The wedding I went to last weekend, Jeff and Joanna's, was absolutely beautiful. I wish I would have taken more pictures, but to be completely honest, I was so caught up in the love of the wedding that I didn't even think about it. Regardless, I did catch some photos throughout the weekend!
The wedding weekend started with the bachelorette party in Addison, where we went to get our nails done, had a lingerie shower in the hotel room, and then went out for dinner and karaoke at an interesting restaurant.

Kathy, the Maid of Honor (who did a fabulous job her first time ever participating in a wedding, might I add) reserved the bus for us to eat inside, because Jeff actually proposed on a school bus (since he actually first asked her out on a school bus). It was a little hard to navigate around the tables, but it was worth it!
The next day, Lauren (a bridesmaid) and I went shopping at an outdoor mall, then met up with Joanna's extended family for lunch. We also met the rest of the groomsmen (one of them was a HS teacher who taught "Ag." I had to ask what it was, which means clearly I did not grow up in the south), which was fun.
Then, we had the rehearsal and rehearsal dinner. The rehearsal went painlessly, and the rehearsal dinner was delicious! I got to sit next to Joanna's cousin Julia who was quite possibly my favorite person ever. We bonded over shared love of 90s music and ridiculous knowledge of Eminem lyrics.
This is Kathy, the MOH and a good friend. Somehow this is only one of 3 photos I have of me of the weekend, which clearly shows how awesomely into human contact I was during the wedding. Love it!
Then Saturday was the wedding. We all went to get our hair done at a salon, then headed to the church to get ready. This is one of my favorite photos (not pictured is Joanna, purposely hidden in the background, and Carla, a bridesmaid who had to run back to the hotel room) of the girls finishing getting ready.
The gorgeous bride and me:
Seriously, I had the best time throughout the weekend. I'll leave you with the sweetest photo of Jeff and Joanna during their first dance. So sweet right?
Now that it's over, I'm a little sad that I have nothing else to look forward to for the rest of the summer, but I'm also relieved that all the weddings for this summer are finally over!
