What weekends do to me.

They straight up wear me OUT. Especially when they are as busy as mine was!
This weekend was one to remember though, that's for sure. I had a blast celebrating one of my best friends and her wedding weekend! Friday night was the rehearsal dinner at the church, and I was so happy my husband was there with me. We had fun listening to toasts and eating pizza catered in from a little shop in Dayton. Honestly, I have no words for the amount of fun I had Friday night into Saturday. I got to have a sleepover with my college besties, and I laughed so hard I almost got sick...ha! So, I'll let the thousand pictures I took do the talking. 
Rehearsal dinner.
Getting our nails done, and hitting up Cheesecake Factory!

Around 2:30AM, Lyndsie and I finally fell asleep (after laughing way too hard!)
When we woke up...it was time for ALL THINGS WEDDING!
and their adorable pup, Bullet.
I was in LOVE with my hair, the stylist did a great job!!
"I feel like a real WIFE now!!"

Becca gifted us these robes the night before. LOVE!

As for Becca? She looked absolutely STUNNING...I teared up just looking at her!!

We had way too much fun this entire morning. We headed off to the church, and Becca got in her dress. Then it was time for a few selfies before she walked down that aisle!
Top left...yeah, I just couldn't stop sweating. Don't mind me :)
The ceremony was beautiful! I truly am so happy for the two of them. It was fun being in a wedding, I quite liked it. Can't wait for the next! As for the reception? It was STUNNING. I left my camera in the car for it on accident, but I can promise you it was gorgeous. She and her mom did an absolute gorgeous job on the venue. I was in love! Caleb and I had a great time, too. I'm thankful he had a place to stay while I crashed with the girls (thanks, Tyler!), and that I could squeeze him at the reception. Love this handsome man!

Sunday was another busy day. I had an engagement shoot in the early afternoon, and then also got to visit my grandpa Phil in the hospital. It was so great seeing him, and although he couldn't talk. He wrote notes and gestured most of his responses. We spent a good hour with him, and it was so great. Thanks for all your sweet prayers.

Once we got home, we had a few people over for a Superbowl party. All I have to say is -- that was the most uneventful game I've ever seen. The Bronco's got shut down, and the commercials weren't all that great this year. There were a few good ones, but overall I didn't love them...but hanging out witha a few of my favorite people definitely made up for it!
Hope you all had a fun weekend!
