One of my favorite parts of the wedding weekend was simply seeing my best friends.
Maggie & Regan threw a Bachelorette/Lingerie Party all-in-one since everyone was from out of town! We did that Thursday night.
I think my favorite part of the weekend was Thursday night - Regan had invited everyone to stay the night at her house but only 5 of us stayed! It was Elizabeth, Regan, Maggie, Paige & me... (you'll put a face with a name after this post- this ladies are VIP to know). It was so much fun - lots of catching up & girl talk! I think having that time with them really calmed me down a lot! I am so thankful for them creating that special girl time for me!
Instead of rambling, I'll do what I know you readers want.... & that is post photographs!

|See Amy, to the right with the black maxi? She is my sister's sister in law and I am forever indebted to her! Her hardwork & dedication MADE that wedding happen.|
|See that woman to the left, that's Margo. She and Amy worked together to coordinate our wedding. She's my mom's best friend and like Amy, we couldn't have done it without her. I can never repay these two for the things they've done for me/us.|
