A couple weeks ago my brother got married!! Being that everything this year has been canceled for me I was beyond excited for this day. I thought I would share with you guys about preparing for the wedding and the day of! Hope you enjoy!
Friday was full of a lot of preparation. My family and I traveled up to where the wedding was and starting setting up tables, chairs, etc. It was really fun to do that with my now sister-in-laws family! And let me tell you, everything was gorgeous!! It was all super simple but it was sooooo pretty!
After everything was set up we all kind of chilled. My parents went to the house we were staying at to drop everything off and we set up little things here and there but mainly enjoyed relaxing because the next day would be hectic.
Around 5:30-6ish people started arriving for the rehearsal dinner. Me and my younger sister didn’t do anything in the wedding but we enjoyed watching people trying to figure out where to go!😂 After the rehearsal was done we went and ate BBQ! Ahhhhhhhh! It was amazing! I had hardly eaten at all that day so it was even better! We cleaned everything up and sat around a bonfire for awhile. I wish I had gotten a picture of it but I was so tired a literally almost fell asleep at the fire. But we then all hopped in the car and drove to the house we were staying at and crashed.
Saturday morning was actually really nice. The wedding wasn’t until late afternoon so we chilled and I had some coffee! *which was delicious I might add* Around 10 we started getting ready. I curled my hair first because I knew it would take awhile and then went off and did my makeup. Now I am by no means amazing at makeup. Like I just normally slap on some mascara and call it a day but I decided to branch out for the wedding and do a full face of makeup. And I was actually very surprised by how well it turned out!
By this time it was close to 12 so I put my dress on and left to head over to the wedding venue with my sister and brother. Now when I say it was freezing……it was freezing. It was so pretty outside, but freezing😂. I mainly had a North Face sweatshirt on the entire time because I was cold and didn’t think about getting a cute wrap or anything. *Did I mention it was an outdoor wedding?*
Anyway, we got there, ate some food, and kind of chilled for awhile and helped out where we were needed. Then the guests started arriving. I hadn’t seen so many people in forever so it was really nice to talk to them.
The wedding started and it was beautiful! I cried. Shocking I know😂. But it genuinely was so perfect. After the wedding came my favorite part of any wedding ……..the reception!
Well technically pictures came first so here are some pictures!
Once pictures were done * I was literally shivering* we went inside the tent, got our table and warmed up. The introductions happened. Then we ate. Which made me soooooo happy because all I had eaten that day was and apple and crackers. We had breakfast food which was delicious!! Then we talked to people and took some more pictures and then came the wedding speeches. Which were very funny. And then the dancing started. I. LOVE. DANCING. AT. WEDDINGS!😂 It is always so fun. The send off happened which was so pretty with sparklers.
Then everything was done, which made me sad but we still had to clean up everything and it was raining while we were cleaning up. But it was fun. I was completely exhausted by the time we left. But we went and got our stuff at the house and drove home.
It was such a fun time! It was sad but so enjoyable!
That’s all guys! Hope you enjoyed this post! Have a lovely day!
