A New Years Eve Wedding!

Ahhh its good to be back. A fresh slate always makes me feel awesome!

Last Tuesday morning I picked Caleb up from work and we hit the road for Celina, OH for our friends' NYE wedding! We checked into the hotel, and I headed to the reception hall to help decorate. We all went our separate ways and then met back up that night for the rehearsal & dinner! It was so fun having all the gals back together again! Lynds and I are so stinking excited to meet the first baby of our friend group come August!!!

Other than Caleb's undercooked (correction; not cooked) chicken at dinner, the night was absolutely amazing. Angie gifted the bridesmaids the most adorable monogrammed crew neck sweaters, and I've hardly worn anything else since!! The rehearsal was smooth and there was a good amount of down time so we all obviously had a mini photo shoot ;)

Us ladies had a sleepover (8 of the 9 of us slept in the same house!) and we woke up Wednesday morning with so much excitement!!! NYE was finally here and Ang was going to be married by the nights end!!! We all packed up and headed for the salon to get dolled up!

About two months ago, Lyndsie, Becca and I decided to go in on a gift together for Angie. Recently, they lost her grandmother and it's been really hard for her and her family. So, we had her sister snag a birthday card that Angie still had with her grandmothers hand writing on it, and got it engraved on a small charm that she could wrap around her bouquet with her. It reads "Love you Darling, Grandma". We were all in tears when we gave it to her, and her grandpa happened to be right by her side as she opened it. I'm tearing up just thinking about it. There's nothing like the love of your family!


We all had a blast hanging out together though, and once our make up was done...it was time to head out for photos! Of course it was the COLDEST day of the year up there, but we embraced it and had a blast anyway.



After their super sweet ceremony, it was party time!!!

The reception was pretty long but we obviously wanted to stay until midnight as it was NYE! We had a blast, and of course our feet were SO sore from all that crazy dancing.




Angie seriously was SO stunning. She handled herself with such grace that entire day, and I know she'll make an amazing wife. She's one of the weirdest/silliest people I know, and I mean that in the sweetest way!! I'm so honored that she chose me to be one of the gals to stand by her as she promised her entire life to the man of her dreams. It's been so cool to witness every aspect of their relationship from beginning until now, the biggest day of their lives. They are in Punta Cana this week, and I'm insanely jealous!! I hope you all had an amazing, and SAFE New Year!!
