Weekend Wrap-Up

Today was the start of my wedding coordinating weekend!  When Andrea and Dustin got engaged the first thing Andrea asked me was if i would be her personal helper and of course I said yes.  I loved doing this!!  She and her mother did an amazing job on planning this wedding.  We met at Andrea's parents house for breakfast before we headed out to pick up the decorations from the rental place and then off we went to the church to drop off those decorations then went back to pick up the rest of the decorations for the reception.

 Then it was time to run home and get changed and ready for the rehearsal and rehearsal dinner.  The rehearsal dinner was held at the grooms restaurant, which I waitressed at all through nursing school and happened to be the way I met the groom and then bride. 

I was up way too early but I got up and ran to Target.  Then it was time to go help Andi get ready for the big day.  I met the girls at the church after they finished at hair appointments.  My job was to get Andi dressed and then stay for pictures to make sure she stayed looking gorgeous...not a hard job!!  She was cracking me up with some of the faces she was making!  She said she could do that in my pictures, not in the professional ones!!  Her photographer loved her and plans on doing more photo shoots with her for advertisements!! 

 So when they left the church to go do outside pictures, I was able to go home and shower and get myself ready for the actual wedding.  I was so excited to "poof" my hair!!  It's getting long!!  Love these girls so much!!  Even though I'm several years older than them you would never know!!

 Their first dance as husband and wife was the same song that Brooke & Julian danced to on One Tree Hill at their wedding!  I know, I'm crazy about that dang show!!

 These pictures above are when she had Mama's Song by Carrie Underwood dedicated to her mama!  It was a surprise and they both cried through the whole thing!!  It was precious!!

 We were all dancing fools all night long!!  (And I have the blister on my foot to prove it!)  Everyone had a great time and the wedding and reception were perfect!!  They were so ready to leave by the time it was over so they could drive to the airport to head to the Dominican Republic!!

So I woke up with a splitting headache this morning way to early so I took some Motrin and went back to bed.  I finally got up about 3 hours later and the headache was gone but I was exhausted, I layed on the couch for most of the day and took a little nap.  I was finally productive and got some things done this afternoon and evening.  It was a great weekend!!! (haven't I been saying that every weekend this summer??)
