with pictures and questions and wedding details. I feel a little lost. 

This weekend was my BFF's wedding. It feels like we have been planning this one forever since we started right around their first date. In other ways, it seems like this time went by so quickly.

Besides getting called "Laura" several times when her name is actually "Lora" {kind of her pet peeve}, the rehearsal went really well. The preacher officiating the wedding wanted to make sure everyone felt comfortable on the wedding day with when to walk, where to stand, when to do this, that and the other.

The happy couple!

The table as your entered the club. Our friend and fellow bridesmaid, Rachael, actually did all the flowers! She is so talented.

For some reason, I felt like I did something weird with my eyes. LA assured me I didn't....clearly she lied! haha

Bridesmaids! Me, Rach, and Erin. So glad Erin got to come in from Virginia to be part of the wedding festivities. We have missed her!
After the rehearsal we had an amazing dinner prepared by the bride's stepdad, watched a slideshow of photos of the bride, groom and their new family, and then the *awesome* bridesmaids read our speech/toast to the bride. It was so hard keeping the hilarious details of that secret from her. We prepared the ABCs of Lora with memories from our Wolfpack and inside jokes about our friend. She threatened me several times about what we couldn't put in the speech itself. I'm pretty sure she just told me her conservative grandmother would be there to keep it extra clean. Either way, I have the "rough draft" that I want to put together and give to her when they get back from their honeymoon.

Tomorrow's post will be pictures from the wedding itself.
