part one: the wedding


from august 6 - 15 i escaped the ins and outs of "normal" life. it was glorious! i mentally checked out from work and everyday life and thoroughly enjoyed every moment of it! okay well not EVERY moment...but that will come later (part two)...

it all started with a wedding celebration, which started with a girls night...



dinner at red 7...one of my favorite places in lafayette!



back to maria's for fun gifts and bachelorette games. ;)

saturday was getting hair done & pictures...


it was so fun having leah in the wedding party as well...because well all know how i feel about her. :)


isn't kimmy just gorgeous?!



then off to the rehearsal dinner, where we were served the most amazing meal i've had in awhile. 
major props to the brian furrer family!


and there he is..my beloved cousin, luke. the one member of his family who got to sit and enjoy the meal rather than cook or serve.



and finally, the big day...with one of the most beautiful brides i have EVER seen!



this was the joke of the weekend...our wraps were pretty restrictive, leaving us feeling a bit like robots.



it was so fun seeing friends at the reception...especially my dearest chrissy who flew in from india that morning and still came to the wedding looking fabulous! a month without her was far too long! but more to come about her in part two...

so right after the reception, i frantically changed out of my bridesmaid dress and drove up to the infamous lakehouse, where i would spend the next week...

stay tuned for the adventures of family and friends up and down the shoreline of lake michigan!
