Exactly one month ago yesterday, my sister married her best friend. I was so honored to stand by her as her matron of honor. It's been a busy year of endless planning for the couple. They are both very detail oriented and were very involved in everything. But their many efforts were worth it. Their dream wedding came true! I couldn't be happier for them.
Because I was part of the wedding party, I didn't take as many pictures as I'd liked, but here are a few from their special day.
Drybar. They don't do haircuts. You just choose from a list of blowouts and sit back and relax with your beverage of choice. This was my first time there and I know it won't be my last!
Getting ready at the hotel. My Mom looking way too pretty, she might have upstaged us all!
Me with the beautiful bride.
Sadly, I wasn't able to take any pictures during the ceremony. So let's skip over to the reception. I mainly took a ton of pictures of the details.
They had different centerpieces. Some tables had the tall vases with branches and baby's breath. Others had a lower setting with a variety of vases filled with succulents and yellow roses. The table numbers were made by my Mom. We bought foam, cut out the numbers and she wrapped each and every one of them with ombre colored yarn.
"Spread the Love" honey jars as wedding favors.
The couple wanted jars covered in gold glitter, so that was my contribution! I just took Elmer's glue and added water to water it down a bit and brushed it really quickly on the inside of the jars. Then I poured the glitter, gave it a good shake, and shook off the excess glitter. And most of the jars were also used during the proposal!
You can better see the "glam" jars below, with the newlyweds!
And I can't forget my leading men (and my Mom, the extra)!
Three generations of first-borns.
The next day, we had some relatives over and I took pictures of my the bouquets and the honey jars, for fun.
I know I missed a ton, so head on over to their fabulous photographers' blog to see more pics. If you are local, I highly recommend Tucker Images. They are a husband and wife team and they were awesome to work with. Not to mention, they produce such beautiful works of art!
I'm so happy for my sister and my new brother-in-law. Thank you for letting me join in on the ride. Now you can relax and enjoy your happily ever after!
