Annie and Tyler's big day!

Well, one of the things I wanted to tell y'all about was one of my closest college friends wedding two weeks ago.  It was SO much fun!  It was really neat because I am so used to summer weddings this was a very nice change - fall weddings are lovely because you can use such pretty colors and the weather is a little crisper.  Anyway, the weekend started off on Thursday with her bachelorette party.  We went down to her family's lake house and did bachelorette games and fun girly stuff (including a special guest which I am not going to get into because it was horrifying!).  Annie's sister, the MOH, did a magnificent job and put together bags and the whole evening - I think Annie really enjoyed it, here are a few pics:

so excited to be back together!

I thought I had a picture of the bags but I don't - they were adorable scout bags with bridesmaid survival kit items - so cute!

Friday we woke up and got ready for the bridesmaids' luncheon in Greenville.  I got to sit next to the flower girl, hehe, it was a lot of fun and Annie gave us beautiful blankets and pearl earrings.

beautiful arrangement!
Friday afternoon we hung out and the rest of my Sewanee friends arrived which was lots of fun...we didn't have too much time though because we had to be at the church at 6 for the rehearsal and then on to the rehearsal dinner!  

if only the bride to be had kept her eyes open!

Friday night we went out with a bunch of friends and met up with some other old Sewanee friends that came down for the wedding...ending the night eating popcorn in my bathroom with 2 of my favorite buddies :)

Saturday was the big day!  We all went out to breakfast which was great because it gave us a chance to catch up and just enjoy each others company.  As we returned from breakfast though, we realized we needed to get moving!  We went over and saw Annie getting her hair done:


And then headed back to the hotel to get ourselves ready.  I didn't get my hair done professionally (although I regretted not making an appointment) but I did try a side ponytail...I think it looked ok, what do you think?  We jumped in the car and went to the church to see Annie put on her dress, take pictures and get ready before the service!  The whole evening went by in a blur but here are some of the pictures I snapped:

on our way to the church!

As you can tell it was a fun-filled whirlwind weekend...aahhh and now I must get ready for work!

  6. Right now it seems like Wordpress is the best blogging
    platform out there right now. (from what I've read) Is that what you're using on your blog?

  7. I'm truly enjoying the design and layout of your website. It's a
    very easy on the eyes which makes it much more pleasant for me to
    come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a
    developer to create your theme? Superb work!

  8. Have you ever thought about adding a little
    bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say
    is important and everything. But think about if you added some great photos or video clips to give your posts
    more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but with images and clips, this
    website could definitely be one of the best in its field.

    Fantastic blog!

  9. Hi, Neat post. There is an issue with your site in internet explorer, would check this?
    IE still is the market leader and a huge portion
    of folks will leave out your magnificent writing because of
    this problem.

  10. I know this if off topic but I'm looking into
    starting my own blog and was wondering what all is needed to get set up?
    I'm assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I'm not very web savvy so I'm not 100% positive.
    Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Kudos
