’tis the season – for a wedding!

on Friday [J], our friend david, & I made the 5 hour drive from chicago to des moines, IA.

we got caribou. & got comfy. [it was going to be awhile].

[anytime I snapped a photo, david would say “BTS” ..blog that shit. hahaha!]
 

when we arrived in des moines, it was rehearsal time!

after, we headed to Gino’s in west glen, for a scrumptious rehearsal dinner.

the boys were inseparable – just so happy to be together again!

[J], david, & the groom: matt.
 

and the soon to be newlyweds …

[beautful!!].
 

a great part about being in des moines: seeing my aunt! we got to stay with her friday night ..and [J] made best friends with her great pyrenees – phoebe.

then came the big day!

let’s just say, I had my fair share to drink the night before and was exhausted. so for me to get “wedding ready,” I had a long way to go. shout out to – kate @ the small things blog. you’re a lifesaver! I had zero clue what I would do with the hot mess on my head. so I went straight to her blog, picked a hairstyle [“the wrapped bun”], watched the tutorial {here}..and bam – I was ready! [she is truly great. check out her blog!].

at the ceremony …

everything was beautiful.

so, so happy for the two of you.

and now for the party [aka the reception].

[my beautiful friend, Jen & I. thank goodness for her & her husband, Reid for keeping me company while [J] was out doing groomsmen things – THANK YOU BOTH].
 

the first dance …

the bouquet toss …

[you bet your @$& I CAUGHT THE BOUQUET. hey [J], that means we’re next. wink, wink!].
 

me & my main man.

the beautiful bride & I.

then the DJ played “I’m too sexy for my shirt” and the groomsmen took it literally …

we had fun, to say the least. but most of all, we were so happy to be celebrating our friends’ marriage with them. we wish you both the best.

[an outfit post featuring my dress coming up this week].

happy tuesday.
