Finally wanted to share some pics from my sister’s wedding weekend. While this was definitely more of a special event than an “everyday” occurrence, I don’t always share posts about life, even though they’re my favorite posts to read!
The rehearsal dinner was Friday night and it was gorgeous:
Having the best time with my girls!
The wedding was magical and my sister made the most beautiful bride!
We started the day by backing her now-husband’s car into a telephone pole. OOPS. Really the two of us couldn’t have started the day any other way… Unfortunately we both have this nasty infection and just kind of floated. We had to take shots of Fireball before the ceremony to stop coughing! It surprisingly helped…
My wonderful, sweet grandfather performed the ceremony which made it even more special. I cried as soon as he started praying! My sister was the most low-key bride and the ceremony lasted only around 10 minutes. Short and sweet!
They served breakfast foods at the reception because it’s my sister’s favorite meal. How cool? There were waffle and biscuit bars, potatoes, and plenty of bacon! We started with mimosas and mini-quiche, and the wine and beer were flowing. The DJ is a family friend and he had the best playlist!
And the wedding:
The wedding day was on my maternal grandfather’s birthday. He passed away in 2012, and for her something blue, my mom sewed a piece of his pajamas into my sister’s dress. He was the greatest and we all miss him every single day. Our Papa Cornbread was with us! This was right after my sister shared it with my grandmother:
My sister and dad.
The bride and bridesmaids sharing a pre-wedding toast with my mom!
The gorgeous couple!
I think our sweet flower girl enjoyed the dance floor!
Their mini-cake and topper:
A house divided!
I also wanted to share a DIY Wedding Day Emergency Kit I put together for the big day. If you’re getting married or in a wedding soon, this is a must-have! We used every item in this kit, and being prepared really saved the day. I actually forgot the chalk and had to send my mom home for some as my sister’s dress had a couple of black spots on it- chalk works wonders for covering stains! Who knew?
It was the best day and I’m so grateful I was asked to be my sister’s Maid of Honor.
And now it’s time for Christmas!
