Hi! Are you guys ready for part two of my wedding weekend? Be sure to check out part one if you haven’t already.
Bright and early, the bridesmaids met the bride and her mother for breakfast Saturday. The bride chose Rachel’s Kitchen since it’s not only a healthier alternative, but within walking distance of her hotel.
I started my morning off with a bellini. The juice tasted fresh squeezed.
For breakfast, we all were drawn to the favorite…
Three eggs scrambled with goat cheese, sundried tomatoes, avocado, mushrooms and basil. Served with breakfast potatoes and toast.
It tasted amazing and was just the pre-wedding fuel that we needed. I loved the idea of putting goat cheese in my eggs. Going to recreate this omelet at home for sure.
After breakfast, we headed up to the room to get started with hair and makeup. You know us girls…these things take some time.
I must have been too preoccupied since I didn’t end up getting lots of shots of us gals getting ready. My sister did come up to the room to do my hair. I took all your considerations in mind and she ended up styling it in a cute side-do. I loved it!
The bride was smart in her wedding shoe choice. She bought these darling flats for the night. No taking off her shoes at the end of the night like us.
Daniella and I all dolled up and ready to go. Except for shoes..we waited until the last minute to put on those babies.
Once at the location of the wedding, the maids’ went to work helping Whitney get in her wedding dress and ready to go.
She made a stunning bride.
After the ceremony, I headed to the cocktail hour where I met up with my date and my parents.
They had beautiful music playing during the cocktail hour. I just love live orchestra music.
My date Sean and I. Before you get any ideas, Sean is like my brother and I’ve known him since 6th grade. He made a great date for the night though. Thanks Sean!
My wonderful, and shall I say swanky, parents who also attended the wedding.
I stuck to mostly white wine since I didn’t want the dreaded stained teeth look you get with red.
Once we were seated, the staff brought out salad. I really loved the balsamic dressing. It had a slight sweetness to it. A+ in my book.
For my entrée, I ordered the chicken with potatoes and vegetables. The chicken was stuffed with, I believe, spinach and cheese. I didn’t end up finishing my meal since I wanted to get dancing.
The bridesmaids flowers were just beautiful! I made sure to take mine home with me.
Then it was time to cut the cake! The cake was so beautiful. My friend really did a great job getting the details right.
One of my favorite parts of the night might’ve been the groom taking off the bride’s garter. He danced over to her and then pulled out a rubber chicken from under her dress. He had us all cracking up!!
One of my other favorite parts of the evening was the father-daughter dance. I have a hard time keeping it together at weddings, especially during that part. The bridesmaids kept turning to me and letting out a smile because any bit of emotion (speeches, kisses, dances, etc.), they knew I would lose it. Who knows how I’m going to be when I get married. I’m sure I’ll need lots of tissues.
The night was just beautiful and I am blessed to have been a part of my friend’s day. And guess who caught the bouquet!?! Yours truly!!
Do you cry at weddings? What is your favorite part about a wedding?
I always love the dancing! You know I was out there getting down to cupid shuffle. I just love that song!!
