Another Wedding Weekend!

Hello friends!! I'm coming to you from my brand new iMAC!!!!!!!  Yes, that's right, I've traded in my little ol Macbook and upgraded.  And so far I am loving it!  Seriously all I want to do is sit in front of this little baby and stare at it all day long.  

Thus why I was absent Monday and Tuesday.  I was dying to type my next post on my new toy! And boy does it feel good.

Ok so this past weekend was an absolute blast!  I was lucky enough to be part of yet another good friends wedding party.  This time I found myself flying into Phoenix, Arizona.  Well technically we were in Tempe, which is a small suburb of Phoenix.  The bride is one of my best friends from Disney, Kelly.  And as I mentioned last Friday, this wedding was going to be extra special because it was the first time since 2009 that we 6 roommates/best friends were together again.  

Here were the highlights! :)

Friday
I got to Phoenix bright and early and most of the day was spent running a few errands and just spending time with a few of the other bridesmaids.  Later that afternoon the entire bridal party (minus the boys obviously) made our way to the salon and had manis/pedis together.  It was the perfect way for all the bridesmaids and the bride to bond and relax a little.  

Friday night was the rehearsal and rehearsal dinner.  It was a a very laid back affair and so much fun. We had the best time chatting and eating and chatting some more.  Following the rehearsal dinner the whole bridal party (bridesmaids, groomsman, and even family members from both sides) all headed to a fun dueling piano bar on Mill Ave in Tempe.  


My best friend Abby (who I met on my very first Disney College Program in 2008) have been friends for about 7 years now.  We've spent holidays together, gone on vacations together, and individually send each others parents.  And this was the very first time our parents met!  They were so excited and basically fell in love with each other while we were there.  It was awesome.



Saturday

WEDDING DAY!!!

We woke up bright and early to run a few last minute errands with the bride.  And of course a Starbucks run was in order!


The rest of the day was an amazing day filled with: lots of hairspray, tons of makeup, a glass or two (or in some cases three) of mimosas, pretty robes, a bunch of laughter and an obscene amount of love for the bride.  

The wedding was perfect.  Everything went off without a hitch and the reception was a blast.  We danced, we cried, we laughed, we loved, we ate, and we drank.  It really was one of the best days ever.  And here are a few pictures to prove it! :)

Enjoy!






My mom was an absolute angel and made all the bridesmaids bouquets!  They were perfect and smelled heavenly!





Sunday

I said goodbye to all my wonderful friends and my amazing parents and spent the day getting back to Houston.  Gotta love all day travel days. 

Overall the weekend was phenomenal.  I am so blessed to have so many amazing friends and family in my life and this weekend helped remind me of that.  :)

Happy Hump-day friends!

It sounds like you had the best time at the wedding this weekend! It's always the best feeling when great friends who have been apart for a while all get reunited. There's no better feeling! I loved y'all's bridesmaids dresses too! I always love it when the necklines are all different.

How interesting post!! I loved this wedding. Your outfit looked the best among all. I am also going to the bridesmaid in my cousin’s destination wedding at some beachside LA venues and want to have such special outfit. If you have any bridesmaid’s dress inspirations then please share!
