As Promised…

I’m so sad this weekend is over!  I can’t begin to tell you how much fun the party was yesterday, and how lucky and loved I am by family and friends.  Picture 052

Andrew and I with our good friends Billy and Laura.  We are the executive board members of The Wine & Couch Club.  That means we drink wine and sit on couches, and we also take weekend retreats (read: vacations) together every year.  Laura and Billy are getting married this coming March!  I asked Laura to be one of my bridesmaids yesterday, and I’m so happy she said yes!

I bought a million balloons in our colors for the wedding.  We’re doing mostly teal and white with little a few red accents.

Picture 058

This is Jessica and her boyfriend Rob.  I also asked Jessica to be one of my bridesmaid’s and she also said yes.  Jessica was the photographer for the day, thanks Jess!!  (You may remember them from the camping trip a few weeks ago!)

This isn’t the best picture, but my parents gave us champagne flutes to use for our toast on our wedding day.  They look exactly like the ones that they used, there’s a little dove at the stem.  I absolutely love them!!

We got so many great cards from everyone, clearly this is my “aw” face, I might have teared up a few times.

Our cake, I didn’t eat any (since I don’t like cake,) but I definitely took a few licks of the frosting.

We had a mini photo shoot in front of the cake, I felt like I was on a red carpet with all the cameras flashing.

Laura told us this is the pose you have to do in front of your engagement cake.  Not sure I believe her, but we did it.

Bailey has a new best friend!

Andrew ruins pictures.

I couldn’t have asked for a better day!  I can’t believe how fast it all went!    Well I’m off to bed, I’m exhausted from all the fun!  I’ll be back to regular food blogging tomorrow!

    That’s too funny. If you wouldn’t have said “Andrew ruins pictures”, I never would have seen him in the background!

    I love your pics, and what a great gift from your parents! I can’t wait to plan my own wedding, although I’m sure it’s a lot of work. I love your wedding planning updates, they’ll be nice in the future!

    Sounds like a great party! You sound like me on the cake issue–I really don’t care about the actual cake, it’s all about the frosting for me!

    Awwww….your cake is beautiful and it looks like you had a fabulous time! 😀

  • 12. Danielle  |  July 28, 2009 at 10:40 pm

    Aw glad you had such a fantastic weekend! You looked great 🙂

  • 13. applec  |  July 29, 2009 at 9:38 am

    I like the wine and couch club. My kind of club – drink and sit!
    As for not liking cake…Danielle! OMG…you should get your taste buds checked…I think repairs are needed. What’s your fav. dessert? or you just not like sweets? If that’s the case, you are SO lucky not to hear the constant whining of the sweet tooth calling.
    Looks like you had a terrific party. You look so happy. Good for you and good luck with the wedding plans.

    Aw how nice! We have to get together an engagement party too. So glad you liked the gifts! I would have scarfed down that cake… hmm.. my weakness.

    Gorgeous dress too!

  • 16. Allison  |  July 31, 2009 at 12:58 pm

    What a great time! So glad all your friends said “yes” to being bridesmaids!

    I don’t like cake either! Everyone always things I’m so strange! Glad someone else out there is like me ! 🙂
