I had so many titles in mind for this post- #russellnantucketnuptials, my weekend, weekend review...and also my friends are better than your friends and my weekend was better than yours. All in good fun... :)

This past weekend I was in Nantucket for my college roommate's wedding! She was marrying her college sweetheart- oh the stories I could share.  BUCKA is what we like to call the couple- for Becca and Buck.  However, Buck is not too fond of it. So the official wedding hashtag was "RussellNantucketNuptials" but we all also used BUCKA.  If you follow along on Instagram, you saw an overload of photos. Sorry, not sorry.

Hands down it was one of the most gorgeous weddings I've ever seen.  Becca looked stunning- her dress was amazing. I wish I had it! I'm not really a crier- I don't typically cry at weddings, movies, etc. But I cried. I almost cried when our flight landed in Nantucket, I teared up when I first saw her Friday night, I teared up at the church. But I really truly balled at the reception.  Listening to Buck's brother's speech was so moving.  Buck and I have something in common that not everyone knows.  We both lost our moms in 2008, shortly after graduating college.  He and Becca were dating at the time and the way she stepped in for his family is incredible.  I know his pain and I know how blessed he and his family are to have Becca.  She is the sweetest person I know.  She has a huge heart and I know that she helped him through the toughest time in his life.  Jonathan, Buck's brother, told the funniest and best stories and referred to this time in their lives. I couldn't control myself!   

But on to the happy! Their love for one another is beautiful.  I was so happy to be there to celebrate with them! And not just with them- but with my awesome college friends! 

Our house for the weekend!
