#thefinalbow

A few weekends ago I had the honor of being a bridesmaid in the wedding of one of my bestest friends! (yes I know that is not proper grammar)  It was an incredible weekend!! I drove up early Friday morning to Raleigh so that I could make the bridesmaids brunch. And I'm so glad I did, it was so pretty and nice.

Dave and my dad drove up that afternoon.  After rehearsing, Dave and I attended the rehearsal dinner. It was hosted by Tyler's sweet parents at Jimmy V's in Cary, NC. I adore Tyler's family (and Kristina's!) and they did a great job with the dinner!  I did not stay out late because I didn't want to feel bad the next day. :)

Saturday was the big day! We spent the day getting ready at Kristina's parents' house- which I loved. We enjoyed mimosas, yummy food and great girl time! We all got our hair and make up done, another thing that I love.  Once we were all ready and dressed, we headed out for photos.

I loved our bridesmaids gifts! Including these white tops with our monograms.


Kristina was a stunning bride. Absolutely breathtaking.  And one of my favorite parts of the day was looking at Tyler when Kristina came down the aisle.  He had the biggest smile on his face, maybe a tear. Total happiness! You could just feel their love.  He truly adores her and you can just tell.

We spent the evening eating, dancing and drinking. I loved getting to see my best friend marry her true love.  I loved getting to see my college girl friends.  The weekend went by way too quickly! Can we please do it again?!



Here are some of my favorite weekend pics:

my friend, Brooks! Kristina gave us all those pearl necklaces from J.Crew!
