Thursday, October 11, 2012

Words some of us never thought we would hear for our dear friends Lauren and Andy...I pronounce you husband and wife!! He only made her wait almost 7 years, but it FINALLY happened this past weekend and we were all there to celebrate in style.
Friday morning, the bridesmaids and special friends gathered to celebrate our darling Lauren with a girls only brunch. We had too much fun and she surprised us with some wonderful gifts, too! Monogrammed robes (AMAZING), initial necklaces, and flip flops to wear for the reception. That afternoon, we headed out to the lodge we were staying at and took it easy before heading to the rehearsal and dinner.

Friday night we gathered at the country club for dinner and then spent the majority of the night toasting the happy couple and closing down the bar...too much fun I tell you! (and P.S. let's just go ahead and say a BIG thank you for the out of town bags and including multiple packs of Advil for the next day...LOL

Saturday morning, I was up and at it early to meet the other ladies to get our hair and makeup done. We lounged around all morning, then got dressed, and took pictures all afternoon! It was a bit chilly, but we couldn't have asked for better "picture weather"...before too long, it was showtime!
Getting beautiful!

After the cerremony in Lauren's childhood church, we all headed to the fairgrounds for their reception. It looked gorgeous inside and fit their personalities so well...it was amazing to see so  many of their friends and family come together for their wedding and we all had too much fun celebrating the happy couple! We most certainly shut it down that night all over again.
