As those who have read my blog recently know, I've been pretty busy going from wedding to wedding, watching a ton of friends get married. It's been a blast, and yesterday was my final wedding of the season (until Katie and Kyle get married in October, but I don't know if I'll be able to fly home for that). Before I post photos of the most recent wedding, I wanted to finish posting my pictures from my bestie Liz's wedding from Memorial Day!
Enjoy this picture-heavy post of my bestie Liz getting married!
Getting ready, the makeup artist (and the same woman who eventually did my hair) Jessica was fabulous. Although Liz needs no makeup, she looked absolutely gorgeous.
Richard, one of the other two cosmetologists, is Liz's favorite hair stylist. Liz's hair was similarly perfect!
Liz made us matching tank tops that say "Bridesmaid" (or in Casey's case, "Matron of Honor"). From left to right, here's Casey, Beth, Liz, me, and Amy.
My fabulous bestie in her gorgeous dress!
One of my favorite photos: catching Liz checking out her makeup in the mirror.
I have no pictures of the actual ceremony, because I was in it! However, you can trust that it was a beautiful ceremony! At one point, Beth's daughter (who was a flower girl) started fussing and wouldn't be quiet, so Beth had to take her away from the ceremony. During the recessional, since Beth was gone, I got to escort two men back down the aisle, which was kind of awesome. Pimpin' it up, you know my style. ;) Kidding.
The reception was in Liz's parents' barn, which was decked out in rolls of gossamer with three gorgeous chandeliers. My style would have been little more country chic (considering it was a barn) but it looked gorgeous as a formal reception venue. Liz's mom Cathy (and friends Tina and Janet) did a beautiful job decorating the inside.
The first dance was beautiful as well! How deeply in love they look, and so happy too!
Catching a sweet moment right before the father/daughter dance, here is the newly elected Mr. Ralph Patterson (McLennan County Republican Party Chairman)!
Casey gave a very sweet MOH speech to Liz and Travis.
Here are Liz and her mother Cathy, looking as gorgeous as ever. No doubting their relation in this photo!
Trent graciously accepted my invitation to be my plus one and was a fantastic date (any man who made sure I was always holding a margarita is my type of guy). We didn't get to dance together (I barely got a chance to sit and eat!) but we have plenty of photobooth pictures!
The exit was filled with sparklers (and, unlike Sumerlin's wedding, no sparkler injuries!) and a ton of love.
You can kind of see my bridesmaid's dress in the background of this photo, but that's not why I love it.
So that was Liz's wedding last weekend. Gorgeous, right? It was a ton of fun and my cheeks still hurt from smiling (although it could be because of Joanna's wedding from yesterday too)! I love celebrating love.
Stay tuned for pictures of Joanna's bachelorette party/rehearsal dinner/wedding! I haven't gotten a chance to look at them (as I haven't been back in Waco for 12 hours yet!) but I cannot wait to show you some Jeff & Joanna love.
Been to any weddings recently? Do you have many planned for this summer?
