We got in town Friday afternoon, and had a party at my parent's house that night. It was a lot easier having everyone come to us, instead of trying to meet up with just a few people for lunch or dinner. Plus, my parents got to see all our friends, too - which they always enjoy. Apparently we were having too much fun catching up all night because I didn't bring my camera out until people started leaving, so I only got a few pictures...
|Me & Gen - best friends from high school!|
|more high school best friends! Megan, Jenn, and Leslie (and Jenn's fiance, Bryan)|
|college friends! me and the mommies-to-be: Tricia & her baby boy and Kelly & her baby girl!|
|more high school best friends, Bo and Mark! I think they look like this in every picture I have of them from the past 10 years|
Saturday morning I woke up earlier than I cared to, thanks to this little guy...
|good morning, Hank.|
The weather was not as pretty as the forecast had predicted when we were packing for the weekend. Adrienne stayed with us, and we tried really hard to get a tan, but the sun was not cooperating. So we went for a nice long walk along the beach instead, which I can't really complain about :)
|we took Jessie with us, she was so excited! could not sit still for a picture.|
|super windy!! that crazy hair is the reason I usually wear a hat.|
For the most part, the weather held out for the big event that night. Dani & Mark's wedding was at Out of the Blue, which is in Jonathan's Landing. It was a great waterfront location.
|Leslie & Mike - their turn to say I do one year from that weekend! (but who's counting?)|
|Megan, me & Kelly|
|family shot - Leslie, me, Dad & Mom|
|a picture with the photographer :) - me, Jenn & Adrienne|
|my awesome parents!|
|Mark and his groomsmen anxiously awaiting the bride!|
|Dani was a stunning bride!|
|the beautiful bridesmaids|
|first kiss as husband and wife!|
The reception was inside the restaurant, and they had such fun beach-themed decorations.
|loved the coral placecard holders|
|and the coral wine stopper favors - we will get a lot of use out of these|
|Table 6 was the best! No, seriously, we had a competition.|
|Megan, Susan, Adrienne, me, Bo, Kim & Evan|
|cheers to Dani & Mark!|
|Kim and her man-wich|
Once the bride and groom came in, it was a non-stop party all night long! Such a fun reception.
|everyone joined them on the dance floor for the first dance!|
|and then they danced "for real"|
|Chi O! Katrina, Kelly, Megan, Kim, Leslie, Dani, Adrienne, me, Susan, and Jenn Hopkins!|
|Mike, (Kelly), Matt, and Evan|
|Mark and Bo|
|these two can't be together without doing their washing machine dance!|
|for once, this was not his fault|
|my camera died right after this picture...|
Sunday morning we saw them one last time at a brunch hosted by Mark's family at their awesome rental home. Great send-off!
|love the shirt Dani got him|
|could have stayed here all day|
And finally...before we left, we had drinks and lunch at Guanabanas. I miss the beach already.
Congrats, Dani and Mark! What an awesome wedding weekend :)
