Wedding #2

30 Jul

This is going to be a quick recap; I’m spent!

This afternoon, Chris & I attended our second wedding in two weeks (next up is ours!). This week it was my friend (& awesome hairdresser!) Steph’s turn. Steph & I have actually known each other since grade school & became good friends in junior high.

Between the ceremony & reception, we stopped for a quick drink & snack. I dominated this bag of peanut butter M&Ms; these are so good!

Best M&Ms! At the reception, we enjoyed a buffet of salad, baked ziti, chicken, potatoes, & veggies. I didn’t snap any pictures, but it hit the spot! 🙂

I did capture the first dance & also got a decent shot of the bride’s dress – I loved it!

Instead of a cake, they had a tower of delicious-looking cupcakes!

Cupcakes! Unfortunately, I think the heat was getting to me & I just wasn’t up for one, but they looked truly amazing & I saw happy looks on the faces of those who did enjoy them! 🙂 (I’m sure my consumption of peanut butter M&Ms had nothing to do with my lack of sweet tooth!)

My last two pictures of the night are of me & my handsome date & the adorable centerpieces!

It was a great evening & I wish Steph & her new husband, Teddy, the best! 🙂 And in case you’re wondering… yes, she will be back from her honeymoon in time to do my hair next weekend! 😉

Now, off to enjoy some relaxation…

Cuddle time Are you attending any weddings this summer?

    LOVE that cupcake tower! My sister in law had a similar one, and I just can’t believe we didn’t decide to have one at our own wedding:

    Why, oh why are M&M’s so stinking delicious? Honestly, I think I could live off of peanut M&M’s and be happy!

    Those flowers are gorgeous. I love white in the summertime! It is so simply, yet elegant!

      Peanut M&Ms are delicious, but the peanut butter ones?! I have no control!

      I agree; I loved her centerpieces!

      I think so too! We’re doing a traditional cake, but I’m happy with cake in any form!

    Holy cow!!!! I was supposed to attend a wedding yesterday but the loooong drive kind of kept us away because we need to be ready to go this week!
